Cannabis: The cannabis may not have any effect on your heart, but if you just had heart surgery, I have to assume you are on some medications and the cannabis may/will effect the absorption/effectiveness of your medications which are supposed to help your heart. I would not recommend it.

Answer: You just underwent a significant cardiac surgery, and now at almost 2 months, you wish to use marijuana? Have you discussed this with your cardiologist or even personal doctor? My advice is to avoid any extraneous substances until your doctor gives blessing and provides a "green light". You absolutely should avoid until permission given.
