Sep 18 - Emergency rooms r seein an influx of marijuana users being admitted 4 CHS
 

 
Habitual marijuana users are being hit with waves 'uncontrollable vomiting' in states where the drug has been legalized, study finds



The condition, known as cannabis hyperemesis syndrome, has been particularly evident in the 18 states where marijuana is legalized, according to a new study

Teens and young adults are being hit particularly hard by the condition, with over a third of vomiting cases occurred in people 25 years of age and younger.

'They are writhing, holding their stomach, complaining of really bad abdominal pain and nausea,' said Dr. Sam Wang, a pediatric emergency medicine specialist and toxicologist who treats teens with the condition at Children's Hospital Colorado.

'They vomit and then just continue to vomit whatever they have in their stomach, which can go on for hours.'

'They often say they took a scalding hot shower before they came to the ER but it didn't help. That's when we know we may have a case of cannabis hyperemesis syndrome, or CHS,' Wang added.

Increase in uncontrollable vomiting linked to marijuana use​
Cannabis hyperemesis syndromewas (CHS) was first identified by a group of Australian researchers in 2004, when they studied 19 chronic marijuana users who had complained of repeated cases of retching and abdominal pain.

Over half of the study group said they felt relief from hot showers or baths.

'Patients often say, 'You know, it's always in the evening when I get this nausea, vomiting,' Wang said.

'So they tell me, 'I go take a hot shower, and it gets better, then it happens again the next night.'

'It's pretty universal for these patients to say they need a really, really hot shower, or a really hot bath, to improve their symptoms,' he said.

Researchers believe that since cannabis has access to the body's pain receptors, exposing the body to extreme heat may distract it and interrupt the pain cycle, according to CNN.

The volume of CHS cases has skyrocketed over the years, with more than 800,000 cases of reported vomiting in Colorado between 2013 and 2018 alone, making for a 29 percent increase since marijuana was legalized in the state back in 2012, according to Wang's analysis, which was published Friday in the medical journal JAMA Network Open.

'This is not a rare problem,' Wang said.

'When an adolescent comes in with cyclical abdominal pain and vomiting, my colleagues know to ask about cannabis use. It's a pretty common practice to see this and diagnose and treat it.'

Treatment for CHS typically consists of anti-nausea medication along with fluid IVs to help treat dehydration from the vomiting.

However, patients admitted for CHS also must undergo a series of tests to better identify the diagnosis, including CT scans, endoscopy, blood and urine tests and gastric emptying tests, among others.

Dr. Wang says some of the younger CHS patients can be re-admitted multiple times due to the condition, forcing them to undergo such tests, which are oftentimes expensive and unpleasant.

'For some of our kids, this is their fifth ER visit in the past two months, with symptoms that they can't control,' Wang said.

Medical professionals say patients who wait too long to be treated for the condition are potentially putting their lives at risk.

'Regardless of whether it's cannabis hyperemesis syndrome or another virus that makes you vomit a lot, if you let it go too long, you can have electrolyte disturbances, go into shock and have organ failure. CHS is no different,' Wang said.

As more states pass legislation to legalize recreational marijuana, the issue of CHS could become even more prevalent, warns Dr. Wang.

In the US, 17 states (and the District of Columbia) have legalized recreational marijuana for adults.

Meanwhile, three dozen states and several US territories have medical marijuana laws on the books, as well.

A recent Pew survey found that 60 percent of US adults believe marijuana should be legal for both medical and recreational use.

If this is real, I'd be willing to bet it's because these corporations have laced their products with all types of chemicals and filler.

99% of the weed I smoke is the weed I grow for myself. Can't trust dealers or these corporations. Mafuccas are doing a whole bunch of extra sh*t with the ways that they're growing weed nowadays.

It's alot of sci-fi weed being sold rn.

This with damn near everything else you consume if you can back in the states. I donít smoke itís too much of a risk where I live I am from Cali tho originally and knows how it goes down. America the corporation is quick to sell out there people for a quicker buck all the franken foods, sh*t sprayed on tobacco, poured into those vapes and alcoholic soda concoctions and I just a*sumed corporate weed dealing would be the same. Keep up.
