Strains for Weight Loss: Lose Weight Using Cannabis

Updated: May 9, 2019

Did it ever occur to you that you can lose weight with cannabis? Well, you can! Even though you usually have munchies after smoking, there are strains for weight loss with special terpenes or cannabinoids that have the opposite effect and can be used to treat obesity.

Think about the last time you were hungry but decided to smoke one and after it, you no longer felt the desire to eat.

Recent studies even show that:

  • long-term cannabis users are in general less likely to be obese,
  • that daily smokers have lower BMI readings than non-smokers,
  • that cannabis users have lower blood glucose, etc.

However, more research still needs to be done to understand this correlation. Nevertheless, there are enough proofs that strains with a high level of compound THCV or tetrahydrocannabivarin are responsible for suppressing appetite and can be therefore used to treat obesity. So let us take a look at some of those strains.

1. Blue Dream

Blue Dream is a Sativa-dominant strain, made from crossing Haze Sativa and Blueberry Indica, so it combines the benefits of them both. On one hand, it helps suppress appetite and on the other, it keeps you ready for action. Perfect combination if you wish to lose weight.

2. Harlequin

Harlequin is a Sativa strain with high CBD level (CBD:THC ratio of 5:2) and therefore, perfect to choose for treating obesity since you most likely won’t feel munchies after it. On top of that, because of its uplifting effect, you can use it before doing exercise.

Harlequin is also a to-go-to strain if you're suffering from migraines and headaches

Before, inbetween and after...

I am not going to tell you when to eat them, I am just saying you could give them a try.

3. Cannatonic

Cannatonic is yet another strain for weight loss. It’s a hybrid strain with high CBD and low THC content that, similarly to Harlequin, keeps you active and is a helpful appetite suppressant.

4. Green Crack

There are two varieties of Green Crack – Sativa and Indica. To treat obesity, use the Sativa one since it gives you an immediate boosting mental and physical buzz. Choosing the wrong one will have the opposite effect. Meaning, you’ll end up laying on the couch, eating everything that comes near you.

Also, use Green Crack if you're in any sort of pain.

5. Cherry Pie

We saved the best for the last – Cherry Pie! It’s an Indica-dominant strain with an amazing flavor that instantly suppresses your appetite. Because of its properties, it’s been commonly used in alternative weight loss programs that include medical marijuana.

Of course, you won’t become skinny by smoking a bunch of joints out strains for weight loss. There’s just no easy way how to lose weight. However, mentioned cannabis strains can help you suppress the appetite and set into the right mood for exercise, which is quite welcoming when trying to lose pounds. On top of that, some cannabis strains also reduce inflammation and help with regeneration after exercise which at the end also helps lose weight and has a positive effect on the health in general.
