I guess I’m kind of new to this cannabis experience. All I want to know is if it is normal for my heartbeat to go fast. Do I have to find a different strain? I don’t feel paranoid at all, so I don’t think that is the problem.

    Hi There,

    Yes I believe that is very normal when using Cannabis. According to studies:
    “Within a few minutes after inhaling marijuana smoke, a person’s heart rate speeds up, the breathing passages relax and become enlarged, and blood vessels in the eyes expand, making the eyes look bloodshot (red). The heart rate—normally 70 to 80 beats per minute—may increase by 20 to 50 beats per minute or may even double in some cases. Taking other drugs with marijuana can amplify this effect.”

    One of the things to consider could be type of strain although I’m not positive if that has a major effect. The two types of strains are Indica and Sativa. An Indica is a much more calm high and gives you the body high while a Sativa strain will be a very head rush type of a high that keeps you alert and awake.

    Are you using a Sativa or an Indica strain at the moment?
