CBD for Weight Loss
CBD is helpful against obesity. It is much more common these days to be overweight or obese than to be at a healthy weight. Just in America, an estimated 160 million Americans are at least overweight if not hitting the obese category.
Being overweight does more than lower your self-esteem, it comes with a laundry list of health problems.
Health Problems Related To Being Over Weight
- Heart Disease and Stroke
- High Blood Pressure
- Gallbladder Disease
- Breathing problems like sleep apnea and athsma
Most people gain unhealthy weight by eating too much and not exercising enough. If this is you, just changing your daily habits can make the world of a difference. Only 5%-10% improvement on your weight can have substantial health benefits.
However, being overweight or obese isn’t as black and white as some people tend to believe. “Just eat better!” “Exercise more!” Well, yes that is what you should do. But sometimes, it’s not that easy.
Many people turn to fad diets, diet pills, and even eating disorders to lose weight. But now we have something safer and healthier than an extreme liquid diet. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a healthy, safe, effective alternative that could change our world as we know it.
More Than Just An Eating Problem
There are people who are overweight that just need more self-discipline to make their life better. However, there are people that eat as healthy as they can and exercise as much as they can getting nowhere. There are also people who have ailments that make it difficult to exercise, which is something that is already difficult to motivate yourself to do on a normal day, right?

How Can CBD Help?
With so many different ways to gain weight, there is no way that CBD oil can help with all of them, right?
CBD works with your endocannabinoid system. This is our body’s regulator, and CBD makes sure that the system itself is regulated. The endocannabinoid system regulates appetite and energy disbursement. It also regulates lipid and glucose metabolism. This basically means it tells your body when to be hungry, what to do with all the stuff you eat, and what chemicals are used.
How Does It Work?
Studies have shown that using CBD medications reduce obesity by blocking receptors that may be going crazy in your brain. Telling your brain to not eat when you aren’t hungry, and telling your brain to burn fat you don’t need, and even telling your body that glucose is okay when it thinks it isn’t.
CBD also helps with a process called “browning” in your fat cells. You have two types of fat in your body, white/yellow and brown. The white/yellow fat is stored excess calories your body doesn’t use after you eat. Brown fat, sometimes called “good fat,” generates heat by burning calories. Studies have shown that when there is more brown fat, the rate at which energy is burned is increased. This reduces the amount of fat in the body, what everyone wants.
CBD does more than just fix your appetite and burn off your fat. It reduces pain, inflammation, and skin diseases. This means that people who experience chronic pain which makes them unable to exercise as much as they would like can now begin to try to work off the weight they don’t want.
I’m Not Obese, Just Over Weight
For those trouble spots and weight that just doesn’t seem to fall off, taking CBD while exercising can help you burn that fat off. CBD can stimulate genes and proteins that help break fat down, and decrease the proteins involved in making fat cells.
