This study tested longitudinal associations between cannabis use and cardio metabolic risk factors that underlie the development of cardiovascular diseases.

Most associations between cannabis use and cardio metabolic risk factors remained after adjusting for tobacco use, childhood SES, and childhood health.

After adjusting for adult BMI, these associations were no longer apparent, and mediation tests suggested that cannabis users’ relatively lower BMI might explain their lower levels of risk on other cardio metabolic risk factors.
