Study: Heart Attack Patients with History of Cannabis Use Less Likely to Die During Hospitalization

cannabiscuresnauseaThose with a history of cannabis use who suffer from a heart attack are less likely to die during hospitalization, according to a new study presented this month at the annual meeting of the American College of Cardiology (which took place April 3 in Chicago).

For the study, researchers took hospitalization results of 3,800 heart-attack patients who said that they’ve used cannabis in the past, and compared them to over a million similarly matched patients who didn’t have a history of cannabis use.

Researchers at the University of Colorado found that patients who had consumed cannabis had a significantly lower mortality rate during hospitalization, and were also at lower risk for shock and the use of an IABP (intra-aortic baloon pump).

Researchers say that they’re uncertain why exactly cannabis improves mortality rates in heart attack patients.
