Usually people talk about harmlessness of cannabis , but here we get a twist from AHA researchers that the delta-9 THC is the main psychoactive substance found in cannabis but also it gives some good effects like keeping the brain activities slow down which is used to treat people with anxiety and depression.
Research by AHA
In this research by AHA, researchers found that the person consuming marijuana daily have 34% more chances of heart attack then those who are not consuming cannabis daily. The main relation between marijuana and heart disease is this substance delta-9THC which is the main molecule for the ‘trip’ which people get after smoking marijuana.
In an other research done by the same researchers it was found that people who are smoking cannabis and also have some additional disease like diabetes and blood pressure are more volunerable to this heart attack and stroke.
People with age more than 70 are at more risk of this problem because In this age, consuming marijuana can be very adverse for cardiovascular health and can lead to many heart problems including heart attack. So people in this age must avoid smoking cannabis and keep focus on their meals and diet.
