6 Ways Cannabis Can Help You on Thanksgiving Day

This Thanksgiving Day is special for many cannabis advocates—thanks to their efforts, eight additional states voted for the legalization of recreational and medical marijuana.

If you are going to celebrate this holiday with your friends or relatives, it is better not to talk about politics. However, someone may find family settings to be stressful in any case, so this is a great reason to consume weed on Thanksgiving Day.

Stimulate Appetite

It was scientifically confirmed that cannabis improves appetite and makes your taste buds more sensitive. A 2014 study discovered that laboratory rats experienced an increase of hunger after taking weed. Researchers explained that marijuana influenced the sense of smell that is often perceived as acute hunger because of the close connection between taste and smell. Further studies on this issue have confirmed these findings.
