This effect, described by cannabis enthusiasts as the “munchies”, has been well-known for decades! Munchies are a pleasant side-effect of cannabinoids – the most active and studied of them, THC, has long been observed to enhance the taste and enjoyment of food. Nowadays, THC is even used in medicine to increase appetite in patients suffering from the loss of this due to anorexia and toxic cancer treatments.
Luckily for all of us, increased appetite while high on weed doesn’t necessarily mean gaining kilos! A recent study by the American Journal of Medicine has shown that cannabis regulates the body's response to sugar, affecting the production of insulin in such a way that even when eating a lot of sweets and snacks, the body stay slim and fit.
