How does cannabis affect appetite?

Cannabis has a significant influence on appetite. One of its main cannabinoids, Delta 9 THC, is a known appetite-inducer and it can produce the “munchies” in many ways. 

  • The main reason why THC makes you feel hungry after consumption is its interaction with the body's endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS plays a crucial role in regulating many physiological functions, including appetite and digestion. When THC binds to and activates the CB1 cannabinoid receptors in the ECS, it triggers a series of reactions that ultimately lead to increased hunger, often referred to as "the munchies."
  • Another way THC stimulates appetite is by increasing the production of ghrelin. This hormone signals the brain that it's time to eat. One clinical trial demonstrated “significant alterations of the appetite hormones ghrelin, [peptide YY] and leptin in blood” from Delta 9 consumption. 
  • THC also interacts with the hypothalamus, a region of the brain that controls hunger and satiety, further promoting the desire to eat. Research published in Nature found that cannabis increased activity in distinct neuronal populations in the mediobasal hypothalamus (MBH) when mice anticipated or consumed food.
  • THC may also enhance the sensory experience of eating, making food taste and smell more appealing. A study published in Pharmacology Biochemistry and Behavior found that THC increases meal frequency and food-seeking behavior. 

The appetite-stimulating effects of cannabis are particularly beneficial for people who have lost their appetite because of medical conditions or treatments. For example, THC has been used to treat appetite issues associated with eating disorders, AIDS-related anorexia, and chemotherapy-induced appetite loss in cancer patients.

In addition to THC, other compounds in cannabis, such as cannabidiol (CBD), may also play a role in appetite regulation. While CBD does not stimulate appetite like THC, it may reduce nausea and vomiting, which can indirectly contribute to better food intake and overall nutrition.

The influence of cannabis on appetite is a complex interplay between compounds, individual physiology, and dosage. 

The effects of Buzz Drops™ on appetite

Buzz Drops™ provide a subtle and controlled cannabis experience. Each full dropper of Buzz Drops™ contains microdoses of THC and CBD, with 2.5mg of each cannabinoid. These low doses are unlikely to induce the intense "munchies" often associated with higher doses of THC.

When you stick to the recommended doses, Buzz Drops™ may gently stimulate appetite without causing overeating or significant weight gain. The presence of CBD in the formula helps to counteract some of the appetite-stimulating effects of THC, so you can have a balanced experience.

For those looking to use Buzz Drops™ to manage appetite-related issues, start with smaller amounts and monitor your body's response. As always, individual responses to cannabis vary, and some people may be more sensitive to the appetite-stimulating effects of THC, even at low doses. 

What factors influence your appetite?

Buzz Drops™ sometimes give you the munchies and other times they don't. Turns out, there are a handful of factors that can influence whether our low-dose cannabis drinks stimulate your appetite or not.

  1. THC content. Higher levels of THC are more likely to trigger the "munchies." If you overdo it with Buzz Drops™, you may be hungrier than you normally would.
  2. Individual metabolism. Every person's body processes cannabis differently. Some people may be more sensitive to the appetite-stimulating effects of THC because of their genetics, body composition, and overall health status.
  3. Dosage. The amount of Buzz Drops™ consumed can directly impact the likelihood of experiencing increased appetite. Larger doses may more strongly stimulate the receptors involved in hunger regulation, making you feel hungrier.
  4. Frequency of use. If you use Buzz Drops™ regularly, you may develop a tolerance to THC over time. This means that the appetite-stimulating effects may become less pronounced with frequent use, and you may require higher doses to achieve the same level of hunger.
  5. Time of day. Consuming Buzz Drops™ close to mealtimes, such as before lunch or dinner, may enhance their appetite-stimulating properties. Remember that THC can amplify the natural hunger signals your body sends when it's time to eat.
  6. Method of consumption. Some users consume Buzz Drops™ by placing them under the tongue and swallowing. This sublingual method allows for quicker absorption of THC and CBD into the bloodstream, potentially leading to a faster onset of appetite-stimulating effects than crafting a THC mocktail.
  7. Emotional state. Emotions play a significant role in appetite regulation. Stress, anxiety, or other emotional factors can either increase or decrease appetite, and consuming Buzz Drops™ may interact with these emotions in different ways for different people.
  8. Hydration. Staying hydrated while consuming Buzz Drops™ may help regulate appetite and reduce the likelihood of overeating. Dehydration can sometimes be mistaken for hunger, so maintaining proper hydration can help you better understand whether your increased appetite is because of the effects of THC or simply thirst.

The key to getting the most out of your Buzz Drops™ experience is to consume them responsibly and listen to your body. That way, you can enjoy all the benefits without any unwanted side effects.

Do Buzz Drops™ have side effects?

With Buzz Drops™, our precise, low-dose formulation of THC and CBD minimizes the risk of side effects when used as directed. If you consume more than the recommended dosage, you may encounter some unwanted effects, which can include:

  • Feeling drowsy or sedated
  • Experiencing dry mouth or "cottonmouth"
  • Having an increased appetite or "the munchies"
  • Feeling mild anxiety or paranoia
  • Experiencing dizziness or lightheadedness
  • Having slightly impaired coordination

When you follow the suggested serving size and consume them responsibly, you can reap the benefits of our liquid THC drops without potential side effects. 

Many of our customers use Buzz Drops™ as a healthier alternative to alcohol. Unlike alcohol, which can cause dehydration, inflammation, and other negative effects on the body, our low-dose cannabis drops provide a gentle buzz without the harsh side effects. With Buzz Drops™, you can enjoy social situations and relaxation while minimizing the potential risks associated with drinking.

“I was looking for something to help me stop drinking. I ordered your buzz drops. I have to admit I was skeptical. I made my first drink and felt amazing. I woke up the next day full of energy and rested. Since my first buzz drop drink I have had no desire to drink alcohol…”

Product QUIZ

Need help deciding what product is best for you? Take our quiz, just three questions until your perfect match!

Can I fail a drug test with Buzz Drops™?

While they contain a low dose of THC per serving (2.5mg), consuming Buzz Drops™ still carries the risk of failing a drug test. THC can remain detectable in your system for days to weeks. Even microdosing can lead to THC accumulation and increase the likelihood of a positive test result. 

If you are subject to drug testing or have an upcoming test, we suggest that you refrain from using any cannabis products, including our Buzz Drops™, to minimize the risk of a positive result. Always prioritize your responsibilities and obligations over using cannabis products. 

Are Buzz Drops™ legal?

Delta 9 is legal on a federal level, provided the products containing it are compliant with the 2018 Farm Bill. For Farm Bill compliance, a product must meet the following criteria:

  1. The THC must be derived from the hemp plant, not marijuana. 
  2. The product cannot contain more than 0.3% of Delta 9 THC by dry weight.

By following the Farm Bill’s criteria, we made our drinkable cannabis drops federally legal, so what are you waiting for? Order today and unlock a life of relaxation, relief, and euphoria.

Buzz Drops™ FAQ

Yes, Buzz Drops™ do expire. Like most cannabis-infused products, they have a shelf life and can lose potency and flavor over time. The active ingredients, such as THC and CBD, can degrade when exposed to light, heat, and air. 

To ensure the best experience and maintain product safety, always check the expiration date on the packaging and store your Buzz Drops™ in a cool, dark place away from direct sunlight. Proper storage helps to preserve the therapeutic effects and avoid any potential adverse effects from consuming expired products. If you notice any changes in color, aroma, or taste, it's best to discard the drops and purchase a fresh bottle.

Buzz Drops™ are safe when used responsibly and as directed. They are crafted using high-quality, natural ingredients and precise doses of THC and CBD extracted from the cannabis plant. The key ingredients are purified water, water-soluble THC extract, and water-soluble CBD extract. The cannabinoids are carefully balanced to provide a mild, enjoyable cannabis experience without the overwhelming psychoactive effects associated with higher doses.

If you’re new to cannabis, start with a low dose, monitor your body's response, and consult a healthcare professional if you have any concerns or underlying medical conditions.

Getting hungry when high, often referred to as "the munchies," is a common side effect of consuming cannabis. THC has potential psychoactive properties. It interacts with the endocannabinoid system and binds to the CB1 receptors in the brain. This interaction stimulates the release of hormones like ghrelin, which signals hunger. 

THC may also enhance the sensory experience of eating, making food taste and smell more appealing. The increase in appetite can be particularly pronounced with higher doses of THC, but even low-dose products may cause a slight increase in hunger when consumed. The effects on appetite are different from person to person, and many factors play a role in the intensity of the munchies.

Some strains are known for their potent "munchie" effects. Indica strains, in particular, tend to have a reputation for inducing strong feelings of hunger. Some popular indica strains that are often associated with increased appetite include:

  • Granddaddy Purple: known for its sweet, berry-like aroma and powerful relaxation effects, this strain is a go-to for those seeking a serious case of the munchies.
  • Northern Lights: this classic indica strain is renowned for its ability to stimulate appetite while delivering a blissful, relaxing high.
  • Bubba Kush: with its earthy, sweet flavor and potent body-relaxing effects, Bubba Kush is another strain that can kickstart your hunger.

Not all indicas will produce the same level of hunger. Some sativa or hybrid strains may also stimulate appetite. The best strain for inducing hunger will depend on your individual body chemistry and personal preferences.

The onset and intensity of the effects of edibles are influenced by several factors. One of them is whether you consume them on an empty or full stomach. If you consume edibles or cannabis beverages on an empty stomach, there is less food present to slow down the absorption of the active compounds into your bloodstream. This can lead to a quicker onset of effects, potentially within 10 to 20 minutes.

Consuming edibles on an empty stomach may also result in more intense effects, as there are no other foods to buffer the absorption of the cannabinoids. This can be particularly problematic if you consume a higher dose than intended, leading to potential adverse effects such as anxiety or paranoia.

To achieve a more predictable and controlled experience, consume edibles such as Buzz Drops™ with a small meal or snack. This approach can minimize the risk of intense or overwhelming effects while still allowing you to experience the desired therapeutic benefits or appetite stimulation.

Red eyes are a common side effect associated with smoking cannabis. The redness is caused by the dilation of blood vessels in the eyes, which is a result of the interaction between THC and the body's endocannabinoid system. THC is absorbed into the bloodstream through the digestive system and then circulated throughout the body, including to the eyes. THC can also lower blood pressure, causing the blood vessels in the eyes to expand and become more prominent, leading to the appearance of redness or bloodshot eyes.

While eye redness is a harmless side effect, it can be a telltale sign of cannabis consumption, which may be a concern for those who wish to keep their usage discreet. If you're worried about eye redness, you can try using eye drops. They can reduce redness, helping your eye stay hydrated. Also, stick to lower doses of THC to minimize the effect. 

If you find that edibles don't seem to affect you, there could be several reasons why. 

  1. One common factor is individual metabolism and body chemistry. Some people naturally have a higher tolerance to the effects of THC and may require larger doses to feel the desired effects.
  2. Another reason could be the quality and potency of the edibles you're consuming. Not all cannabis products are created equal, and some may contain lower levels of THC than advertised or may have been stored improperly, leading to a loss of potency. Always purchase edibles from a reputable source and look for products that have been third-party tested to ensure accurate dosing and quality.
  3. Consuming edibles on a full stomach can delay the onset and intensity of effects. When you eat an edible with a meal or shortly after eating, the presence of food in your digestive system can slow down the absorption of THC into your bloodstream. 
  4. It's also possible that you may be expecting a different type of experience than what edibles typically provide. Compared to smoking or vaping cannabis, the effects of edibles are more subtle and gradual, with a stronger body high than a cerebral buzz. If you're used to the immediate and intense effects of inhaled cannabis, the slower onset and different sensations of edibles may be less noticeable.

If you consistently find that edibles don't work for you, try different dosages, different products, or alternative consumption methods that may be more suitable for your needs and preferences. Start with a low dose and be patient, as the effects of edibles can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours to fully kick in.

For most beginners, a 5mg dose of an edible is a good starting point. This low dose is less likely to cause intense or overwhelming effects and allows you to gauge your individual tolerance and sensitivity to THC. The golden rule is to "start low and go slow." Consuming too high of a dose too quickly can lead to unpleasant side effects such as anxiety, paranoia, or impaired coordination, which can be especially concerning for those new to cannabis.

A 5mg dose minimizes the risk of these adverse effects. If needed, gradually increase your dosage. Wait at least 1–2 hours after consumption before you decide to take more—the effects of edibles can be delayed and long-lasting.
