Nausea

Many people have started using CBD to treat nausea and vomiting, based on preliminary results showing that CBD activates a neurotransmitter that decreases the sensation of nausea. More research—to identify appropriate combinations, dosages, and drug interactions—is needed for both natural and synthetic cannabinoids used for CINV as well as other types of nausea.

Unfortunately, natural cannabis is not yet a part of the global standard Clinical Practice Guidelines for Oncology, and in the US, because medical marijuana is still illegal at the federal level, researchers remain somewhat reluctant to register studies on clnicaltrials.gov. The recourse patients have is to pursue nausea treatment options in states that have approved medical cannabis use.
