Cannabis (marijuana) is an increasingly prevalent substance used in college-aged adults. Cannabinoid Hyperemesis Syndrome (CHS) is 1 outcome of chronic cannabis use, which presents as cyclic intractable vomiting that can be temporarily relieved with hot baths or showers. This case discusses a collegiate football athlete who presents with intractable vomiting, and it underscores the importance of a detailed history to discern CHS from other more common diagnoses. The report will highlight key diagnostic characteristics, pathophysiology, and treatment options for patients with presumed CHS.
