If you’re wondering “Does cannabis lower blood pressure?” the simplest answer is: yes. However, as we’ve already discussed above, the effects aren’t immediate.
If you do develop high blood pressure, you may find that you’re asked to take diuretics, ace inhibitors, calcium channel blockers, or a combination of the three. The type you’ll need to take will vary according to your age and race, as variations between the two may mean you don’t respond well to certain treatments.
Do cannabis and blood pressure mix?
Cannabis and blood pressure can have a positive relationship, but that might not be your first experience when you use it. According to one study , using cannabis initially results in a small but noticeable rise in heart rate and blood pressure. This rise depends on how much you’re using. The more you use, the higher that rise will be.
With all this in mind, you’ll now want to know whether to use Indica or Sativa for high blood pressure. As with many elements of medical cannabis, this is an area that’s largely under-studied. However, there are some studies we can turn to that offer useful advice.
Because there is more research confirming the benefits of Indica versus Sativa for high blood pressure, it does appear that it’s the better choice here. Indica often has a higher CBD value than Sativa, and this appears to have the greatest therapeutic benefit in treating conditions such as high blood pressure.
