Cannabis hyperemesis syndrome: still under recognised after all these years.

Summary of "Cannabis hyperemesis syndrome: still under recognised after all these years."

Cannabis hyperemesis syndrome (CHS) is characterised by cyclical vomiting, relieved by hot water bathing, in the context of chronic cannabis consumption. Many cannabis users find this hard to accept given that cannabis is often promoted as a treatment for vomiting. Stopping cannabis is the best and only effective way to manage the condition. We report a case showing that CHS remains under recognised 15 years after it was first described.
