The majority of us want to feel as healthy as possible, but many have yet to crack the code on how to achieve that. We’re stuck in limbo between wanting to live a healthier lifestyle and actually committing to it. We may pick up a healthy habit and stick with it for a few days, maybe even weeks. But let’s be honest, we live in a “quick-fix” world. If we don’t see immediate results, we bail! And while there is no shortage of information out there, it mostly frustrates us. From those that promise to help us lose belly fat to ones that guarantee mid-day mood-boost. Odds are, if you can Google it, you can find it.
But will it be effective?
When it comes to your weight-loss journey, it isn’t about a magic pill or a Google answer. It’s about listening to your body and getting it back in balance. In fact, weight loss is oftentimes just a side effect of living a healthier lifestyle. CBD helps to support individuals seeking healthier lifestyles by the way it interacts with the body. We’ve experienced the benefits first hand and we hear from our customers daily about how they have seen improvement in their conditions.
At Shah Saffron CBD, we firmly believe in the power of CBD when it comes to healing our bodies and restoring balance – and we want to share that with you. If you are struggling to drop a few pounds after the holidays, keep reading to learn more about how CBD can help support you on your journey.
CBD and The Endocannabinoid System
First, let’s revisit what the ECS System is and the role it plays in our bodies. Our bodies are made up of vast networks of receptors that make up the Endocannabinoid System. This system affects just about every one of our biological processes. It is constantly at work to create homeostasis in the body – remember that balance we mentioned earlier? Hemp goes hand in hand with this system, and CBD is derived from Hemp. See where we are going?
How the Body Communicates
The effects of CBD in the body are largely due to how it affects the body’s ECS. This system communicates and responds to different chemicals in the body through CB1 and CB2 Receptors. CB1 receptors are most dense in the brain and central nervous system. CB2 receptors are mainly in the immune system.
How does this relate back to weight loss? Well, research suggests that the Endocannabinoid System may actually play a key role in regulating appetite,
“The endocannabinoid system has been found to regulate appetite and energy expenditure, as well as lipid and glucose metabolism. Interest in blocking stimulation of this pathway to aid weight loss and reduce cardiometabolic risk factor development is an area of interest and research.”pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov
Although CBD alone won’t help you shed extra weight, it can support you along the way through regulating appetite and controlling your metabolic rate.
CBD and Regulating Appetite
First, let’s clear up a common myth. When people think of CBD, they often think of Cannabis, and with cannabis comes….the munchies. While THC may cause hunger, there is little evidence that CBD does the same. Our products DO NOT contain THC. While we have a ways to go in the world of CBD, there are some promising findings out there already that support CBD and weight loss effects.
A 2018 study published by The National Institutes of Health found,
What does this medical mumbo-jumbo mean? Remember those receptors we mentioned above, the CB1 and CB2? Well, because CB1 receptors are most “dense” in the brain and Central Nervous System, they can have quite the impact when it comes to reducing appetite.
