Using Medical Marijuana with Blood Thinners

Marijuana Doctors | 12/15/2017

The use of cannabis for medicinal purposes is now legal in many states throughout the U.S. This is excellent news for patients struggling with several debilitating disorders that medical marijuana can effectively treat. However, this does raise more questions about the effect it might have on certain conditions, especially those that require patients to take other medications, as well.

One of these medications is blood thinners. Since the anticoagulant effect of blood thinners can be increased with cannabis, many medical professionals refuse to recommend cannabis for patients who are on this type of medication. What they don’t realize is that cannabis naturally acts as a blood thinner, so it could be a suitable replacement for anticoagulant meds.
