MORALES BASTO, Juan Pablo  y  POVEDA ESPINOSA, Elpidia. Effects of marijuana consumption on food intake and nutrient metabolism: a review. Rev Esp Nutr Hum Diet [online]. 2017, vol.21, n.3, pp.280-292. ISSN 2174-5145.  http://dx.doi.org/10.14306/renhyd.21.3.328.

Marijuana is one of the most consumed psychoactive in Colombia and worldwide. It has been observed that it has effects over central nervous system; in consequence it may affect the metabolism and nutritional status of marijuana users. This article intends to evaluate if consumption of marijuana and the activation of the cannabinoid system have the capacity to activate physiological mechanisms through which the intake and the nutrient metabolism get affected. As a result, it is found that the consumption of marijuana influences increasing the orexigenic stimulus and decreasing the anorexigenic stimulus, which influence increasing the ingestion and changing the production of important enzymes in the metabolism of fat. Likewise, it affects the appearance of alterations in the nutritional status of the consumers that involve the decrease of their body max index (BMI), which contrasts with the results related to the intake, thus highlights the importance of carry out deep studies that could explain this questioning.
