Resistance is not a force. Rather it is one of the factors that impede or slow blood pressure. Please refer to the source
By the way, resistance as a force can also be defined in Physics.
Please refer to this link

Hey jeinfunk, were you correct in confirming this answer. I checked the source and I found out that resistance is not a force rather it is one of the factors that empede or slow blood flow.
Besides, there are a lot of definitions of resistance. You can check sources in Physics. Im sure you can find one.
