High blood pressure or hypertension is a condition that causes the heart to work harder in order to pump blood through the system. There are many causes for the condition, but obesity and age often play significant roles. The condition may also be caused by a congenital heart defect, heart disease, or some other type of condition. Patients with hypertension experience symptoms such as light headedness, difficulty breathing, and pain in the chest. They may also feel excessively tired or breathless after minimal exertion.
In some patients, marijuana may help reduce blood pressure by a considerable degree. It is advisable to consult with a doctor first of course, but marijuana might just be an effective form of stress relief.
