ARE YOU WONDERING WHAT CBD IS?
CBD or Cannabidiol is one of over 85 cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant and is the main active compound in hemp. When consumed, CBD does not produce the psychoactivity typically associated with majuana products and high THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol).
Your body actually naturally produces cannabinoid receptors – CB1 and CB2. The CBD you take can activate and assist the body’s receptors. When these receptors are activated, the body’s overall performance is boosted.

FACTORS AROUND WEIGHT LOSS AND CBD OIL
In my article “Your Mood and Weight Loss“, it was mentioned when our bodies are under stress, the hormone, cortisol, is released. When that happens, instead of reaching for the healthy things to eat, we reach for fatty, sugary foods.
In conjunction with the previously mentioned article, in “How to Be Patient With Weight Loss“, I discussed how getting adequate rest is extremely important because of the body’s perception of lack of sleep. When we don’t get enough sleep, the body perceives it as stress.
Therefore, you will see in these two articles alone, how stress plays such an important role in weight loss.
Also, many topics around metabolism are within this site. Metabolism has a huge affect on weight loss.
