We have mentioned in many of our earlier blogs that CBD is gaining popularity in the whole world for the kind of benefits that it offers. So while it is a promising treatment for many health issues, today we will see how CBD is related to weight loss.
CBD and weight loss
CBD interacts with body’s endocannabinoid system and helps maintain homeostasis. It basically responds to different chemicals in the body through two cannabinoid (CB) receptors, called the CB1 and CB2 receptors. CB1 is mainly present in the brain and central nervous system while CB2 is mainly responsible for maintaining immunity.
In the case of obese people, CB1 receptors are more widespread, especially in fatty tissues owing to which it is believed that there is a link between the activation of the CB1 receptors and obesity. In fact, CBD works with other receptors as well and plays a role in weight loss or other critical metabolic functions. Besides, there are also some properties of CBD that indicate its ability to help reduce weight, such as:
We have written before that CBD has a lot to do with receptors and the same holds true when talking about appetite. As per some studies, CB1 receptors antagonists may help reduce appetite and control obesity while CB2 receptors decrease inflammation and reduce food intake, thereby possibly helping reduce obesity.
Turns bad fat into good fat
Everyone knows there are two kinds of fats; bad fat or white fat, brown fat or good fat. As per some research, CBD plays multiple roles in how the body interacts with fat. It is said that CBD helps convert white fat cells into brown fat cells thus helping the body prevent being obese.
Factors to consider when taking CBD for obesity
Remember, CBD is not a treatment for obesity. Also, CBD is neither a shortcut for preventing obesity nor a replacement for a healthy diet and regular exercise. And though a few studies are conducted, a lot is still to be known. We would suggest asking your doctor for using CBD for weight loss as CBD may cause adverse interactions. If your doctor allows then consume CBD along with exercising and eating healthy; missing on any of these will affect the results.
