Daily use of marijuana raises risk of heart disease, study finds | CNN
Using marijuana every day can raise a person’s risk of coronary artery disease, or CAD, by a third compared with those who never partake, a new study found.
“A growing body of evidence suggests that cannabis is not entirely without harm and may actually cause cardiovascular disease,” said lead study author Dr. Ishan Paranjpe, a resident physician at Stanford University. The study — which has not yet been published -— will be presented Sunday at the annual meeting of the American College of Cardiology.
“Thus, the decision to use cannabis must be carefully weighed against the potential for serious heart disease,” Paranjpe said."
It goes on and gives the possible reasons as to why.
The study is not able to distinguish if edibles do the same harm as smoking or vaping cannabis.
It seems that the article is suggestive that it could be the act of inhaling burning plant materials
Plus, they seem to suggest that they cannot distinguish between vape and plant combustion on the lungs, of which are completely different affects on the lungs and heart.
Is it the chemicals in cannabis causing the heart disease or smoking it?
It seems that vaping in itself is a cause of heart disease.
“Vaping was designed to be addictive. Vaping manufacturers knowingly put you at risk. Federal survey data revealed that compared with nonusers, people who use e-cigarettes have a: 71 percent higher risk of stroke. 59 percent higher risk of heart attack or angina. 40 percent higher risk of heart disease .”
According to Webmd. I think it tested for nicotine vaping though.
Cannabis thc/cd vaping doesn’t have to contain nicotine.
This was my first thought, as well. Inhaling any sort of smoke into your lungs is unhealthy, no matter what Willie Nelson says
Hey there! I read the article you shared, and it’s concerning to hear about the potential risks of daily marijuana use. It’s important to be aware of the potential health effects before making the decision to use cannabis. It’s good to know that research is being done in this area to inform us better.
