According to a new report of man’s case, the marijuana lollipop that has a very high dose of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol ) can cause heart problems in men. More specifically it can trigger a man’s heart attack.
According to a report, the Canadian Journal of Cardiology. A 70-year-old man who had the pain of osteoarthritis decided to try edible marijuana to reduce pain. The man had smoked some marijuana in his childhood, yet had never attempted an edible product.
One night to reduce pain and to sleep better the man consumed an entire marijuana lollipop. The lollipop contained a shocking amount of THC that is, 90 milligrams. This amount of THC is more than 12 times the dose in a typical joint.
The report said that, within half an hour of consuming marijuana lollipop, the old man experienced “dreadful mind flights,” followed by “squashing chest pain”.
Then the old man was taken to the hospital, after examinations the doctors said that the man had a heart attack. The man had not encountered a heart attack issue for more than 2 years. However, he had a history of heart problems but he was taking proper medications.
The report’s author said that the man had taken a huge amount of THC and his body could not bear that unexpected strain. This sudden and unexpected strain may have triggered the heart attack on man’s body. The high dose prompted anxiety and nervousness. It then increased the heart rate, level of stress and high blood pressure. They all are known to have unfavorable effects on the heart.
Marijuana is legal in Canada and in several U.S states for recreational uses. But the author of the report warned the people that marijuana can cause dreadful effects and may sometimes pose health risks.
How Marijuana is linked to heart problems?
The new case also links marijuana use with a heart attack just like other several reports. For example, the doctors also reported a case of a young man who had a heart attack after smoking marijuana. Many examinations have also linked the use of marijuana with many heart attacks and heart failures.
But still, there is not enough scientific evidence that can determine how marijuana causes bad effects on the heart. It was published by a review study last year.
Dr. Neal Benowitz, a professor of medicine at the University of California, San Francisco wrote about marijuana in an editorial. He said that marijuana can increase the risks of heart problems in three ways:
- Through the immediate impact of THC on the cardiovascular framework.
- By indirect impacts of THC related to tension and nervousness.
- Through the inhalation of smoke from a pot.
A question arises here that, what the doctors recommend for the patients of heart disease who want to use marijuana products? Benowitz said there isn’t any prove available that can address this inquiry. However, he said that for the patients who want to use marijuana products should only take products that have CBD only. THC can have adverse effects on people with heart problems, so they should avoid using them.
Benowitz also observed that some marijuana products have multiple servings of THC, such as marijuana lollipop. That’s the reason that marijuana lollipop can trigger a heart attack.
Study Opens Gateway For Using Marijuana For Treatment Of PTSD
As the cannabis industry is evolving and generating large-profits, scientists and researchers are also focusing on discovering more about marijuana. Moreover, researchers aim to find better treatment possibilities, dose adjustments, and products that can help individuals. A recent study suggests marijuana can help treat PTSD, reports Forbes.
However, the study is under process and has been approved by FDA, for phase 2 trials. Sue Sisley, MD, discussed her study goals and discoveries in a symposium for marijuana, internist, and telemedicine. Her study aims to use marijuana to treat people who suffer from PTSD disorder.
Other researchers, research institutions, and companies are also working on similar projects. The Battle Brothers Foundation also gets approval for researching the use of cannabis to combat PTSD in veterans. Moreover, there is an urgent need to treat PTSD in veterans as the suicide rate due to post-traumatic stress disorder is getting higher.
Sisley Cannabis Research For PTSD treatment
Sue Sisley was for many years an anti-marijuana. However, her perspective regarding cannabis changed when she was treating veterans. While she was treating them, she discovered that the veteran community uses higher doses of marijuana. Moreover, overdoses of the drug occur in them, and they start using addictive medications.
For her study, the University of Colorado gave $2.15 million in funds. Moreover, the study subject is one of a kind and will enable marijuana-use to treat PTSD. She was able to get approval for phase 2 trials after seven years of hard work. Sixty veterans were part of the research trials. They were given 12 percent THC and 12 percent CBD for treatment.
Individuals show improvement in symptoms and overall condition. The study monitors biomarkers for inflammation, DSM-5, objective sleep measurement, and Inventory of Depression and Anxiety Symptoms.
Battle Brothers Foundation Research
The Battle Brothers Foundation is working with NiaMedic to determine marijuana use for treating PTSD. Furthermore, the national Independent Review Board is an independent committee that allows both groups to perform the research project.
To determine the effects of marijuana on treating psychotic disorders, the researchers will enroll 60 California veterans. Individuals will also receive limited cannabis doses for treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder.
According to Bryan Buckley, 22 veterans are dying due to the effects of post-traumatic stress. Moreover, they become addicted to opioids.
Cases of post-traumatic stress disorder in U.S. troops have increased remarkably in the last 13 years. It is the need of the hour to research and formulate better techniques for improving the condition of individuals suffering from PTSD.
Moreover, the veterans that have been offering services in Afghanistan and Iraq suffer from a psychotic disorder. Data analysis will occur in the presence of medical doctors and experts.
Marijuana Use And PTSD
Individuals have been given cannabis edible products for medical use. The controlled drug is psychoactive that elevates mood, makes individuals relax, and generates a feeling of pleasure.
Individuals that have been through immense trauma, stress, and pain are more likely to develop post-traumatic stress disorder. Moreover, individuals that experience or witness any natural disaster, an accident, a terrorist’s act, war or rape, death threats, and sexual violence are likely to suffer PTSD. Marijuana can provide a solution to the problem and symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder.
The research subject will open a new field for use of cannabis and improves the condition of marijuana. However, completion of research requires some time, and to obtain large-scale research results research on a wider scale needs to occur.
The efforts of Sue and the Battle Brothers Foundation will yield a positive outcome separately. Moreover, it will provide hope to individuals suffering from post-traumatic-stress-disorder.
Cannabis Industry, Celiac Disease, And Processed Flour
The cannabis industry shall learn from the errors of the flour and cheese industry. Use of certain products, including bleached-flour and consumption of mass gluten, causes multiple diseases, including celiac disease. Due to this reason, many countries around the world including the U.K. and China restrict the use of mass-gluten in the production of flour and cheese.
However, the North American Flour Industry uses two restricted bleaching agents, namely calcium peroxide and benzoyl. Moreover, they use these bleaching agents in the formulation of flour. The possibly damaging point is that these bleaching agents lead to the development of autoimmune diseases and celiac.
The cannabis industry must solve and prepare beforehand for various problems to continue evolving. Moreover, the marijuana industry has been under suppression for a longer duration. Thus, it must take every step considering the consequences and make efforts to evolve.
Vape pen formulation also causes oxidation issues similar to the flour-industry. So, the cannabis industry needs to modify formulation formulas and techniques to produce products that do not lead to diseases. Moreover, there are chances that these diseases can lead individuals to death. Thus, there is also an immediate need to cut off ingredients from processed foods, flour, and other products that can cause cancer or other autoimmune diseases.
What Is Celiac Disease?
Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease and is a genetic disease. People with the genetic-disease may or may not have symptoms. However, people with asymptomatic celiac disease can develop symptoms later in life.
Furthermore, the risk of developing celiac disease increases due to various factors, including excessive gluten consumption and eating a lot of processed foods. The main ingredient causing autoimmune-disease is benzoyl peroxide, as it affects flesh and gut bacteria.
Moreover, benzyl peroxide irritates the skin, causes an antibiotic response, and generates free radicles. Overall, it damages the body and causes the development of autoimmune diseases and cancer. The cannabis vape pens also change color after some time, and oxidation of its agents causes an alteration in its formula leading to pathological conditions.
Excessive Gluten Consumption And Cannabis
Cannabis industrialists must not use ingredients that can damage the body organs or cause any disease. Moreover, the industry shall avoid using ingredients that it uses to prevent the decolorization of vape pens. Moreover, such chemicals are capable of increasing the risk of autoimmune diseases like celiac disease.
Individuals with celiac disease have high amounts of enzyme elastase. Gluten breakdown occurs in the presence of enzyme elastase. After breaking, it converts to an amino acid and is considered by the body as toxins. The body begins to fight itself, leading to the initiation of autoimmune diseases like celiac disease.
Excessive gluten consumption results in a large amount of amino acid production. Moreover, the body considers the amino acid as a toxin and starts to fight the cells containing it, leading the body to fight its cells. Furthermore, mass gluten consumption causes microbiome disruption and strips away the microbiome barrier.
Benzyl Peroxide And Other Food Alterations
In addition to gluten, benzoyl peroxide and other such agents in processed flour and cannabis products can have a peeling impact. The bleaching agents erode intestinal-lining, leading to breakage of the wall and damaging the digestive and immune system.
Food is changing genetically, and alterations in the soil are also occurring at a faster rate. Moreover, genetic alterations in the plant seeds cause other beneficial effects, but few are life-threatening.
Furthermore, cannabis cultivation and production need new modified methods for maintaining a variety of marijuana. Over the coming years, how the food industry and crop cultivation changes for the better are yet unclear. However, researchers need to formulate better techniques for future healthy varieties of food and crops.
