It's safe to say that the dangers of cannabis are long when overhyped moral crusaders and war-on-drugs crew. But a new case study indicates that, under proper circumstances, the pot can cause serious health problems. According to a new paper, a 70-year-old Canadian man with preexisting cardiovascular disease suffered a heart attack soon after treating himself to a THC lololop.
The study was published this month in the Canadian Journal of Cardiology. Details of a 70-year-old man with a coronary artery disease, a condition in which the buildup of the plaque in the arteries weakens the flow of blood in the heart. At that time, the man was relatively stable for two years and took medicine to manage his condition.
Within 30 minutes of consuming a "marijuana lollipop" she hopes to help her fall asleep, though, the man began to become thinner, bleeding like a ghost, and suffering from chest pain. He was taken to the hospital and was diagnosed with a heart attack. But while he was successfully treated, he did not run away without being hurt-the function of his heart grew worse, as his ability to exercise and perform daily activities. "Marijuana can be a useful tool for many patients, especially for illness and dizziness. At the same time, like other medicines, it carries a risk and effect," studying with Alexandra Saunders, a cardiologist and chief resident in the internal medicine program at Dalhousie University in New Brunswick, said in a statement.
According to his doctors, human heart attack is a perfect storm.
For one, while he was dabbled in the pot of his youth, lollipop was the first product of cannabis he took for a long time. That is related because many products now contain more THC (the main component responsible for psychoactive high-drug) than several decades ago. The lack of human experience with the delayed effects of an eating-up also leads him to consume almost everything, giving him a higher dose of THC than people even now usually last. And the higher doses, along with her lack of tolerance, caused her the hardships of scary spells that caused her to worry. Anxiety sends her flexible cardiovascular system to excessive development, possibly causing a heart attack.
In addition to its effects of anxiety increase, cannabis is known to affect the cardiovascular system directly, including heart-drying in a few hours. But the connection between the use of cannabis and the risk of heart problems is poorly studied, with no clear conclusions. Two years ago, doctors published a controversial case study of an 11-month-old boy who died from a heart condition after ingesting cannabis. The case is considered possible as the first deadly cannabis overdose is documented. But doctors made their findings soon discovered, saying that they found only a link worth of higher education, not necessarily indicating that rice can be killed (indirectly, though, the increase the popularity of the drug can be caused by a small but true rise in deadly traffic crash "
" The result of this case is important to new marijuana legalization-hoping to use marijuana not to be criminalized, more research on cardiovascular The effects will come out, "they wrote.
As the US slowly walked towards cannabis legal status at state level-according to the state, Canada was fully adopted by cannabis for leisure activity last year.
