    So I'm a Medical user of MJ. I use it 2 to 3 times every day. But after about 8 or 9 days of use straight or sometimes sooner I develop really bad stomach bloating and horrible gas. Its definitely the Cannabis. I end up having to take a break for a couple days to reset which sucks. And then once I start using again it starts to hit me again. What the hell?? Theres times where the Instant I inhale I can literally feel bubbles in my stomach starting to form and move around and then within 5 minutes im farting. And then within days my stomach is super bloated and I have sever gas.

    I did research online and from what I've found it's a form of cannabis hyperemesis syndrome or the beginning stages of it. And from what I've read. I definitely do not want to get that full blown and be vomiting my brains out.

    Anyone else get this? What do you do to help it? I do not want to stop using the herb as it helps with my pain and anxiety. So. Any suggestions?

    I get that way, when I run out. Almost as bad as Opiate WD's !

    You get gas and bloating from not using? I was on opiates for years and they were horrible. I can stop marijuana for days and get no withdrawals and certainly nothing like an opioid withdrawal. Cannabis THC is stored in your fat. So when you quit, run out or take a break your body wont go through withdrawal because the stored THC in your fat gets slowly released and naturally eases you off.

    My issue is while I'm using after awhile I feel like I get over cannabinoided out. And like I said I get really bad gas and stomach bloating. And get forced to take a break.

    How often do you use?

    I use daily and have been fortunate to never have this problem. Unless, of course, I snack out too hard on the wrong things.
  • TheZman

    Yeah snacking is definitely not my problem. I eat super clean. And MJ really doesn't give me the munchies anyways.

    There is no happy answer for you I think. My entire stomach situation has been turned upside down for a few years now because of substance I used which were too strong cb1 and cb2 agonists. I've never had your condition but in general drugs that agonize your receptors can change how you digestion works for life. You should really see a specialist. Consider taking a break to reset, try new strains or concentrates if its available to you. I generally have similar symptoms to you, except that now if i eat before bed I wake up in sever pain for 1-2 hours that rivals the pain of a kidney stone. You can also end up with symptoms that essentially amount to ibs. Not fun when you are under 30. Get checked out. Recently using wax over flower like 70% of the time has lessened symptoms in the last few days.

    Go to a Naturopath, and have an allergy test done for everything.

    Sounds scary AF. I know a lot if people dont realize you have cannabis receptors that regulate digestion. So when I mention my issue they think I'm crazy. I'm definitely taking a break. No doubt about it. I actually started out with concentrat half gram oil that you vape when the medical program was first introduced. But it was too strong. Upwards of 60% THC. And the 510 vape battery seemed to burn the oil into smoke vs vapor. The Flower is much easier to handle and dose for me unfortunately. I definitely feel like I have ins symptoms as well. Like right now my intestines are all crampy.

    Recently some fiber snacks and nexium has been very helpful. Also try keo pectate and zantac for any sudden problems

    When I Go Without, by the 3rd day, I go thru PHYSICAL WD SYMPTOMS. ...
    VOMITING
    COLD CHILLS
    SWEATS
    RLS
    INSOMNIA
    DIARRHEA

    Same Exact things Opiate WD does (been Opiate Free for 7 years, so I KNOW what that is like!)

    The symptoms OP refers to is CHS....Cannabis Hyperemesis Syndrome. ....I'VE READ WHERE PEOPLE ARE TRYING TO ASSOCIATE IT WITH NEEM OIL USE DURING GROWTH !

    WHY IS THAT ? Was an Opiate Addict for 16 years, minus an 18 month stint as a NA NAZI ! CULT!
  • TheZman

    I just took a Zantac. Hopefully it helps. Thanks.

    Zantac is good for acid buildup. Anything not acid related try Kaopectate or pepto for other stomach symptoms

    I always credited it to accidentally swallowing big rips, happens pretty often. Best thing to do is try to burp it out like Charlie in the exhaust tunnel

    oh ok. Yeah years ago. You couldn't pay me to touch them now. Cannabis is definitely way better. I just hope I can get this stomach and intestines issue under control.
  • TheZman

    yeah its definitely not because of that. Lol..

    Exactly...what Started off as Analgesia before and after a Elbow surgery, 5 months of Intense Physical Rehab, turned into a 16 year Addiction. To the point of Stealing your wallet, then helping you Look for it...all to keep from being deathly ill. I WASN'T AND ADDICT, IT WAS PRESCRIBED BY A DOCTOR, SMH !
    Cannabis would take the Edge off of the WD's, but, the Edge is All. Thank GOD for That !
    2,576 days DOPE FREE !
    Only time I've gotten Gas or Bloated from Cannabis is Because of the MUNCHIE AFTERMATH......Anyone ever tried a Frito's JalapeƱo Bean Dip and Cheese Whiz sandwich...?
    If Not, you're Missing Out....LOL !

    Yeah that Jalepeno bean dip probably didnt help. Lol..

    I might be CHES, in that case cutting down to your individual tolerance level is good.
    Besides the general category of bad snacks, it might be good to rule out celiac disease, or intolerance or sensitivity to gluten or other affecting food substance.
    Another possibility is a " sick gut" where the inflammatory prostaglandin e2 cascade can slow down your gi motility( movement) in the presence of cannabis and cause similar problems you noted.
    I hope your doing better.
  • TheZman

    What is CHES?? And the "Sick gut" and slowing down the GI mobility sounds like what I have going on. Almost similar to what opioids did. Almost. They were worse.

    I believe @Munzo58 meant CHS- cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome.
  • TheZman

    I wonder if I can still use my pure CBD strain till it resolves?? Or does that effect the GI tract too?
  • Munzo58

    Yes, I did mean CHS, thanks Bobcat, with some chronic gi diagnosis the above I mentioned can cause problems, yes opioids have similar but different total effects.
    I wonder if different straslow down? To THC/ CBD would allow more therapeutic use without invoking the inflammatory response and gi slowdown?
  • Munzo58

    Typo --- not straslow- should be strain ratio.
