The results of a new study are making headlines with claims that marijuana users are connected to a three-hold higher risk of dying from hypertension (high blood pressure) than someone who doesn’t use marijuana.
There is one small catch to the findings of this new marijuana study. Namely, there are some limitations with the study’s findings. One of the more prominent being the fact that it defines a marijuana user as someone who has ever tried cannabis – even just one time. Most would agree there’s a big difference between someone who has tried marijuana once, someone who consumes it on special occasions, and someone who consumes it daily. Even with the limitations, however, the research conducted during the study did a nice job of focusing on how consuming cannabis can affect a person’s heart.
