Active into the new year with CBD
Every year we start the new year with good intentions. Surveys have shown that about every third person rings in the new year with good intentions. Whether more active, less stressful, or more adventurous – the focus of New Year’s resolutions is primarily on mental and physical well-being.
Often the words gain or lose weight are mentioned in this context, but we do not want to support socially constructed ideals of beauty or unhealthy eating behavior, quite the opposite: We want to show how CBD, of course, in addition to a healthy diet, can contribute to the individual feel-good weight and support both physical and mental health.
TW: Eating disorder
CBD for stress relief
Privately or professionally – we all often wish for a break from the eternal stress, and especially in today’s fast-paced world, coming to rest and relaxing is a welcomed guest in everyone’s mind. The causes of stress are wide-ranging and affect everyone differently – but it is clear that a prolonged increase in adrenaline levels, which can be caused by stress, is often accompanied by negative consequences. This includes insomnia, for example. Furthermore, psychological stress can also have negative effects on physical health, for example, it can influence eating behavior. Of course, it must be noted that stress cannot be considered in isolation as the cause of unhealthy eating behavior or eating disorders; these are usually triggered by various factors occurring at the same time, but stress often plays a part. On the one hand, increased stress levels can lead to loss of appetite, and on the other, to eating disorders such as binge-eating and night-eating syndrome. To get to the root of the problem, stress levels can be lowered preventively. Here, the endocannabinoid system (ECS) plays a major role, as it can have a positive effect on the so-called homeostasis, the inner balance, and maintain it. The intake of CBD supports the ECS in this function and can consequently lead to a more relaxed mood.
CBD for a more active everyday life
Besides the relaxing, CBD can also have an activating effect. As already described in our article about CBD& Sport, besides serotonin and dopamine, among others, endocannabinoids also have an influence on the feelings of happiness that fill our body during exercise and sport.
CBD for a healthy metabolism
Metabolism in our body in general – as the name suggests – is responsible for the conversion of substances, among other things for energy gain. If this process is inhibited or overloaded, this can lead to the deposition of white fat cells and have negative effects on health in the long term. CBD can play a supporting role in this process, as researchers at Daegu University in South Korea have found. By taking CBD, proteins that drive white fat cells can be stimulated, the activity of mitochondria, which are responsible for the conversion into energy, can be promoted and the production of proteins that support the production of fat cells can be inhibited.
