I don’t get the munchies when I’m stoned. On the contrary, when I get high, I usually feel full. Eating is the last thing I want to do, though I often feel thirsty and drink a lot of water.
When I’m not high, I usually overeat. I’m a chronic emotional eater. But when I’m high, I feel my feelings, and I don’t want to pile food on top of all those tender emotions. Then the sources of my anxiety become transparent to me, and I can make conscious choices about how to address them.
I’m wondering what other people’s experiences are with pot and appetite. I’m thinking that the cliche about pot “giving you the munchies” is not always true. Am I right?
