The link between heart problems and Marijuana lollipop

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.

Is Cannabis A Hero For Women With Menstrual Problems?

Published

women

Over 75% of menstruating women become a victim of PMS worldwide. The root cause of this condition is not under human knowledge yet. However, most people believe it is due to the hormonal changes at that time of the month. The symptoms differ from person to person and can go up to 150 different PMS symptoms.

How is CBD beneficial for curing PMS?

World Health Organization has labeled cannabidiol to be safe for medical purposes and has only mild side effects at the very best. The hemp derivative product has less than 0.3 percent THC, which means it will not intoxicate the user. Due to this factor, CBD is legal all over the US.

Using CBD daily for PMS is quite convenient, go with the recommended dosage on the product and then gradually increase the dose until relief. Experiencing fatigue or diarrhea as side effects can indicate too much intake of the product.

Cannabidiol can be helpful in offering relief to women having mild to moderate PMS symptoms. Due to variation in the effects of product use in each woman, the efficiency depends on the types of symptoms. These symptoms are variable with each month. Consequently, each woman can have different results for every cycle.

Can CBD cure different PMS symptoms?

Mood swing is the biggest problem when talking about PMS. A typical mood swing would involve anxiety, frustration, and even depression.

In 2014, a research analysis put forward the proof that supported CBD usage for depression. Researchers suggest that CBD has an antidepressant effect. However, scientists have found these results through animal studies. Therefore, there is a need to do research on humans to study the effects of cannabis on mental health clearly.

Another review in 2015 suggested the positive influence of CBD oil for managing anxiety in humans. It has suggested that besides anxiety, CBD can help in social anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorder, and more.
Sleep apnea and insomnia are common problems in PMS and make sleeping difficult.

The constant fatigue and irritation can lead to a dreadful day ahead. To counter these problems, CBD provides good relief against the fuss and help in improving the quality of sleep. However, these are evidence-based on animal studies.

Nausea in PMS

Nausea and emesis are common symptoms of PMS, and CBD is helpful in addressing these problems in an efficient manner. In 2011, a study revealed that CBD could manipulate the endocannabinoid system in humans and provide relief from nausea and vomiting. The study appears in the British Journal of Pharmacology.

Acne problems in PMS

Another problem that women face during PMS is their skin breaking out. This is highly disturbing as the irritating acne damages their skin to the most. However, CBD comes to the rescue in this situation as well. Its anti-inflammatory properties alleviate inflammation and redness in the skin.

Moreover, the antioxidants present in the compound help fight off bacterial infection, thus decreasing acne.

In short, CBD has proved to be beneficial for dealing with PMS in a variety of ways. However, there is a dire need for more research on both the condition and the potential cure.
