Cannabis and Health Evidence Review Project

Research Fields: 

We have four active evidence base review projects examining the health effects of marijuana including the effects of marijuana use on cardiovascular risk factors and outcomes, the hemodynamic effects of marijuana use, the pulmonary effects of marijuana use, and the association of marijuana use with cancer. Thus far we have determined that cannabis use is associated with tachycardia and that suggests smoking marijuana is associated with respiratory symptoms including cough and sputum production. Regular updates to the evidence base surrounding cannabis use is necessary to ensure accurate information is communicated to the public.
