Study Shows Marijuana Consumers Don’t Weigh More than Non-Consumers
A new study published in Diabetes Care, a journal of the American Diabetes Association, has found that cannabis consumers don’t weigh more than non-consumers, and don’t intake more calories – though they do intake slightly more carbohydrates. The study, which found that consumers had slightly lower levels of a specific type of cholesterol, concluded that total body fat was not significantly different between those who do, or don’t consume cannabis.
According to the report, cannabis consumers had “lower percentages of total and subcutaneous abdominal fat.”
These findings clearly combat decades of propaganda that indicates consuming cannabis makes you fat, and unable to control your food intake.
