CBD Oil for Weight Loss
Does CBD Oil help lose weight?
Essentially, CBD assists with weight loss by interacting with the endocannabinoid system lowering appetite, accelerating metabolism, and lowering risk factors for metabolic disorders.
Cannabinoids are natural chemical messengers produced by the body that interact within the endocannabinoid system (also known as ECS). Plant-based cannabinoids that mimic that process are called phytocannabinoids. CBD, or cannabidiol, is one of active cannabinoids identified in hemp.
The endocannabinoid system has at least two types of cannabinoid receptors, CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors are more common among individuals suffering from obesity, which leads medical professionals to believe there is a link between these CB1 receptors and obesity.
CBD helps the endocannabinoid system restore body balance and maintain CB1 receptors at the healthy level.
Along with that, CBD can help with weight loss by lowering appetite and accelerating metabolism simultaneously. Contrary to marijuana, which make us feel the hunger, CBD decreases the appetite (according to several studies), and, potentially, CBD help metabolize stored fat.
