Many individuals realize that marijuana expands your cravings in the wake of using the drug. In the first place, individuals know this will happen, but they do not know why this is happening. There is nothing in marijuana that actually makes you hungry. It just deceives you by making you believe that you are ravenous when your stomach really isn’t. For instance, you may be watching television and see a food commercial, this alone might make you hungry even though you aren’t.

Nothing experimentally happened or factor to make you hungry, but you feel hungry. In any case, there is a chemical in marijuana that triggers the part of the brain related to hunger cravings and goes about as though you are ravenous despite the fact that you are definitely not hungry.
