“The Munchies” is a common expression due to the appetite-inducing effects generated by consuming marijuana flowers. This is because THC is similar to the natural endocannabinoid system, which controls much of the body. Marijuana links to natural receptors, thereby “tricking” the brain into signalling the body that it is hungry. This is not good for regular folks trying to watch their waistline, but is excellent for medical patients. Specifically, chemotherapy patients and individuals struggling with eating disorders who may have an issue with appetite or weight loss. Additionally, cannabis creates a higher sensitivity to the smell of food, which is closely linked to taste. That is why dessert is so much better after a strong toke!
Whatever reason you have for needing to motivate your mind or body into being hungry, Fair Canna Care is here to help! We have a number of hunger-inducing strains in our online cannabis dispensary shop including: Skywalker OG, Girl Scout Cookies (even sounds good!) and Sage ‘N Sour, among others.
