CBD and another compound found within cannabis called THCV (Tetrahydrocannabivarin) have been found to assist in weight loss through appetite suppression, as well as helping boost your metabolism. This may be very surprising, as one of the more well-known effects of consuming cannabis is the dreaded ‘munchies’ — for those that aren’t familiar with cannabis culture lingo, this means the uncontrollable desire to stuff your face with food (usually the kind that is high in calories). So it’s funny that two of the compounds found within cannabis, CBD along with THCV, have shown to increase metabolism of fat cells in animal models of obesity.
Associate professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School, Murray Mittleman said of cannabis smokers that “their fasting insulin levels were lower, and they appeared to be less resistant to the insulin produced by their body to maintain a normal blood-sugar level,” a fact that seems to indicate that cannabinoids can help stave off Type II Diabetes.
So when it comes to obesity and impotence, constituents of cannabis could be the answer to help lower body weight and bring you back to a healthy weight. Could CBD oil for male impotency be a far healthier option than other weight loss alternatives? We believe it shows great potential.
