There is a new condition that is affecting marijuana users at a growing rate, and it’s called cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome (CHS). We had never heard of marijuana causing nausea or vomiting and were only familiar with its various health benefits. CHS causes abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting, and the vomiting can result in dehydration. This dehydration can lead to a type of kidney failure that experts refer to as cannabinoid hyperemesis acute renal failure, and in severe cases, it can even result in death. The reason why I know so much about this is that it happened to my son.
