Will Eating CBD Gummies Help Treat My Anxiety & Stress
Is it possible that eating candy can help you lose weight? If they are dosed with CBD, the cannabinoid responsible for regulating the neurotransmitters throughout the body, it just might be. By helping to restore regular activity to the body’s own endocannabinoid system, CBD differs from most healing substances by acting with the body, instead of on it. Endogenous cannabinoid receptors line the brain, organs, nerves, and digestive system. Their job is to regulate processes that include fertility, mood, pain sensation, sleep cycles, and – you guessed it – appetite.
Interestingly, researchers have shown that THC, perhaps the best-known compound in marijuana and hemp, acts on cannabinoid receptors in the hypothalamus to stimulate appetite. The body typically uses its own hypothalamic endocannabinoids to control the level of the hunger hormone leptin in the blood. THC reduces these levels, creating a desire for food. Similar research has found THC increases the pleasure and flavor of food. CBD works just the opposite, by keeping these hunger hormones in check, reducing appetite and the pleasure of food. Stress, anxiety, depression, sleeplessness, and exhaustion can all increase food cravings, and CBD acts to counter their effects.
Pain and soreness coincide with poor diet. The underlying reason is that inflammatory agents in unhealthy food encourages inflammatory disorders like arthritis. Many don’t realize that general pain and soreness is a symptom of chronic underlying inflammation. The delayed healing associated with a poor diet can be synergistically improved using CBD, which not only helps to regulate appetite but also works throughout joints and muscle to monitor healing processes. CBD even helps control the ebb and flow of “feel good” and “feel bad” hormones in the brain. Dopamine and serotonin have been found to improve their activity when modulated by CBD in laboratory studies.
It’s often lifestyle that is the most significant cause of anxiety. Expectations at work, trouble sleeping, rising housing costs, student loans, and constant advertisements all add to our stress. Because CBD can help the neurotransmitters throughout our body maintain normal/optimal function, cannabidiol can keep anxiety at bay and help you hold up under high stress. CBD is one of the first real lifestyle drugs, a tool for maintaining consistency and longevity.
So yes, eating candy can help you lose weight if it’s in the form of CBD gummies, a popular offering from manufacturers. The gummies provide an excellent fast-absorbing delivery system for CBD by way of the gelatinous carbohydrate pectin, which gives them their shape and texture. Most manufacturers don’t intend for the gummies to be eaten like candy; instead, they make each piece the equivalent of a small to moderate cannabidiol dose that is easy to measure and much less messy than tincture bottles when on the go. So it looks like CBD “candy” can actually help you with anxiety, stress, soreness, and weight loss – who would have thought?
