5 Cannabis Strains That Won’t Give You The Munchies

One of the most well-documented effects of consuming cannabis is the munchies. We’re all familiar with that insatiable urge to devour a whole pizza, eat food good for two… basically putting anything in your mouth feels good when you’ve got a case of the munchies. This effect is so common that a movie, Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle, was even made about it!

This is why many have the misconception that being a pothead equates to being fat and lazy. The truth is that there are several “skinny” marijuana strains that won’t give you the munchies. Some people have even been able to successfully integrate cannabis into their weight-loss regimen! Certain strains won’t give you the munchies because they contain a cannabinoid that can effectively suppress hunger. Called THC-V (tetrahydrocannabivarin), this cannabinoid can curb your appetite while giving you that wonderful psychedelic high that we all love. THC-V can also reduce anxiety. High CBD strains also help curb the munchies; a recent Yale study found that THC stimulates a bunch of nerve cells in the brain’s hypothalamus, the area that is responsible for governing hunger as well as arousal. While little is known about CBD’s impact on appetite, we do know that it counteracts many of the effects of THC.

Before you reach for that pack of Doritos, read up on this list of 5 strains that won’t give you the munchies.

  • Skunk #1 is a famous skunk #1 hybrid variety that was developed in the 80’s, which contains THC-V.

Skunk #1 is a favorite of patients as well as growers and recreational users. It gives you a skunky yet super sweet and delicious toke. Skunk #1 is ideal for patients who need help with inflammation and insomnia, as well as pain, anxiety, and depression. Prevent the midnight munchies by using Skunk #1 before you go to sleep.
  • Durban Poison has floral notes and an amazing flavor. The flowers of Durban Poison have a heavenly aroma, although it’s a popular choice for concentrates due to its large resin glands.
