Why do we get the muchies ?
    #4500453 - 08/05/05 04:37 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Does MJ just magically make you hungry ?

Or does it actually speed-up your metabolism ?

Cannabinoids are used in some areas of the brain to signal hunger and such. THC, being a cannabinoid, attaches to these receptors and makes your brain think your body is hungry :wink:

Dude, not only that but it totally fucks with what you WANT to eat. Normally I never eat ice cream anymore, and I try to avoid a lot of meat. Before the last time I smoked, I had a vegetable sandwich and it was soooooo good. I loved every bite of it. I also had meat for dinner and some for lunch, so I had my meat.

But when I smoked, I thought about a vegetable sandwich and it GROSSED me out! I couldn't fathom eating it. I ate microwave corn dogs and peanut butter ice cream. It didn't just make me hungry, it made me hungry for bullshit. It was wierd.

Years and years ago when I first started smoking I came up with some really wacked out theory about the THC dissolving in the food in your stomach, and thus the more you eat, the more THC is released, causing you to get hungry (yes, I was quite dumb at this point, lol).

Trendal is right:

Quote:

Until recently, the munchies were a relative mystery. However, a recent study by Italian scientists may explain what happens to increase appetite in marijuana users. Molecules called endocannabinoids bind with receptors in the brain and activate hunger.

This research indicates that endocannabinoids in the hypothalamus of the brain activate cannabinoid receptors that are responsible for maintaining food intake. The results of the study were published in an April 2001 issue of the scientific journal Nature.

So it doesn't really speed up your metabolism.

It just makes you think you're hungry...right ?

Well there are a lot of fat stoners. At least I've met my fair share :smirk:

I don't really know any stoners who actually pig out on food when they get high. Most that I know (including myself) like snack foods more than a LOT of food. It's all about good tastes, and variety :wink:
