  • Not sure. I don't smoke pot, but I have friends that do. From what they've told me it calms you down and that it relaxes you. So it might lower your blood pressure.

  • It does usually lower blood pressure, but I'm not going to recommend it. Unless your doctor approves of it, if you'd been having any kind of illnesses, I wouldn't recommend smoking anything.
