According to an article on CNN (not all their articles are about bashing Trump) not enough sleep will make you crave carbs and food with lots of calories.
The article states:
‘There is a scientific reason why a lack of sleep is linked to appetite. When you’re sleep deprived, research has shown, levels of a hormone called ghrelin spike while another hormone, leptin, takes a nosedive. The result is an increase in hunger.‘
As for the comparison to getting the munchies from cannabis:
‘Another reason we gain weight is due to an ancient body system called the endocannabinoid system. Endocannabinoids bind to the same receptors as the active ingredient in marijuana, which as we know, often triggers the “munchies.”
