Cannabinoid hypermesis syndrome

Post by Rob Lister » Tue Sep 01, 2015 12:56 pm

I'm going to say BS unless there is more evidence.
Rise of the bizarre 'cannabis vomiting syndrome': Heavy users suffer from severe nausea and pain that can only be relieved by bathing in hot water several times a day

--Cannabinoid hypermesis syndrome was first recorded in Australia
--Symptoms include severe stomach pain, nausea and vomiting
--Sufferers often report having a hot bath up to 5 times a day to relieve pain
--Expert warns condition is responsible for a rise in 'unnecessary' hospital admissions for heavy cannabis users - and is 'increasing acutely'
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/artic ... s-day.html

Let's assume it is even remotely true ... Anything is possible. Including lacing a product for the purposes of branding. In the '80's, Lacing with pot with PCP was all the rage. So too lacing 'thai-sticks' with opium in the 90's. Essentially, a method by which a heavily vested supplier could move low-quality products. My point being: the pot or the lacing? These symptoms--stomach pain, nausea, vomiting--sound pretty familiar: Opioid withdrawal.

Now that it is out there, antagonists will exaggerate the potential negative effects to no end. The truth of the matter will be buried. This assumes there is truth in the first place.

There really are negative effects ... but I forgot what they were.

I had thai sticks in the late 80's. Not much but it was fun for a few days. It really is a[n almost] perfect combination. Just sayin'.

I'm not really a big fan of pot otherwise. For some, like me, the effect is mostly discontentment and paranoia. Adding the opium was the key. But I knew ... knew like the sky is blue ... that it was something to avoid.

That! is a Benedict-boiled egg. Hard to master. I'd be happy if my brain-egg were so boiled.

Boil the water with a cover. DON'T ADD SALT! Cover it. Tighter the cover the better (water gets hotter than 100c).

Open the cover. While stirring with a wooden spoon very, very quickly to create a vortex, add a teaspoon of vinegar and carefully drop in the egg. Keep stirring on the outer edges of the pot to keep the vortex 'running'. If done correctly, egg will solidify in the center not run all over the fucking place. Once the white has congealed, scoop out the egg with a large slotted spoon. Season to taste. Place over toast coated in melted butter (clarified if possible).

You can poach an egg in the shell.
Very consistent, and you don't lose any egg in the watah.

Same here, to some tune, and for several others I know who can't tolerate it. Yet many of its proponents refuse to believe that cannabis can have a down side for some people, despite increasing hospital admission rates as variants like Skunk become ever stronger. Much bullshit is spewed by both sides about drugs.
Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

Could it be some sort of allergic reaction?

Does it occur with heavy smokers or people who eat "edibles" or both?

I personally have had some bad reactions in the past. Not usually but a couple times. Once passed out. A couple times where I just had to lie down for a while because my body suddenly got weak and dizzy.
One of the very first times ever I really got high, I vomited. I had tried it a few times before that but it never had much of an effect on me until that one time, then WOW! After that it did have an effect.

In one case reported in the Journal of American Family Medicine a man ‘spent three days in a hot shower while awake’ to alleviate his symptoms.

His case was not the most extreme however, as researchers reported that one sufferer reported spending ‘300 out of 365 days’ in the bath.
If you stop smoking the shit do you get better? WTF?

The trouble with illegal drugs is that you never really know what you're taking, nor what dosage. Hardened dope heads inform me that different varieties can have very different effects and that makes sense, as there are several psychoactive chemicals in cannabis. A new variant stronger in one of the not so nice ones, maybe?
