Nausea & Vomiting

Nausea and vomiting involves involuntary but coordinated contractions of the stomach, respiratory, and esophageal muscles to eject the stomach’s contents through the mouth.

Nausea and vomiting are also common occurrences following chemotherapy, as the toxic pharmacological agents do not differentiate between cancer cells and healthy cells. Retching and vomiting occur because of toxins detected by the brain. A signal travels from the vomiting center (area postrema), down cranial nerves, salivary glands, and diaphragmatic and gastrointestinal muscles, which initiates vomiting.

How Cannabis Can Help

Cannabis has been a time-proven remedy for nausea and vomiting (N/V) in most recorded healing traditions.  The main cannabinoids of therapeutic interest are primarily THC and, to a lesser degree, THCA, CBD, and CBDA. Research has also elucidated several precise receptor mechanisms. Cannabinoids produce their therapeutic effects on reflex N/V primarily via CB1 and 5-HT1A and TRPV1. Studies have shown that Chemtype 1 (THC>CBD) is superior to achieve therapeutic effects with chemotype II  (THC=CBD) coming in second to provide relief, all of which may be purchased at a dispensary. Contact our nurse line at 970-404-HOPE (4673) for help shopping at the dispensary.  Cannabinoids are also very helpful for other GI disorders as shown on image.
