It is paradoxical and somewhat perplexing, but scientific studies have revealed that regular cannabis users have lower body mass index (BMI) figures than non-cannabis users, according to a study in the International Journal of Epidemiology.

THC is the chemical that gives marijuana its mind-altering effects. This substance is present in other plants, such as hemp and canola. The outcome may differ depending on many factors such as age, gender, weight, and even your genetic makeup. It can have a positive or negative impact depending on the person and their body chemistry. For example, some individuals may feel more energetic while others may feel sleepy.

The way that cannabis may affect weight loss is through the cannabinoid THCV. In low to moderate doses, THCV may block CB1 receptors in the brain that control appetite. But in higher doses, THCV is psychoactive and could have some of the same effects as THC, including appetite stimulation. However, if you use a Sativa-dominant strain high in cannabidiol (CBD) and lower in THC, you may experience appetite suppression, even with elevated THCV levels.

Indica hybrids with high THC content contain appetite-stimulating properties that may stimulate hunger, or more commonly known as the "munchies"! Cannabis consumption can be used to boost appetite and weight gain in people who struggle to eat, such as people with disorders, illnesses, or people undergoing treatment for cancer. 

When exhibiting this case of the munchies, we recommend making sure you have plenty of healthy food and snacks around. Fruits, vegetables, whole grains, yogurts, and lean proteins (like chicken and fish) are quick and healthy options rather than processed, high-fat, and carbohydrate-filled junk foods like chips and cookies.
