Being Tired May Make You Snack Like a Pot Smoker

Being Tired May Make You Snack Like a Pot Smoker

When sleep-deprived, brain may release more of chemical that keeps you snacking

Get some more sleep before you put this in your mouth

If you've wondered why you nosh like crazy after a night of tossing and turning, scientists think they've figured it out: Your brain may compensate for the lack of sleep by releasing chemicals similar to those that pot smokers breathe in, resulting in the tired person's version of the "munchies," NBC News reports. In the study published in the journal Sleep, a University of Chicago team led by Dr. Erin Hanlon found that blood levels of an endocannabinoid known as 2-arachidonoylglycerol (aka 2-AG)—a chemical produced in the brain that's similar to those found in pot and that typically appears in the blood at peak levels in the afternoon and stays low overnight—actually kept rising after the afternoon spike and remained high all evening in subjects who were sleep-deprived. Not only did the drowsy participants find it harder to resist nibbling, they chose not-so-healthy snacks. People who use marijuana and overeat also "tend to eat things that are yummy and rewarding," Hanlon says. In this admittedly small study (14 people in their 20s), the subjects camped out for four days at a time at a sleep center, with some volunteers allowed to doze for 8.5 hours a night while others only got 4.5 hours. On the fifth day, the subjects' first meal was delayed until 3pm, followed by unlimited snacks, then a second meal at 7:30pm. All subjects gorged during the first meal, taking in around 2,000 calories each, but the subjects with less shut-eye ate 1,000 more calories during the rest of the day (and mostly salty or sweet junk food); the rested subjects consumed just 600 more calories. Some of the tired subjects had trouble resisting these "reward" foods even when full, per the Guardian. "If you have a Snickers bar, and you've had enough sleep, you can control your natural response," Hanlon tells NBC. "But if you're sleep-deprived, your hedonic drive for certain foods gets stronger, and your ability to resist them may be impaired, so you are more likely to eat it. Do that again and again, and you pack on the pounds." (Here's something else that can have a similar effect.)

There is no better chocolate treat than good chocolate fudge. You can eat it any time and it can be easily carried and concealed. Today we’re going to make highly potent cannabis infused fudge. This is one of the best tasting edibles you can make and the recipe is quick and simple.

Ingredients:

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup or more of cannabis butter
  • 2 cups of granulated sugar
  • ½ a cup of cocoa
  • 1 cup of whole milk
  • Vanilla extract
  • Chopped nuts (optional)

Kitchen tools required:

  • Candy thermometer
  • 8 X 8 baking tray
  • Pot
  • A Whisk
  • A Wooden spoon
  • A Cutting board
  • A knife

Directions

Start by greasing the baking tray and set it aside. Now, set the candy thermometer in the pot. Add the sugar, cocoa and milk to the pot and using the whisk stir them together in the pot. Turn the heat up to a medium flame and bring the mixture to a boil as you keep stirring it. Once the mixture boils, stop stirring it and reduce the flame.

As the mixture simmers watch the thermometer till it reaches 238 degrees Fahrenheit. Another way to check this is to drop a spoonful of the mixture into a bowl of cool water and if it balls up into a mixture that you can hold in your hand it’s at the right temperature.

Now turn off the heat and let the mixture cool to well below 150 degrees Fahrenheit. Next, add the cannabis butter and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. If you are using any nuts add them into the mixture now. Using the wooden spoon mix or whip everything together well. Beat the mixture till it loses that glossy look and becomes thick and has a matt finish look.

Now pour the mixture into the greased baking tray and put it in the fridge to cool for 30 to 40 minutes. You can clean you fudge pot easily if you fill it with soapy water and let it boil.

Once the fudge has cooled properly and set, take it out of the fridge andtip it on to a cutting board. Cut it up into pieces as you like. This recipe should give you about 16 pieces. Your marijuana chocolate fudge is ready! It will be very rich and yummy with all the cannabis butter and therefore quite potent and you can get a pretty good buzz in your head! As always, here’s a video for you to follow along:
