Recent Study Suggests Cannabis Use at Young Age Can Potentially be Linked to Heart Disease
Updated: May 22
The University of Guelph conducted a study, published by the Journal of Applied Physiology, which looked at the specific risks for cardiovascular disease in young healthy cannabis users. From their findings, they discovered how cannabis use could increase the risk of developing heart disease later in life.
According to the Economic Times Health World, the researchers noted how cardiac functions were lower in cannabis users in contrast to non-users; however, there is no difference in vascular functions that would be seen in cigarettes users.
Considering the various uses of cannabis and tobacco together, they stress the affect it can have on these assessments. Their research is currently still in progress as they become closer to understanding these risk factors. To learn more about the study visit the Economic Times Health World article at:
