Study: E-Cigarettes And Marijuana No Good For Heart Health

Vapes, marijuana joints, cigarettes open door to abnormal heart rhythms

  • A recent study conducted by the University of California San Francisco reported that e-cigarettes and marijuana have similarly negative effects on the heart as traditional tobacco cigarettes.
  • While some perceive nicotine vapes and cannabis products as being “safer” alternatives to traditional cigarettes, the new findings shed light on the health risks these substances carry.
  • “We found that cigarettes, e-cigarettes, and marijuana greatly interfere with the electrical activity, structure, and neural regulation of the heart,” according to lead author Dr. Huiliang Qiu.
