Nearly 35% of American adults are obese. Many of them have tried weight loss medications and other interventions with little success. This is where marijuana comes in. Medical marijuana has gained recognition in the past few years for its ability to effectively and safely treat different conditions. You’ve probably heard about how ravenous stoners get after smoking some weed. When you think of this, it’s hard to imagine that weed can also help you slim down.

What’s in the Marijuana Plant?

Marijuana contains compounds known as cannabinoids. These include CBD, THC, and THCV. THC is renowned for leaving users feeling high and hungrier. On its part, CBD is widely used for medicinal purposes. It doesn’t cause weight gain, and neither is it an appetite stimulant.

Individuals who use CBD oil alone shouldn’t worry about adding weight. CBD counteracts the effects of THC, thus suppressing the hunger sensation. Nonetheless, CBD doesn’t help much with weight loss when used alone. The THCV cannabinoid is the one that suppresses appetite, and therefore, helps you shed weight. It also helps with blood sugar regulation.

What Does Science Say?

Two national surveys conducted in 2011 established that although marijuana consumption stimulated appetite, users are less likely to be obese than non-users. When you use cannabis regularly, your body burns more calories and stores less fat. Even if you eat more, your metabolism will also get a boost.

clinical trial commissioned by the University of San Diego established that cannabis use reduces stress levels. It also helps users to get better and more restful sleep besides relieving chronic pain. Indeed, these are some of the things that help with weight loss. By using cannabis regularly, you’ll have the energy needed to embark and stick to a workout routine.

CBD and THC properties

Medicinal Properties of CBD and THC

Cannabis use has also been linked to the attainment of healthy weight. Users are likely to have a healthy BMI compared to non-users and the general population. Furthermore, cannabis use is associated with a lower fat percent mass.

Cannabis Use and Metabolism

Essential biological processes, including metabolism, are controlled by the endocannabinoid system. The system comprises receptors (CB1 and CB2), and two types of cannabinoids (phytocannabinoids and endocannabinoids). Phytocannabinoids are produced by the cannabis plant, while the body naturally produces endocannabinoids.

The coolest part of it is that both cannabinoids share similarities. Therefore, marijuana cannabinoids interact with your body’s endocannabinoid system to stimulate essential biological processes, including metabolism. THC binds with CB1 receptors, thus leaving you feeling hungrier. On the other hand, THCV is a CB2 and CB1 receptor antagonist, which blocks THC. This way, it prevents you from feeling high and hungry.

When your metabolic rate is high, you’ll lose weight irrespective of the amount of food you eat. Although THCV is also psychoactive, just like THC, it often takes effect much quicker. Also, the high that it gives you is short-lived compared to what you get from THC.

The Best Marijuana Strains for Weight Loss

Unlike what you might think, not all cannabis strains will help you shed weight. There are specific strains that help with obesity by increasing your metabolism and curbing your appetite for sugar, carbs, and saturated fat. The market is so awash with dozens of cannabis strains these days, and this makes it difficult to determine the ones that aid your weight-loss objectives. Here are the best marijuana strains for weight loss:

  • Durban Poison

This powerhouse strain is popular among those who want to shed weight. With THC levels of up to 24%, the Durban Poison strain leaves you mildly high and energized enough to undertake workouts and other fitness activities.

  • Blue Dream

This Sativa-dominant hybrid strain not only curbs your appetite but also boosts your focus and energy levels. Once it hits home, the Blue Dream marijuana strain keeps your mind off food.

  • Grapefruit

This is among the least-known cannabis strains. It packs 20% THC and is known for being an energy booster and stress-reliever. Grapefruit strain can help suppress depression and anxiety, which are among the leading causes of obesity.

Marijuana as hunger suppressant

How Does Marijuana Act As An Appetite Suppressant?

  • Northern Lights

Lack of sleep is a major cause of obesity. The Northern Lights cannabis strain turns off the lights and enables you to sleep deeper and for longer.

  • Cherry Pie                  

This Indica-dominant hybrid strain is known for its delicious taste, but it doesn’t give you the munchies. Cherry Pie helps with pain relief and appetite suppression. It perfectly supplements most weight loss programs.

Final Words

Now that you know how marijuana can help you shed weight, you should embark on weight loss treatment. Start by finding out whether medical marijuana is approved in your state before getting a recommendation letter from a marijuana doctor. The recommendation letter will allow you to purchase medical marijuana from dispensaries.

Montana prohibitionists ask Supreme Court to kick legalization off ballot

Trailing badly in the polls, Montana prohibitionists appeal to anti-legalization judges to bail them out.

Montana prohibitionists ask Supreme Court to kick legalization off ballot | Leafly











Loading…

With two weeks to go until Election Day, and with a marijuana legalization measure showing a 10-point lead in the polls, prohibitionists are making a last-ditch attempt to keep the initiative off the November ballot.

On Tuesday, Oct. 20, the organization Wrong for Montana filed a petition with the state Supreme Court to have Initiative 190 deemed void and removed from the ballot, even though the measure has already been deemed legally sufficient by the state’s attorney general’s office. Furthermore, thousands of Montanans have already cast their ballots by mail.

The anti-legalization group argues that the initiative is unconstitutional because it allocates tax revenue raised by the program for specific purposes. Proponents of the measure have demonstrated that the initiative merely proposes how to allocate the funds; the state Legislature would have the final say on how to distribute them.

Trying the ol’ Nebraska Hail-Mary

The lawsuit in Montana replicates a legal strategy successfully employed by Republican prohibitionists in Nebraska this year: If you can’t get the votes, try to get anti-legalization judges to undermine the voice of the people.

“Opposition campaigns have been spreading misinformation across Montana for weeks,” Pepper Petersen, spokesperson for New Approach Montana, said in a recent interview. “This lawsuit accusation, this announcement by the lawyers is just the latest chapter in their misinformation campaign. The people in Montana will see right through it as they continue to vote yes on CI-118 and I-190.”

“We all talked about where we would like to see the money go,” he added in a separate interview. “That’s what you do when you bring initiatives, but it’s up to the Legislature to make that decision.”

An aggressive anti-legalization campaign

Wrong for Montana was launched this September by Steve Zabawa, a Montana car salesman with a long history of opposing cannabis reform in the state. Vitriol against Zabawa is so widespread that a pro-cannabis Facebook group dedicated to boycotting his business has more than 5,000 active members.

Since launching the organization, Zabawa has tried a number of different strategies to attack the legalization initiative. Earlier this month, Wrong for Montana filed a complaint with the state’s Commissioner of Political Practices to require the North Fund, a mysterious 501(c)(4) that has given nearly $5 million to the legalization campaign, to disclose its donors.

Wizards and puppets

In a comment left on the page of a Montana Public Radio story about the donation, Zabawa himself wrote “Why would bring Big Marijuana, The Wizard behind the North Fund’s $4.7 million out of state money and wipe out our current marijuana 260 dispensaries and 38,000 green card holders? The wizard and his three puppets Pepper [Petersen], Dave [Lewis] and Ted [Dick] are selling Montanans out to out of state big money to line their pockets!”

Zabawa has additionally argued that the anticipated revenue generated by legal cannabis—an estimated $50 million annually once the program is up and running—is merely a “drop in the bucket.”

“If it was bringing in a billion dollars, OK maybe it’s worth it,” he told Montana Public Radio. “But when it only brings in one little drop into the bucket and you’re creating all these other ills, I don’t think it’s worth it.”

When you’re losing at the polls, file a lawsuit

Wrong for Montana’s lawsuit doesn’t seem to reflect the opinion of most Montanans: a poll released last week by Montana State University concluded that 49% of voters support legalization and 39% are opposed. 

In other words, only 1% of undecided voters need to support the measure for it to pass.

Tax revenue seen as a big plus

Legalization has found widespread support in part because of New Approach Montana’s proposed allocations of the revenue, which is estimated to total $236 million by 2026. The group recommends using half of it to support public lands and environmental restoration projects; the other half would be split equally between the state’s general fund, funding for municipalities that permit cannabis sales, veterans’ services, substance abuse treatment and care services for disabled and elderly Montanans. 

“For decades and decades the public lands and conservation communities have been trying to find places where we have established strings of revenue to fund our public lands,” Montana Conservation Voters Executive Director Aaron Murphy told the Missoulian earlier this month. “When this opportunity came along as a very smart and timely solution to that, these organizations saw all the same things and said, ‘Yeah, we’re going to get behind this.’”

Wasting $11,000 per arrest

This week’s lawsuit comes on the heels of a new study highlighting the absurdity of marijuana arrests in Montana: 99% of arrests involved non-violent offenders, indigenous Montanans were twice as likely to be arrested as their white peers, and Black Montanans were five times more likely to be arrested than white residents.

The study concluded that the state spends nearly $11,000 per arrest.

“It shows that Montana is wasting a lot of tax dollars,” said Petersen, “on something that should have never been illegal in the first place.”
