The weightloss industry is a multibillion-dollar industry. Countless gyms, diets, retreats, products, and even online programs — there’s no shortage of resources in how to lose weight. Weight loss in western culture is considered the mecca of overall health and wellness. Society has told us for years that losing weight is a good thing. When we hear a comment about how our weight loss, it’s considered a compliment. It shows that we are taking charge of our wellness.
So, where does cannabis fit in weight loss?
As nations across the globe start to see cannabis as a beneficial substance, weed has become the number one holistic method in overall wellness. But when it comes to losing weight, some consumers may have a hard time believing this to be true. With the help of movies and media, people have become aware of the most common side-effect of cannabis: they’re called the munchies. Usually, after people smoke weed, their hunger, and appetite increase causing users to want to eat or munch on food which contributes to weight gain. This side-effect has been beneficial for users prescribed medicinal cannabis for health issues like anorexia and eating disorders.
If this side effect is widely known, how would it even contribute to losing weight?
Research shows how CBD activates receptors in the brain and central nervous system, which may result in a loss of appetite. While there’s little factual evidence on whether cannabis can help with weightloss, there are companies that see the potential for cannabis in the weight loss industry. One of them is SUNMED, one of the largest CBD retailers in the United States. In October of 2021, SUNMED released their latest and most innovative product in Your CBD Store. It’s called TRIM by SUMMED, and it’s been labelled as the first CBD weight loss product line ever created.
“Your CBD Store is committed to bringing new and innovative products to our customers consistently, backed by extensive research to plant science,” said Marcus Quinn, founder of Your CBD Store. “Our customers are at the heart of all product development, and we believe that TRIM by SUNMED™ fills a major void that has existed in the marketplace, using natural weight loss remedies as opposed to harsh stimulants, allowing hemp to do the work.”
A holistic way to encourage weightloss
Natural herbs and remedies for wellness and weight loss have been around for generations. Research shows that the most commonly used herbs in weight loss formulations are herbs like chamomile, peppermint, licorice, and even rhubarb. Yet as time went by and diet pills and pharmaceuticals became the popular choice, natural remedies were thrown by the wayside. Now with the cultural shift and people becoming more aware of what they put into their bodies, holistic remedies have made a unique comeback in today’s culture. This makes for health companies like SUNMED and Your CBD Store hoping in bringing consumers back to natural herbs.
“We are excited
to continue our path as a disruptor, leaning heavily on research and science to
introduce new products that truly enhance the lives of our customers,” said Dr.
Anthony Ferrari, chief science officer of Your CBD Store. “This natural
approach to weight loss has many added benefits such as anti-inflammation, deeper
and longer sleep as well as a reduction in pain, depression, and anxiety.”
It’s safe to say that natural and holistic remedies like CBD, it’s opened doors for people in a whole new way. While CBD and hemp are awesome alternatives, it’s important to note that research is still being discovered. When it comes to starting a new health regimen, it’s always best to consult with your doctor or physician before taking on anything new.
