I am looking for more evidence to convince the people around me that Cannabis isn't the cause to my wife's cyclic vomiting and in turn put my own self at ease.

Has anyone who has smoked Cannabis have the cyclic episodes, quit and remain episode free?

If that answer is yes, since being episode free are you still being treated for something else?

Or better would be, who has the Cyclic episodes, yet never touched Cannabis or never became a constant user?

Hello, I contracted CVS spontaneously last summer. I have never been a cannabis user and only experimented a couple times over 20 years ago. My doctor never brought that up as a possibility; perhaps because he knew I am in the field of law enforcement and have regular urine checks. I am a firm believer cannabis was not a factor in me contracting CVS.

This very question has been asked before and there were some good answers... use the search box in the upper right of this page and search cannaboid hyperemesis.

This is the result of a simple Google search using CVS and marijuana in the engine. The Australian study has no basis because it does not study the many of us who suffer without ever using marijuana. 

The biggest gap in their research is ignoring the children who have never been exposed to marijuana.

Matt, I don't think there is a gap in this ongoing research. It is not about ignoring children and people that have not being smoking marijuana. It is specifically about teen, young adults, and adults that smoke marijuana. And it is real!

What is it that you think is real?

Do you think cannaboid hyperemesis is a separate ailment from cyclic vomiting syndrome? 

Children who have never been exposed to marijuana are suffering from CVS all over the world. How does cannaboid hyperemesis relate if it's a different affliction?

I know cannabis hyperemesis is real. And yes I do think it is a separate ailment from CVS.  It only relates because the symtoms of CHS mimic the symptoms of CVS. The difference is the people with CHS got it from smoking pot.

There is absolutely NO proof of causation between supposed "CHS" and CVS via cannabis. The "research" done is appalling and only points to a correlation between cannabis users and what I am convinced is CVS. It's false in much the same way the medical field has tried to demonize cannabis by claiming it causes schizophrenia, which also turned out to be a baseless correlation. Please do your research. Making assertions like this is nothing but harmful to everyone who suffers CVS.

Wolf, I have done my research, believe me, I've seen it first hand and have talked to many who have cannabis hyperemesis. I don't make assertions and I am not speaking for anyone that might smoke pot. But what I do know is that if you have cannabis hyperemesis syndrome and quit smoking pot symptoms go away. It can take a while though, weeks to months.

On the subject of marijuana and CVS or CVS type of symptoms. the CVSA  office sent this message:   The study by Thangam Venkatesan and Dr. Store isin the process of being published which hopefully will shed some light on theissue and we will get it posted as soon as it’s done.    I believe it will beat least 6 months yet.

I started my cvs at the age of 30 while also being a cannabis user.  When I heard about chs and the symptoms mimicing those of cvs I quit smoking cannabis.  I didn't smoke for 1 year exactly.  My cvs symptoms never left me during that years time.  My episodes are exactly 3 weeks apart lasting 3-5 days.  This has been my cycle now for 14 years.  When I started back on cannabis, there was no increase or decrease in my symptons but there was relief from some of the daily nausea and it did help with my appetite.

I do not think the study as been published.  I will post the results here and the CVSA web page should also post the study.

I used Marijuana heavy prior to my diagnosis. I quit for three years and it still continued. I just started using again for my attacks and it has helped quite a bit. I don't need to use much and it relaxes me during vomiting and eventually helps me to snap out of it.
