No: Hoping you've had that wound checked to make sure it's not infected -- that would increase pain for sure. Also, combining pain medications with marijuana is not a good idea. Third, smoking marijuana is not a good plan if you value healthy lungs, clear perceptions, and your body's full ability to heal that wound. Be well.
