MJ: Irregular Heartbeat?

Discussion in 'Medical Marijuana Usage and Applications' started by AAckley1, Sep 19, 2007.

  1. So one day about 2 years ago, I was doing my bowling thing. Started getting chest pains, I could feel what some describe as a heart murmur. At this time, I was smoking very lightly, maybe once a month. My parents take me to the emergency room as heart disease and heart attacks are very common in my family. They hook me up to the EKG, make me take a CT Scan (worst feeling I've ever had in my life, that radioactive dye sure likes to pool up in your penis area), the whole gammit. They tell me nothing is wrong. I consistenly tell them to just hook me up to a heart monitor as it will show it and they refuse.

    Fast forward, Now, it does it all the time. The only time it doesn't is when I'm buttered. Which happens almost daily or more than than.:D Do you think this was caused my MJ or is solved by MJ?
  2. If you do have a heart mummer its not from weed, but it can definitely be aggrivated by it, because marijuana increases your heart rate.
  3. I believe it could help.

    A chemical in cannabis can help ward off strokes and heart disease, scientists believe.

    Swiss researchers found THC, one of 60 cannabinoids in the drug, helped stop the narrowing of arteries to the brain and heart in a study of mice.
  4. when i was in middle school i had to get a physical for football and they stupid nurse failed me cuz of a heart murmur...i went to my doctor and they told me it was no big deal and its a very common thing, it just causes an irregular heatbeat and its actually common in people who are very active

    sometimes i have slight chest pains when i smoke but i think thats when i over do it or im so ripped all i can do is sit there and feel my heart beat...

    from what i have read about bud is that it actually helps clear artieries and such so i don think its a bad thing...and another thing is that since it does slightly rais the heart rate over time it can help make your heart stronger as its used to pumping a little faster than normal
  5. Your marijuana use probably did not induce your heart murmurs, even though it's not impossible. It is probably more genetic because you said your family had a history of that. But what the hell do I know, I'm no doctor.

    I have family members with heart murmurs and they seem pretty intense. Glad to hear MJ helps.
