New comer always have many worries about CBD oils. Hungry is one of them. As people know THC can make you hungry, so people may also think CBD can make you hungry, since they were from similar plant: hemp and marijuana. Here we are to clear your doubts.

Why THC make you feel hungry?

When you’re stomach is empty, your body releases a hormone called ghrelin. This hormone sends a signal to your brain to alert you that it’s time to fill that belly. Once you start eating, and your stomach registers the refuelling, the hormone release turns off.

But when you use THC, this can increase the release of ghrelin and trigger the feeling of hunger even if your stomach isn’t empty. Hence, that craving for sweet or salty foods that has you raiding the cupboard.

What’s more, THC increases your body’s release of dopamine, the “feel good” chemical in your brain. So, as a result, eating becomes more pleasurable. It can even boost your sense of taste and smell. That’s why those stale Cheesies and week-old chocolate cake taste so much better when you’re high.

Does CBD Make You Hungry?

CBD can not make you hungry while THC do. Most of CBD oil doesn’t contain THC, even have, it will be very low potency, because legal CBD oil is under strict restrain with THC as low as 0.3%. It’s too low to make you have effects of THC.

However, CBD has the ability to increase your appetite by reducing some of the symptoms that could affect your hunger. Here’s how:
