Cannabis is the most widely used recreational drug worldwide, and now after its legalization, it is used by more than half of the population of the United States either for recreational or medicinal use. Recently, cannabis has been implicated as a cause of acute pancreatitis when no other etiology is identified. This case report discusses a 19 -years-old male with no significant past medical history apart from extensive cannabis and vaping abuse, presenting with the unique clinical picture of acute pancreatitis. Additionally, we emphasized that cannabis use is emerging as an overlooked cause of acute pancreatitis and that screening for cannabis use with careful history and/or urine toxicology is crucial. Hence, to bring to notice the rising incidence of cannabis-induced pancreatitis, we report a case of acute pancreatitis with no identifiable risk factor apart from heavy cannabis use in pure drip vaping.
