Okay, be honest. How many of you made a New Year’s Resolution at last month to lose weight? It’s the most common resolution made every year! But come February 1st, we’re back to eating Oreos and lamenting that we’ll try again next year. But what if I told you that CBD oil could help you stick to that resolution and actually meet your weight loss goals? CBD for Weight Loss sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it?
Well, there’s no magic weight loss pill (yet - c’mon, Science, get on that!), but it’s true that CBD oil could help you lose weight, along with diet and exercise.
“But wait, Mermaid Wizdom,” I hear you protesting. “Doesn’t CBD give you the munchies? Remember those Oreos…?”
Fair point. Thanks to dozens of movies like “How High” and “Friday,” everyone knows that smoking marijuana can increase your appetite and give you “the munchies.” But it’s the THC in the marijuana that causes this - and we know that there’s virtually no THC in CBD oil (by definition, CBD oil must contain less than .03% THC). Using CBD for weight loss has been actually shown to decrease appetite because it relaxes the part of the brain that is responsible for eating. So CBD could actually help you stop overeating, especially when you’re stressed or bored.
CBD also affects your metabolism through “fat browning,” which isn’t as gross as it sounds. We have two types of fat tissue. White-colored fat tissue stores energy, and brown or beige-colored fat tissue actually burns energy. The “fat browning” process converts the white fat into brown fat, which boosts your body’s ability to burn calories and decreases the generation of fat cells.
But that’s not all. Weight gain can also be a side effect or symptom of depression, and CBD has been shown to be an effective treatment for depression. By managing the depression, patients are then enabled to take better care of themselves - they have more energy, are more active, and may make healthier food choices. Throw in that CBD can also help patients with debilitating pain and insomnia, and you can see how CBD can lead to a better quality of life for many people.
Of course, we are all unique individuals, and what works for one person won’t necessarily work for others. As with any supplement, Mermaid Wizdom recommends that you do your research, talk to your doctor, and consider any other medications you’re taking before you begin taking CBD for Weight Loss. Finding the right dosage is key as well, so start with a low dosage and stick with that for a few weeks. If you’re not seeing the results you want, increase the dose slowly to prevent any side effects. You can learn more about CBD dosing on our About CBD Oil page.
