On this topic, research is underway in countries where marijuana is legal for medical purposes, for example in the United States in many states. If you speak English, you can read https://www.eatingdisorderhope.com/blog/marijuana-eating-disorder-sufferers or https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/wd7jwx/should-weed-be-used -to-treat-eating-disorders-511

In a nutshell, marijuana helps some people, but is not a panacea. anorexia has psychological roots, and marijuana may not always have a positive effect on the patient. In practice, this means that the doctor (where permitted) can suggest that the patient try marijuana, and if it helps him, then ok, let him continue. If not, or there are some side effects, then another method of treatment will be sought.
