    Ok, so I recently found out I have a irregular heart beat (dont remember the specific name). Anyways I was wondering is smoking weed dangerous to such conditions as it can increase your heart rate?

    Also I have never noticed my heart racing after a session.....

    On a personal note-I soley vape (is this different for heart racing?)-smoking in my opinion is nasty, the "high" makes me droggy and stuff, so could it be dangerous, is it time to sell my SSV, and Magic Flight?

    no, just give them to me, I'll gladly take em off your hands.

    I found this paragraph on the internet, and looks like you shouldn't smoke weed. sorry.

    Effects on the Heart

    Within a few minutes after smoking marijuana, the heart begins beating more rapidly and the blood pressure drops. Marijuana can cause the heart beat to increase by 20 to 50 beats per minute, and can increase even more if other drugs are used at the same time. Because of the lower blood pressure and higher heart rate, researchers found that users' risk for a heart attack is four times higher within the first hour after smoking marijuana, compared to their general risk of heart attack when not smoking.

    I say if you are healthy enough to have sex you are healthy enough to get stoned.
    Ask your doctor.

    They shorten heart rate and breath. Some opiates have caffeine in it so it could even raise it

    I think every drug has something to do with your heart rate

    Start taking magnesium suppliments. They will help to regulate the rhythm of your heart. And they are very cheap. Most muti-vitamins dont have enough magnesium in them.

    If you're young with a bum heart, Qigong in the mornings and before sleeping should help your heart fix itself.

    About five years ago I was drinking 5-6 tall, strong whiskey and cokes every night. Going through the "big" bottle every two days. Most mornings I would wake up feeling like shit. Sweaty, bloated, increased heart rate, and not remembering what the hell I did or made. Did this for several years. I decided to slow it down a bit. Switched to red wine. (It's good for you right? In small doses.) Well, to get that buzz, I was drinking 2 to 2 1/2 bottles by myself every night. Still waking up sweaty, bloated, and increase heart rate. But not as bad as the whiskey.

    I have been chewing for 23 years. Alcohol and tobacco are not good for the body. Two years ago I started growing and burning again.

    I work from home now and do my best to only smoke "after" hours and follow it up with 2-3 beers every night. Yard work gets done. My car stays clean. I build things that actually work in the morning. I go to bed WITH my wife. I wake up feeling great. No sweats, no bloating, no increased heart rate, and I can remember everything.

    Don't know why I wrote this up. Reading about the increased heart rate reminded me of the bad ol days.

    If you really want to help your cardiovascular system then you need to be heavily taking the following supplements:

    OMEGA 3

    CoQ 10

    Multi Vitamin/Mineral

    Vitamin C

    Vitamin D

    Magnesium

    Vitamin E

    and I take Turmeric for other non cancer properties.





    and cut out corn syrup, soda, salt, sugar, trans fat, MSG, aspartame, and fluoride.
