Cannabis and Your Cardiovascular System

Cannabis and Your Cardiovascular System  
  • With the passing of Bill C-45, the Cannabis Act, on Oct 17, 2018, Canada became the second country to legalize the use of cannabis, or marijuana. Canada joins Uruguay and nine U.S. states to permit recreational use.
  • With this legalization, the recreational use of cannabis will increase, and traditional forms of the drug will be replaced by more potent synthetic versions.
  • Patients and their physicians should be aware of some of the potential health effects and risks of cannabis use, including those on the cardiovascular system – namely the heart and blood vessels.

Ask your cardiovascular specialist for more information about Cannabis and Your Cardiovascular System.
