Research: Smoking Marijuana May Make You Thinner

Can smoking marijuana make you thinner? A new study says that it can.

    I smoke every single day and I've been packing on muscle mass like crazy. It's an ongoing joke in my house how I have an insatiable appetite(Even before I started smoking). My caloric intake is about double what my girlfriends is. I don't just smoke and sit though. I smoke and work out.

    Few other things I've noticed. directly related to my cannabis use I can't prove, but started as soon as I started smoking.

    My accelerated hair loss started at 18. My hair has since stopped thinning, and actually been thicker. Compound found in marijuana? maybe. Maybe it's the fact marijuana can reduce stress which is known for hair loss. Joint pain gone, and the life long depression/Anxiety I've had is controlled. Marijuana is my medicine.
