Marijuana Strains That Can Help Reduce Obesity

Marijuana Strains That Can Help Reduce Obesity

Perhaps you already know some of the great perks of Marijuana and you know that it helps a lot with many ailments. Studies have shown that the Body Mass Index (BMI) of people who consume cannabis is significantly lower than that of non-consumers, finding a difference of 2kg/m2 in the studied sample and making cannabis consumers leaner and nearer the healthy BMI range.

However, here is an interesting question: Do you know what strains of Marijuana are best if you are looking to lose the extra fat? I wouldn’t advise that you go pick up just any strain if you want to go from obese to normal weight in as little time as possible. If you do this, you might get lucky and up the right strains to get results but in the event that you are not an extremely lucky person, then you might find yourself about how it’s a hoax that marijuana strains to help reduce obesity. (I’ll tell you a secret; it’s not a hoax!). In this post, you’ll find the best marijuana strains to help reduce obesity.

Obesity can be so embarrassing, some of us have even lost the love of our lives because of our body size. Often times, we don’t get to wear the kind of clothes we desire and when in a gathering, we feel awkward because it seems like every other person is normal except for us. We feel the need to restrain when there’s a beach or pool party and put so much pressure on ourselves to work out and buy slim teas. But, did you know you can actually reduce your weight drastically using some unconventional means? There are marijuana strains that help to reduce obesity. Who would have imagined that cannabis can help reduce weight? Although we cannot totally depend on the use of cannabis, it certainly helps. The basics for weight loss are monitoring calorie intake, exercising, getting proper rest and sleep.

Since there are so many cannabis strains in the market today we would help you isolate the ones that are best for the treatment of obesity. Research shows that cannabis strains containing the cannabinoid THCV (tetrahydrocannabivarin) help to suppress the appetite, unlike THC which stimulates appetite and also keeps you from getting munchies and from getting high.

High-CBD Strains, Like Moby Dick, Harle-Tsu, Remedy, Harlequin, Sour Tsunami, Canna-Tsu, and Cannatonic

Ever tried a high-CBD strain before?  You’ve probably noticed that they don’t stimulate your appetite like THC-rich varieties. A Yale study published last year found that THC – the same chemical responsible for cannabis’ euphoric high – stimulated a group of nerve cells in the hypothalamus, the area of the brain that governs instincts like hunger and arousal.

Much less is known about CBD’s influence on appetite, we do know that this non-intoxicating constituent counteracts many effects of THC and researchers have even labeled CBD as an anti-obesity treatment based on the activity produced in the brain while administering CBD. Our own anecdotal evidence leads us to recommend high-CBD, low-THC strains for the best “munchie-less” experience, but a strain with equal parts CBD and THC can also induce less hunger with the added benefit of mild euphoria.

Moby Dick (Sativa)

As sweet and citrusy as this sativa might taste, Moby Dick doesn’t coerce the appetite as much as other strains. Expect instead to feel your mood and energy elevate to a place in which it’s easy to feel satisfied whether or not you treated yourself to an entire cheesecake. This sativa is lovingly embraced in Canada and Spain, although Americans have also reported sightings of the legendary Moby Dick in many markets.

Durban Poison (Sativa)

This strain is from South Africa and it has a very distinct blend of sweet and spicy smell. You’ll totally appreciate Durban poison if you want to lose weight and not gain any anymore as it helps a lot with this. It also has a high level of THC (about 24%) and the highest THCV strain there is. It stimulates creativity, sociability and overall mood, migraine relief and it also has anti-nausea properties. Just get it through the right channel, maybe pharmaceutical prescription. However, with this strain of Marijuana, you have to pay attention to the dosage as it can increase your susceptibility to a high level of anxiety.
