In obese people, CB1 receptors tend to spread, especially within fatty tissue. Because of this, researchers think a link may exist between activation of the CB1 receptors and obesity, according to Medical News Today. They also report that CBD works with other cannabinoids to potentially activate receptors that may play a role in weight loss and other metabolic functions. The Reasons CBD May Help With Weight Loss In addition to learning how CBD interacts with receptors, scientists also have connected CBD’s ability to help with a variety of conditions that impact weight loss or gain.
