According to a new article published by The New York Times, hot  showers and baths are becoming a common treatment for Cannabinoid  hyperemesis syndrome--a condition among heavy marijuana users that  involves cyclic vomiting and unbearable pain. Until recently, the  syndrome was considered to be rare. However, emergency rooms are  starting to see a steady increase in cases--especially in states that  have legalized marijuana.  

“After marijuana was legalized in Colorado,  we had a doubling in the number of cases of cyclic vomiting syndrome we  saw,” says Dr. Cecilia J. Sorensen, an emergency room doctor at  University of Colorado Hospital. And a new study out of New York City  seems to back those findings. Of the 155 patients who participated and  said they smoked marijuana at least 20 days a month, 51 users said they  had during the past six months experienced nausea and vomiting that were  specifically relieved by hot showers.
