It was a surprise. During the frenzied period after California legalized weed, Moon was a fixture at the marijuana mansion parties. She went from working at a medical marijuana dispensary to writing reviews of weed- infused snacks and drinks and selling flower crowns that hid a pipe, all while wearing a polychromatic raver style.

A former coworker of hers says that she was trying to be a cannabisinfluencer. That was the premise of the picture. Moon had a large following on the photo sharing site.

She began to vomit. Moon was horrified when her mom got an appointment with a gastrointestinal specialist who told her that her problems might be caused by her consuming too much cannabis.

I had heard about it before but didn't think it was real. It didn't make sense since one of pot's best-known therapeutic uses is alleviating the stomach trouble brought on by chemotherapy.

Only a small number of patients were identified in the medical literature at the time of her diagnosis. Patients were told by doctors that they had it. Someone had a set of symptoms, but there was no conclusive evidence that they had the disease.

The condition sounded crazy when Moon heard about it. She thought it was a fake concern intended to scare.

Alice Moon had amassed a large social media following as a cannabis influencer. Then she started getting sick.

There is a case of Alice Moon.

Pothead circles preferred that skepticism. After decades of seeing the federal government vilify marijuana and ignore evidence of the drug's medical potential, many stoners trust their own observations over institutional science. It's difficult to know who to trust in cannabis science. Everyone seems to have something in common. There isn't a lot of peer-reviewed research on weed. The studies funded and approved by the American government are more likely to support the idea that pot is bad for you.

Most people don't know much about the effects of marijuana on the body or the brain. Historical documents rarely mentioned in other fields are referred to in scientific investigations into cannabis. A paper published in the journal Chemistry and Biodiversity states that an ancient Egyptian papyrus advises cannabis and honey to cool the uterus and eliminate its heat during childbirth and that Assyrian clay tablets suggest weed for or against panic.

The paper's author is a doctor. He has more experience researching cannabinoids than any other person. Peter is a physician at Massachusetts General Hospital and an instructor at Harvard Medical School. Russo has a good knowledge of both disease and cannabis.
