2. Cannabis helps keep you slim
Despite the cultural stereotype of stoners binging on midnight munchies, the facts seem to back up the idea that cannabis users are actually thinner and healthier (on average) than non-users. A 2011 study published in the Journal of Epidemiology made waves when it said that regular cannabis users had approximately 37% lower rates of obesity.
Though a variety of lifestyle differences may be at play here, a recent study published in the American Journal of Medicine also showed that cannabis users had lower levels of insulin to complement their smaller waistbands -- a significant finding when nearly 30 million Americans have diabetes, and an estimated 86 million are considered pre-diabetic.
