How do you unwind? A glass of wine? Up to 300 calories:

Cannabis has no calories.

I’m going to investigate medical cannabis when there are dispensaries near my area.

It’s legal here, and honestly, my friends who have been using/smoking it for years, in large quantities, are thin, active, and have very high metabolisms. (Note: these are highly functioning, professional individuals, so I wish we could dispense with the out-dated notion that marijuana users are lazy, fat, over-eating couch surfers.) When I began to smoke it occasionally, I promised myself I would only do so at night, right before bed, so I wouldn’t be prone to eat. It increases heart rate and blood pressure, hence, yes, it increases metabolism. Once I acclimated a bit, I actually began to use it a little bit prior to working out at home, as well – only advisable with Sativa strains, which are stimulating, versus Indica, which are calming.
The stereotypical munchies come with certain strains, but with the wide variety of hybrids these days, you can figure out which ones make you hungry and which ones just give you the calm without the desire to overeat.
I have found the Indica to be helpful at night, to stave off sugar cravings, during a reduced-carbohydrate diet.

Just my two cents.

The fat cells of the abdomen have receptors called "cannabinoid receptors" that increase their storage of fat when activated. They are named, obviously, because cannabis activates them. They are also activated by alcohol consumption, which explains the famous "beer belly."

Fat cells are activated to store fat in different areas of the body by different chemicals. Cf- estrogen makes fat accumulate on the chest and thighs.

One gets the munchies from dope because the cannabinoids stimulate those belly fat cells and they’re calling for more raw material to build fat.

I don’t know the details of the modern genetic strains. They may have bred plants that don’t give you the munchies anymore.

I do know that many people with sleep apnea are also overweight (classic Pickwickian Syndrome), and that treatment of the breathing (and sleep) problem also may result in weight loss, so weight loss with cannabis may result from improved sleep and not from a direct effect of the weed.

I’ve heard some of the effects of indica are not from the THC itself but rather the terpenes the strain has versus the ones sativa doesn’t have. I’m not sure the experts are even 100% sure.. all I know is that if I vape indica it feels more like a sativa so clearly some compounds aren’t being vaporized in the process.

For me marijuana in and of itself doesn’t cause me to gain weight in any particular area.. thanks to cutting lately I likely have the best body composition of my life so far, though I still have more fat on me than I’d like and plan to cut more after a bit of weight training for the next few weeks.

Actually I think some of the compounds are lost during the extraction process. This makes more sense. When you extract, you remove certain compounds, maybe not intentionally but it happens just the same. This applies to all types of extractions not just cannabis.

THC and CBD are not made by the plant itself apparently but made by "activating" other compounds.
