No Increase In Heart Attacks from Cannabis, Study Suggests

Cannabis and Heart Attack
Written by PsychePen

Using cannabis does not increase the risk of heart attacks among middle-aged adults, says a new study.

Summary: A recent study published in the American Journal of Cardiology has found that cannabis use is not linked to an increased risk of heart attacks among middle-aged adults. This conclusion was reached after adjusting for potential confounders such as BMI, alcohol and tobacco use, and physical activity.

New Study Clears Cannabis of Increase in Heart Attacks

Using cannabis does not increase the risk of heart attacks among middle-aged adults, as per data from the American Journal of Cardiology. The study revealed that individuals who consumed cannabis monthly for the past year did not have a higher risk of heart attack compared to non-users, unlike what usually people believe in. This data was adjusted considering factors like BMI, alcohol and tobacco consumption, and physical activity levels.

Interestingly, the study identified a heightened risk of heart attack among former cannabis users who had recently stopped consumption. This finding was termed “unexpected” by the researchers. The study was spearheaded by the University of California, San Diego, and it explored the connection between cannabis use and heart attacks in about 10,000 middle-aged individuals.

The researchers concluded that a history of monthly cannabis use for over a year prior to a heart attack was not linked to a subsequent heart attack. They emphasized the need for more research, especially longitudinal and experimental studies, given the growing accessibility to cannabis products globally.

The relationship between cannabinoids and cardiovascular function has been a topic of interest for researchers due to cannabis’s potential to elevate blood pressure and heart rate. However, consistent data indicating a significant risk has been elusive. A 2021 literature review of 67 studies stated that marijuana does not seem to be independently linked to excessive cardiovascular risk factors.

The study also highlighted the potential benefits of medical marijuana in treating conditions like anxiety, depression, and PTSD, which can indirectly impact heart health. It’s crucial to weigh the benefits of cannabis use against potential risks, and the latest findings suggest minimal concerns regarding heart health.
