Weight is something that many people struggle with, and according to research published in 2016:
“More than 35% of U.S. adults are obese.”
Cannabis is known to increase consumers appetite AKA give them the munchies. But did you know that cannabis can also help with weight loss? You heard that right. Cannabis can actually act as an appetite suppressant rather than an appetite stimulant.
There are strains high in certain cannabinoids and terpenes that help promote weight loss. As the science of this misunderstood plant develops we’re learning that it’s not all about THC when it comes to weed. Breeders are starting to work on potent new genetics that focus on a different potency.

Cannabinoids are the compounds found in cannabis like THC, CBD, THCV, CBG, CBN, THCVa, THCa, and more. There are hundreds of cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant with some in such miniscule amounts they’re hard to detect.
