cannabis for weight loss

Post by Iris888 » Wed Oct 31, 2018 7:50 am

I am so obsessed with food but every time I look in the mirror it makes me feel so disappointed on myself. I did want lose weight but can't help to eat and eat more food, I already use all kinds of method on diet like keto, vegetarian, vegan etc. but it won’t work because of my eagerness to eat foods. So, I began to research what can help me on losing my weight and to lose appetite and I saw this www.ilovegrowingmarijuana.com/green-lantern/. A report from The American Journal of Medicine explains that regular cannabis use was associated with lower levels of fasting insulin and smaller waist circumference. Cbd and thc are also new to me and I don't even smoke. Alternatively, they've also found new ways to infuse cannabis on food and beverages. If this is true I can't find any solid conclusive evidence that speaks to its efficacy. Any personal experience or testimonial would be highly appreciated. Thanks

Unfortunately, cannabis is purported to cure everything including cancer. I am not a user, nor have I ever used. I guess you do what you need to do.

I've never used it but cannabis has long had a reputation for causing "the munchies." The reputation is so long-standing, it is a motif in many comedy acts. Perhaps you should ask your doctor about your issue.

edited to add: I found this article verifying that cannabis causes the munchies. Per this article, they are researching it's use in INCREASING APPETITE. So it doesn't sound like a good option for your needs.

Cannabis is used to help people regain their appetite in the case of chemotherapy and wasting diseases. I doubt it would be helpful for weight loss when it's used to help people keep weight on.
