Cannabis certainly isn’t a universal cure for eating disorders. Every person who struggles with an eating disorder has their own story, and smoking marijuana will affect them in different ways. Cognitive-behavioral therapy is also essential for a lasting recovery. However, smoking weed has the power to help people get through the day, and can even radically change their levels of self-criticism. If it’s a factor in motivating people to let go of their anxieties and eat, there’s no shame in getting high to stay alive. source Science Explorer
