Some people deny their diagnosis of CHS because cannabis is often thought of as a treatment for nausea, not something that causes it.

Cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome is a medical condition that causes repeated and severe vomiting in long-term, daily cannabis users.

CHS has a very short history in the world of medicine, first described in 2004 by a team of researchers in Australia. Now, 18 years later, CHS remains a relatively unknown condition for many cannabis users.

With the legalization of cannabis in many states, CHS is likely to become more well known in the cannabis and medical communities in the near future.

The increasing potency of cannabis is likely to lead to more cases of CHS in the future. People using concentrated cannabis may experience symptoms of CHS faster than those using flower forms due to the high potency of the concentrate. On average, concentrates have three times more tetrahydrocannabinol, the chemical responsible for the mental effects of cannabis, than buds, according to a Karger review article.

CHS is often misdiagnosed because it is not well known in the medical community, according to an article in Current Drug Abuse Reviews. Misdiagnosis is also common because daily cannabis users often do not disclose their use to doctors because cannabis still carries negative stigmas.
