Best Cannabis Strains For Appetite Stimulation

Cannabis Munchies

Lack of appetite can be a severe side effect that comes with a number of health issues. Not only can it be very dangerous for the body, but it can negatively affect daily life. It can mess with energy, strength, focus and motivation as well as causing severe pain and nausea. Excessive weight loss can be extremely dangerous, and of course, loss of nutrition can lead to other severe issues down the line. For some who are suffering from loss of appetite as a side effect from chemo or other treatments, regaining appetite is not only vital but just aids with overall comfort. Whatever the reason, one of the best appetite aids around is cannabis. Most of us know that from the phenomenon known as the munchies. These strains are also perfect for those who just want to add a little extra enjoyment to their meal.

This strain is a combination of Afghani Skunk and Big Bud. It is best known for its amazing yields but is also a fantastic medical strain. It is an Indica/Sativa hybrid that has a powerful, relaxing and physical effect along with a side of the munchies. Because it is so comfortable it is a great strain for those who are suffering from lack of appetite as a side effect of an illness or treatment. It simultaneously works as a painkiller and an appetite stimulant. Medicinal users should be careful though, as the soporific nature is strong and it may cause them to fall asleep before they can eat much. The actual buds are extremely dense and covered in resin. It has a flowering time of 8 weeks and can be grown indoors, outdoors or in a greenhouse.

This is another Indica/Sativa hybrid that is calming and relaxing but also stimulates appetite. The effect is also long-lasting and is recommended for a variety of medicinal users. The CBD is quite high and the THC lower than average which means it won’t have a powerful mental effect, mostly a physical one. This strain not only stimulates appetite but reduces nausea, perfect for low appetite patients who are struggling with stomach issues. Gigabit is a perfect strain for first-time growers. The germination rate is extremely reliable and the plants are extremely forgiving. This strain has a flowering time of just 5 – 6 weeks and can be grown indoors outdoors or in a greenhouse.

However, it is also excellent for nausea and lack of appetite. She is a mix of Grandaddy Purple and Platinum Cookies. The result is a Sativa dominant strain that has an energetic and motivating yet relaxing effect. This means that she is a bit of an all in one strain, perfect for those suffering from other symptoms as well as loss of appetite. Though she is a good daytime strain her THC level is around 21%, so she is better for leisure time than being productive. She has a flowering time of 56 – 70 days and can be grown indoors, outdoors or in a greenhouse.

This strain is a combination of Pineapple and O.G. Kush, two excellent classic strains. Pineapple Kush is another excellent all-round medicinal strain. It is recommended for those suffering from insomnia, migraines, PMS, pain, ADHD and loss of appetite. The effect is extremely cerebral and soothing but there is also a relaxing physical effect. There is an uplifting aspect to the high as well that can help those who are struggling with stress, anxiety and depression.
