It’s called cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome and some marijuana users are experiencing it across the U.S.
The syndrome affects heavy marijuana users and causes abdominal pain as well as severe nausea and vomiting.
According to a recent study, one thing has been connected to feeling relief from the syndrome and that’s a hot shower.
Researchers interviewed 2,127 adult emergency room patients under the age of 50 at Bellevue, a public hospital in New York City. The researchers found that hot showers was a way to relieve the symptoms.
Out of the 2,127 emergency room patients, 155 patients say that they smoke marijuana at least 20 days a month and out of these patients, 51 said that they experience nausea and vomiting over the past six months which was relieved by taking hot showers.
