Cannabinoid Hyperemesis or "Marijuana Morning Sickness"
James H. Allen M.B.B.ch.B.A.O.
Cannabinoid Hyperemesis is a previously undiagnosed disorder which occurs in susceptible individuals and is characterised by ongoing cannabis abuse over many years, cyclical episodes of vomiting and compulsive bathing behaviour. The hyperemesis is delayed for several years prior to the onset of illness, and for several weeks or months with a return to regular cannabis use following a period of abstinence. Cessation of cannabis is curative.
