A lack of appetite is a symptom that accompanies a variety of ailments including anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and cachexia. Appetite can also be a symptom of other, life threatening illnesses such as cancer and HIV.
There have been various studies on the effect of cannabis on a lack of appetite and its related illnesses.
In 2015, an article published by Marco Koch and Luis Varela revealed that cannabinoid receptors play a key role in the promotion of feeding in mice. The study concluded that when receptors are activated through the use of cannabis, the desire for feeding increases.
While in one of the earliest studies of its kind, the principal pioneer of cannabis research discovered that anandamide, an endogenous (within the body) cannabinoid, significantly increases appetite.
