Munchies On CBD?
A good deal of may have questions about CBD and hunger.
- Is it like THC?
- Does this give you the munchies?
No this is not the case with CBD you, in fact, will not get the munchies from CBD, but THC, on the other hand, will indeed make you eat your whole kitchen-not even no it.
CBD reduces appetite and will by blocking the CB1 and CB2 receptors that are held in you’re brain lacking psychotropic action of THC which means it does the opposite of CBD.
THC reacts differently with these receptors the actually stimulates the receptors making an individual hungry and have the munchies.
Properties of CBD at the CB1 antagonist, Rimonabant, reduces the desire to eat shutting off the receptor CB1 to make you not hungry in humans.
If you’re digestive track connecting to receptors telling you I’m hungry CB2 receptors are responsible for a decrease in inflammation as also food intake.
Hunger & Appetite
Does CBD Oil Make You Hungry?
According to the Canadian Society of intestinal research ” Hunger is Physiological”, hunger is when you’re body needs food to survive, nutrients, proteins, and fats.
Two hormones that let your body know you’re hungry are Ghrelin, and Leptin, many other hormones interact with hunger and appetite Insulin and cortisol.
When you’re blood sugar goes low and when you have not eaten for a while you’re body produces ghrelin which makes your hungry sensation. Ghrelin is at the highest just right before you get to eat, and your stomach is empty and aching, your mouth starts to salivate.
Then as you are getting full and you’re body has had enough your’re fat cells generate leptin that interacts with your brain saying it has had enough calories.
Being hungry can have demands for nutrients to your body functions, waiting to maintain energy levels is big for out the day, appetite is rather a desire to eat, a glamorous thought.
So, when your bored, upset, stressed, sad, or even around food that you love the smells from foods you know, can make you work up an appetite. Being depressed, sad, angry can make your appetite disappear even if you’re hungry.
This can work both ways to make you hungry, and make your hunger suppressed.
Appetite is a craving, hunger is a need.
So, hunger is a need for nutrients and proteins for the body to absorb, While appetite is a desire to eat or could be that you eat at the same time every day let’s say at 1 pm, and 2 pm, 4 pm. And this makes you have an appetite even if you’re not hungry this is a routine and not a sign of hunger.
With CBD this will not make you hungry but rather suppress your hunger by turning off the CB1 receptor in the brain.
9 Reasons to be hungry
If you happen to work out and take CBD and after this can make you hungry setting off the ghrelin in you’re gut which makes you hungry forcing you to eat. You should eat after working out anyway but this could increase your appetite if you make it routine.
If you have not eaten all day and you say you’re hungry, this is because you’re lacking the nutrients you need to survive and get through the day. But if you vape CBD, then you will not instantly get hungry as you would with THC a none compound in the marijuana female plant.
CBD more represses and takes your hunger away researches are starting to find out that this could show promising effects for losing weight.
CBD can be of many uses to you and you’re intake and depression, ADHD, chronic pain, but does not make you crave food or even make you hungry.
Other activities may activate you’re hunger hormones or stimulate your receptors of being hungry, CBD will do the opposite turning off receptors in your brain.

To recap what we have discussed as far as hunger goes safe to say that if you were to ingest CBD I would in fact not give you the munchies or increase hunger. Appetite is a desire to eat a meal rather than needing to eat, While hunger is a need for nutrients, fats, and proteins that stem from the body’s digestive system.
The digestive track system is connected to you’re brain and the receptors telling you if you’re hungry or not but you can smell food that smells good but not be hungry.
This is a need from you’re body and you must eat, learned ways to suppress your hunger by using CBD products, but you can eat foods that have CBD in them and still eat.
As well as eating certain foods such as avocados, eggs, vegetables, fruits just some ways with food to decrease you’re appetite and hunger.
If you can eat food that you don’t particularly like but still would eat, if you eat this and liked it then you’re hungry. But if you eat if food and are not hungry then this is appetite.
Ways to increase your hunger, workout more for eating certain foods to with more calories, you can schedule meals so you eat more even if you’re not hungry. Then this way you’re brain will get used to it, tricking it, making you think you have to eat at the same time every day this will become the norm.
These can be built-in with your behavior that is done every day if you desire to eat more to increase your appetite.

Hi Mathew & Deloris,
Well I certainly remember the munchies when I used to smoke marijuana many, many years ago.
In fact, my “appetite” was insatiable at times, and it’s difficult to imagine that I could actually eat that much.
I’d always assumed that this was down to the THC more than anything, so it’s nice to have that confirmed.
I’m glad you’ve also cleared up any ambiguity around CBD and hunger, and I had the feeling the answer was going to be No.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe CBD oil is often recommended to people who want to lose weight, as it can act as an appetite suppressant.
I am more than familiar with both ghrelin and leptin, and their workings on both the brain and the body.
So, what you’ve spoken about here makes perfect sense to me.
Once again thanks for sharing your thoughts with us they are always insightful with what we have discussed on the topic of does CBD make you hungry, and the two hormones that are responsible for hunger. (Ghrelin, and leptin).
And yes, CBD is known as a weight-loss preventative that suppresses your appetite if you were to ingest your appetite and ways to increase your hunger if that’s what you choose.
we hope to hear from you soon again thanks for the chat.
I didn’t know that CBD was used for weight loss. This is great news for many people who have failed when trying to lose weight through dieting.
CBD is a much easier alternative than having to count calories or restrict all of our favorite foods.
You are so right in saying when we eat at regular times every day, it just becomes a habit. We are not eating because we are hungry, but because our mind is programmed to eat at certain times. This is not good for us and can lead to unwanted weight gains.
Thanks for sharing this information.
We like to thank you for stopping in and sharing your thoughts with us, CBD is an alternative to weight loss if you use it the right way no counting calories. Very true about us being programmed to eat at certain times if we tend to eat at 1, or 2 pm every day at the same time, this could be good and bad.
We think that this is good to use for other reasons such as pain and a mixture of PTSD, ADHD, and other disorders that others may experience such as seizures.
Hey guys, thanks for sharing another awesome article.
I’ve had no idea that CBD actually blocks the CB1 and CB2 receptors and reduces hunger. For some reason, I thought CBD has the same effect as THC.
Anyone who has ever smoked weed has experienced uncontrollable munchies, which just proves the fact that THC triggers these receptors and increases the desire to eat even when you’re not hungry.
Once again, thanks! I’ve learned a LOT fro your post and will come back again to read more from your blog. Keep up the good work!
Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us and making the note that CB1 and CB2 receptors are turned off when you use or ingest CBD products and THC is responsible for the munchies.
We do hope that others find this article as informational as you did and find the real meaning in what CBD can do for others and the way they live and manage their life.
This has improved our way of maintaining our weight when workout and improved our recovery of tears and rips of the muscles when you workout.
Thanks again for stopping by and sharing your thoughts with us about Does CBD make you hungry?
Thank you for all this great info on CBD! I always wondered if CBD oil makes you hungry. Where does the Savage CBD ship from?
We like to thank you for stopping in and sharing your thoughts with us and Savage CBD ships from the U.S is this what you mean or do you mean what states.
If so, then all the states except Nebraska and Idaho do not allow CBD unless 0.% THC, But according to
these states can not have CBD in Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, and Texas restricted.
Hope this has answered your question if not let us know.
Thid was an interesting read. I am not so familiar with CBD, but I hear that a lot of people talk about it. I am glad that I came across your article that gave me more clarity.
We like to thank you for coming in and sharing your thoughts with us and there are a lot more great articles to come.
I’ve never tried CBD oil and never realised it can help suppress appetite. I’ve never needed to lose weight but do have certain times in the day when I have snacks. Though I don’t actually feel hungry I definitely have an appetite! Thank you sharing this very interesting post:)
We like to thank you for stopping in and sharing your thoughts with us, indeed CBD will curb your appetite for sure and this does help individuals lose weight if they desire.
But this is a suppressant for your hunger if you use CBD faithfully and we eat at certain times so our mind is tricked into thinking that we are hungry so that’s how I eat while I use CBD products vaping.
