How does wound healing work?

Complicated process

Diabetes
Multiple factors involved. White blood cells and platelets travel to the site for immune system and blood clotting. Collagen fibers heal across, and new blood vessels grow in. Collagen fibers remodel. Proper body protein level and appropriate vitamin levels help with healing. Poor nutrition, diabetes, cigarette smoking, infection, poor blood supply, prednisone can delay or prevent proper healing.

Does cannabis affect wound healing?

Yes

Wounds
Pharmacologically, the influence of smoking on wound healing is complicated, and neither nicotine alone nor any other single component can explain all of the effects of smoking on wounds. What is certain is that smoking cessation leads to improved repair and reduces wound infection (Sorensen et al., 2003; Lauerman, 2008). www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2903966

How does aromatherapy work in wound healing?

Minimal

Aromatherapy
Although Psychological issues may complicate wound healing and Aromatherapy may have therapeutic benefits, the actual use of this in Organized Wound Care is unusual. Many different Aromatherapy compounds are used for a variety of conditions, but none that I know are specific for wound healing.
