Can cannabidiol (CBD) oil help with obesity and overweight? Anyone who has any of these diseases must know how difficult it is to lose excess fat.  

Due to impatience, those affected often search the Internet for chemical aids that promise to lose extra pounds without much effort, and the temptation is great because of the promises.

Unfortunately, these "supplements" are often not that harmless and, in rare cases, even lead to other health problems. With cannabidiol oil, however, a natural alternative without side effects could be found that can not only help you lose weight, but is also healthy.

Diagnosis of obesity

Basically, obesity is caused by an incorrect unbalanced diet. And a poor and unhealthy diet not only negatively affects our weight, but also our performance and the appearance of our hair or skin.

In addition, excess weight can also have psychological causes. Frustration, for example, or traumatic experiences from the past often cause those affected to overeat to compensate for the psychological problems caused by the consumption of foods rich in calories, fats and sugar.

However, it is relevant to mention that various metabolic diseases can also lead to obesity. In this case, a visit to the doctor can usually help by prescribing certain medications. In principle, however, obesity can be said to be self-inflicted in most cases.

CBD for obesity and overweight: how the cannabinoid affects the body

First of all, let's get one thing straight: CBD is not a miracle drug that burns fat without doing anything. Anyone who is overweight or even obese should definitely have the will to lose weight. And that also includes the ambition and discipline to change your diet and incorporate exercise into your daily life.

Nobody talks about running a marathon or becoming a competitive athlete. But, for example, a daily walk of at least 30 minutes should be a norm. The question commonly arises, can cannabidiol oil help with obesity?

The answer is yes, cannabidiol can serve as a support because it has an anorexic effect in addition to its anti-stress and calming properties. That means that CBD curbs your appetite and prevents cravings.

It is important to remember that taking CBD alone without changing your diet and getting enough exercise will not cause you to lose weight. Cannabidiol oil only serves as a support in this case and can speed up the weight loss process.

Furthermore, obesity can certainly be recognized as an addictionWhile food isn't necessarily an addiction, the constant desire to eat can certainly be compared to it. Because just like with a chemical dependency, in our case too, a supplied “substance” satisfies a strong desire.

 And there are already numerous studies showing that CBD can help treat addictions. There is also a Korean study on the topic of CBD and obesity, which examined the relationship between cannabidiol oil and metabolism and fat burning.

This study found, among other things, that CBD has a positive effect on metabolism by stimulating genes and proteins, oxidizing and breaking down fats, which facilitates weight loss. In addition, it can increase the number of mitochondria and increase their activity.

It also found that CBD can inhibit proteins involved in the generation of fat cells.

Cannabidiol oil during a diet

As already mentioned, CBD, along with the right attitude and diet, can help shed excess weight from the body. Cannabidiol is a herbal product, it has no significant side effects and can help the body on a variety of levels.

It is therefore a good alternative, since obesity can also be triggered by depression, psychosis or other mental illnesses. Due to the calming and anxiolytic effect, cannabidiol oil can also prevent the “binge attacks” it causes.

Because especially during a diet, there are often phases where you just don't see the end and fall into a kind of depression. In this phase, many will relapse. However, CBD can help you get past the tipping point so you don't go back on the wrong track.


To get the most out of the benefits of this powerful drug, first and foremost, find out which type of CBD is best for you. Because in addition to the conventional oil, there are also capsules, pastes or powders for oral use.

However, the oil has proven itself because it is better dosed and is also more quickly absorbed into the body through the mucous membranes of the mouth.

For inexperienced people, it is important to use the product slowly to see how it affects to your body. For some, 3 drops of the oil is enough to achieve the desired effect, while others need 5-10 drops. To experience the full spectrum of effects, a dose should be maintained for approximately 1-2 weeks.

The ingredients need around this time to fully develop their effect in the body, so if after this time the desired effect has not been produced , the dose can be increased.

This way, you can gradually find out over a certain period of time which dose is right for you. To begin with, it is recommended to start with 3 drops 3 times a day.
