Organic Care of California BLOG

 Here is a few Blogs written by the owners Chaz & Shantel Cornellier about the industry and things they have experienced or learned while owning a cannabis delivery service in Chico, Ca in 2017 under Prop 215 and then moving to Sacramento to own a State Liscensed Delivery, C9-0000003-LIC, immediately in 2018. It has been a crazy ride and Chaz loves to explain what the market is doing and how he sees the company doing in the near future.

Munchies Madness: Calling THCV

Hello, cannabis enthusiasts! Today, I'm going to tackle a topic that's near and dear to all of our hearts (and stomachs) – the notorious "munchies."

Why Does Cannabis Give You the Munchies?

Let's start with the basics. Cannabis makes you hungry. But why? It's like a foodie switch goes off in your brain every time you take a puff. Well, there’s science behind this phenomenon. When you consume cannabis, THC (tetrahydrocannabinol, the main psychoactive component in cannabis) binds to cannabinoid receptors in your brain. This process can stimulate your appetite. It's like THC is whispering sweet nothings to your brain cells, telling them, "Hey, you know what would be great right now? A giant burrito." And just like that, you’re raiding the fridge like it owes you money.

The Battle Against the Munchies: Enter THCV

But fear not, my fellow cannabis connoisseurs! There’s a lesser-known cannabinoid on the block – THCV (tetrahydrocannabivarin). Think of THCV as THC's responsible cousin. While THC is the life of the party, encouraging you to eat all the snacks, THCV is the one reminding you about your diet plans. THCV has been known to suppress appetite, which is pretty much the opposite of what THC does. It’s like having a tiny personal trainer in your cannabinoid system saying, “Put down the cookie, buddy.”

Healthy Munchies: It’s Possible!

So, how do you combat the munchies in a healthy way? First, stock your pantry with healthy snacks. Think carrots with hummus, a fruit platter, or some nice, crunchy nuts (no, not the honey-roasted kind). It’s all about being prepared. When the munchies hit, you’ll be ready with your arsenal of healthy goodies.

Hydration is Key

Remember, hydration is your best friend. Sometimes, your body tricks you into thinking you're hungry when you're just thirsty. Keep a bottle of water handy. Plus, staying hydrated is excellent for your skin – a win-win!

Mindful Munching

Mindfulness is not just for meditation. Apply it to eating. Chew slowly, savor each bite, and actually enjoy your food. It's not a race to the bottom of the chip bag.

Get Moving

Don't just sit there! Get up and move around. A little walk, some light stretching, or a spontaneous dance party in your living room can distract you from the relentless call of the munchies.

The Power of THCV Strains

Now, let's talk more about THCV. Some cannabis strains are higher in THCV, which can help keep the munchies at bay. Look for strains like Durban Poison, Jack the Ripper, or Doug's Varin. These strains can offer the benefits of cannabis without the intense urge to raid your pantry.

Conclusion: Balance is Key

In conclusion, while the munchies can be a hilarious and inevitable part of the cannabis experience, there are ways to tackle them head-on. Remember, balance is key. It’s okay to indulge sometimes, but it’s also important to take care of your body. And hey, with THCV, you might just find the perfect balance between enjoying your cannabis and keeping your munchies in check.
Stay high, stay healthy, and remember, the next time you reach for that third slice of pizza, maybe ask yourself, "What would THCV do?"
