How Safe Is Smoking Marijuana Post A Minor Concussion?

is it safe to smoke marijuana after a minor concussion? i recently had a minor concussion, i say minor because the doctor didnt find that he needed to run a scan to see if i had a brain bleed or not, I have smoked marijuana since the concussion but i had a really bad anxiety attack a few days ago which was weird because i rarely get them sober

Hello,

Marijuana is not good for the brain vessels, as it can lead to a possible stroke, especially after a head concussion. For this reason, I would not recommend taking marijuana. Anyway, if you really can not resist it, low doses may not be harmful.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Ilir Sharka, Cardiologist
