Does Smoking Weed Make You Lose Weight?


Does Smoking Weed Make You Lose Weight?

We all want to know what helps us lose weight and the big question of the day is: Does Smoking Weed Make You Lose Weight?

Yes, the munchies are a real thing and sometimes it gets the best of us, but what if there was a way to help curb appetite, cravings, and STILL enjoy consuming weed?

Pot-induced junk food binges are obviously not great for the waistline, so don’t waste your time and keep reading.

While almost nobody goes for the veggies when the munchies kick in, it would be beneficial but almost impossible. Weight gain has most definitely been associated with cannabis, but it doesn’t have to be.

There really is some interesting science emerging about how smoking marijuana affects your appetite and how it directly impacts weight loss or weight gain.

So could THC, or CBD help you shed those extra Covid pounds?

While the research is still relatively new and changing on a regular basis, some interesting findings have most definitely come to light.

What to Know About Smoking Weed and Weight Loss

Scientific studies on mice and rats in Europe, specifically Poland have concluded that there is a correlation between cannabis use and a reduction in BMI.

So having said this, it is very important to note that cannabis is not a prescription for weight loss by any means.

If you have unhealthy eating habits and you don’t get enough exercise then all of this information is moot. Simply put.

Consuming edibles is a fantastic way to help you manage, and calculate how much weed is going in your system.

You can choose CBD high strains that still contain smaller amounts of THC to counteract the cravings and enjoy making your own weed edibles at home.


The Bottom Line

While the jury is still out on this verdict, we do suggest you work with your medical professional team to make sure that anything you consume doesn’t interact badly with any current meds.

Obviously, lifestyle is a huge factor in weight loss or weight gain, and cannabis can be a supporting actress in the big scheme of things when done properly and consciously.

Next time you partake, try having a tray of veggies and fruits nearby and see if it satisfies.

If you’re interested in making CBD gummies at home here’s a great recipe to try out.
