Can medical marijuana help with SVT?

Hello, I am 19 and I weight 120 pounds. I was diagnosed with SVT. I was also told that I could possibly have a rare disease due to the abnormal sharp knife pains I get in my chest. I was curious if medical marijuana has any good and bad effects on my condition. I also have severe anxiety and insomnia.

HI...
SVT called as supraventricular tachycardia can be worsened with marijuana. Marijuana can cause sympathetic stimulation and increases your heart rate which can worsen your SVT or initiate an arrythmia. So I would advise you kindly not to use marijuana.
Thank you for contacting HCM.
