Question of the Day

What actions lead to a remission of cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome?

The nausea and vomiting typically resolve within a few weeks of cannabis abstinence. Interestingly, the symptoms often resolve before all of the cannabis metabolites have been cleared from the patient's body. Because THC and other cannabis constituents accumulate in body fat, cannabis metabolites can be detected in urine for up to 60 days after use.

Of note, in cases where cessation of cannabis use does not produce a resolution of symptoms, cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome should be excluded as a possible diagnosis.
