Mostly, the individuals whom I’ve seen smoking weed are skinny. But, it doesn’t mean that all people smoking marijuana will be skinny.

Let’s find out what various studies have to say about marijuana and weight loss.

This is true that marijuana use is associated with munchies (increased appetite).

Normally, pot smokers consume 600 more calories. But, still marijuana users aren’t obese as per the studies mentioned above.

The reason for the increased appetite isn’t clear. But, it may be due to the stimulation of ghrelin hormone by THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol).

Ghrelin is a potent appetite stimulator and is often called “The Hunger hormone.”

This hormone also helps in breaking down and metabolizing carbohydrates in our bodies. So, weed makes you hungry, but at the same time, it helps in metabolizing your food by stimulating ghrelin.
