Humans need to eat in order to live and fortunately CBD can help with that.
It is essential to life because we are living beings. We perish if we don’t. It is as simple as that.
Of course, we all know how much cannabis and marijuana stimulate the appetite- but now cannabidiol(CBD) is also being studied for the same thing.
Here at EDCCA we are super excited about these findings and we want to bring hemp to the forefront of society.
No need to make things more complicated. Our eating preferences and habit may vary from one person to the other but it should essentially be a balanced diet to keep us strong and healthy.
As the world evolves and becomes highly modernized, humans seldom get to eat fresh fruits and veggies anymore but prefer a diet high in junks and sweets.
Adding hemp to your diet(and cannabidiol oil) can help change all of this.
It is more convenient for people who live on the go to have something ready in a snap because time is gold. Fastfood is the preferred food of the public since they no longer have to spend hours cooking homemade meals or stocking on perishable goods that spoil quickly. With canned goods or most food choices made with artificial ingredients, they won’t go bad for years so it is essentially better for your wallet even if your health suffers in the long run.
People that do not use cannabis extracts or hemp products risk certain things about their health that others do not.
And because of our preference for fastfood and sweet treats and drinks, people often find themselves gaining weight sooner than they can lose it. Obesity is a fast-rising phenomenon and it predisposes people to a list of other medical conditions that are detrimental to their health. Another dark side of obesity is how some, especially women and people who think highly of human aesthetics, go to great lengths to remain slim and sexy despite their unhealthy diet.
The Prevalence Of Eating Disorders
People who obsess over their weight or the shape of their body tweak their diets to help them lose fats and stay in shape as they see fit. They end up having eating disorders as they never feel satisfied with their bodies.
Anorexia is one of those conditions people have in their quest to have the perfect body image. People from all walks of life have eating disorders because of unhealthy eating practices that leave them stick-thin in order to satiate their desire to look slim, lean, and appealing to the eyes of other people. They usually do not see anything wrong with the way they starve themselves because for them, their body image is what’s most important rather than simply staying healthy.
What Is Anorexia?
Known medically as Anorexia Nervosa, individuals with Anorexia have a distorted body image where they see themselves on the heavier side even if they are super thin. They work out like there is no tomorrow and starve themselves all the time until they get sick, and in worst cases, death may be inevitable. Those with eating disorders aside from anorexia all obsess over the following things:
• Body weight
• Compensatory behavior
• Obsession with body weight and shape
• Distorted body image
• Affective disturbance
Why CBD For Anorexia?
Fortunately, commercial CBD oil products have been found to help with various conditions just like Epidiolex(which has primarily been used for epilepsy but is now being studied for eating disorders as well).
The folks over at www.cbdoilaustralian.com.au/ have been producing CBD oil liquids that are of the highest-grade and can be used in such situations.
This is because cannabidiol has a wide range of benefits that people with eating disorders like anorexia can benefit from.
Below we talk about the huge array of different symptoms that an anorexic person may have and the corresponding benefits that CBD provides to them.
COA’s new Daylight® CBD Oil Tincture is really getting popular among EDCCA’s readers because of its great taste and ability to “stimulate the appetite” which is something eating disorders lessen.
This company has also published an article all about how to recover from severe fatigue by using Modafinil here.
Anorexia is a psychological disorder that triggers changes in the brain, where most of those changes happen in the endocannabinoid system that also affects a person’s appetite. CBD is one of the 80 cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. It helps with anorexia by counteracting the effects of THC aside from having relatively very little side effects. Experts discovered that anorexia relates to a deficiency in the endocannabinoid system. This deficiency is addressed by CBD such as CBD oil or extracts that are sold widely nowadays. Along with therapy, a person can successfully get over an eating disorder over time.
The endocannabinoid system regulates different body processes known as homeostasis, which ensures chemicals work the way they should be. But for people with eating disorders, this balance is lost but it is a good thing that CBD is here to the rescue. Here are some ways CBD oil actually helps beat anorexia or other eating disorders:
Anorexic people are undeniably depressed. Statistics say that 1 out of 5 people with anorexia take their lives away according to the University of Maryland Medical Center. Therapy alone will take a while to work and prescription medicines also have a lot of side effects. Experts agree that CBD acts similar to antidepressants without any hassle on your side.
The extreme anxiety felt by individuals with body image issues often feels they badly need to stay skinny, afraid of getting fat and always feeling insecure about the way they look. CBD can ease your fears and anxiety by regulating chemical levels in your brain to keep you feeling sane and rational.
Hemp extracts and cannabis tinctures are great ways to combat fear and anxiety.
People who frequently starve themselves usually don’t have the appetite to start eating again even after therapy has started. All the food you eat are tasteless and does not appeal to your taste buds so it is hard for you to get back to your normal weight. CBD enables your body to have a healthy appetite again without you constantly worrying about becoming overweight since cannabidiol can help convert the food you eat into burnable energy.
It is also a general public knowledge that CBD stimulates the appetite, exactly what you want to achieve in order to beat whatever eating disorder you have. CBD essentially jumpstarts your metabolism. You can lessen the guilt you feel after every meal once you start taking/ using cannabis by choosing more nutritious food options. You may think differently but consuming foods rich in healthy fats like avocado, nuts and seeds, veggies in nut butter, etc. because they are also natural sources of omega-3 fatty acids that can be used or metabolized by the body aside from being good for the heart too.
If you have an eating disorder, you may find pleasure at the thought of eating once more because of the boost in dopamine levels brought about by your CBD intake. This feel-good neurotransmitter goes up when you eat, making you feel good about food again.
Since eating disorders often start as a psychological issue, CBD will gradually help you relax and feel better about yourself once more just the way you are. Your mood improves and your perspective about yourself is no longer hypercritical. Along with CBD, try these other treatments that can make you overcome an eating disorder before this condition consumes you:
• Mindfulness meditation
• Recovery coaching
• Exposure to positive media (body positivity message etc.)
It is not an easy road ahead but recovery won’t happen if you don’t do something about it. Your body needs nourishment so stop seeing food as an enemy. Take on the journey to recovery with CBD on your side.
