Canadian Hemp

How does Canadian Hemp work?

Canadian hemp contains chemicals that may slow the heartbeat, lower blood pressure, increase the strength of the heartbeat, and increase urine. It may work similarly to the prescription drug digoxin (Lanoxin), but is less effective and causes more side effects.

Are there safety concerns?

Canadian hemp is UNSAFE because of its effects on the heart and other side effects.

Canadian hemp is irritating to the throat, stomach, and intestines, and can cause nausea and vomiting. It can slow the rate of the heartbeat, which can cause the body to release substances that cause the blood pressure to increase.

Do not take Canadian hemp if:
  • You are pregnant or breast-feeding.
