“So it appears that CBD would make you lose weight?” The CBD420 team was interested in the following question… is it possible to lose weight with CBD? If so, how does this work? Read on and make up your mind!

A brief overview of CBD´s properties

CBD´s numerous qualities

CBD, or cannabidiol, is one of several cannabinoids from the Cannabis sativa L. plant which activate cannabinoid receptors in your brain and other organs.

CBD-based products can have beneficial effects, including:

  • Relieving pain (chronic pain, menstrual pain, muscle pain or joint pain)
  • Improving sleep
  • Regulating mood
  • Stimulating creativity and motivation
  • Improving post-exercise recovery
  • Hydrating and protecting your skin and healing scars

Although studies are being published, we still don´t know all of CBD´s qualities.

Do hemp and CBD have the same properties?

Hemp is derived from seeds whereas CBD comes from the plant itself.

Otherwise, hemp and CBD have the same properties: they relieve pain and inflammation, act as antioxidants, relieve stress, hydrate your skin, help scars heal, don´t provoke allergies and are nutritional and rich in essential fatty acids (omega 3 and 6), minerals and vitamin E.

On the other hand, the expected effects will be more pronounced with CBD than with hemp.

The benefits of CBD on nutritional balance

CBD´s effect as an appetite suppressant

In certain cases, stress and anxiety can push you to eat comfort food to compensate for a lack of serotonin (also called the “happiness hormone”). Using CBD can revert this since it helps stimulate serotonin production.

CBD: an ally against gaining weight?

Subsequently, cortisol (stress hormone) levels can increase if you have anxiety. This promotes fat storage in your body. By stimulating serotonin, CBD also helps reduce cortisol levels in your body.

CBD: rich in omega 3

In certain cases, eating food that contains omega 3 may reduce inflammation of adipose tissue (the organ that stores fatty acids).

Also, adopting a diet rich in omega 3 helps reinforce your immune system. As a result, if you are less tired and get sick less often, your dietary intake will always be the same.

Therefore, a few drops of CBD oil in your vinaigrettes or soup can improve your metabolism!

Does using CBD make you lose weight?

Through physiological mechanisms, cannabidiol can influence your nutritional balance, appetite and fat burning.

However, these mechanisms may not work the same way in everyone.

We encourage you to discuss these subjects with your doctor if you´re thinking of going on a diet.
