CBD Research - How CBD Works for Weight and Appetite
HOW DOES CBD AFFECT WEIGHT AND APPETITE
We almost loathe writing this article.
How many substances have come and gone as a wonder cure for weight loss.
It's a veritable wasteland of cheesy marketing and potentially bad health effects.
We didn't want to color CBD in the same light since there's quite a bit of research at the National Institute of Health on the benefits of CBD.
Then came Diabetes.
As research increased on how CBD works with Diabetes, new information came forth on the interaction of CBD and our body's mechanisms for:
- Energy use
- Gut function
- Brown fat
- Healthy weight maintenance
These ties directly into having a healthy weight.
Now...in today's world, healthy usually means lower.
Yes, there are those who can't put weight on but it's not THE epidemic.
We'll cry them a river in another article!
Here's the deal....when you read the first section on modern research regarding weight gain and appetite...
You're going to realize it was never a fair fight!
We'll get to that soon.
Let's then look at how CBD works with weight and appetite in depth.
Based on research.
We'll include the new cutting edge research on intraepithelial T lymphocytes and CBD! (you won't want to miss that!).
No schlocky advertising wizards!
You can always jump to the list of 3rd party tested CBD here:

Let's get started.
A Modern Look At Why We Gain Weight
Yes, there's the pure physics of too many calories and not enough activity.
That doesn't explain why some people can eat whatever they want and never seem to put on weight.
Check out new research below that might affect this trait!
Or more importantly, why some people will pick at their food and not eat much at all!
There are obvious genetic differences between us that affect appetite and metabolism.
New research is saying the situation is much more complex than that.
There are effects of:
- Hormones in food and our environment
- Gut bacteria effects (very important!!)
- Preservatives and Pesticides
- Genetic differences in how we absorb and process nutrients
When you're eating that scone, its not just flower, oil, egg, and lemon.
There's so MUCH more than figures in depending on how it's sourced and how your body processes it.
Before we jump into the endocannabinoid system's influence and CBD directly, let's touch base on these.
Otherwise, we're just fighting the tide!
You may say, I haven't had antibiotics in years!
Yes, but your food probably has.
Especially meat if it's not organic or it IS from restaurants.
It's not just the hit of antibiotics given an animal who shows symptoms of being sick before slaughter.
Big ag figured out a long time ago that you can fatten up animals at a ridiculous clip if you gave them antibiotics.
There's a knock-on effect in the body:
The bacteria in treated mice activated more genes that turn carbohydrates into short-chain fatty acids, and they turned on genes related to lipid conversion in the liver.
