I’ve been dealing with weight issues since I was in my teens.
While I do indeed have some serious appetites for the fattening stuff, it’s also quite genetic.
Weight management and obesity run in my family on both sides. Even when I was an active teen athlete, I still had to control what I ate to keep unwanted pounds off. A minor cannabinoid called THCV has recently played a big role in being able to curb my appetite. This is quite ironic considering that THCV isolates are a close cousin of the THC. That would be the active and psychoactive compound in marijuana. I know from personal experience that using marijuana only makes me want to eat. There is a real reason they call it the munchies. So I was stunned to read research on THCV that indicated those looking to curb or suppress appetite could use this. I get bulk cannabinoids as they are derived from hemp and not a problem where I live. Once I started the THCV, I was surprised by how effective it was from the early going. Using a natural substance in my efforts to get to and maintain a healthy weight are in line with my overall approach to this situation. This time, I’m not doing fad diets or trying to starve myself. That’s just a proven failure. I’ve changed my lifestyle in fact. So I’m eating only natural foods and had to do away with any sort of processed stuff. Plus, consistent, low impact exercise has also been super beneficial. But having the THCV help suppress my appetite has really been quite helpful and a great addition to the plan.
