chest painAngina Pectoris is a condition typically characterized by a pain in the chest. It is thought to be caused by obstructions or spasms in the arteries leading to the heart. This can result in an inadequate supply of oxygen and glucose to heart related tissues. These obstructions are often the result of an underlying coronary disease.

Some patients who use medical marijuana may experience a reduction in the severity of angina pectoris symptoms due to the increased flow of blood to the area. However, marijuana might actually exacerbate the condition, so it would be best to seek medical advice before using it if you are suffering from angina pectoris.
