Cannabis Hyperemesis Syndrome

As cannabis use becomes more and more acceptable and legal the world over, research on cannabis becomes a legitimate endeavor. One area in serious need of understanding is Cannabis Hyperemesis Syndrome (CHS)

Unlike the common belief and experience by a myriad of users, cannabis doesn’t always stave off nausea and vomiting. A small subset of daily, high-rise consumers, years into use, find themselves having the opposite effect from cannabis and are overcome with severe nausea and vomiting that can lead to an ER visit. How can cannabis turn into a creator of nausea instead of a cure?

Sadly the scientific jurors are still pondering and seeking more insight. Different oddities are showing themselves; however, one is that THC, CBD, and CBG (all cannabinoids) don’t have the same effects nor affect the same areas of the body. For example cannabinoids can affect both the brain and the digestive system. Which one is effected more strongly could win out.

Another part of the puzzle is that cannabinoids can build up in the body’s fat and during hunger or stress be released. The more deposited over time the stronger this will be. Scary as this condition is, luckily there is a solution: stopping cannabis. Not all drugs are that forgiving.
