Smoking Pot Can Affect Your Blood Pressure

Many people and even a few medical professionals apparently believe that smoking pot — marijuana –is benign, in the sense that it doesn’t harm bodily health. New research results, however, seem to contradict that belief. More research is obviously needed.

A recently-published American research study of 1,213 pot smokers who were at least twenty years old found that long-time marijuana use raised the odds of death due to high blood pressure by a factor of 3.42, increasing by a factor of 1.04 with each additional year of successive pot use. The average study subject had been a pot user for 11.5 years, although the frequency of pot use during that period wasn’t broken down. Pot use was not found by this study to be correlated with death from stroke or from heart disease. 

The recent research study followed up what had become of people in the group of 1,213 who had been studied originally in 2005 and 2006, since that time. It referred to 2011 mortality data from the U.S. National Center for Health Statistics, adjusted for the effects of age, gender, ethnicity, and tobacco smoking.  

There is now a worldwide trend towards decriminalizing and legalizing pot for both medical and recreational use, with some restrictions. As of this writing, that has occurred in eight US states and the national capital district: Alaska, Washington, Oregon, California, Nevada, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, and Washington D.C. The legal situation is in rapid flux in other countries also, including Canada. Predictably, ‘social conservatives’ are fighting hard to try to roll back pot legalization. 

Pot does have some medical uses that have been studied and very well validated. It can relieve pain and nausea, lower pressure within eyeballs to help in treating glaucoma, and relieve spasticity. Many other medical uses are known, and are currently being studied as they are probably valid but more supporting data is needed. Medical uses of pot may be legal in some areas where recreational pot use is not legal, 

Pot is known to stimulate the sympathetic nervous system, thus causing increases in heart rate, in blood pressure, and in the body’s need for oxygen. So it obviously must affect the cardiovascular system as well.

So the problem, for medical folks, is to preserve pot as a legitimate medical treatment in their toolkit, while perhaps needing to restrain some other uses. 

In any case, whether or not you’re a pot smoker, if your blood-pressure level is sometimes higher than you think that it really should be, you could look into taking CLE Holistic Health Alistrol to benefit your blood pressure. Alistrol and Naavudi are vegetarian herbal health supplements, not drugs. Both are blended from various herbal extracts that have been used by traditional healers for millennia in Indian Ayurvedic, Chinese, Japanese, and Pacific Islander medical practice; Alistrol operates to alleviate high blood pressure, and Naavudi helps to mitigate excessive blood glucose (“blood sugar”). The extracts from four different herbs go into CLE Alistrol; CLE Naavudi is comprised of extracts from nine different herbs. Medical researchers are now clinically testing several of these ancient herbs, and some positive results have been reported. 
Both Alistrol and Naavudi are offered as vegetarian capsules, 500-milligram and 550-milligram respectively, produced from herbs that have been grown organically on CLE’s own farmland plots; and, that have been harvested and processed and packaged entirely by CLE employees, using CLE’s proprietary methods, in order to achieve superior levels of quality, purity, and uniformity. Neither Alistrol nor Naavudi is known to have any interaction with prescription medicines, so you can try one or both of them without otherwise changing your medicinal regimen. So, how about checking out Alistrol and/or Naavudi?
