Cannabinoid hyperemesis syndromecan be relieved by hot showers

This is a case report of a 19-year-old woman with cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome (CHS), which is characterised by cyclic vomiting and nausea, relieved by hot showers and caused by chronic cannabis usage.

Lack of evidence makes treatment difficult and is primarily symptomatic. Attention to cannabis usage is needed when admitting patients with emesis.
