Obesity: The underlying issue and how CBD may help

The World Health Organization (WHO) finds obesity to be a chronic disease, besides being serious and expensive, once it can evolve into type 2 diabetes, heart diseases and even some types of cancer.

To calculate the ideal body weight, we use the Body Mass Index (BMI); a high BMI may indicate high body fat, which translates into overweight or obesity. However, it is necessary to seek medical advice from a specialized professional to determine the diagnosis.

Many factors contribute to the increased obesity, such as the social context, access to information, genetic predisposition, etc. From a health’s perspective, in more technical terms, obesity is caused by the malfunction of the mitochondria, which are basically the powerplant of cells. They are responsible for converting sugar and fat into energy which will then be used by other cell parts. 

When the mitochondria don’t work in an ideal manner, the body absorbs more energy from food causing a buildup of sugar and fat in the bloodstream thus promoting tiredness, lack of energy and other problems. It is necessary to take care of your body from the smallest of its parts.

Recent studies show that the endocannabinoid system works from within the cell, regulating the level of activity of the mitochondria. Working regularly, the endocannabinoid system (ECS) ensures they stay in the right place, if they overproduce energy (producing more than it’s necessary for the body), ECS ensures the production is reduced.

And it was exactly thinking about these benefits that we, from Golden CBD Plus, have released Golden CBD Nano Slim, which contains THCV, a cannabinoid found in small percentage, but that offers a series of benefits such as improving tolerance to glycoses and helping regulate the levels of insulin to stabilize the levels of sugar in the blood.

These theories come from studies led by Institutes such as Harvard Medical School, research groups with their headquarters in California, and even other professionals in the field like the president of Bay Area Pain Medical Associates, Dr Michael Moskowitz.
