Will CBD Make Me Hungry?

Around 14% of people in the U.S. are currently using CBD-infused oil. And, it's not hard to see why. CBD, or cannabidiol, helps with a wide range of emotional and physical conditions. But, what about hunger?

CBD and Hunger

Chances are you've heard of the term "the munchies." It's where you experience intense hunger after you smoke marijuana. And, while the media may overplay it, using or smoking marijuana does increase many individuals appetites. However, CBD products, on the other hand, rarely increase the appetite. Therefore, it's not likely you'll become hungry if you use a CBD product.

The reason why marijuana makes you hungry is due to it's high tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) concentration. THC binds to your CB1 receptor directly, which is part of your endocannabinoid system (ECS). This CB1 receptor activity causes the effect of your appetite increasing. But, CBD doesn't cause this same effect, since it doesn't bind to your CB1 receptor directly like THC.

In fact, CBD products can actually help regulate your appetite, and create the opposite effect of THC. The reason behind it has to do with the finished product, and the amount of THC in it. Most CBD products are made with less than 0.3% THC.

How CBD Affects Your Metabolism

The benefits of CBD are well-documented and plentiful. For example, CBD for anxiety or cannabidiol and sleep disorders treatment have been documented in a study, and found to be effective.

CBD also helps with pain and inflammation, and positively affects your metabolism.

One Korea study studied CBD's effect on fat cells, finding it could stimulate the genes and proteins that help with breaking down fat. Additionally, CBD could also potentially help turn harmful "white fat" into a healthier "brown fat" (fat browning). White fat can increase your risk of developing heart disease and diabetes. Brown fat, however, helps with burning energy, and promoting weight loss.

What If You Want to Increase Hunger to Gain Weight?

If you've lost weight, or lost your appetite because of medicines you're taking or a health problem, CBD might be able to help you indirectly. For instance, when your life feels out of balance, it could impact your digestive system, and keep you from enjoying food. But, since CBD could potentially help release tension, it could boost your appetite indirectly.

Also, because of how CBD can revive and nurture the body, this not only provides your digestive system the space for reviving, since feeling relieved and not experiencing discomfort could possibly help you get back your desire for food. Therefore, if you're trying to balance out your body, bringing back your appetite or gaining weight could help restore this balance.
