Default Weight and marijuana

Hello, I have a question. I have read that using marijuana can help to lose weight. I am interested in this question because I have some problems with this and try to find any way to resolve my problem. SO I find the article on AddictionResourse which describes all the sides of using this substance. But it difficult to believe everything you read on the internet and I decide to ask. If somebody has the same situation and experience let me know. Thank you!

LOL. Are you honestly asking if it is a good idea to use marijuana to lose weight? Loss of appetite is a RARE side effect in some people but for the overwhelming majority it causes something called "the munchies". Heck, they even give cancer patients dronabinol (pill form THC) to increase appetite. Thanks for the laugh.

In my experience marajuana has caused me to eat much more in the past. Because of "the munchies". THC, the active ingredient in it is considered a strong appetite stimulant. On the other hand, CBD oil, made from hemp has shown to be effective for many things including, I think weight loss. Idk if this is true though.

I think Flower has hit on something with the CBD oil as potential weight loss assistant. CBD oil does not have the psycho active ingredient marijuana has. My sister uses CBD oil for cancer! This whole field will become much more developed over time, especially now that medical and recreational is legal in Canada and some states. There's a lot of disinformation out there and I get all of the fear re: the psycho-active stuff. I mean who wants their kids mood altering? But the CBD and other ingredients the plant, stalk and leaves have to offer could be incredibly helpful to many ailments.

As maijauana is legal in my state I have done a lot of reading and there is still a stigma attached to it but www.leafly.com is a good place to explain the difference of CBD and THC this website will also explain the differences between Indica vs. Sativa it is a great simple place to start. I have used Indica tinture to help me relax and sleep but not on a regular basis. I have never looked to this as a way to manage weight loss though.

The only way that could work is if your throat gets so sore you can't swallow.

Hey posters, I think Fran is a troll and maxiyat is a computer program troll or something. Always best to ignore the trolls.

Actually, Marijuana IS known to help some people lose weight and my sister just lost 40 lbs on it. She got it for back pain and did not expect the benefit. I have been trying since December to use it but it doesn't seem to be working for me. I suspect that I am not taking enough. I am also concerned it might require smoking. So far all scientific studies that have shown that it works have been with people that smoked it. My sister smokes it.

I also thought this could be my sisters was sick or something but I am part of an intermittent fasting facebook group and someone asked the question and SOOO many people respond that yes they thought it helped.

Many people think morning coffee and smoking helps weight loss. But the scientists accept this method hinders health. Scanning for an answer on how to get weight , I found interesting information. In order to normalize weight, it is worth taking CDB oil (), it helps to improve metabolism. The healthy metabolism is key to normalizing weight. What do you think about it?

I am pretty sure the only thing that might help is CBD oil. It can help improve mood, alleviating depression, therefore you're more likely to care about yourself.
