Will CBD increase your appetite? 

You may know that smoking cannabis can cause extreme hunger, or ‘the munchies’. This is the sort of hunger where you go on a rampage for everything sweet and salty in the cupboard. Not ideal if you are watching your weight! As CBD comes from the cannabis plant, you may be wondering - will CBD give me the munchies? We are going to tell you exactly why it should not. 

Why do you get the munchies?

THC is the other well-known cannabinoid found in cannabis. This is the psychoactive part of the plant which can cause hallucinations, confusion and the giggles. THC also increases the sense of smell and taste. This may make you more inclined to eat those feel-good foods.

Will CBD give me the munchies?

CBD contains less than 0.2% THC, if any. This is very low and as a result, will not give you any psychoactive effects. It also won’t be enough to give you the munchies. Some CBD doesn’t contain any THC, this is called isolate. Whereas others are full-spectrum and have a small amount. This is just due to the way in which it is extracted from the plant. 

Can I smoke CBD?

You certainly can smoke CBD using prerolls or CBD flowers. With the flowers, you will need rolling skills and thin papers. You then roll the ground flowers into a tobacco-free cigarette. If you are not comfortable smoking CBD then you can look at vaping, using oil drops or edibles, such as gummies or capsules.

Will smoking CBD give me the munchies?

No. However you take your CBD it shouldn’t give you the munchies. If you do feel that it increases your appetite, ask yourself if it is definitely the CBD, or if it is because you have eaten less. 

The only way it may give you the munchies is because those brownies you infused with already vaped bud are so damn delicious! Just watch how many you are eating! Find the video recipe for CBD Brownies below
