CBD is believed to have weight loss benefits for two main reasons.
Fat burning effect
Let’s introduce it in detail one by one.
CBD supports the normal functioning of a person’s homeostasis by working on the ECS.
Appetite is part of a person’s homeostasis, and usually when we run out of energy, we get hungry and our appetite is increased. However, when the homeostasis is disrupted by stress in daily life or by the hormonal cycles of women, symptoms such as overeating and anorexia appear. This is believed to be caused by the failure of a person’s neurotransmitters to function properly.
So CBD helps to regulate such appetite disturbances and control the energy intake of a person’s needs, preventing binge eating.
Fat Burning Effects
A study conducted by a Korean research institute in 2018 has shown that CBD can have a fat burning effect. To be exact, CBD has an effect called “fat cell browning”. Fat cell browning is the conversion of hard-to-burn white fat, commonly referred to as “WAT”, into consumable brown fat, commonly referred to as “BAT”.
This phenomenon is said to occur when the body’s mitochondria, which are essential for the production of BAT, are activated by CBD.
In other words, CBD is taken into the body and helps to convert stored fat into fat that is easy to consume.
Some clinics that actually use natural remedies are already prescribing CBD for patients with metabolic syndrome, diabetes, and high cholesterol, showing that it can be effective.
In addition, CBD, which is applied to the skin, is expected to help relieve skin and muscle tension. This makes the action of stretching and massage during weight loss more effective and efficient.
While dramatic weight loss may be difficult to achieve with CBD alone, it can be a strong ally in helping you lose weight.
