Cannabis makes my heart race.
    #11375589 - 11/03/09 11:36 AM (8 years, 1 month ago)

Does anyone know if this is unhealthy? Lately when i smoke my heart seems to be just pounding in my chest. Sometimes i feel like I'm just waiting to have a heart attack. I laid awake in bed last night thinking my heart was going to explode.

I'm not sure if i just keep smoking to much in one sitting, or if i have been smoking to much in general. I don't get anxious or freaked out, my heart just goes into super hyper mode and it concerns me a little. It makes it hard to fall asleep with my heart going nuts and my blood pumping hard. Sometimes it feels like Adrenalin.

It isn't pumping any harder I assure you. I thought the same thing. My heart felt like it was going to leap out of my chest, and it was going a thousand miles per hour.

But I checked my heart rate and everything was normal. I do this every time I feel like this. You are just feeling more things because you are high. The reason it feels like it is going faster is because you are actually feeling the blood move through your veins.

You should check your heart rate while you are sober to get a good base line and then again when you are high. You should notice little if any difference:grin::thumbup:

I noticed this too. I have a strong feeling that you just caught the rhythm of your heartbeat and it amplified in your sensation. I have recently been noticing that if I focus on a heartbeat, it instantly feels noticeable.

You just became in tune with it

It's probably just the effect of the drug, BUT smoking anything *can* put stress on the heart.  I would reccomend getting getting your bloodwork done to make sure that your cholesterol and triglicerides are normal.  This way you'll be sure your heart doesn't have too much stacked against it.

What does your weed look like lately?

When I smoke indicas with a low tolerance, I get a racing heart beat (or that feeling .. like the others mentioned).

Is your weed dense, big nugs, pungent odor?

I don't remember the last time I felt my heart race with a good sativa.

I had to do the heartrate check a year or two ago.  I kept thinking I was having irregular heartbeats -- :rofl:

Does it kind of feel like it kind of kicks into this rapid rate out of nowhwere? Like sometimes when you bend over it just starts and it doesnt feel like a normal increased heartrate? Its kind of a chest thumping discomfort.

I used to get that on weed and sometimes randomly... it this is the same its most definitely,

I've got a fairly major heart murmur and during my stoner days I'd get this sometimes and worry about it. Towards the tail end (why I stopped) was I would get panic attacks that would actually elevate my heart rate.

When you feel like it's racing, just realize you're more aware. If your "heart hurts" realize that your heart doesn't have any nerve endings that would transmit to any pain receptors. You only feel it in surrounding areas. If your left arm starts to hurt, then yeah, worry.

Take your middle finger and pinky finger and find a pulse. I like my neck better than my wrist because it's closer to the heart and stronger. Count how many beats you get in 15 seconds and multiply by 4. This will give you a general idea.

Do it sober and do it when stoned. Chances are it's going to be the same, unless you're freaking out, maaaan...
