Very high (175bpm) heart rate when high? by Finnegan Fluffmire - Sun, 26 Mar 2017 21:34:11 EST ID:+Pisj8Vk No.4882322 Ignore Report Quick Reply

Last night i dabbed and started playing games on my computer. Eventually everything seemed really slow. Checked my pulse via my s7's sensor and came up with 175. After laying down for a little and fpcusin on my breathing i managed to get down to 125. Has anyone else had this happen? I was using some dabs that ended up being kinda shitty (ended up repurging it myself). Would an excessive amount of butane present in the material cause that?

it's called tachycardia and it's one of the side effects of weed

>The acute cardiovascular effects of marijuana smoking in humans have been carefully examined, but it should be underlined that only healthy young males have been involved in most of the experimental protocols. These effects include a marked increase in heart rate, lesser increases in supine blood pressure and frequent occurrence of postural hypotension.[7] On the one hand, these effects seem to be dose dependent, but on the other hand, the frequent use over a relatively short period of time results in tolerance.[7]

It's even more so a side effect of BHO. I've never had tachy from bud, it's always from dabs. Even if I'm not really high from a dab, I still get an elevated heart beat.

Drink some water, keep temperature appropriate, and chill out.

this happens when I get really super high

the solution is to get less high

the problem is that it seems like I always forget about it completely when I'm sober, like it's never even on my radar when I'm thinking "man I am going to hit this bowl and get super fucked up" but after it happens I'm like "why do I always forget about this"

I had that happen once. I was really hungover and ate a powerful weed brownie before going to the Johnson Space Center in Houston TX. I checked my pulse at a little astronaut health-education station and it was also in the 170s. I think weed just does that to the heart, and I believe furthermore that it amplifies any other causes like stress or hangovers.

As someone else who tends to get very worked up very quickly, I can tell you that the way to avoid that is to care less about it.
There has never been a single documented death, during literally two thousand years and change of cannabis smoking, from smoking weed. The tachycardia is a documented side effect that likewise has never killed anybody directly - I do remember reading about cases in which people with ridiculously high blood pressure and compound cardiopulmonary diseases died from it, but people who're that sick know it.
The problem has more to do with that you actually own a blood pressure sensor that you keep in your room. That means that you're always to some extent worried about issues with your blood pressure, which is both a sign of and raises stress. If you think there'll always be a reason you might need to measure your blood pressure with a medical sensor, your problem isn't with the weed, and go figure your heart rate is going to skyrocket.

THC in higher quantities will actually slow your heart rate so just smoke more.

if you had a heart attack while high they wouldn't link it to weed they'd just say you had a heart attack

Depends. Some coroners have ruled weed as part of the cause of death before. But this is in people who also have something else in them that is known to be deadly in the right doses. Cocaine for one. Fucking drug warrior medical examiners have been known to say marijuana as a contributing factor, but that is them being fucking idiots. Fuck those fucking fucks from Funcikington-by-the-fucking-sea-of-fucks.

How much higher I'm, more my heart beats heavy. Do like >>4882400 said, just smoke less.

175 is high as hell, definitely tread carefully if your heart rate goes that high. Avoid caffeine, stims, etc while doing dabs if your heartrate gets that bad from the dab alone. I get 90-120 any time I get high even from just a little bud, I'm at 70 when sober and idle. All I can say is take a little xanax before hand or keep some handy just in case.

Maybe it's just me or the alcohol that I drink but in my experience smoking big joints can be quite dehydrating.
Drink water to lower the viscosity of your blood and to produce more of it.

One reason I kind of like having a tolerance is that even though I need to smoke more to get high, I stop getting a fast heart-rate from getting high. The tachycardia thing only seems to happen when I get really high (especially from dabs or from high-strength e-liquid) while not having any tolerance.

It helps to avoid caffeine/nicotine/alcohol before-hand. Sometimes I take a phenibut to keep me from getting to anxious, which helps.

I've never dabbed, but I generally notice that my heart rate does go up after I smoke, usually by ~20-30bpm. I get oddly fascinated with medical stuff when I am stoned, and I have an electronic bp cuff at home that tells me my pulse, so when I get stoned I like to play with it and compare results before/after smoking. Generally speaking, my heart rate seems to be raised for about 30-50 minutes after finishing smoking, and my blood pressure drops a bit too (not dangerously low... High bp runs in the family so when I am stoned it is actually just a tad lower than the accepted 120/80 norm.). Then after that my heart rate goes back to normal but my bp stays lower for a few hours usually. I think generally speaking smoking anything will make your heart rate go up. If it goes that high (175 is crazy) then I would recommend doing the same relaxation techniques you used, but also try not to do a whole lot of fast movements before and after smoking, and try to be seated when you smoke. Set things up so you only really have to get up to use the bathroom. If you can just smoke a bowl on your couch and melt into it, that would be ideal.
