In a recent study done by the Society for the Study of Ingestive Behavior (SSIB,) they went deeper to find a link between cannabis and your appetite. They were looking at the therapeutic and health benefits of prescribing cannabis to ill patients that are experiencing appetite loss. A lead researcher at Washington State University said “we’re finding genetic and physiological events in the body that allow cannabis to turn eating behavior on or off.”
THC specifically seems to have the strongest ability to affect hunger. If THC-heavy cannabis can stimulate your appetite it’d be extremely valuable to the medical world for multiple reasons. There are a myriad of illnesses that cause extreme appetite loss, which not only slows recovery, but reduces the overall quality of someone’s life. Researchers found that cannabis has the ability to release a hormone in the body called ghrelin which normally tells the brain to eat when you have an empty stomach. We put together three strains that you can easily find at Diamond Green that will get the ghrelin and munchies flowing before you know it.
3 Cannabis Strains That Potentially Induce Your Appetite
Amnesia by Mad Mark
Mad Mark does not mess around with the THC levels on his craft cannabis strains. In short, they’re always pretty damn high. His sativa-dominant offering of Amnesia is no different, in all of its sticky, crystally glory. This strain can come with intense psychotropic effects that are uplifting and euphoric, so be careful, as you might eat yourself out of house and home.
Orange Kush by The Hollingsworth Cannabis Co.
The folks at Hollingsworth have made something special in their Orange Kush. This tangy, yet hairy strain comes from Orange Bud and OG Kush to make a potent indica-dominant hybrid. This strain will give off relaxing vibes while also stimulating your body to potentially induce hunger.
Fire OG by Artizen
Artizen has taken a classic strain and done it justice with their Fire OG. Known for being one of the more potent OG strains, this one reeks of lemon to the point of almost smelling like floor cleaner. You’ll notice the typical look of the strain when looking at Artizen’s creation, with the nugs covered head-to-toe in fiery orange hairs.
