How Cannabis Boosts Appetite

Feeding your stomach with some extra pie after getting the munchies is a common side-effect of marijuana. However, for medical patients who are facing an appetite problem, it is a boon. Medical studies have also confirmed that Medical Marijuana helps build your appetite.

In this video we will highlight how cannabis boosts your appetite.

But before that we will make an attempt to explain what exactly happens in your body when you consume cannabis and how it increases your hunger level?

There are two types of cannabinoid receptors – CB1 and CB2. CB2 regulates cell proliferation, immunity and inflammation, whereas CB1 controls memory, pain, and appetite. These receptors are found in different areas of your body. Once you consume cannabis, the THC and other cannabinoids bind with the CB1 receptors, these in return stimulate your appetite. Moreover, cannabis increases your sensitivity to smell and flavor, there by tricking your brain to think it is starving.

Using Cannabis to increase appetite is not a new thing. In 2700 BC, Chinese people would drink Cannabis tea to feel hungry. Similar records have been found in India too.
