This can cause a reduction in energy, strength, and immunity. But there are certain cannabis strains that can help in dealing with the loss of appetite. And while there are many cannabis strains out there, it can become a bit tricky to choose the right strain for yourself. That’s why you should always consult Chino Hills marijuana doctors before choosing a strain. These doctors can guide you and help you choose the right strain for your problem. Today, we will talk about some of the best cannabis strains that people widely use for loss of appetite. But first, let’s discuss how cannabis can help in increasing your appetite.

How medical marijuana can stimulate appetite?

You must have heard your friends or other cannabis users joking about “the munchies.” It is a known fact that cannabis can induce hunger. “The munchies” is a phenomenon that tells about the ability of cannabis inducing a rampant and raging appetite. This uncontrollable appetite is mainly caused because of the THC present in cannabis. THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, is one of the main compounds present in cannabis. It is a psychoactive compound that causes the high.

The loss of appetite is a problem that patients battling cancer or HIV-related anorexia struggle with. For these patients, it becomes difficult to find the desire to eat. And sometimes, certain medications lead to suppressing the appetite of patients. Chronic pain can also lead to decreasing the desire to eat. Other than that, nausea and vomiting (caused due to certain medications and conditions) can also cause trouble for your appetite. Fortunately, medical marijuana can help people deal with most of these symptoms. This makes it a reliable option to boost appetite.

When you consume cannabis, THC interacts with the endocannabinoid system (ECS) of the body. ECS is a series of receptors that are present throughout the body on the membranes of various cell types. The two main receptors of ECS are CB1 and CB2. The ECS has various roles, and one of the main roles is to control energy homeostasis. THC interacts with the receptors of the ECS and can affect the signaling of this system. 

THC activates CB1 receptors that lead to the release of certain hormones. These hormones induce the sensation of hunger. This is basically a side effect of THC that actually helps people! THC makes the user enjoy the taste of food even more whilst being high. This can even help people suffering from anorexia. 

I have prepared a list of some of the best cannabis strains that have the ability to stimulate the appetite. So, let’s get into it.

Pineapple Kush

This amazing strain is produced by breeding the legendary OG Kush and the tasty and fruity Pineapple. This merging results in an appetite-inducing masterpiece, Pineapple Kush.

Pineapple Kush is a great choice for a busy day, which will also induce an urge to eat. This strain comes with high levels of THC that reach up to 18 percent. And if you are looking to grow this strain, remember that Pineapple Kush prefers a mild environment.

Haze Berry is nothing less than a superstar within the states where medical cannabis is legal. This strain is famous for its intensely stimulating Sativa high that can increase your appetite. Haze Berry is an 80 percent Sativa dominant cannabis strain that is produced by merging Blueberry and Shining Silver Haze. The high produced by this Sativa dominant strain activates the mind. It also provides feelings of motivation and increases productivity while causing subtle stoning effects. 

But you need to be careful before using this strain. Haze Berry has high levels of THC that can reach up to 20 percent. You should not really mess around with this amount of THC. However, it also has medium levels of CBD that offers a chilling effect to its high.

Is there any doubt about the dominance of this legendary cannabis strain. It is probably the most famous cannabis strain in the cannabis world. OG Kush can be recognized by both veterans and novices. It was originally produced in Northern California’s cultivation mecca. And soon after its production, it became famous worldwide.

Although, the origin story of this strain is still in debates. Some people believe that OG Kush is an Indica beast that was produced by mixing Chemdawg, Lemon Thai, and Pakistani Kush. On the other hand, many people believe that it is simply a Chemdawg. No matter what people debate on, we know that OG Kush is an amazing strain. It offers a stunning Indica high that can almost immobilize you. It induces a massive appetite after you consume this amazing strain. You will enjoy the pleasant flavors of pine, fruit, and citrus.
