Many people know that marijuana increases your hunger after using the drug. At first, people knew this happened but not the reason for it happening. There isn’t anything in marijuana that makes you hungry, it just tricks you into thinking you are hungry when you aren’t. For example, you turn on the television and see a commercial for delicious food at a restaurant. After watching the commercial for a few minutes or several food commercials in a row, you may now be hungry.

However, right before turning on the television, you weren’t. Nothing scientifically happened to make you hungry. However, there is a chemical in marijuana that triggers the part of the brain associated with hunger and acts as if you are hungry even though you are not.
