Its not really a noted side effect, by that I mean its not a side effect that sources often describe, you won’t see it in books. Hypertension, or high blood pressure is an immediate effect after smoking weed because the thc and carbon monoxide in smoke( mostly carbon monoxide) makes oxygenation of tissues a harder job. As a result the heart pumps faster and harder to compensate and you get High blood pressure and tachycardia(fast heart beat). As a smoker of weed in the past I can’t say I have gotten bloody noses, but I have had Hypertension after smoking one time at 156/75 mmhg. It goes away after an hour or two. High Blood Pressure can cause bloody noses, most physicians know this. Usually if it gets really high over 170/80 mmhg bloody noses might occur. So tell your friend to cut back a bit, although it hasn’t really killed anyone it does cause some minor nuances.

    Does it matter? I assume this question is really for you. Stop smoking weed, it’s killing you off. Unless you don’t care (Or you’re friend for that matter)
    Read if you dare, but you or you’re friend will undoubtedly not want to smoke.

    Marijuana Side Effects

    Marijuana side effects come from smoking or consuming the drug and marijuana side effects influence the mind and body of the user. Marijuana side effects can be as seemingly innocent as an increased appetite to as life threatening as lung cancer. Increased likelihood for accidents is also one of the marijuana side effects. Studies show that 6 to 11 percent of fatal accidents are contributed to by marijuana side effects. Other external marijuana side effects include legal problems, work and financial problems and troubles at home.

    Marijuana is most often smoked but can be eaten or steeped in tea to drink. Most over-doses occur actually when the drug is eaten because it is easier to consume a large dose all at once. Marijuana side effects from an overdose include toxic psychosis including hallucinations, delusions and a loss of self-identification. When smoked, marijuana is rolled up into a cigarette called a joint or smoked in a pipe or water pipe called a bong. Marijuana has many street names like pot, hash, chronic and there are many paraphernalia available to smoke it.

    Over 11 million people smoked marijuana last month. Many may not have severe marijuana side effects from taking the drug but many people will. Marijuana side effects include physical problems like breathing difficulties and deteriorating physical abilities. Despite a popular belief, marijuana side effects speed up the heart, blood and breathing rate. The body is taxed more and this speeds up the aging process just like methamphetamines do. The marijuana side effects from this extra exertion on the body include a higher risk for lung cancer, heart attacks and strokes.

    Marijuana side effects also wreak havoc on the brain when the drug is used habitually. The natural chemical balance of the brain is disrupted affecting the pleasure centers and regulatory systems. The ability to learn, remember and adapt quickly to changes is impaired by marijuana use. Depression often occurs with marijuana usage, which feeds into the cycle of more drug use to treat the pain created by drug use. This cycle of addiction is very powerful and users soon find that they cannot stop using the drug even if they want to.

    Marijuana addiction is a progressive disease and marijuana side effects include withdrawal and obsessive thought with the drug when it is not made available. Addiction is identified as a compulsive, uncontrollable craving for the drug even with pending negative consequences. Often users will attempt to stop smoking marijuana for an important event such as a job interview or court hearing and find themselves using very close or just before the event. This act goes beyond a flexing of willpower. This describes being enveloped by a disease that has taken control and needs to be treated.
