I get a fast heart rate when I smoke weed. Am I okay? I want someone who knows what they re talking about. No stoners that say Nah, you re fine. It s just paranoia. Keep smoking! It s NOT paranoia. I also know it s bad for me, so please keep that to yourself. Anyway - everytime I smoke I get a really fast heart rate. I know that can t be good. I don t want to quit though :/ Someone help? I ve been smoking for a while though. Don t you think if anything serious was going to happen, it would have by now?
Why does my heart beat way too fast when I smoke marijuana? Does this happen to everyone? Sometimes it freaks the crap out of me, like I m on the verge of having a heart attack or something. Please let me know what is going on and why.
