Abstract

Although multiple cases of cannabis-associated ischemic stroke have been reported, there are only 2 reported cases of hemorrhagic stroke with an associated cerebral vasoconstriction. To our knowledge, we present the first case of basal ganglia hemorrhage after a large-volume oral ingestion of cannabis without other identified risk factors. In our case, cerebral digital subtraction angiography within 24 hours of presentation did not reveal vasoconstriction leading to a possible alternative explanation for hemorrhagic stroke, including cannabis-induced transient arterial hypertension and autoregulation disruption.
