CBD and Obesity

Studies have shown that cannabis can keep users slim with lower body mass index and lower diabetes risk. Obesity is literally an endemic. Currently, many people are looking for products that will enable them to avoid the obesity or deal with it. And, street stores are full of products that claim to do this. They include miracle supplements, diet pills, slim fast shakes, and tablets. But, do they combat obesity? Basically, some of these products are based on dubious science, others are overpriced, and some have serious side effects due to their harmful sugars and unhealthy chemicals. As such, people that don’t want to suffer the side effects of these products are looking for something new and healthy. That’s where CBD comes in.

CBD Helping With Obesity Issues

Several studies have been conducted to establish the effectiveness of CBD in reducing obesity. Recently, a study that was published by the American Journal of Medicine indicated that CBD users are less likely to suffer from metabolic disorder which is a common and major factor in obesity and other conditions like the heart severe condition and diabetes.

Researchers at the University of Miami studied the correlation between cannabis and metabolic syndromes like increased fat in the abdominal area, high blood pressure, increased blood sugar, and high cholesterol levels.

The study, which involved over 8,000 people at the age of 20-59 years, established that though 22% of the subjects are affected by metabolic syndrome, only less than 14% of CBD users suffer from the syndrome. It also established that people that have used cannabis or CBD in the past are less likely to suffer from this syndrome and 54% of CBD users are less likely to become obese.


Ways CBD Could Help With Obesity

Another study that was also published by the American Journal of Medicine established that CBD is very effective in lowering the levels of fasting insulin. The study established that CBD works by reducing insulin resistance levels while increasing HDL-C levels. This is very important because it helps in improving the symptoms of and preventing obesity and other conditions like diabetes. Additionally, CBD reduces blood sugar level which in turn lowers body mass index while enhancing weight control.

What’s more, CBD plays a significant role in the regulation of the endocannabinoid system which is responsible for governing fat accumulation as well as energy intake. Scientists believe that this regulatory effect of CBD enables people to lose weight and maintain a healthy body mass index.
