Can Cannabis be Beneficial in Preventing Heart Disease?


  • Heart disease describes a range of conditions that affect your heart.

  • Diseases under the heart disease umbrella include blood vessel diseases, such as coronary artery disease; heart rhythm problems (arrhythmias); and heart defects you're born with (congenital heart defects), among others.

  • The term "heart disease" is often used interchangeably with the term "cardiovascular disease."

  • Cardiovascular disease generally refers to conditions that involve narrowed or blocked blood vessels that can lead to a heart attack, chest pain (angina) or stroke.

  • Other heart conditions, such as those that affect your heart's muscle, valves or rhythm, also are considered forms of heart disease.

  • Many forms of heart disease can be prevented or treated with healthy lifestyle choices.
