CBD for weight loss. YES, please!

 

CBD for weight loss?? YES, please!


I know what you are thinking. Cannabis = munchies. But this information is a bit antiquated. I can tell you from experience, it is strain specific. Some strains make me want nachos, others leave me not even thinking about food.


If you are anything like me, January is GO time on all fronts. Dropping a few lbs pre-bikini season is top on my list this time of year, and it's going to take more than pilates to get the job done. SO, I am giving this a shot!


Are you in? Here's what you need to know.... Your cannabinoid system is deeply involved with many aspects of your metabolism. The region of the brain called the hypothalamus controls appetite which then regulates the secretion of two different hormones: ghrelin and leptin. The neural circuit in the hypothalamus that regulates Ghrelin is stimulated by CB1 receptors. This is how THC creates such powerful cravings. CBD, however, happens to be an incredibly effective CB1 blocker, yay!
