Medical Cannabis for Nausea and Vomiting

Treatments tailored to you

Nausea is a common condition that causes patients to feel unwell. It may or may not be accompanied by vomiting. In most otherwise healthy individuals, nausea is short-lived and can be a reaction to motion sickness, food spoiling or pain. Pregnancy, cancer treatment, heart disease, infection and head injuries can also cause nausea.

For some, nausea can be persistent, uncontrolled and debilitating. In extreme cases, it can lead to dehydration, weight loss and even death.
