might sound pretty dumb but why is it that it makes people get so hungry after smoking marijuana?
smoking weeed is what makes you hungry after smoking weed
Your metabolism is raised I believe. In theory, you could smoke bud and not eat as a diet type thing...
...but who's gonna do that now?
I don't know any science, but food tastes so much better when you're stoned, it's ridiculous.
He did say in theory. God help the man who thinks it could ever be anything more than that.
The natural feeling of "Hunger" is caused by low blood sugar. Smoking Weed lowers your blood sugar, and you get "the munchies."
Funny. Working out has the same effect.
I don't think anyone really knows, but one of the brain areas with high concentrations of CB1 receptors (to which THC binds) is the hypothalamus. The hypothalamus is involved in appetite control, so there's a good chance that what's going on in there is giving you the munchies.
