Fibromyalgia Heart racing weed

Discussion in 'Medical Marijuana Usage and Applications' started by 420_SOS, Aug 1, 2019.

  1. Does cannabis makes your heart race at times? Do you think strains play an important part or is it more about the consumer?
     
  2. Weed increases your heart rate. All weed as far as I know does. People notice it and while high they think about it and get freaked out which makes your heart beat faster and the cycle continues. It's normal and nothing to worry about. The worrying is the worst thing u have to well, worry about. Of course if you have a heart condition or other specific health problems it may be a serious concern in that case. But I'm just a stoner on the internet not a doctor so I'd leave that up to individuals to talk to their Drs with or to do their own research on.

  3. Yes, especially sativa or after a big dab but I know it will stop. You can check your hb on your phone

  5. Smoking of any kind increases heart rate.
    The onset of high from smoking or edibles will increase the heart rate, and can be dangerous for anyone with a heart condition.
    It's always been strange to me that heart rate increases with cannabis while also decreasing blood pressure. I check my BP regularly when indulging, and notice the processing method of various extractions can severely alter the degree of racing heart. I have been able to stay away from BP medicines because of consistent indulging for years. When I have quit using mj, my blood pressure creeps up. If heart issues were part of my genetic make up I would be screwed, and scared to proceed experimenting without a ton more caution.

    Here's an interesting article
    How Does Cannabis Consumption Affect Heart Rate?

  6. Yes you are right, hadn't thought that the fact that cannabis races heart rate could worry people and make it worse.

    Definitely, researching and consulting a specialist is the way to go if someone experiments a "negative" reaction when they medicate themselves, thx!

  7. Thanks I posted an article too but yours is really helpful too, yes, it's weird how it lowers blood pressure but increases heart rate, and yes you extraction methods together with concentration levels play an important part on how cannabis affect people.

    However, some have expressed to me how they never feel an increased pulse when they smoke but I think they might be lying

    Gladly you have been able to use mj as real medication with more than positive results, it's the type of testimonies we need to push out there to try and give cannabis the recognition it surely deserves to help opposers, and the uneducated change their perspective, thank you for sharing the article and a little of your story

  8. One of the side affects of consuming THC is anxiety and paranoia which can also increase heart rate. Strains have an affect to a certain degree. Depending on levels of THC and other terpenes in that strain also a big player is level of CBD. CBD can help reduce the anxiety and panic feeling you sometimes get. I ALWAYS consume my THC with CBD as I like a more easy going mellow buzz.

  9. Smoking indica will also reduce the anxiety and panic also mentioned above

  10. This is a true statement.
    IMO Indica/sativa highs really come down to the level and type of terpenes that each strain contains. I've smoked indica dominant strains that have made me paranoid as fuck and smoked sativa dom strains that made me drool with no ability to think past the ripples in the river.

    Not all "brick weed" is bad, depends which part of Mexico it came from and from who, in fact, in the mid 70's some of that was the best I've smoked in my life, besides the very popular thai stick (Vietnam) at that time which you don't see anymore.

    Just because it don't happen to you, doesn't mean it don't happen to others, everbody's body and tolerance is different.

    Don't mock the old school, a lot of us old hippies still smoke ;) :)
