You’ve likely heard of the benefits of medical marijuana for depression, anxiety, and pain, but did you know it can be used for weight loss as well? At Laser Skin and Wellness, we can help you finally lose those final pounds.

How Does Medical Marijuana Work?

A few studies have been done over the past decade that show a correlation between cannabis or medical marijuana and weight loss. Additionally, at least one study showed that those who didn’t use cannabis actually had higher rates of obesity compared to those who used it at least three times a week.

Another study showed that cannabis users tended to have lower BMIs than those who didn’t use. More specifically, it’s CBD, the chemical found in marijuana, that affects the body and brain in a way that can lead to weight loss. But how often do you need to use it? Studies have shown that weekly or biweekly use of medical marijuana is good enough for a significant reduction in BMI.

How does it work exactly? It’s through the way CBD reacts to the body’s endocannabinoid system. The system has two cannabinoid receptors, CB1 and CB2. CBD works with cannabinoids to activate these receptors, as well as the serotonin receptors in the brain. This activation can reduce appetite.

The CB1 receptor antagonist in marijuana may help reduce appetite and control obesity because it blocks off the receptor. On top of that, marijuana stimulates the CB2 receptor, and when that occurs, there is a reduction in inflammation and food intake. THC is often associated with stimulated appetite, but there is little evidence that CBD has the same effect.

While marijuana regulates the body’s metabolism, it is also dependent on the ratio of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids coming from the person’s diet, so don’t think you can forgo a healthy diet as well. A healthy lifestyle is still necessary to lose weight.

How Does Medical Marijuana Work for Weight Loss?

Medical marijuana for weight loss will treat the whole body, allowing you to burn fat and lose weight. The weight loss is not limited to one part of the body.

About Your Treatment

Your medical marijuana treatment for weight loss at Laser Skin and Wellness will depend on your exact needs. How much you need to take and how often you should take it will be determined by your provider. They will look over your medical history, medications, and overall health and then build you a specific treatment plan.

There are a few specific medical marijuana strains that work particularly well for weight loss, and they include Green Crack, Super Silver Haze, and Durban Poison. They contain high amounts of CBD, which promotes weight loss.

How long you’ll need to take medical marijuana for weight loss will depend on your weight loss goals.

Results & Recovery

There is no downtime with medical marijuana use. After you first use marijuana, you’ll want to look out for any side effects and let your provider know if any of them are affecting your everyday life. But beyond that, any side effects should dissipate relatively quickly, and you can go about your normal routine immediately.

Your weight loss results will likely start to show up in three to four weeks, but it will depend on your diet and exercise habits.

Who is a good candidate?

Almost everyone is a good candidate for medical marijuana for weight loss. As long as you’re in good health, have not had a bad reaction to marijuana in the past, and are looking to lose weight, you’re likely a great candidate for medical marijuana treatment.
