You may love smoking weed, but it does not love your heart, according to the American Heart Association’s new scientific statement on marijuana.

“The American Heart Association recommends that people not smoke or vape any substance, including cannabis products,

because of the potential harm to the heart, lungs and blood vessels,” said Dr. Rose Marie Robertson,

the deputy chief science and medical officer for the American Heart Association, in a statement.

 

Smoking weed and coronavirus: Even occasional use raises risk of Covid-19 complications

The new scientific statement, published Wednesday in the AHA journal Circulation,

Examined existing research on the connection between cannabis and the heart.

The statement found using weed has “the potential to interfere with prescribed medications”

As well as “trigger cardiovascular conditions or events, such as heart attacks and strokes,”

Said clinical pharmacologist Robert Page II, who chaired the medical writing group for the statement.

Anyone planning to use marijuana should discuss possible risks with their health professional first,

Said Page, who is a professor in the department of clinical pharmacy and physical medicine/rehabilitation,

At the University of Colorado Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences in Aurora, Colorado.

Today’s high potency weed raises risk of anxiety and addiction, study says

“If people choose to use cannabis for its medicinal or recreational effects, the oral and topical forms,

For which doses can be measured, may reduce some of the potential harms,” Page said in a statement.
