The medical definition describes nausea this way – ” stomach queasiness, the urge to vomit.Nausea can be brought on by many causes, including systemic illness ( such as influenza), medications, pain, and inner ear disease.”
Nausea and the need to vomit are symptoms that something is wrong – here are some examples that may prompt the sensation or act of nausea/ vomiting.
Obstruction of bowel
How do you determine if you need to go to the emergency room?
Dr.Brian Kirsh reports the following-“ For the most part ,patients with uncontrolled vomiting for more than four or five hours meaning they can’t keep down even clear liquids should go to the emergency room,especially young children or elderly adults.The young and old are more susceptible to becoming ill more quickly ,in terms of dehydration “

So now to the good stuff! Does medical marijuana help nausea and the resounding answer is heck yes!
Scarlett and I have been in the medical field for years, primarily hospice patients ( our passion), but we can tell you CBD has helped many hospice and none hospice folks with nausea. It has been a blessing.
Fortunately, the stigma with medical marijuana /cannabis/CBD is becoming less as education is getting out to the public regarding the profound research, and evidence of the wonderful benefits people are getting.
Scarlett and I have often talked about the stigma and how it can harm people when they just don’t know what they don’t know.
We thru the years have witnessed patients being abused by their spouses and didn’t want to tell anyone because of the stigma. So they stated in the abusive relationship for years.
That is so sad !
Guys, we encourage to look at our website to gain more knowledge of the benefits of CBD and discuss with your medical team. Our products are safe , and effective. Many prescription drugs for nausea have many adverse/negative effects. Some folks that didn’t know about CBD have told us they opted not to take their prescription medicine for nausea because of the nasty side effects. Now that is just messed up, right?
You know what’s ironic with that statement? We have had many, many, people tell us that they are on CBD products and shared it with their doctor and the doctors ( plural) have asked them to order CBD for them.
Scarlett and I are passionate about being advocates for everyone. Our goal is to research, search, and bring the information to you, so you and your loved ones can be informed!
Please share with us what you would like to know about CBD as well as your experiences and how it has helped you or your loved one.
Elaine and I being in Hospice for over 70 years combined.
We’ve seen first-hand patients who have been helped by different medicines. Some conventional some not. We are advocates of
Medical Marijuana because it does work. And for CBD oil which is readily available and legal for everyone. If you are interested in checking it out.
