The Effects Of Smoked Marijuana On Metabolism And Respiratory Control
Notes for this study:
|Number of Subjects
In a randomized, placebo-controlled trial, 8 healthy participants who had previously smoked cannabis smoked a 500 mg cannabis cigarette with 2.2. THC or placebo on two separate occasions.
Heart rate increased significantly after 16 minutes and up to 60 minutes, though not at 120. Resting ventilation, metabolic rate, and hypercapnic ventilatory response increased as well.
