MEDICAL MARIJUANA & HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE
Hypertension or high blood pressure is a common condition where blood flows at a higher pressure than normal through arteries.
120 +/- 20 (pulse) and 75 +/- mmHg (no pulse) – normal blood pressure. People with blood pressure above 140/90 are in danger and should be evaluated by a licensed doctor.
- “Marijuana Components has been found to reduce inflammation of blood vessel lining which widens the pipes and lowers blood pressure.” Dr. Rivers
Hypertension is caused by a restriction in blood flow; narrowing of the vessels or improperly functioning valves. High blood pressure is associated with vascular disease, inflammation, diabetes and insulin resistance, kidney problems, metastasis, thrombosis, infectious diseases and tumors.
Huh, even thinking about high blood pressure can cause high blood pressure. So don’t stress and continue reading relaxed:)
Medical Marijuana Lowers Blood Pressure
The good news is that Medical Marijuana medicines and products have been shown clinically to effectively lower blood pressure – with almost no harmful side effects. The two main anti-inflammatory elements of Medical Cannabis are:
- CBD (non-psychoactive)
- THC (psychoactive)
Some new medical marijuana strains offer different dose of the THC and CBD – which offer treatment to those who don’t want to get high or can’t handle THC.
Buddy, I’ll see you in Hell
- “My doctor is a prescription for hypertension all by himself, he was 3 hours late, charged $200 for a few minutes of so-called evaluation, told me if I feel suicidal, stressed, and whatever. that I should stop his drugs and come back for another round. I thought to myself, Buddy, I’ll see you in hell.” Medical Marijuana Patient
Doctors now have a lot of knowledge how medicinal marijuana works for us. They’ve found out that the human body has a endocannabinoid system with biochemical elements that control emotional functions and immune system – which directly relate to hypertension. Medical Marijuana cannabinoids work at the root, by mimicking the body’s endocannabinoids – to lower inflammation and reduce feelings of stress- that cause high blood pressure.
MMJ DOCTOR TESTIMONIALS
“We conclude that endo-Cannabinoids lowers blood pressure. Targeting the endocannabinoid system offers novel therapeutic strategies in the treatment of high blood pressure.” Dr. C. Cummings
“Very few therapeutic interventions are available to treat cerebral vasospasm, the unique mechanism of action of the cannabinoids may be useful (LOWERS BLOOD PRESSURE) in this regard.” Dr. Cecilia J. Hillard
“Our findings support a permissive role for the endocannabinoid system in the maintenance (LOWERS HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE) of hypertension and metabolic syndrome.” Dr. Chris L. Schaich
