Heart disease and cannabis

Discussion in 'Marijuana Consumption Q&A' started by oherroprease, Jul 6, 2012.

  1. Reposting this from apprentice tokers:

    I've made the same thread before i started smoking but I wanted to get some new opinions. First of all, I was born with Aortic Stenosis, which is the narrowing of my aortic valve. I have smoked probably 15-20 times since I started which was last year. I haven't had a problem with my heart yet (with cannabis), but I'd like to know if I'm taking a big risk smoking with this condition. I can handle moderate exercise since i had surgery (before I started) to open up my valve and I'm generally healthy, but I'm a bit of a couch potato. I've heard that if I can take a brisk jog around the block, I'm generally healthy enough to use cannabis, is this true? Sorry for rambling but I just want to make sure (I know I should ask a doctor, but I just wanted some opinions).
     
  2. dude most certainly ask your doctor! heart condition isn't really something you wanna chance going south
     
  3. I would ask your doctor.. if you can't do that, I'd go to a medical forum or something where you can get better opinions.

    :D

    I'll try to, the only reason I'm asking is because I'll be smoking before a concert tomorrow, I've been fine the 15 or 20 times I've done it so far, so I figured I'd be fine. I don't wanna have a heart attack during the concert though lol.
