Is CBD Effective For Weight Loss?
CBD might be well-known for helping epileptic patients manage their seizures, reduce pain and inflammation in arthritic individuals, and even alleviate stress and anxiety. But can it be an effective weight loss supplement?
Apparently, the answer is yes. In fact, studies have shown that CBD use may be associated with a much lower incidence of metabolic syndrome, a major risk factor for obesity, heart disease, and diabetes.
Other studies have even linked CBD use with smaller waist circumference.
But how is CBD able to do this?
Animal studies have shown that CBD may be able to stimulate proteins and genes that stimulate the breakdown and oxidation of fat and inhibit the production of fat cells.
More specifically, CBD may be useful in “browning” fatty tissue, which is currently being looked into as a way to fight obesity.
