From Joe D. Goldstrich, MD, on Cannabinoid Hyperemesis Syndrome,
My current thinking is that CHS is most likely caused by Azadirachtin from Neem oil. Despite treating hundreds of patients with very high doses of THC, I have yet to see a case. It’s as good a working hypothesis as any, methinks. https://www.google.com/search?q=cannabis+hyperemesis+syndrome+Azadirachtin&source=lnt&tbs=qdr:y&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiPze320-bWAhUm9IMKHb43D64QpwUIHw&biw=1526&bih=666
From Nancy Sajben, MD:
I thought results showed they were down, not up. (With a link to a newspaper story headed: “Legal cannabis linked to 66% rise in traffic deaths in Colorado: Study reveals surge in fatal motor accidents since the state went green in 2013.”
Retro Message from FG: Consider the source (The Daily Mail) and the source’s source (the National Drug Control Strategy, a product of the downsized Drug Czar’s office) and the source’s source’s source (the Rocky Mountain High Intensity Drug Traffic Area, a mechanism for channeling federal funds to narcotics officers from various agencies in four states)… A reader in the UK commented, “I see from the original article the majority of 550 deaths were caused by alcohol, some both alcohol and cannabis. Just 13 with cannabis only were over the limit. So the real issue is alcohol.” That’s enough fact-checking. The article is blatantly slanted and the neoprobes win when we waste our time refuting their fake news.
