Cannabis can have a strong effect on blood pressure. It does relax blood vessels and can cause some postural hypotension. Care should be taken upon standing, especially in those who have an increased risk for falling. You may want to decrease the dose a bit, and insure that she is adequately hydrated and that her nutrition level is good, with plenty of solute in the blood to maintain a healthy blood volume.
