I sometimes think that the idea of "munchies" was made up.

It has never made me want to eat anything that I didn't want before. I actually eat less because of it. And healthier.

Lot of my smoker friends don't even eat at all.

Is there even a chemical reason WHY you would get the munchies?

Just seems like a fabrication by snack companies. Kinda like they do for Halloween and Easter....


Maybe it's just in my head. :P

it stimulates your hypothalamus (where appetite is regulated) because there are a lot of endocannabinoids/receptors there

It's not, the majority of people get hungry when they get really baked.

If you're smoking enough on a regular basis that's just called having a tolerance, yea the munchies can be one of the aspects you lose.

You must not be smoking the same stuff as the rest of us! because there are those days when I'm high and I can go through a 3 person meal without even being full. :)

I never get munchies really either. I like to eat when im high only because of the taste of the food and the texture too. Otherwise im never really hungry.

I get munchies bad. I will start going through the kitchen and eat until there's nothing left.

I don't get the munchies anymore because of my high tolerance but it definitely stimulates my appetite if I haven't eaten much that day.

in your opinion it's a placebo effect* you cant straight say that it is a placebo effect without any justification. just because you dont get the munchies, does not mean it is a placebo effect

My theory is weed doesn't make you hungry, just more observant to the fact that everything will taste better high. As a result, you subconsciously develop hunger(munchies).
