Google “Does marijuana increase risk of stroke,” and you’ll likely become confused. Some research, released earlier this year, indicates heavy cannabis consumption doubles the risk of stroke for young people. Other studies have indicated that data used in this research is closer to correlation than causation.
A new study published in the journal Neurology Clinical Practice aims to add to the understanding. American Academy of Neurology researchers claim there is no link between stroke risk and weed use, based on recent findings.
“Previous studies that investigated cannabis use and risk of stroke have had conflicting results, some showing a decreased risk and others showing a greatly increased risk,” the study’s lead author, Dr. Carmela San Luis, said in a statement.
