Cannabis use in young adults linked to heart issues

by Travyan Suttle


A new study has linked heart issues to cannabis use in young adults.

According to the Canadian Medical Association Journal, frequent use of marijuana can drastically increase the risk of heart-attacks in young adults. 

Data for this study was used from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that focused on cannabis used by individuals ages 18-44 years-old. 

Researchers of the study also found that heart attacks among young adults were more likely to occur “among recent cannabis users relative to non-users.”

One of the suggested theories behind this cause is the increased potency among current cannabis products due to the increased THC levels found in its contents. 

The study also pointed out that more research is still needed on this matter.
