The Info On THC Illness Explained
Welcome back everyone thanks for joining me today in a weekly round up of cannabis news now and so much more. Today’s major headlines show us much of the same headlines, cannabis use on the rise some publications hinting at COVID lockdowns being the reason while others point to legalization efforts being the cause but perhaps both have contributed to it.
It shouldn’t be any surprise to anyone that cannabis use is rising across the nation, especially while law makers discuss frame work for legalization. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again I believe there is global interests behind all the cannabis talk today, what the purpose is no one knows but I sense the cannabis and hemp agricultural industry may have something to do with it.
The Hemp Revolution
As you may have heard over the years hemp and cannabis have many uses and I’ve bounced around the idea that governments are beginning to really consider the wide use and implementation of hemp derived products in every facet of living where applicable. Why you may ask, well look at where we are as a civilization we have abused the planet to incredibly unsustainable limits and maybe weed and hemp are here to save the day and save us from ourselves. The idea could be due to the wide use of hemp which can lead the world into an era of building for longevity and sustainability that includes resources and how everything is made.
So that is the idea of global acceptance of hemp and cannabis and the bigger picture of why so many are smoking now then ever before. The mere acceptance by state governments to now other countries in Europe and Asia makes for a pretty big social perception shift on cannabis as a whole.
What Is CHS
Now the main headline for today is about how teens have been using cannabis from very early ages of 14 to their present age, the story is taken from the perspective of Ellyse a young lady who started using cannabis oil vapes at 14 and now at the age of 18 suffers from multiple different issues from constant vomiting to anxiety and more. After many visits to the E.R. she was diagnosed with a rare syndrome associated with chronic cannabis use. The story was very one sided, the syndrome itself suggests it’s uncommon and only happens to very few people.
The Basics Of THC
The bottom line is all cannabis products out today are high in THC low in cannabinoids such as CBD, CBD, CBA etc. The article suggests the weed is too potent and it’s leading to harmful effects on young people who use them frequently.
Cannabis Use Syndrome called Cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome (CHS) for anyone interested in doing more reading on that.

What is cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome?
Cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome is a condition characterized by recurrent vomiting in heavy marijuana users. It can cause episodes of severe and uncontrollable vomiting, often accompanied by abdominal pain and nausea. It is believed to be caused by long-term and excessive use of high-THC cannabis products.
What are the potential harmful effects of frequent and high-dose cannabis use among adolescents?
Frequent and high-dose cannabis use among adolescents can have several potential harmful effects. These include uncontrollable vomiting and addiction, increased risk of developing psychosis and psychiatric disorders, higher likelihood of experiencing depression and suicidal ideation, alterations in brain anatomy and connectivity, and impaired memory function.
How has the potency of cannabis products changed over the years?
The potency of cannabis products has significantly increased over the years. In 1995, the average concentration of THC (the psychoactive component) in seized cannabis samples was about 4 percent. By 2017, it had risen to 17 percent. Furthermore, cannabis manufacturers now extract THC to create highly concentrated products such as oils, edibles, waxes, and crystals. Some of these products advertise THC levels exceeding 95 percent.
Are there any regulations on the potency of cannabis products?
Currently, there is a lack of comprehensive regulations on the potency of cannabis products in most states. Only Vermont and Connecticut have imposed THC concentration caps, limiting concentrates above 60 percent and cannabis plant material above 30 percent THC. However, the effectiveness of these specific levels in ensuring safety remains uncertain. The National Cannabis Industry Association generally opposes arbitrary potency limits but supports proper testing and labeling of products.
What steps can be taken to address the potential dangers of high-THC cannabis products?
To address the potential dangers of high-THC cannabis products, it is important to implement comprehensive measures. These include age restrictions and regulations that require proper testing and labeling of products. Educating the public, especially parents and adolescents, about the risks associated with cannabis use is crucial. Additionally, promoting alternative legal markets for cannabis can help replace illegal sources that lack adherence to safety standards and age restrictions.
