Many individuals find it hard to believe that cannabidiol (CBD) can help assist weight loss because they automatically associate cannabis with the “munchies” and, therefore, assume CBD will increase their appetite.
Research shows that CBD can reduce food intake, while simultaneously treating the symptoms which are typically associated with obesity.
