Cannabis does affect the heart.  It has some beneficial effects such as lowering blood pressure.  But it also can have some deleterious effects such as increasing heart rate.  You should speak to one of the baltimore medical marijuana specialists at Compassionate Care Consultants to find out if cannabis if safe for you.
Patients with high blood pressure or hypertension will find that their systolic blood pressure can decrease by as much as 30 mm Hg with a single inhalation of medical marijuana.  Patients should use caution in using cannabis especially if they have a cardiac history.
Those patients with atrial fibrillation and other cardiac tachyarrhythmias (fast heart beats) can have their conditions exacerabted with cannabis and should speak to a trained specialist at Baltimore Compassionate Care Consultants.  We offer recommendations on ratios with other cannabinoids that lessen the chances of ill effects and allow for a safe cannabis experience.

To date the theoretical risk of cardiac arrhythmias is just that, theoretical.  There are no conclusive studies that show cannabis causes heart attacks. Part of the cardiac risk derives from smoking and we never recommend smoking cannabis, we always recommend vaporizing or ingesting the medication.

I called their clinic as soon as I got my patient id #. Booking the appointment is quick and easy. I like that they ask me questions and make sure my condition is qualified and i have all the required paperworks before sending me to their clinic. Consultation took about 20 mins then i got my medical marijuana approval the same day.

Called their medical cannabis clinic to see if my condition can be approved. The lady on the phone was very helpful and asked me several questions to make sure I can be certified and I met all requirements before I come for an actual appointment. I don't regret choosing them to help me. I'll see them after a year for my renewal.

They gave me a compassionate discount on my appointment. Waiting for my ID # from the commission took days but this clinic is patient with me and assisted me until I was completely certified.

I made some research about medical marijuana and found it really effective for patients where the traditional method of treatment did not work. It helps a lot in pain management with very little side effects compared to those pain meds
