BEVERLY, Mass., Nov. 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The December issue of The Journal of Investigative Medicine (JIM), the journal of the American Federation for Medical Research (AFMR), is publishing both a study and editorial on the important topic of Cannabinoid Hyperemesis Syndrome (CHS).
The research is entitled Cannabinoid Hyperemesis Syndrome: Definition, Pathophysiology, Clinical Spectrum, Insights into Acute and Long-Term Management.
The Study: Although cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome (CHS) was first reported more than 15 years ago, it still remains an unfamiliar clinical entity among physicians worldwide. With the legalization of marijuana in many states, CHS will become an increasingly prevalent clinical entity, so educating about CHS is an important goal, particularly for emergency department physicians who generally first encounter these patients.

The editorial, Cannabinoid Hyperemesis Syndrome: The Conundrum Is Here to Stay, is authored by Ron Schey, MD, University of Florida Health, Jacksonville.
