A study conducted by the University of Colorado hints to the idea  that cannabis could possibly be used survive a heart attack. (Marijuana use and short-term outcomes in patients hospitalized for acute myocardial infarction) More that 1.2 million medical records of  acute myocardial infarctions (AMI) were collective, and researchers discovered  that 3,854 of those patients were cannabis consumers.

The stud found that using marijuana prior to AMI was strongly associated with a decreased number of in-hospital mortality post AMI.

The study is huge for debunking the assumption that cannabis users would actually have more of a risk than non cannabis users when it comes to a heart attack. The main things from the study are that cannabis consumers actually had a decreased risk of death, shock, or need to insert a balloon into a blocked artery.

As CDN news points out:

Unfortunately, as many studies exist that claim habitual marijuana use can be detrimental to heart health.  It is important that individuals contrast their own heart health against available information on the effects of cannabis, and CBD oil.

Nonetheless, a multitude of studies and empirical evidence concludes that cannabis can effectively treat other medical conditions. Positive benefits from THC and CBD use include assisting with cancer pain, nausea, and loss of appetite. Chronic pain from injury and lessening of epilepsy and multiple sclerosis symptoms.
