Consuming cannabis has always been an excellent way to relax after a hectic day. However, if you consider yourself to be more health-conscious, there is one minor concern people may tie to smoking their favorite strain – it likely triggers hunger.

A lot of users regularly report excessive cravings and end up eating junk food post cannabis consumption. To aid those that consider themself to be more attentive to additional weight gain, this article is dedicated to ways that may help you beat the munchies.

Picking the Right Times

You may want to avoid the munchies, but that does not mean you want to skip your regular meals. This is why consuming cannabis before scheduled mealtimes can be an excellent idea because you can ease those spikes in hunger by consuming your usual meal, thereby avoiding munchies (and any unwanted gains).

Finding Healthier Alternatives

You may not always want to schedule your cannabis consumption right before meals, and that is alright! Whenever you finish a pre-roll and start feeling hungry, opt for healthier alternatives to munch on.

Instead of buying a bag of chips or ordering a pizza, have some toasted peanuts or almonds. You can also prepare bowls of your favorite salad and have them premade sitting in your fridge, knowing you’re consuming cannabis that day. Whenever youare done with your pre-roll, you can simply grab a salad bowl from your fridge and enjoy it.

Here is a pro tip: use your creative side to prepare healthy treats ahead of time that are fun to eat, easy to make, and don’t fill your body with empty calories.

Keep Yourself Busy

When you have too much time on your hands, you will keep thinking about how hungry you feel. It may be especially beneficial to users that know they lose all sense of self-control after consuming cannabis to pre-plan something to distract themself. This can range from anything like a movie to watch, a social activity with friends and family, a game, or really anything to take your mind off the want for food. 

The key is to put yourself in a situation where you can hone in and truly stay busy, your mind doesn’t have time to wander around but focus on the task at hand.
