Would you smoke pot with a pacemaker?

Would you smoke pot now that you have a pacemaker?

  1. Thank you for your post. I look forward to hearing what community members have to say about your inquiry. In the meantime, we do have one post about smoking pot with heart failure. I will attach it here ( if you would like to check it out. Also, this also may be a great question for your doctor, as this person knows you best and should be able to answer your question. What do you think? John. community moderator

    1. ****** Obviously just my experience. I’m not any type of medical professional. For info only ******

      I have used pot frequently for the past couple of years after getting symptoms and diagnosis. It helps with the pain, anxiety, and depression. First most important thing I would say about weed is do not smoke it. I can’t imagine smoking anything would be good. I use edibles. Sometimes lately it seems to add to flutters and abnormal rhythms so it’s been a while since I’ve taken any. My doctors have stated they don’t have information about it but to definitely skip or stop taking it if I experience any adverse effects.

      1. Thank you for sharing your personal experience with smoking pot and your tips. I am sure that that others (including ?) will appreciate your tips. I would also add that it is also a good idea to talk to your doctor about trying any new treatment. I am just curious, Owen, is this something that a doctor directed you towards? Or did you do this on your own? John. community moderator.

    2. Hello friends I willl also say that I can’t imagine smoking anything would be good because most of the drugs available as smoking can be psychoactive. It harms on long terms but feels good in short term basis
