I’ve heard stories of people having a pounding or racing heart rate from smoking marijuana. While it’s never happened to me, I’m interested since I recently turned 50 and there is a history of heart disease in my family. I will be traveling to California in two weeks and hope to enjoy opportunities that are not available in my home state of Indiana. — George
There are indeed some strains of marijuana that can have this “heart-racing” effect. Typically, they are the sativa-dominant strains such as Super Silver Haze, Jack Herer, Nigerian Silk or Blue Dream. If you’re worried about the effects and looking to avoid them, then do not purchase and consume sativa-dominant strains. Stick to indica-dominant hybrids.
