Do THC Products From Strains Dispensary Contain Calories?
Great question. The answer depends on your preferred method of weed consumption. Anything that you eat or drink contains calories. This includes any THC-infused foods or beverages that you purchase and enjoy. Conveniently, our ready-made edible THC products include a nutrition label that you can consult for exact information. Additionally, our knowledgeable budtenders are also here to break down health benefits, calorie counts, and nutritional information related to any product that you may be interested in!
Smoking or vaping weed, on the contrary, doesn’t add enough calories to your diet to logically consider or count (1 or less according to some sources). At the same time, there’s evidence to suggest that smoking weed increases your metabolism–helping you to burn more calories when your body is at rest.
Curiously enough, a sufficient portion of the scientific community is curious about the energetic value of the plant. Preliminary studies based on hemp structure pinpointing pure marijuana calories show that raw cannabis itself probably contains about two calories for every gram. That’s about 203 calories for every 100 grams of weed that you eat or drink. This doesn’t include the calories that other ingredients in THC edibles or drinks may contain.
Understanding The Science Behind The Munchies
Some view weed’s natural ability to increase the hunger hormone ghrelin as a marijuana health benefit–especially in people who struggle with a low appetite for any number of reasons. This famous hunger-stimulating effect was coined long ago as what many THC veterans refer to as the munchies.
The munchies are the culmination of the increased ghrelin and dopamine production that THC prompts, making you hungrier and then happier upon eating. This can lead to overeating which, if sustained over time, can cause weight gain.
As always, Strains Dispensary advocates for marijuana safety and using the plant responsibly. It’s best to monitor your calorie intake to ensure you’re nourishing your body properly as often as possible, especially when you smoke or eat weed.
