CBD, THC & APPETITE. As we all know by now, CBD helps anxiety. But how does it help appetite? For some people on chemotherapy, loss of appetite is one of the side effects. Or, for some, they are very anxious and anxiety can lead to loss of appetite. 🍀
THC is the winner here. That is why FULL SPECTRUM CBD is best (New Life CBD) because it contains THC. 🍀
"THC increases appetite by partially binding to and thus activating cannabinoid receptor type 1 (CB1). CB1 can be found in the following areas:
The basal ganglia, where it may enhance eating pleasure.
The limbic forebrain, where it may enhance food palatability.
The stomach and small intestine, which both regulate ghrelin (an appetite-stimulating hormone)
The hypothalamus and rhombencephalon, two sections of the brain that help regulate food intake.
By activating CB1, THC increases appetite through the following known mechanisms:
It may decrease your levels of peptide tyrosine tyrosine (PYY), thus increasing your levels of ghrelin, thus increasing your appetite.
It activates the mTOR (mammalian target of rapamycin) pathway, thus increasing your levels of ghrelin, thus increasing your appetite.
