The madness of the fridge is not something. The new study Tuesday is the latest, which shows that using a pot, especially with food, can sometimes cause serious health problems to drive a hospital trip. She found that people in Colorado are increasingly seeking emergency aid for cannabis-related symptoms such as anxiety, rapid heartbeat and strange syndrome characterized by intense vomiting, as cannabis for recreation is legalized in the state. in 2012 and began to allow sales in 2014. So, researchers behind the study published in Annals of Internal Medicine looked at the medical data from patients who visited the emergency department of the UCHealth University of Colorado Hospital from 2012 to 2016. All of these visits were initially diagnosed as being related to cannabis use, with nearly 10,000 such visits being documented between those years. Approximately one quarter of these visits (27%) could be directly related to cannabis use, they also calculated. And while people are more likely to be in the hospital than smoking, problems are more likely to be caused by pots.
You can not bet on the pot, but powerful publishers send people to the hospital.
It is safe to say that cannabis dangers have long been exaggerated by moral crusaders and …

"About 10% of cannabis-related visits are related to edible forms of but only 0.32% of total cannabis sales are for food, "says lead author Andrew Monte, Associate Professor of Emergency Medicine and Emergency Toxicology at the University of Colorado Medical University. "It's 33 times bigger than we expected."
Edibles also appears to cause more serious side effects. Eighteen percent of food-related visits contain acute psychiatric symptoms, including panic attacks or psychosis attacks, compared with 10 percent of inhaled cannabis visits. Edibles were also more commonly associated with intoxication (48% versus 28% for inhaled pot) and cardiovascular symptoms (8.0% vs. 3.1%). hospitalization due to their symptoms. One of the main causes is the higher incidence of cannabinoid hypereemia (CHS) syndrome, a condition that causes terrible stomach pain, repeated vomiting, and forced hot showers (sufferers say that hot water soothes their symptoms). the findings are based on visits to one, though a large hospital in Colorado, we still do not know for sure that pot visits are increasing everywhere cannabis is legalized. The observer nature of the study also can not tell us whether the symptoms of someone, including psychosis, are actually caused by cannabis use, only that the two things are related. Studies have gone back and forth on whether people with a predisposition to mental illness such as schizophrenia are more likely to develop mental symptoms if they use cannabis.
This means it's definitely true that most people using cannabis will never go on as a result. It is considered that CHS is extremely rare, as it happens only in people who use heavy cannabis and its frightening symptoms disappear as soon as the person stops using cannabis.
But the findings suggest that ignorance of people with foods that can take hours to get them completely can cause them to take more than they should and make them get sick. They added that more needs to be done to study the potential harm to food and cannabis in general, including its link to mental health problems.
