Did you think the caption was going to be.. ‘what kind of munchies do you like ‘... nope! Not this time! 😂 We have all seen movies such as Harold & Kumar go to White Castle or Grandma’s boy. They are hysterical, stoner comedies with multiple scenes where I found myself laughing out loud. However, have you ever noticed that in every smoking movie there is a scene where whoever gets stoned and loses control of themselves to uncontrollable hunger? It is funny, but did you know that cannabis does not just help with increasing a person's appetite? Some cannabis can also regulate it. ——————————————————————————- Even though cannabis is medically/recreationally legalized in over 30 states, it is still federally illegal (I will repeat this over and over because this is a BIG DEAL). The legality of cannabis has made research on the plant/medicine extremely limited with only a few exceptions this means there is a shortage of evidence about the relationship between the use of cannabis and appetite and how it may affect individuals with obesity/diabetes. Isn’t that interesting? .. and upsetting.
Cannabis and its components deserve consideration as a subject for investigation as an alternative/addition to pharmaceuticals to help individuals who need help with appetite regulation. Just throwing this out there.
