N8-CBD Weight Loss Tincture


CBD & Weight: What Research Has To Say

The built-in endocannabinoid system of the body responds to various compounds through the cannabinoid receptors, namely CB1 and CB2 receptors. The former is present in the brain and the rest of the central nervous system while the latter is present throughout the body.

With ongoing studies involving CBD oils and obesity, it was found that CB1 receptors are prevalent in fatty tissues, which add to the hypothesis that CBD can possibly help in weight loss.

Here are some of the medical claims with details on research that back them up:

  • Reducing risks to metabolic disorders – According to a 2018 study published in the National Center for Biotechnology Information or NCBI under Frontiers in Endocrinology, the over activation of the CB1 receptors in the fat tissues can lead to obesity and other metabolic disorders. Therefore, when one consumes a CBD and such a compound enters the body, it can block or deactivate these receptors thereby reducing the risk of obesity and other metabolic issues.
  • Burning fats – Another published study in the NCBI under MDPI International Journal of Molecular Sciences, CBD has the potential to burn fats by turning white fat cells into brown fat cells. It is noted that the latter type of cells is an active form of fat because it burns calories, which is a significant factor in weight loss.

Reducing appetite – Based on the above-mentioned study, CBD compounds influence other body molecules to shut off the CB1 receptors that lead to reduced appetite. More so, one should note that the CBD effect is different from that of the THC effect which works the opposite – igniting the appetite.
