Full-spectrum CBD, like noteCBD’s products, uses the components of the plant which may interact with your body’s endocannabinoid’s system, reducing inflammation and relieving pain, reducing stress and helping with sleep.
But did you know CBD can help with appetite control?
No, this doesn’t mean it canmake you lose weight, but rather reduce appetite and boost energy and metabolism, which could lead to better food choices, which could turn into weight loss.
Let us explain...
CB1 receptors and CBD
The body’s endocannabinoid system has Cannabinoid receptors types 1 and 2. Cannabinoid receptors type 1 or CB1 receptors are endocannabinoid receptors generally found mainly in the body’s nervous system, and CB2 receptors are mostly found in the immune system.
Unlike THC, which stimulates your CB1 receptors including those linked with appetite, CBD may influence other molecules that could, in turn, deactivate or block the CB1 receptors, according to a 2018 study.
This explains why THC is associated with increased food intake and CBD may do the opposite.
Let’s go a little deeper...
CBD, fat, and metabolism
The CB receptors’ overactivation, specifically the CB1 receptors’ overactivation throughout the fat tissue of the body may be a big contributor to weight gain and weight-related disorders, according to this study.
White fat, or “bad” fat, increases the risk of conditions like heart disease and diabetes linked to obesity and metabolic disorders.
In the 2018 study mentioned above, CBD has been found to turn white fat into brown fat or “good” fat and stimulate the body to break down fats more efficiently. This process is known as “browning”.
Brown fat cells are thought to be a more active form of fat. They burn off energy as heat, which results in the burning of calories. This means that CBD may help the body eliminate fat as waste.
The anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of CBD appeared to decrease blood sugar levels and promote a healthy liver in a study mentioned in Cannabis and Cannabinoid Research.
It’s a domino effect.
What this all means
CBD balances hormones, reduces sugar cravings which leads to better food choices, and increases energy and focus.
Although the research is promising, this doesn’t mean CBD is meant to be used as a sole form of weight-loss treatment.
A healthy diet and exercise are crucial for your body’s wellness.
