4 Tips For Managing the Munchies
Getting the munchies can be a good or bad thing for medical marijuana patients. Each patient has a different way of managing eating habits while high. Some patients use medical marijuana to stimulate appetite, as certain medical treatments or conditions cause side effects like nausea, loss of appetite and weight loss.
However, if you are a patient who is trying to stop overeating, here are some tips and tricks to help you manage your munchies!
1. Eat Before Medicating
It's important that you have a good meal routine established prior to using medical marijuana. This will make you less likely to overindulge after medicating.
2. Stay Busy
It is easy to fixate on anything and everything when medicating. If you find yourself in a food trance, try focusing your attention to something else. Go on a short walk, listen to music or turn on the TV!
3. Brush Your Teeth
Did you know that brushing your teeth can help curb the munchies? Brushing your teeth will rid the taste from your mouth and leave you feeling fresh. It will also help you avoid overindulging in snacks by taste. For example, think about drinking a glass of orange juice after brushing your teeth. It tastes horrible! The same for almost any munchie found in your pantry.
4. Try Something Different
Having the munchies directly correlates with the products/strains you are using. The next time you visit the dispensary, consult with your budtender about trying a different strain with more CBD or THCV to help reduce this side effect.
As you can see, there are several ways patients can manage their cravings associated with cannabis treatment. Alternatively, if you can’t beat the munchies, make them work for you! Stock up on healthier alternatives next time you are at the grocery store, and pinterest until your heart's content. It’s all about making it work for you!
