It is in fact venomous. This is a kind of Huntsman Spider, either in the Heteropoda or possibly the Curicaberis genera. They aren’t known to have dangerous levels of venom for humans. Just tell your friend to keep the bite clean and to keep an eye on it. Most complications, from spider bites, occur from secondary infections. Like bacteria getting into the bite wound.
