According to a report by Business Insider, very little is known about cannabinoid hyperemisis syndrome, better known as CHS, a condition that links heavy marijuana use to violent vomiting and nausea.

Business Insider reports that there is no cure for the disease, and the only long-lasting treatment is quitting cannabis completely. Dr. Nora Volkow, the director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse, wrote recently in a major medical journal, "We must recognize that the full range of potential adverse health consequences from cannabis consumption are not fully understood."
