  2. +Mastr Sculpter I see you went to medical school, and I see you know how to
    interpret evidence and study design, lol!

  3. interesting topic, in my opinion its kind of a jump to blame it on the
    actual cannabinoids. having had a similar experience as what is described,
    and having treated the condition by focusing on ridding myself of body-wide
    candida worked for me.

    sugar/candida and its reaction with the plant cannabinoids is much more
    likely the culprit.. in my non professional opinion the plant ‘medicine’ is
    actually trying to purge the overload of candida/sugars from the body.

    It’s too bad no medical studies can be done on schedule I substances…

  4. I was diagnosed with Cannabinoid Hyperemesis Syndrome on June 12th 2013. I
    was telling the E.R doctor my symptoms and when I told him I would lay down
    in a hot shower to relieve my symptoms he cut me off and asked me, “Do you
    want to be high or do you want to be healthy? The reason you are getting
    sick is because you are a chronic marijuana smoker.” I had been in and out
    of the hospital roughly every 6 months for 3-4 years and this was the first
    doctor to diagnose me with this. When I say extreme vomiting I mean
    extreme! On one incident I had lost 25 pounds in 3 weeks (I was 6″ 160 lbs
    to start and went into the hospital 6″ 135.) I would lay down in the shower
    until the hot water ran out and would be in the fetal position throwing up
    until the hot water tank had enough water for another hot shower. I could
    not even hold down water and medical treatment was necessary. They would
    pump me with I.V fluids for a couple days until the symptoms subsided and I
    would be released. Sure enough I would be sick and admitted back into the
    hospital within 6 months or so. On June 12th 2013 I quit smoking weed and
    have not had one symptom since. This is absolutely a real condition and
    something easily overlooked. If you are suffering from these symptoms and
    are a chronic smoker I urge you kick the habit for your health. It isn’t
    easy but its worth it!

  6. I suspect the learning curve is going to change on this now that so many
    think it is safe.

  7. Dr. Mellick- “So you probably smoke 4-5 times a day?”.
    Patient- “I wouldn’t say probably..”
    Dr. Mellick-“So you DEFINITELY do”?
    Patient- “Yea”

  8. I was a regular smoker, I would smoke about a gram a day for three years
    then I developed cannabinoid hyperemesis and spent several weeks in
    hospitals, constantly vomiting and in extreme pain. I however, experienced
    many doctors who were ignorant to the subject and who would not give me
    opiates because they believed I was most likely drug seeking, I was treated
    like a drug addict by medical staff. It was extremely hard to dianose and I
    had to see one of the top GI doctors in the country to find out what was
    wrong with me. I quit smoking marijuana chronically this year and have been
    cyclic free. Also, I think it would be fair to mention that not only
    smoking marijuana can cause this but also the intake of thc pills. Anyone
    who smokes should not view this as propoganda but rather as a warning to
    you and your friends that you shouldn’t smoke everyday. I continue to view
    marijuana as a great medicinal drug, and I think many will benefit from it,
    but chronic smoking can bring something like this to a head and when you
    develop this it is very, very hard on you, your family and your wallet. I
    now take fifteen pills a day to regulate my stomach and I am afraid to do
    many of the things I once enjoyed and viewed as simple tasks, because my
    syndrome is always in the back of my mind. Keep weed in your life, smoke
    occasionally, but too much of a good thing can make you vomit for a week.
    Be safe.

  11. bullshit you have no way to prove this ridiculous cannbinoid theory
    considering cannabinoids themselves are nothing but good i know the real
    research and your not fooling me
    it sounds more like a smoke / liver problem or 100 other problems with
    those symptoms -_-

  14. Tough question. It could be both. Haldol actually works pretty well for
    both conditions.

  19. Interesting, I’ve never heard of this syndrome. Strange that marijuana is
    used in smaller doses to treat nausea with chemo patients, I have in fact
    seen it work quite well. I wonder what the mechanism of marijuana on the GI
    tract is…I’ve also seen Marinol NOT be effective at all where smoking it

  20. I actually don’t have any idea. I would imagine it would be two or three
    days for the toxin or metabolite causing the problem to leave the body.

  21. Read about this in “Ever Patient Tells a Story,” and this is the first time
    I’ve heard of someone acknowledging it haha seems like one of those
    phenomenon that some professionals acknowledge and some don’t, like
    “dysautonomia” or “Reactive Airway Dysfunction Syndrome.” Voodoo ;p

  23. This is really funny, cause they give pot out as a cure all in California.
    Many people misuse it. I wonder if people knew about this, would peoples
    habit change?
