If you are struggling with eating enough in a day, outlined below are seven cannabis strains that will help boost your appetite.
Earlier this week we discussed how cannabis stimulates your appetite and gives you the munchies. To summarize, cannabis contains cannabinoids which are also found naturally in our bodies and affect our endocannabinoid system. This system controls our digestive system and that includes appetite!
If you are looking to increase your intake on food, we recommend trying these seven cannabis strains:
1. Girl Scout Cookies

Candyland is an award-winning cannabis strain. In 2012, Candyland won gold at the KushCon. This strain is a Sativa-dominant blend of Platinum GSC and Granddaddy Purple (parents). If you take a close look at the bud itself, you will notice the sugar-like trichomes coating the remarkably colorful bud—perfectly resembling Candyland! This strain has a THC reading of 19% and will give you a mild body high, leaving you creative and chatty. Candyland is another excellent option to get you munching!

Ah yes, the classic Pineapple Express, a well known and loved cannabis strain all around the world. Maybe the popular movie, The Pineapple Express starring Seth Rogan and James Franco had something to do with it? Nevertheless, this strain is a lovely hybrid from the parent strains Trainwreck and (of course) Hawaiian. With an average THC of 17%, this strain is perfect to give you an uplifting buzz all day long. You may expect it to have a pineapple scent, but oftentimes it smells like fresh apples and mangoes. Once you smoke it, you will slowly begin to feel hungry.

The last strain on this list is another Indica strain that will make you very relaxed and sleepy. Chemo is a mild strain, often found around 16% THC. There is a rumour that this strain was specifically created in the 70’s to help cancer patients through chemotherapy. This cannabis strain is an excellent go to for those suffering from appetite loss as well as nausea and sleeplessness.
