Every pothead knows cannabis as the product responsible for piles of sandwiches, lazy weekends on the sofa, and late-night trips to McDrive. So, why do most marijuana consumers not suffer from obesity? Researchers found that certain weed strains are able to prevent weight gain.
It seems like we have discovered a new solution to obesity. A recent study suggests marijuana as one of the ingredients of a weight-loss medicine—a mixture of cannabis components and vitamin A. Researchers assert that vitamin A and particular compounds of weed can work together to reduce the deposit of lipids. It is refreshing to see cannabis-based medicine developed in the world overwhelmed with bad and sometimes flat-out weird diets and nutrition plans.
Another research showed that marijuana consumption was also associated with a better carbohydrate metabolism as cannabinoids interact with insulin. The association between cannabis use and lower risk of obesity remain strong even after including other factors that influence health and weight—gender, age, cigarette smoking, and so on.
The tricky thing is that although cannabis lovers consume nearly 600 more calories per day, they metabolize food better. Of course, it does not mean that marijuana consumers can eat more, move less, and remain skinny. Consuming extra calories without burning them off is not likely to promote weight loss, no matter how ardent a pothead you are.

Stemming from two sativa-dominant cannabis strains (Lemon Skunk and Silver Haze), Lemon Haze has long become classic for its strong lemon scent and ability to make consumers happy.
