Cannabis use is on the rise across the United States. Cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome is an emerging condition that has recently gained recognition and creates several diagnostic and therapeutic challenges. The only definitive treatment for this condition is the complete cessation of cannabis use. Topical capsaicin cream shows promise as a non-invasive and inexpensive option to provide symptomatic relief for this condition in the emergency department setting.
