This result comes from a Korean study. It was investigated how cannabidiol affects human metabolism and what effect it has.

It was found that CBD can stimulate targeted genes and proteins in the body and also supports the oxidation and breakdown of fat. The metabolism is stimulated and helps you reach your desired weight faster.

CBD increased the number of mitochondria that were simultaneously activated. The mitochondria ensure that the stored fat reserves are transformed into energy. Since the number of mitochondria increases and they work faster, this already leads to a weight loss.

However, this is not the only positive effect that CBD has on a diet. Proteins responsible for fat cell production are inhibited by cannabidiol and less fat is stored in the body.

How to lose weight with CBD on your diet

Basically all CBD products are suitable for a diet. Which one you choose depends on your preferences.

If you don’t like the bitter taste of CBD oil, you don’t have to use it, you can use CBD capsules. The dosage is easiest for CBD oil, CBD capsules and CBD crystals, so these products are ideal.

With CBD crystals you should make sure that they have a high active ingredient content (up to 99.5%). Often you will find a corresponding certificate of analysis in the online shops in which the exact details can be found.
