My stepson has experienced CVS for nearly 20 years. He uses MJ to relieve the symptoms, but has also experienced legal problems because of this. Since CBDs are legal in our state, I am looking for anyone with experience in using CBDs to alleviate or eliminate CVS symptoms. Dosage levels and quality of product are my largest concerns at this time. Any assistance or information would be welcome. Thank you.

Currently there is a lot of confusion over CVS and CHS-- Cannabinoid Hyperemesis Syndrome.    Has your step son had the required testing to diagnose CVS?  Has he taken a break from the medical marijuana to see if his symptoms improve?

I am not sure how the medical community is dealing with prescribed Cannabis. The symptoms of CHS closely match those of CVS.  If your step son has tried not using-- or is using street marijuana-- but keeps having symptoms, he is probably going to have to stop the use of marijuana. 

Those I know who are in legal states, mine included, are using CBD without (or with very low dose) THC daytime and a Cannabis product, often a vape, with some THC while sleeping.  I know of only a few CVS patients who have been helped with Cannabis.

There is a not very active section of the Message Board with some information on Cannabis. You can also search the archives.  A Google search will often bring up information stating that CVS and CHS are the same condition.  

We are trying to get the difference between the two corrected each time an incorrect report comes out.

We believed at first it was CHS, but he stopped using mj and began experiencing profound symptoms on daily basis. He has gone through whole gamut of clinical and physio for gastric distress. Drugs, drugs, drugs. Some leave him non-functional. I will continue my trek. Thank you for your timely reply. Cheers for now.

Try sending a message to SmokeEater, he has had CVS for many years and was responding to medical cannabis.  A couple of others you will see in the Cannabis section include DemonCleaner.  They might have some better advice.

I hope you find the answer.  My daughter had CVS from age 3 and once she aged out of pedi care the medical care was atrocious, especially in the ER.

Good luck.

My daughter also smoked and the lines were blurred as far as CBD vs. CHS. I am convinced that the smoking does NOT help the CVS. Typically smoking alleviates nausea but not in the case of my daughter. In addition to her meds for CVS (amatriptaline daily and klonopin as needed) she added hemp oil and we have seen great results. She did research his well and settled on “everyday advanced hemp oil” from charlottes web. It is great quality but a little expensive. The site is cwhemp.com. We got the 100ml. It has lasted her over a month so far. And no episodes. Highly recommend.
We encourage our daughter NOT to smoke. We are not anti marijuana but in her case with the episodes farther and farther apart we don’t want to make any mistakes with her health.
Hope this helps. Keep me posted if you so the hemp oil. Curious to see if it helps.

CBD's Is what most CVSers need to help with a attack, the higher the CBD's the Better  BE VERY CAREFULL, Remember under Federal law Cannabis is still illegal so any CBD's oil you buy on line or by mail will have LESS than 5% CBD in it and its from the hemp stalk now the flower, so guess for the lack of a better term, its crummy worthless CBD oil, if you live in a State where its legal get the highest CBD you can get BUT you still need a State Cannabis card, for many CVSers who have pain also That's the THC part and the best for that is the highest THC & CBD you can, I have been on it now for a year and a half and have gone from being sick 5 days a week for 12 to 19 or more hrs at a wack  down just just one day a week and even a few times I have gone 2 weeks without one, We have a MD at my dispensary where I get mine and he says if you build up a tolerance to it back  just go off it for a week and it will go away
