CBD stands for cannabidiol. It is the second most prevalent of the active ingredients of cannabis (marijuana). While CBD is an essential component of medical marijuana, it is derived directly from the hemp plant, which is a cousin of the marijuana plant. While CBD is a component of marijuana (one of hundreds), by itself it does not cause a “high.” According to a report from the World Health Organization, “In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential…. To date, there is no evidence of public health related problems associated with the use of pure CBD.”
Due to the uniqueness of everyone’s endocannabinoid system, CBD does not affect any two people the same way. There are a host of factors that influence its efficacy, including genetics, previous history of use, general health, weight, ethnicity and so on. Therefore, while one person may find that 15 mg of CBD a day works wonders for suppressing appetite and boosting weight loss, another may require up to 100 mg (or more) in order to achieve the same results (in fact, they may not experience any results at all).
These products contain high levels of essential fatty acids (EFAs) including linoleic acid, omega-6, alpha-linolenic acid, omega 3, gamma-lineolic acid omega-6, stearidonic acid, and omega-3. Just 15ml per day of hemp oil (derived from hemp seeds) provides the entire daily human requirement of essential fatty acids. Hemp seed oil provides 9kcal/g and it is very low in saturated fatty acids. Hemp seeds contain all 20 amino acids including 9 essential amino acids that our bodies do not produce themselves. These amino acids are believed to improve muscle control and normal body maintenance of cells, muscles, tissues and organs.
Furthermore, a study published in the Journal of Neuroendocrinology has suggested that the ECS is capable of stimulating specific areas of the body involved in metabolism, such as the skeletal muscles and GI tract. This happens due to the presence of anandamide and 2-AG, which are two naturally-occurring compounds in the body that interact with the CB1 and CB2 receptors.
At least one in six Americans is dealing with weight loss issues and many more than that spend time worrying about their weight. As we’ve learned over the years fad diets, cleanses, and shortcuts won’t get you anything but a trip to the hospital. However, adding an extract like CBD oil for weight loss can be a big help to supplement healthy habits and better choices.

It’s important to remember, though, that these areas of study are still very new and in their early stages. This makes it hard to predict just how far their reach and impact will be. Combined with lifestyle and dietary changes, prescribed cannabinoid use will very likely be a pivotal intervention in the future of obesity and diabetes management and recovery.
I’ve been using their natural oil for about a week now, and I thoroughly enjoy it. Recently, however, I got my wife a small bottle of their mint flavored CBD oil, and she loves it. She never cared for the natural hemp taste. For those of you who are interested, it also comes in a citrus flavor. I had the opportunity to sample that once and was not disappointed.
