A 20-year-old male asked:

I have hypoplastic left heart syndrome and want to try marijuana (when i'm 21). i know i can't smoke, but i am wondering if gummies with a very low thc dosage would be ok? i would only be taking half of one gummy?

Goals?: Trying Marijuana may make sense in the right context, if trying to alleviate some symptoms or counter the effects of other meds. With no specific goals it should be avoided. Your best reference remains your cardiologist, who can review your current conditions, active treatment and further clarify in the proper context.
