Re: Can Marijuana cause a heart attack?
If you heart beats fast enough it can give up the ghost.

If you suffer from any anxiety or panic attacks whilst smoking weed, the paranoid effect that can be produce may in fact send your pulse sky high, which could essentially, give you a heart attack.

But then, its not the canabis that kills you.

Re: Can Marijuana cause a heart attack?
Weed cant really do this but this is depending
on the Way how to consume it,
mixed with Tobacco in a 100 Cm Hookah is bad
but a small Stick should never kill you,
a total different thing is artificical THC
like we can buy from Chinese Vendor,
that Stuff can be lethal and we see many
Patients in the Emergency Room.

Avoid all the Spice, Potburri, Herbal Smokes, etc.,
you can't be sure what you get,
this artificical THC is very potent and a mistake
in the Factory happen very often!

Re: Can Marijuana cause a heart attack?
I've smoked weed for over 25 years, I'm certainly an advocate of legalization, and when compared to her drugs and alcohols cannabis is the best alternative in my opinion.

However, as someone said earlier, cannabis can induce paranoia, and also panic attacks. Another important issue is how in particular skunk has been farmed. Too many street farmers grow the cannabis in lets say shite conditions and don't let the cannabis grow at its best.

Much of the street cannabis has a very high THC content which of course is what we all want - however there are 400 other compounds, the skunk in particular that what is grown quickly and with too many chemicals is missing very important compounds which balance the effects of cannabis on the human brain.

I have not ha any 'normal' weed in years until about a month ago - a friend gave me some old type Thai weed. I had the best feeling from cannabis I'd had in a long time. It made me realise we need some of the issues of badly grown skunk. People often say - it's a natural plant given to us by nature, and it is true - but in the last decade we have fucked about with what this beautiful natural plant - Skunk is not natural if it is badly and quickly grown, stay with the natural genus and you will never have any issues, don't believe the hype that 'skunk' is all natural, it is not.

Yes indeed, skunk has high THC levels, I would be more concerned with the shit that these bastards spray on the plants to bulk them out, just to increase their profit marjins. Remember the soapbar hash, full of all sorts of additives. This shit causes serious health problems.

Certainly remember that old fecking 'formula' shite -

Your spot on, too many are definateley spraying all sorts of shit on them, after smoking that old Thai weed last month, I really do miss the old natural stuff.

I get really annoyed that those who love the weed don't complain more about the shit that is going around, and it will cause health problems, for me this is the best and main reason why it should legalised and regulated. I love weed i just hate what people are doing to this beautiful god given plant - Kudos my Irish friend.

Re: Can Marijuana cause a heart attack?
No, but you, like me and many others, may have issues with smoking marijuana. For some it can induce severe panic attacks, a sort of conciousness sensitivity, the feeling that everything and everyone is staring at you or listening to you,etc. Prolonged usage continues to make it worse, I was very aware of how marijuana made me feel and 9/10 it would be bad, but I kept smoking and lying to myself about how it made me feel, because you a portion of it would feel great, but it would always be a small part and soon it would spiral and get worse until the high faded. Now I love marijuana and support it, but for some unlikely few, it just isn't right for them. There were certain strains though, that would make me feel great and the panic attacks would never happen, but it's hard to be consistent with strains for very long.

This is only a product of social conditioning, cannabis is not intrinsically anxiogenic by any means, it actually reduces anxiety on par with benzodiazepines.

Re: Can Marijuana cause a heart attack?
I'm in my mid 50's. I used to smoke pot like a chimney. Seems like in my 30's it started to make my heart go really fast, like 140 BPM, and I'm sitting in a chair so it's not like I can stop running to make it slow down. If I smoke now it's just a timy bit, like one beer. I think if I got really stoned I might have a problem.

"thats why u need legal herb like the med mj here in cali, its all tripple bars grade A mang."

I say it again and will never stop saying it - Legalization and regulation should be the only option for this wonderful weed.

I stop smoking it very often because of the shite on the street, I am seriously considering growing a few plants myself, because of the new sentencing guidelines here in the UK for cannabis production.

If I got caught my argument would be thus:

A) It stops me buying from dangerous criminals.

B} It stops me buying potentially harmful cannabis (sprayed and mixed with dangerous chemicals).

C) It should be my right has a 'free man' in a democratic society to grow a plant that if grown correctly only offers health benefits.

D) I am able to manage my arthritis, which I was born with (septic) without ever using costly and potentially dangerous pharmaceutic drugs.

The legal position on this drug is just illogical, we have all read the conspiracies of why this is the case, but it is still so annoying of how illogical it is.

Re: Can Marijuana cause a heart attack?
From personal experience, my father an 80 yr old heart patient was told to smoke it instead of drinking alcohol by his cardiologist.

Don't think he would have given him the above advice if it would cause another heart attack.

My father took to it like a duck to water, said he wasted all those years drinking when he could have been smoking, lol.

In the right person, anything can cause a heart attack, even a glass of iced tea or a birthday party

[link to www.nhlbi.nih.gov]

Long QT syndrome (LQTS) is a disorder of the heart's electrical activity. It can cause sudden, uncontrollable, dangerous arrhythmias (ah-RITH-me-ahs) in response to exercise or stress. Arrhythmias are problems with the rate or rhythm of the heartbeat.

People who have LQTS also can have arrhythmias for no known reason. However, not everyone who has LQTS has dangerous heart rhythms. When they do occur, though, they can be fatal.

Try reducing the amount that you consume each time you partake.

This is from the CBD that is a serotonergic 1a agonist. It does indeed speed up the heart, but the ceiling to this effect is very low. It cannot increase heartrate to a dangerous level in individuals without SEVERE life-threatening heart problems.

All cannabis is generally sedative, if you feel stimulation it is largely psychosomatic and can be alleviated by just trying to chill out.

great thing about cannabis that separates it completely from opiates and other deadly drugs is that there are no cannabinoid receptors in the respiratory tract.. so if you pass out you still continue to breathe just fine.

Re: Can Marijuana cause a heart attack?
Here is one for you all, based on my experiences, couple of years ago I used to have panic attacks from smoking MJ, heart palpations and that type of thing. It really freaked me out because the symptons were very real and disturbing, I thought that I had developed health issues from smoking and it was time to quit. What I discovered was that I also used to chew large amounts of sugar free gum, at this point I found out about aspartame in the gum and quit the gum, guess what, symptons cleared up, continued to smoke MJ and reverted back to the days of my early smoking, nice mellow highs, with no nasty side effects with no heart palpations.
I believe that the aspartame interacts with the MJ in a negative way, just like aspartame does in every other negatave way..
