5 Cannabis Strains That Won’t Give You The Munchies
One of the most well-documented effects of consuming cannabis is the munchies. We’re all familiar with that insatiable urge to devour a whole pizza, eat food good for two… basically putting anything in your mouth feels good when you’ve got a case of the munchies. This effect is so common that a movie, Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle, was even made about it!
This is why many have the misconception that being a pothead equates to being fat and lazy. The truth is that there are several “skinny” marijuana strains that won’t give you the munchies. Some people have even been able to successfully integrate cannabis into their weight-loss regimen! Certain strains won’t give you the munchies because they contain a cannabinoid that can effectively suppress hunger. Called THC-V (tetrahydrocannabivarin), this cannabinoid can curb your appetite while giving you that wonderful psychedelic high that we all love. THC-V can also reduce anxiety. High CBD strains also help curb the munchies; a recent Yale study found that THC stimulates a bunch of nerve cells in the brain’s hypothalamus, the area that is responsible for governing hunger as well as arousal. While little is known about CBD’s impact on appetite, we do know that it counteracts many of the effects of THC.
