Default Smoking weed makes you lose weight?

I know that cigarettes make you lose fat, and i got to wondering after noticing that despite the munchies, stoners are usually skinny. So does weed make you lose fat and if so, how?

The chemicals in ciggarettes work as an appetite supressant, so you get skinnier because you don't want to eat as often. Weed in no way makes you skinnier, it makes you hungry, and eat, which in turn will make you fat if you do it often enough.

I've smoked weed consistently for a good two and a half years, and have maintained my weight (of 108 lbs.) without much physical excersise. I think I can just eat lots of shitty food and not gain weight because of my age, more specifically, my metabolism. But i wouldn't in any way say that weed makes you loose weight.
On another note, when you munch out, it doesnt have to be on shitty food, I often munch on fruits and veggies while stoned.

I typically tend to eat alot of junk food when stoned. If theres healthy alternatives in the fridge then i will partake, however that is not usually the case. I do some fairly decent physical activity and have maintained my weight for a while now (6'1, 165)

I am a stoner and i actually gained weight when I began smoking daily. Nowadays, I can control my munchies so I lost the weight. I think it's a stereotype thing. Stoners come in all weights and sizes. But if you don't smoke weed regualarly and begin to with the object of loosing weight you will probably gain weight.

Thumbs Up Re: Smoking weed makes you lose weight?

I smoke weed every day and am in great shape & health. I do gym three times a week like clockwork though and only smoke in the evening when I'm finished for the day... so I wouldn't say weed made me skinny, but it certainly didn't make me fat and lazy.

If you use it right, it can help. It does have some metabolic boosting power.

The key is to not eat while high. Not only is the high longer, and more productive, but you don't gain weight.

I highly recommend not using cannabis as a daily safe medecine for weight control. Over long periods of time, there is some evidence that it can interfere with normal appetite functions. While I, personally, believe this is psychologically entrenche, and based on people who eat while high everyday/every-meal, it may be a safe route to not use it.

Again, my beliefs are that it can help, if you don't always smoke to eat, everyday.

During my last summer i got into weed a little bit. Smoked about half ounce to an ounce a week, i actually lost a bit of weight over the summer, probably from biking to my buds to pick up and smoke but yeah i lost a bit of weight but downside was is that i felt like shit though. I always woke up at 2 or 3 pm. work at 5 then rinse and repeat all summer. Probably muscle loss but i dunno.

This thread is full of stupid generalizations and no scientific back-up. I'd love to see someone give me some research articles.

Oh wait, that might take some effort, or it might change the way you think about weed! Sorry guys, go smoke your bullshit and live in fantasy land. Or take responsibility for YOUR own actions and don't attribute everything towards smoking weed.

I didn't have to quit, but when I'm not high I totally know what you're talking about. I just am not hungry and when I do eat I only eat small amounts. But when I'm high everything is just so good. Lol cereal isn't too good for the munchies though cuz if you eat a whole box you'll poop green.
When I have the munchies though, I will clean out my fridge regardless of what's in there... Chinese takeout, potato salad, pasta salad, BBQ, chips, BBQ chips, Burgers, steak, pasta, lasagna, pizza, burritos, anything and everything I just absolutely eat as fast as I can. Fruit is probably the BEST munchie food ever though. Especially blueberries, persimmons(BEST!), strawberries, cantaloupe, yeah you get the picture. If you've never had persimmons I'm sorry for you! I never see them in the grocery store, but I've got a few of the trees. to put in perspective of how good they are, I'd rather eat them than oranges when I'm high, and oranges are AMAZING.

Weed doesn't make me very hungry at all.

When I'm not smoking and get bored, I usually grab a snack/small meal and watch some TV. When I am smoking, I don't get bored, so I don't eat unnecessary food.

I may have lost a little weight, now that I think about it.

How is what we make it out to be "magical"?

You smoke it, it gets you high. Sometimes it makes you hungry, so it could make you gain weight. That's not magical.

THC slows the metabolism and tells the body to store more of the energy that's consumed as fat. THCV does the opposite and counteracts the effects of THC, which is why they're considering using it to treat obesity and diabetes. Certain strains can make you lose weight, but these are rare. I posted a shitload of information and articles of scientific research on this subject on totse. Unfortunately jeff hunter was a cunt and didn't realize some of those topics were actually useful.

This. I'm NEVER hungry unless I'm high. Like, my body'll feel hungry, but I dont feel like eating. I've been a daily smoker for almost a year now. (with another half year before a long break)

GW pharmaceuticals has developed a strain high in THCV.

Also watch "Super high me" and see what happens when he stops smoking weed. If you exercise enough you won't have to worry about it though. A lot of pro athletes are potheads.

I wouldn't say I gain weight when I smoke a lot. However, I lose weight when I take a break.

The reason? When I smoke everyday, I eventually learn how to suppress the munchies. But, after I quit, my self-induced appetite suppression goes into overdrive, and I find myself with little to no appetite. It's purely psychological in my case.

It doesn't make them lose weight.

Stoners are thin because of their lifestyle. They don't lift weights, they don't play football, etc.

smoking weed will make you skinny if your body is already inclined that way. For me, this is only due to a lifestyle thing. When I used to smoke alot i would often not get up till lunchtime, then just eat random crap all day, thinking back I would probably be lucky to get 50g of protein in a day, which probably means your gonna be losing muscle, even if you gain fat from all the pizza or whatever your eating.

The way to maintain a healthy weight is to eat a regular, varied and balanced diet, which is not normally condusive to smoking alot of weed, although doubtless it could be done.

Smile Re: Smoking weed makes you lose weight?

I was just wondering what people have to say about this, if you smoke weed and you get the munchies but do not eat (learn to suppress the hungry feeling), then will or could you loose weight? If the THC makes you hungry wouldn't it be just like any other drug perscription or non, and you body would actually think that you are hungry so if you don't eat then it will take the stored fat and nutrients out of your system and you would then in turn loose weight, just like the way you would loose weight by not eating so much daily even if you didn't smoke weed. I mean still eating your regular meals, just not eating when you smoke weed and feel hungry ya know. Any comments welcome please!

I don't get the munchies too often and when I do I go for easy things like popcorn or a spoonfuls of peanut butter from a jar. I wish there were some drug that made you inclined to eat healthy food.

Just have better food around. Trust me, there's nothing better than a golden delicious apple while stoned out of your mind.

I always eat somewhat healthy food when I'm stoned. I will most of the time eat before I smoke so that I'm held over and munching out won't take my high away. Or, I'll at least try to have something about ready.. So that I don't take the easy way out and eat whatever strange concoction I think is tasty at the time.

I eat alot and smoke.. alot.. but my weight doesn't fluctuate much.. I also take creatine and protein supplements, so if I gain weight, it's the muscle I'm packing on when I lift.

When I smoked weed for 3 years straight everyday, I was eating fast food, deep fried shit, kfc n the like and never got overweight. Infact i was UNDERWEIGHT if anything.

I stopped like 2 months ago, eat a really healthy diet, no fast food and shit but I am getting a bit chubby. Should really do exercise.

So yes, marijuana for one reason or another does make you keep your weight down, not sure if it makes you lose it though

It's not the weed, just my horrible eating habits.

I took 2-3months out of my gym and gained 20lbs, now I've lost 5-10lbs of it, but I've gotta get back down to 145lbs... still sitting at 152 or so... it sucks, gotta eat healthier and the munchies don't help!
