smoking weed with food poisoning

I have bad food poisoning, will marijuana help with my nausea. Please read explanation before judging?

I have very bad food poisoning and cannot sleep, eat, drink or stop throwing up. Ive researched all day online and have tried everything to make my stomach settle down but nothing is working. I have smoked weed before so i know the side effects and i understand its illegal so telling me this will not make me not do it. I want to smoke to see if it will help, but i dont want to risk making it worse. Have any of you tried it while sick? Please dont report i just want the answer. Thanks.

With alot of people, pot helps nausea. With some, it can make them sicker. With me, it would make it worse. So that’s your call. Keep in mind, if you would get worse, would you want to go the hospital high?

Have you tried crackers, toast, ginger ale? Pepo Bismol (whatever it is, the pink stuff) helps me great.

Try to keep fluids in you.

As I’m sure you have recovered sometime in the last 5 years, this is for others that may come to this site with the same question. In my experience, only smoke a little bit at a time and it helps. If you go over board and take a huge bong rip, you’ll most likely break into a cold sweat and vomit. This often happens when one ingests too much marijuana at once on an empty stomach. I usually wait til I’ve stopped vomiting naturally then take a tiny hit and immediately feel like I can hold something down. I think loss of appetite after food poisoning is partly psychological and partly your body’s defense for taking in more harmful bacteria. So be careful not to go crazy about what you eat. Keep it light and low in fiber and sugar. Also avoid nuts.

As someone who just left the Er with a horrible case of food poisoning\ stomach bug. I got prescribed meds an I was in an out of sleep for 4 hrs or so.. and I took another dose of meds. I couldn’t wait the recommended 6 hr span. That round of meds helped with the vommitting, I still had the urge to tho. nauseous as hell. It just help keep everything down. Still had diarrhea, and an intense stomach ache. After about 8/9hrs in an out of sleep I decided smoking a joint couldn’t possibly make this any worse. 20 minutes later.. i’m up watching tv. Bout to eat for the first time all day

I promise you will be ok. All these stupid people on here are probably freaking you out. Marijuana is safer than aspirin. It has never killed anyone. Not even the MORON on here who actually went to the ER because he smoked it. You could have been having a panic attack. Just try to stay calm. A panic attack cannot hurt you, either. It just feels scary. You probably had some pretty strong pot, and you are not used to it. That said, some people do react poorly to marijuana. If it happens again, maybe you are one of those people. If you choose not to, well, thats good too. Either way, you are ok. It might not happen again. I think it was just strong and you started to freak out at first, is all. You will be just fine.
