Marijuana Munchies Explained by Science
Scientific studies are beginning to successfully unravel the mystery of why we get the munchies—THC stimulates appetite by regulating a group of neurons that normally suppress the appetite—even when we’re definitely not hungry.
Hence, the use of medical marijuana in the treatment of patients dealing with a loss of appetite due to complications with chemotherapy, cancer or HIV, to name a few.
Herein lies one of the pot paradoxes—weed smokers generally have a lower body mass index (BMI) and are less at risk for diabetes.
And we should try and keep it that way, so choose your munchies well.
Studies concluded that weed helps improve insulin control and regulates body weight, which explains why stoners don’t become obese from all that snacking.
Senior Citizen Removed from Assisted-Living Facility for Smoking Pot
Paul Disnard lived in a cabin on an isolated mountain road in the Aspen, Colorado area for many years. Since December, the 68-year-old has lived with 11 other seniors in an assisted-living complex called Whitcomb Terrace—from where he’ll soon be forcibly removed. For his own health. Because he smoked weed.
As the Aspen Daily News is reporting, Aspen Valley Hospital, Disnard’s landlord, has been trying to evict him since February ever since they discovered that Disnard smoked weed.
Disnard argued that “this was all Colorado, and that it was legal to have it”—but the assisted-living facility’s director made the case that for Disnard, who uses supplemental oxygen from a tank, smoking weed is dangerous for himself and others. Because there could be an explosion.
