CBD & Weight Loss…How Ironic

I think many of us associate cannabis with an attack of the “munchies”...not a recipe for weight loss. CBD oil of course is different since it has the psychoactive component, namely THC removed. But still, weight loss? I have had amazing results in the clinic with CBD oil for inflammatory conditions (arthritis), pain syndromes, sleep and anxiety. According to this article
weight loss can be added to the list.

Metabolism and Appetite

How exactly does it work? There are two mechanisms at work with CBD oil that can help you lose weight. CDB activates the endocannabinoid system boosting your metabolism. Additionally, unlike THC, CBD binds receptors that suppress your appetite. This provides a powerful combination to help you lose weight.

Exercise and Lifestyle

Unfortunately, you cannot expect to sit on the couch eating potato chips and lose weight no matter how much CBD oil you are taking. You still have to eat healthy and exercise to maximize your weight loss and reach your goals.

Other Consideration

Ready to give it a shot? Here are some things you should consider:

  • How to dose: You should consult with someone who has experience with CBD oil to determine the ideal dosage and strength for your situation.
  • How to take it: For best results, CBD oil should be taken on an empty stomach. Place the drops under your tongue and hold there for 30 seconds before swallowing.
  • Where to buy: The counter at the local 7-11 with the clerk giving you advice is probably not the best place to make your purchase. You need to buy a product that is third party certified to verify both the strength of the product and that the product has had the THC removed. Otherwise you could be wasting your money or getting something, you did not bargain for.

The absolute best way to purchase and take CBD is to do it as part of a comprehensive weight loss plan under the guidance of a practitioner who is trained in the use of CBD oil. You can either do hundreds of hours of research on your own or rely on someone who has and has clinical experience in its use.  Acupuncture provides wonderful results for weight loss by itself. When you add in CBD oil it only makes it that much more effective.
