Uncontrollable vomiting due to marijuana use on rise, study finds

An unusual illness is on the rise in the United States, especially in states that have legalized marijuana. People who frequently use cannabis, including teenagers, are showing up in emergency rooms with uncontrollable vomiting.

Young adult cannabis consumers nearly twice as likely to suffer from a heart attack, research shows"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 at Children's Hospital Colorado, who treats adolescents with the condition."They vomit and then just continue to vomit whatever they have in their stomach, which can go on for hours," said Wang."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."A bizarre conditionRead MoreCannabis hyperemesis syndrome burst upon the medical scene in 2004, when a group of Australian researchers wrote about 19 chronic marijuana users who had repeated episodes of abdominal pain and retching. The researchers followed nine of the patients over time and found symptoms went away when cannabis use was stopped but returned when it was restarted. Oddly, over half of the 19 reported using extremely hot baths or showers to self-treat their symptoms. As more and more cases of CHS began to appear, hot bathing as a home treatment became a recurring theme. "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.' Cannabis use may be linked with suicidal thoughts, plans and attempts in young adults, study finds "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.Why hot?"That's not entirely clear," said Wang, who is also an associate professor of pediatrics at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora, Colorado.Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, the main psychoactive compound in weed, has access to the body's pain receptors, so one theory is that the distracting sensation of the extreme heat interrupts the pain cycle, thus easing symptoms.To compound the strangeness of the new disorder, THC and other cannabinoids in the marijuana plant have been used for pain relief -- paradoxically relieving nausea and vomiting in cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy. However, despite the popularity of marijuana as a pain killer, study results on its effectiveness have been mixed.Still, why would the same compound relieve and also cause pain? Among a myriad of possibilities: dosage levels. Wang points to the ever increasing potency of THC in today's marijuana products. "It's been well documented that the amount of THC that now comes in cannabis is increasing substantially," Wang said."In the '90s the average was like 4% or 5%. Now in Colorado, it's anywhere from 15% to 20%."Another mystery: Not all heavy users of weed are affected by CHS."It's not entirely clear who is predisposed to getting it," Wang said."Is it a certain frequency or duration of use? Is it a specific potency? Or is it a specific type of product? We don't have that data."'use strict';CNN.Videx=CNN.Videx || {};{};CNN.INJECTOR.executeFeature('video').then(function () {CNN.VideoPlayer.handleUnmutePlayer=function handleUnmutePlayer(containerId, dataObj) {'use strict';var playerInstance,playerPropertyObj,rememberTime,unmuteCTA,unmuteIdSelector='unmute_' + containerId,isPlayerMute;dataObj=dataObj || {};if (CNN.VideoPlayer.getLibraryName(containerId)==='fave') {playerInstance=FAVE.player.getInstance(containerId) || null;} else {playerInstance=containerId && window.cnnVideoManager.getPlayerByContainer(containerId).videoInstance.cvp || null;}isPlayerMute=(typeof dataObj.muted==='boolean') ? dataObj.muted : false;if (CNN.VideoPlayer.playerProperties && CNN.VideoPlayer.playerProperties[containerId]) {playerPropertyObj=CNN.VideoPlayer.playerProperties[containerId];}if (playerPropertyObj.mute && playerPropertyObj.contentPlayed) {if (isPlayerMute===false) {unmuteCTA=jQuery(document.getElementById(unmuteIdSelector));playerInstance.unmute();if (unmuteCTA.length > 0) {unmuteCTA.removeClass('video__unmute--active').addClass('video__unmute--inactive');'click');rememberTime=0;if (rememberTime 0) {$vidEndSlate.find('.l-container').html('');$vidEndSlate.removeClass('video__end-slate--inactive').addClass('video__end-slate--active');}};CNN.autoPlayVideoExist=(CNN.autoPlayVideoExist===true) ? true : false;var configObj={thumb: 'none',video: 'health/2014/03/10/orig-brain-on-weed-sanjay-jr-jt.cnn',width: '100%',height: '100%',section: 'international',profile: 'expansion',network: 'cnn',markupId: 'body-text_22',theoplayer: {allowNativeFullscreen: true},adsection: 'const-article-inpage',frameWidth: '100%',frameHeight: '100%',posterImageOverride: {"mini":{"width":256,"type":"jpg","uri":"//","height":144},"xsmall":{"width":300,"type":"jpg","uri":"//","height":169},"small":{"width":640,"type":"jpg","uri":"//","height":360},"medium":{"width":980,"type":"jpg","uri":"//","height":552},"large":{"width":980,"type":"jpg","uri":"//","height":552},"full16x9":{"width":980,"type":"jpg","uri":"//","height":552},"mini1x1":{"width":60,"type":"jpg","uri":"//","height":60}}},autoStartVideo=false,isVideoReplayClicked=false,callbackObj,containerEl,currentVideoCollection=[],currentVideoCollectionId='',isLivePlayer=false,mediaMetadataCallbacks,mobilePinnedView=null,moveToNextTimeout,mutePlayerEnabled=false,nextVideoId='',nextVideoUrl='',turnOnFlashMessaging=false,videoPinner,videoEndSlateImpl;if (CNN.autoPlayVideoExist===false) {autoStartVideo=false;autoStartVideo=typeof CNN.isLoggedInVideoCheck==='function' ?

It can happen here: Expert on tyranny warns of GOP extremism

As the GOP pushes officials who have backed overturning the 2020 presidential election and more election lies, most Republicans now doubt the election results. MSNBC’s Ari Melber is joined by Timothy Snyder, who is an expert on authoritarian politics, to discuss the threat the GOP poses to U.S. democracy.

Seems like CNN has become anti cannabis with negative tweets about the use and effects of cannabis on those who smoke and consume cannabis products. DOING BIG PHARMAS ANTI CANNABIS STRATEGY . There is ongoing gonecide in tigray Pot heads they deserve it so it’s the marijuana huh? Y’all are a joke… do a meaningful story… how about a story on the abandoned American hostages, how about the over $80 billion, how about the over crowding of the military hospital with COVID-19 cases, the lack of social distancing on Ft Bragg?

This one too? The pharma lobbyists out in full force eh? Why is CNN so anti marijuana? This didn’t happen until after they legalized it. Wow! This is crazy. Analyse alcohol. Marijuana now causes suicidal thoughts is ludicrous. The people creating these studies lack the knowledge to be doing so. These studies are not believable in the misinformation era

Just like when the big 'news' was people getting sick from black-market THC cartridges adulterated with vitamin e oil, they're going to eventually stop sensationalizing and report the actual cause. I'm betting on pesticides or other chemical additives. Cannabis actually helps my severe intestinal distress called Ulcerative Colitis. I dwindled down on stronger medication like Remicade, and ever since using cannabis, my intestines have been in remission ever since. I guess everyone has a different outcome from it.

Really?!? 🤣

Of course if its laced with other addictive drugs It's from the munchies not the pot..Science starts out by asking questions CNN keeps taking shots at weed. First a bunch of reposts about 'marijuana heart attacks', now throwing up to death. they're smoking the wrong stuff. And iI bet the cases are mainly white people.

What is up with the hard voice on weed, dudes? Three days+ you've put out anti-pot articles that are weak, barely researched and are written to incite fear. Do better CNN. Everyone should just fucking report this as false information we all know it's FUCKING BULLSHIT Seriously we know you're pissed that the US left the heroin fields so kindly go find real news and stop doing hit jobs for lobbies

Sounds like that was cause of a munchies not the weed I work in GI practice - we see it too. Why even write this story!! They clearly state we just don’t have enough data yet to figure out what maybe causing these symptoms…. NOT ENOUGH DATA….. Find something concrete or positive to write about!!

The problem with marihuana is the lack of motivation that produces. It's a drug. These kids nowadays… Maybe this “legalized” commercialized marijuana isn’t pure. Once something becomes readily available, it gets tampered with a lot, after all it’s all about making money and not providing quality (for the most part) in America right?

An unusual illness is on the rise in the US, especially in states that have legalized junk food. Habitual consumers of junk food including teenagers are showing up in emergency rooms complaining of obesity 🙄 Hey did you hear about that radio contest where someone died from drinking too much water? Dangerous stuff. The interesting question is why is CNN so interested in writing amplified flimsy sensationized anti- cannabis pieces. Who is getting paid internet sleuths?

What type of legal dope do u have down there I wonder if it’s anything like the uncontrollable vomiting we see from alcohol consumption? cannabis Lies !!!!! Kids have been smoking pot since the 60’s. This is just ridiculous. Please stop these asinine posts. Heavenly, Father, what is the world you so preciously gave us turning to? Our youth are being led astray by their desires that doesn't please you...Lord help us, help them.

Having a Cousin or Grandparent With Colon Cancer Raises Your RiskIf you have a second- or third-degree relative who had colon cancer at an early age, your odds of having the disease substantially increase, a new study finds.

In the good old days when we grew our own pot this was not an issue.. as usual when anything natural gets commercialized they screw it up.. It could be delta 8 Cannabis industry is like any other, it wants your money. Thats why comment sections, on this issue is always pro cannabis. I wont be suprised about paid posters.

This is just the GOP trying to throw shade on Biden's bid to legalize marijuana federally The media is public enemy 1 And they wonder why we tune out their bullshit 🙄 Thank god. Nasty smokers Thanks so much for talking about cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome! Anyone who wants to learn more can visit the link in my bio

Could it be synthetic marijuana? Is there any health issue that affects people for not smoking weed? Or what's the bet with weed?

Ya well. 🙄 Watch walking at the longest riverside in Bangladesh, jokingly i call it the beach of poor 😊😊 This article is full of spotty research-utter hearsay really making a push to hurt the cannabis industry lately… really sad to see We've seen this in the coroner's office where I work. It's EXTREMELY rare. The 2 cases I've seen in the 6 years I've worked there, the people died of dehydration from the frequent vomiting.

Brought on by the vaccine Monsanto reefer. Duhh… So, on the shit, even the digestive system is like Meh, maybe later, along with the motivation, and positive attitude. I wonder what else in the body goes Meh on the shit. This is hilarious.

It’s not the marijuana. It’s all the food they stuffed in their face because they thought they were hungry. PSA- drink lots of water and you won’t eat and won’t have “intestinal” issues. 🙄 geez. For some strange reason when I used to get shit face drunk and puke 🤮 all over the place. I can’t remember CNN doing an article on alcohol puking 🤮. This is big pharma at work.

CNN with the fake news again lol. CNN and Fox news must have the same lobbyists lol smh This is complete propaganda how about you focus on the fact the more people show up in distress due to prescription drugs! But yall don't wanna piss off big pharma and the cash cow All seriousness set aside, their joint to munchies ratio is out of wack.

Wait until you hear about alcohol Fake news

Making Small Food Swaps Can Add Nearly an Hour of Healthy Life Per Day, a New Study ShowsNew study shows foods that can lengthen (or shorten) your life and improve planetary health, too. Okay while we can all agree healthy eating is important, I thinks safe to say it’s absurd to attempt to assign lifespan time increments to individual items

This article makes me sad that Trump had it right. Well at least on fake news and CNN, they just came off my watch list permanently. Actually weed helps with vomiting.. teens are smoking some other stuff. Don't be so quick to Blaime weed Turn them away!!! It's their choice and freedom to put shit in their body's. They shouldn't expect health care that is paid for by people who don't abuse themselves with stupid drugs.🤷🏾‍♀️

BULLSHIT ! I just want to say I actually was one of the people this happened to. I couldn't stop puking and literally had to go to the hospital to get an IV of fluids due to severe hydration. Maybe it was the weed idk... But it def happened to me. Just wanted to share. Lies. Why? I’m pretty disappointed in you CNN. don’t report on lies, otherwise you’re gonna start sounding like Trump

Need to bring back mids 😂😂😂😂😂😂 so the government is poisoning the weed now. The loosened the penalties on across the country but the states aren't legalizing it so they poisoning it smh. Glad I dmt smoke nomore glad I can grow my own. Google it people its easier than making cornbread Well this is nonsense

What kind of B.S. is this? Gen-X never got sick from smoking weed.

Did alcohol write this? Stop it CNN. I have never known one person who threw up from weed. They looked at 19 people, that's proves nothing lol CNN has been about as reactionary as Breitbart when it comes to Marijuana. Just last week they posted an extremely dubious study that sampled 38 people and claimed heart disease is more prevalent in pot smokers

TAKE SMALLER HITS OUT THE BONG! Um wut I have Crohns and RA and use a microdose of cannabis to help with the inflammation. It has always helped my nausea and stomach pain. Sometimes it’s the only thing that helps me be able to eat. I’ll keep watching my reactions but after 2 yrs my experience has been the opposite.

yea this never happen to me in 20 years Who comes up with this nonsense i been smoking for 20 years....and never threw up from weed. this is just a scare tactic Got a bunch of amateur users, and a bunch of potent ass edibles, what you think is gonna happen

Who is running this shit show of a media company? 😂😂😂🤡🤡🤡 Ha nope So, just because a minority doesn’t get side effects from smoking (they will die sooner anyways so…) that means this crap is safe? Haha are you all serious?. You addicts really need to grab a book instead of that shit. When grown it’s laced most likely with something bad

Just make edibles, smoking is for the old days Oh please! Weed hasn’t ruined peoplelike major pharmaceutical companies have, cigarettes and liquor. That’s bullshit … da fack are they smoking cause it ain’t weed a college friend experienced this. by the time we got him to medical care, he was underhydrated.

Absolutely. See it in the hospital all the time.

🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣really, WTF?!! I have never heard of this. sounds like its better to smoke the black market weed. Lol stop this bullshit. Can you every really control the urge to barf? Fakeeeeeee Never in the 20 years of smoking weed I have ever experienced this. What time of weed are they smoking

My son had this condition for 20+years. He experienced intense pains, vomiting, took baths, hospitalized, tested, IVs, he didn’t smoke cigarettes, non drinker, complete active sports outdoors. snowboarded, rode bikes. His sister saw this study in Colorado. He stopped MJ is fine Perspective: Teens who get their hands on alcohol and over indulge also have digestive ailments, vomiting and possible death. This is NOT a legal weed issue but a Teen & irresponsible adult issue. Teens also have issues with consuming large amounts of energy drinks. 🙄

MarytierraB hmm tf?! Mentirosos
