If you are using cannabis, a new study has shown that you may have a lower body mass index compared to people who do not use cannabis and follow the same lifestyle habits. This is great news for all of us here at Vegas Cannabis Mag because we sure like to indulge in our edibles. This new study is not advocating that if you consume marijuana that you will be slimmer around the waist, but simply sharing the facts. What do you think?

People who smoke marijuana daily may be slimmer than those who don’t use the drug, a new study suggests.

Researchers found that people in the study who used marijuana daily had about a 3 percent lower BMI (body mass index), on average, than those who did not use marijuana at all.

“There is a popular belief that people who consume marijuana have the munchies, and so [they] are going to eat a lot and gain weight, and we found that it is not necessarily the case,” said lead study author Isabelle C. Beulaygue, a research support specialist in interventional radiology at the University of Miami.

The researchers found that the BMIs of women who smoked marijuana daily during the study were 3.1 percent lower than the BMIs of women who did not smoke marijuana daily during the study period. And the BMIs of men who smoked marijuana daily were 2.7 percent lower than the BMIs of those who did not smoke marijuana, according to the study, published in September in The Journal of Mental Health Policy and Economics.

One of the strengths of the new study was that the researchers controlled for various factors of a person’s lifestyle that can normally affect people’s weight, such as their diet, exercise and alcohol consumption, according to the study. Even after the researchers took these factors into consideration, the link between marijuana use and lower BMI held, the researchers said.

Beulaygue said that the researchers are not advocating for marijuana as a new weight loss tool. Previous research has linked marijuana use to potential health effects on the brain and the heart.

The researchers said they don’t know for sure what mechanism may explain this link. However, previous research has suggested that people who use marijuana regularly may break down blood sugar more quickly, which, in turn, may help to prevent weight gain, the researchers said.
