Cerebrovascular disease is one of the overlooked complications of cannabis use. In young patients presenting with symptoms of ischemic stroke, the recent use of cannabinoids should be systematically investigated. Yet, cannabis use is widespread and some countries have taken further steps to legalize it. Here we present the case of a 29-year-old patient who had two several ischemic strokes within two months, each time after an important cannabis ingestion. This case illustrates the role cannabis can play in ischemic strokes occurring in young patients even though the pathophysiology of such an implication is not totally elucidated.
