"Pearls
  • Cannabis is sold in many forms including marijuana (dried plant product), hashish, and higher concentration products (“dab,” “wax,” “honey,” “shatter,” “butane hash oil”).
  • Acute cannabis intoxication can range from desired psychoactive effects to severe life-threatening respiratory depression with the latter being more common in children.
  • Cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome, characterized by bouts of intense cyclic nausea/vomiting and relief with hot showers/baths, may be increasing with decriminalization of medical and recreational cannabis.
  • Consider secondary injuries related to cannabis use and production including motor vehicle collisions and severe burns.
  • Average THC concentrations of marijuana in the United States have increased related to the cultivation technique of sinsemilla (seedless female buds), which can yield an average concentration of 14.5% THC."
