A new study recently published in the Journal of Cannabis Research examines the potential “acute adverse reactions” associated with cannabis use.

The study examined self-reported adverse reactions from 999 cannabis users and revealed that the most prevalent reactions (more than 50% or respondents) were coughing, anxiety, and paranoia. The coughing reactions were also reported to be associated with lung discomfort and body humming.

Overall this study reveals insights for healthcare providers who care for cannabis users.
