I just want to start the discussion on cannabis hyperemesis syndrome (CHS). I'm a chronic daily user of marijuana. I smoke 3-5 times in a day, usually once is the morning, then multiple times in the evening. This past year I've been solely smoking concentrate in the form of BHO. I make it myself, I have the proper equipment and I'm educated on how to make it properly. So before anyone can say I was smoking bad BHO, this wasn't the case. My product was clean and of very high quality. This leads me to CHS...due to the extremely high concentration of cannabinoids in BHO vs regular flowers. My body built up a toxicity to cannabinoids in system. Almost kind of like alcohol poisoning. This toxicity built up over time from chronic daily use of BHO. I was not smoking flower at this time. It started out slow. In the morning I would feel sick to my stomach, cramping, pain, almost like I had to take a bad shit. I would end up vomiting and the feeling would subside. This went on for two weeks, I didn't understand what was happening, I thought I was having bad bowel movements which was upsetting my stomach causing me to vomit. My family calls these the "sick shits". I kept smoking, not thinking anything of the cannabis I was smoking had anything to do with what was going on. Well one morning I woke up had the same feeling as before, but this time was much different, extreme stomach pain, bad cramping, uncontrollable vomiting, body aches and lots and lots of sweating. I couldnt hold fluids or food down I would throw them up instantly. This day I threw up about 20-25 times. I was starting to cramp up from dehydration and I was feeling horrible. I absolutely hate doctors, but I knew I was in trouble and I sent myself to the ER. Sure glad I did, they got the necessary fluid back to me through an IV, and started giving me nausea and vomiting medicine to help with my uncontrollable vomiting. My 5 day journey in the hospital started, test after test, cat scans, endoscopy, bloody work, anything they thought of to try and diagnose me. At first they saw inflammation of my colin, which later we found out was due to all the vomiting I was experiencing, so they at first thought I had colitis. They ruled that out because I wasn't passing blood or having diarrhea. All my test, blood work and body functions were coming back normal. So they thought I was experiencing cyclical vomiting syndrome, which is almost identical in symptoms as CHS. In the beginning, they always ask if you're a smoker in hospitals due to that causing a lot of health problems, I usually respond with not tobacco, but I do smoke marijuana, most time they don't care and move on because smoking marijuana isn't even close to smoking tobacco. Well it came down to them diagnosing me with CHS. They told me I had built up a toxicity in my body to cannabinoids and it was causing me to have these symptoms. At first I was skeptical because my beloved plant has never caused me harm in the 7 years I have been smoking it. And we all hear of the medicinal benefits it has. I didn't want to believe this was the cause. I started doing my own research and reading when I was sitting in the hospital. There is no question I had CHS, they were right. I had built up a toxicity to cannabinoids due to the extremely high concentration that is found in BHO. And my body was hating me for it. I was in the hospital for 5 days with uncontrollable vomiting, stomach pain and cramping, and bad body sweats. I couldn't hold fluids, food or medicine on my own everything had to be giving to me through IV. Finally it slowly started to subside and I was able to keep water down and hydrate myself. It took two weeks for me to start to feel "normal" again. I had to stop smoking to get my body back on track and so my symptoms wouldn't come back. I lost 25 pounds in one week from CHS, which made me feel really weak from lack of proper nutrition. I'm slowing starting to gain weight and strength back but it's gonna be a while until I'm back to my correct weight and my normal 100%. So I just want to put this out there for people to be aware of so they can protect themselves and not go through what I had to experience. Do your self a favor and google cannabis hyperemesis syndrome and get educated, and learn that moderation is key. You can overdose on weed. I did it. I want this to be a open discussion for everyone so we can all learn. mods I placed this in this section because I feel people who smoke concentrate need to read and hear my story. Anyway I want everyone to take care of themselves and get educated. Peace and love to all my brothers, and sisters. May your health stay strong.
