CBD for Weight Loss: Can Weight Loss Sprays Help?

Weight loss is a major health issue for many of us. In our fast paced modern life we are kind of addicted to sugary foods and what not. Think of your morning coffee at Starbucks, it contains loads of sugar to begin your day with. A burger or slice of pizza might find its place on your lunch plate. You find yourself helpless simply because you don't feel energized enough to visit the gym on your workdays and are actively looking for a solution that might aid your weight loss journey. A CBD weight loss spray can be of help.

CBD has a range of anecdotal health benefits that people are drawn to, including: reducing anxiety and depression, improving sleep quality, and promoting relaxation.  CBD weight loss spray may help with hunger pangs by decreasing appetite. But it can also cause contradictory effects in some people.

There are many kinds of CBD infused sprays available in the market. Some are for oral administration, others you can apply externally (skincare sprays) for symptomatic relief. 

But it is important for you to keep your end goal in mind (what are you trying to achieve with your spray). In this context, we are specifically talking about CBD infused weight loss spray.

To make sure you get the best possible CBD weight loss experience with a spray, explore all of your options before purchasing one. 

What are the additional ingredients? Does CBD make you hungry or does it actually promote weight loss? Does the brand have a refund policy in place?

Here we are going to share information that will answer all these questions.

What is CBD

what is cbd

CBD is a naturally occurring compound  that you can find in cannabis plants (marijuana or hemp plant). It makes up about 40% of the plants' extracts. [1]

CBD is not psychoactive, which means it does not produce a mind-altering effect like THC (the other most discussed cannabinoid of cannabis plants).

In addition to its effect on your endocannabinoid system, CBD has a number of different other effects on your body's receptors. CBD is a natural phytocannabinoid compound (plant chemical). Now we know that CBD along with some other cannabinoids can trigger or stop certain cannabinoid receptors in the brain and body to ensure homeostasis. [2]

CBD prevents the breakdown of anandamide in your brain. It is commonly referred to as the “bliss molecule”. [3] CBD prolongs the presence of anandamide in your system, which helps alleviate pain and improve brain function. [4]

By controlling cytokine (inflammatory molecules) production, CBD may help decrease inflammation and discomfort. [3]

However, human research on CBD is still few and far between. We do not know all the effects of CBD on human health. CBD can affect your body in a number of other ways.

We'll explore the benefits of using CBD to lose weight below. But first, it's important to understand how CBD affects your body weight (BMI).

How CBD Affects Your Body Weight

CBD oil and weight loss go hand in hand but there has been little scientific research on how it may affect your diet or metabolism.

However, some studies have shown that CBD can actually suppress appetite, which may lead to weight loss over time. [5]  We do not completely understand the mechanism behind this, but it may be related to CBD’s action on our body’s endocannabinoid system. [2]

The endocannabinoid system reacts to phytocannabinoids (plant based compounds) like CBD, THC, CBG, CBN etc. It does this through two cannabinoid receptors, CB1 and CB2.

What Recent Studies Tell Us

Recent  preclinical and clinical studies suggest that CBD can help those who are suffering from acute or chronic pain. [6]

Another 2015 research on pain and obesity showed that both these conditions co-occur in a significant number of adult cases. Results data is quite similar for children and teens. Obesity is somehow connected with the existence and intensity of pain related complaints. [8]

Recent 2017 studies on “Cannabinoid Receptor Signaling in Central Regulation of Feeding Behavior” show us that Cannabinoids like CBD may help boost metabolism and reduce appetite by interacting with the CB1 and CB2 cannabinoid receptors. [9]

You might get surprised to know that the fat in your body comes in inconsistent colors. Brown fat cells and white fat cells are two different types of fat tissue cells that Scientists pointed out.

In some contexts, brown fat is also referred to as beige or inducible BAT (brown adipose tissue). This type of fat, also known as brown adipose tissue, burns more calories than regular white fats. What enables BAT to do so? It is the higher number of mitochondria present in BAT, which provides an abundance of oxygen for cellular respiration.

The most recent 2018 research showed Cannabinoids receptors’ (CB1 and CB2) involvement in the “Browning” process. The level of BAT activity in the body can significantly impact weight, lipid metabolism and blood glucose level. [10]

CBD along with other cannabinoids is believed to activate certain receptors in our body’s ECS, i.e.: serotonin, CB1, CB2 receptors. This could play a role in critical metabolic functions in our body and weight loss.

What are Weight Loss Sprays and how do they work

A weight loss spray is basically an oral spray infused with active cannabinoids and other weight loss promoting ingredients. It is designed and developed to aid your weight loss. 

You can directly spray it inside your mouth, preferably underneath your tongue. This kind of sublingual administration ensures better absorbability of the active ingredients. Simply because they can reach your bloodstream sublingually (through tiny blood vessels underneath your tongue), without needing them to travel through your digestive system. 

How does oral administration of weight loss spray maximize absorbability? As we just discussed, by not letting the active ingredients reach your stomach. 

Your stomach is acidic and hostile (due to breakdown of the foods you eat and digestion activities). When you swallow any compound, it holds the chances of getting metabolized by your body (resulting in decreased effect of the compound). 

Thus CBD weight loss spray can be more potent and readily bioavailable. And at the same time may help you cut some extra pounds of body weight.

What are the Active Ingredients in a Weight Loss Spray?

CBD weight loss spray is likely to contain other active agents such as: Garcinia Cambogia (extract from a small pumpkin shaped fruit), L-Theanine (a compound found in tea) or even green tea extracts. All these ingredients are beneficial for your weight loss endeavor.

You can find many weight loss products out there in the market. Some may have ingredients that might pose risk of side effects for long term use. But CBD has none of these problems, and is a much safer option in your weight loss spray.

MEDOSI CBD weight loss spray contains hemp derived CBD isolate and Garcinia Cambogia (HCA). Each 30ml bottle comes with 180mg of pure hemp CBD with a serving size of 6 mg per spray. All the products' ingredients are 100% safe and carry no harmful ingredients. 

Bottom Line

Initial studies on CBD and weight loss show promising outcomes, but many of these claims are premature.

Body weight is impacted by diet, physical activity and other factors. While CBD may offer some benefits, it is not a treatment for obesity. CBD in a spray form is intended to supplement an already healthy lifestyle with diet and exercise.

CBD products are not regulated by the FDA in a way that we're familiar with. This can be frustrating because some companies mislabel their products to try and sell them as something they're not, which is misleading for consumers.

But that is not the case with MEDOSI. We only share information that is true to our products. We share helpful blog posts on our site to help you better understand the use and application of various CBD infused products.
