Systolic time intervals (STI) were measured in ten healthy male volunteers before and after intravenous (i.v.) administration of 25 mug/kg delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (delta-9-THC). Mean +/- SEM heart rate increased 32 +/- 7 beats/min, while systolic and diastolic blood pressures were unchanged after delta-9-THC. Total electromechanical systole lengthened(More)
