CBD, or Cannabidiol, is one of the many compounds found in the cannabis plant. This widely popular compound is doing wonders in the CBD industry. There are a lot of reasons why CBD and weight loss is growing popular every day among the people of the USA, and around the world. 

CBD has a number of benefits—it helps in curing depression and anxiety, reduces joint pains, improves heart and brain health, and naturally heals inflammation. While most of us are aware of the aforementioned healing properties of CBD, not many know that CBD may also help in weight loss

There have been instances in the past of people using CBD for health benefits, and noticing a reduction in their weight as well, even though they didn’t call for this leverage. So, what’s the truth about CBD and weight loss? Let’s find out.

How CBD works in the human body

As per medical research, CBD may help in reducing weight because of the way it works in the human body. 

The endocannabinoid system of the human body acknowledges two kinds of cannabinoid compounds, known as CB1 and CB2 receptors. CB1 receptors are usually connected with the brain and the rest of the body responds to CB2 receptors. 

In the case of obese people, the brain receptors affect fatty tissues of the body, and thus, bring an imbalance in the whole endocannabinoid system. As per researchers, this is one way to support the argument that CBD and metabolism have an inexplicable relationship. 

Reasons why CBD might help in weight reduction

Some people claim that they have experienced weight loss when they put themselves on a CBD diet. Below are some of the common traits exhibited by these people-

#1 A reduced appetite

When people smoke cannabis, they feel hungry after a while because of the presence of

tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive component of cannabis that gives you the ‘high.’ However,

CBD does not produce hunger for the reason that it carries none or a very little part of THC. 

 

Also, it activates certain molecules that shut off or deactivate CB1 receptors (the brain one), which

results in a reduction in appetite. As a result, people stop overeating and their appetite is automatically

balanced. 

 

#2 Eliminates bad fat

One other positive reason for CBD intake is burning bad fat. For those who don’t know, bad fat is made

from white blood cells, which increase the risk of heart disease, as opposed to brown blood cells, which

help in burning fat instead of adding to it. CBD helps in converting of ‘white’ fat into ‘brown’ fat, which

clearly helps the body to break down the bad fat and then, help in reducing weight. 

#3 Reduction of metabolism and obesity disorders

There is nothing better than a healthy body. Sadly, in today’s world, we aren’t able to pay attention to

our body deserves. Thus, a huge chunk of the US population is obese. With an optimum dosage of CBD

included in your diet every day, you will be relieved from the current, if any, as well as potential disorders and diseases that are created due to obesity.

 

Chronic heart diseases, blood pressure, diabetes, thyroid, etc. are direct results of obesity. If CBD helps in

the reduction of weight, then, perhaps, this will be the simplest way to get rid of that extra weight. 

 

How to use CBD products for weight loss

 

CBD can be used in various ways for weight loss. The only thing you should worry about is that which

The CBD-infused products would suit you best. While there are a lot of options available in the market, below

are the two best ways to take CBD for weight loss.

 

  1. CBD Oil/tinctures: Perhaps the best way to take CBD in your body is via CBD oil and tinctures. All you have to do is administer it under your tongue. There is no exact formula regarding the dosage of CBD, not yet, but an average of 5-6 drops would do. Also, wait for about a minute before you swallow it. 

 

  1. Vaper: The next best thing after CBD oil is a vape pen.  It is also considered to be the best and most accurate way to take CBD for weight loss. All you have to do is press the power button and inhale. Go through the user manual to learn how to do it right. 

 

Things to consider when taking CBD for weight loss

 

Even though CBD has a lot of health benefits, and that may include weight loss, one should really know

or consider the following facts before solely relying on CBD for weight reduction. 

  • An active lifestyle, along with daily CBD-intake is perhaps the best way to reduce weight loss. 
  • You will lose your weight only when your CBD-intake blends with a good exercise regime and a healthy diet.
  • Your CBD dosage must be prescribed by your doctor, or a CBD expert, or well researched.  Everyone is different. Thus, their CBD intake will differ as well.
  • Your CBD must not replace any medication that you are on. Remember, CBD isn’t the cure. Even it undoubtedly helps in healing your body. 
  • It is good for your health, but CBD is NOT the treatment for your obesity. You must remember that. Although it is highly improbable, in case, you feel uncomfortable after taking a dosage of CBD. 
  • It is advisable to only start taking CBD if you completely believe in its benefits. Nothing works well without faith. Quite philosophical, but true. 

 

Should one try CBD-infused products to reduce weight?

As per studies and research, there is no harm in taking CBD on a daily basis, as long as you are on a

suitable dosage. In any case, CBD only has great benefits, and hardly any side-effects. So, yes, even if you

want to try CBD for weight loss, you must go ahead with it. 

The only problem is, there is no concrete evidence to support the curious yet exciting case of CBD and its

effects on weight. Nonetheless, CBD is known to have a good effect on people and thus, one should

definitely give it a try, considering he or she is aware of the risks if any. Also, consult your doctor

about the same. 

Conclusion

There is no ‘one size fits all’ technique for weight loss, especially when it comes to reducing weight via CBD. Even though, it is one of the most natural ways to bring a possible reduction in body weight. However, it is most certainly not the best cure for it. 

One must rely on proven ways of fat reduction, such as intermittent fasting, exercise, and a healthy diet. However, CBD can be taken as a supplement to burn the extra weight and make you feel good about your body. Also, it is also well-accepted by people that daily intake of CBD has tremendous health benefits. 

By all means, you must try CBD-infused products, at least once.
