  1. Hello everyone my name is Chase. I'd like to start off by saying that i was recently diagnosed with Nodular sclerosis Hodgkins disease stage 3, and am receiving chemotherapy treatments. i have received three treatments so far and the side effects are becoming worse.
    On a side note i would also like to add i was also diagonosed with supraventricular tericardia about 10 years ago ( i am 19 years old now ) and as of three years ago i have stopped taking medication for it and i have had no problems at all with anything from it.
    With that being said. i have smoked marijuana about 5 times in my life each time i have experienced very high heart rate. i would freak out kinda. think i was going to have a heart attack. so i had stopped not having a problem not smoking because it didn't bother me not doing it. that was roughly a year or two ago.
    So pretty much what i am asking is because of my current situation i would like to start smoking. hoping that it could help my effects of chemo be less. and maybe help me able to actually eat and gain a few pounds. the question though is my pre-existing condition of supraventricular tericardia have any high-risks of having something along the lines of a heart attack? Or was the effects of smoking that happend before just me worrying to much (becuase that is something that do)
    Any suggestions are very much appriciated :p
  2. Chase, hon, welcome to GC! I collect MMJ studies and share them (I'm a compulsive educator ;)). At least some of your questions can be answered by clicking the first link in my sig, scrolling down to these sections "Cancer - lymphoma", "Chemotherapy" and "Heart Disease" and just begin reading.

    Cannabis can do much more for you than "just" ease your chemo problems!

  3. First, please read all the wonderful info that Granny Storm Crow is always so gracious to share. There is a wealth of knowledge to be found, and she keeps it conveniently at our fingertips for us. Thank you, Storm Crow. Secondly, I think you should visit the Incredible Edible section of this forum, found under Recreation. I think that for your situation edibles and tinctures would suit you best. Smoking anything is bad for your health, so please check that out.

    Good luck, and take care.
