AURORA, Colo. -- A little-known syndrome connected to heavy marijuana use is on the rise in Colorado, according to doctors.

Cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome, or CHS, was first described a decade ago, but researchers in Colorado said they are seeing double the number of cases since marijuana was legalized.

"The science behind it is not clear. We’re just starting to recognize that it even exists," said Dr. Kennon Heard, an emergency physician at the University of Colorado Hospital in Aurora. "The most likely cause is people using marijuana frequently and in high doses have changes in the receptors in their body, and those receptors become dysregulated in some way, and it starts causing pain."
