The Best Cannabis Strains For Appetite Stimulation

Responsive image


Cannabis has gained a lot of popularity in the past two years. More and more states are now legalizing cannabis – some are legalizing it both recreational and medical use, while some are legalizing only medical cannabis. Cannabis can help you in dealing with various medical conditions and symptoms associated with them. It can help in managing inflammation, chronic pain, insomnia, and can even help in the stimulation of appetite. If you suffer from a condition that qualifies for a medical marijuana card, you can buy medical cannabis after getting this recommendation card. A marijuana doctor can provide you this card after evaluating your condition. Also, with a medical marijuana grower license, you can even grow your medical cannabis at your own house.

Now, almost every cannabis user has experienced this magical herb’s ability to cause a rampant and raging appetite. This is widely known as the “munchies”. This will make you run to your fridge and look for something to eat. This is the time you realize that you should keep some food for emergencies like this when you are craving for something to eat. This “urge to eat” something is caused by THC present in cannabis. THC is the compound that is responsible for the psychoactive effects associated with cannabis.

When you smoke or consume cannabis orally, THC starts to interact with the endocannabinoid system of your body. It is a series of receptors throughout your body. This endocannabinoid system plays many roles, and one of those roles is to control energy homeostasis, which influences the central nervous system’s food intake centers. And this is why THC can influence the signaling of this system. The two main receptors of the endocannabinoid system are CB1 and CB2. THC activates CB1 receptors, this way hormones that are responsible for the promotion of the sensation of hunger are released. One of the benefits of this side effect of THC is that it will make you like the taste of food even more. This becomes very helpful for people suffering from the loss of appetite. There are many cannabis strains that have the ability to stimulate the appetite. So, here is a list of some of such top quality strains.

1. Royal Cookies

Royal Cookies is an Indica dominant cannabis strain with 80 percent Indica genetics and 20 percent Sativa genetics. It contains high levels of THC that can reach up to 23 percent, which leads to an instantaneously stoning high. It offers an uplifting, euphoric sensation and can put you in a good mood, and later helps you fall asleep.

Once THC enters your system, you will start feeling the munchies, a ravenous appetite that will last as long as you are high. Royal Cookies also has flavors of sweetness and earth that further helps in inducing some hunger pangs. You can grow this cannabis strain both in outdoor and indoor environments.

2. Pineapple Kush

Pineapple Kush is again an Indica dominant strain, which sticks to the fruity theme. It is produced by crossbreeding OG Kush and Pineapple. It is a very potent strain that comes with a fruity flavor, making it a great choice to induce your appetite. Due to its Indica dominant nature, Pineapple Kush offers psychoactive effects that will leave your body as if it is resting comfortably in a blanket. It can help in dealing with mental stress and tension and make you feel optimistic and serene.

You can easily grow Pineapple Kush in a mild environment, and it produces buds that contain high levels of THC (around 18 percent). When growing indoors, the plant can grow up to a height of 120 cm, which makes it easy to grow a single plant even if you have a small grow room.

3. Haze Berry

Haze Berry is very popular in California because of its intensely stimulating Sativa high that can do wonders when it comes to ramping up the appetite. This Sativa dominant cannabis strain is produced by mixing Blueberry and Shining Silver Haze, giving it 80 percent Sativa genetics. You will feel motivated and productive along with the stoning high that will keep your body grounded. Haze Berry contains high levels of THC that can reach up to 20 percent, so you need to take care of your dose while consuming it. And the medium levels of CBD makes you feel a chill while you are high. It has a flavor of sweet berries.

Haze Berry can grow well both in indoor and outdoor environments. The height of indoor plants remains around 60-100 cm. So, you can also keep your privacy while growing them.

4. Sour Diesel

Sour Diesel is undoubtedly one of the most popular cannabis strains that are produced by mixing Original Diesel, Shiva, Northern Lights, and Hawaiian. This Sativa dominant strain contains high levels of THC that can reach up to 19 percent that offers a very potent and cognitive high, still keeping your mind clear and boosting your creativity. Also known as Sour D, it comes with a sour, fuel-like, and herbal flavor, which makes it very unique. This will make you crave for food, especially sweet foods after consuming this strain.

And if you are looking to grow indoors, Sour D will not disappoint you and can take about 10-11 weeks to grow relatively lengthy flowers.

5. OG Kush

Everyone has heard this name, OG Kush is probably the most famous cannabis strain ever. This game-changing cannabis strain was first produced in Northern California. However, the origin story of this strain is still a mystery and is in debate for a long time. OG Kush is an Indica beast that comes from parent strains Lemon Thai, Chemdawg, and Pakistani Kush.

It is known for providing a stunning Indica high that can leave you immobilized while inducing a massive appetite. It has the power to make you couch-locked, so be careful while using this one. OG Kush comes with pleasant flavors of pine, citrus, and fruit, and offers deeply restorative high. You can get moderate yields in just 7 to 9 weeks of the flowering phase. And indoor plants can grow up to 160 cm in height.

Final Thoughts

Every strain is different and offers different effects, so it’s better for you to be patient and start with slow doses. Also, every individual has a different reaction to every strain, so try different strains and see which one works best for you.
