What if Weed Made You Sick?

In our next Ask the Expert we will be exploring the condition known as Cannabinoid Hyperemesis Syndrome (CHS) . CHS is a condition brought on by cannabis which causes severe nausea, dehydration and excessive vomiting in some consumers. We have invited two young people to share their experience with CHS as well as a Doctor who has helped patients suffering from the syndrome.

In this talk we will explore:

  • what causes Cannabinoid Hyperemesis Syndrome
  • its diverse symptoms
  • how to identify CHS
  • what to do if you or someone is experiencing CHS and much more!

This panel discussion highlights the expertise and lived experience of Amy Fraser and Riley Essam, two young people who have suffered from the condition, and expert advice from Dr. Al Rodgers. Hargun Kaur, a Strategic Advisor of the Cannabis and Mental Health Project will moderate the discussion.
