Frankel runs GreenBridge Medical, which he founded in 2006, like an internist’s office. He begins with a one-hour consult, comes up with a treatment plan, and recommends products for which he designed the formulas: ten oils with different combinations of THC and CBD. (THC gets you high; CBD doesn’t, but is alleged to have strong healing properties) The #1 oil is almost all CBD, #10 is almost all THC, and #5 has equal amounts of both. So the doctor, patient, and dispensary know how many milligrams of what chemicals the patient is taking, and the doctor can adjust the dose as needed.

Hi Alda, I found this article while looking for reasons why my appetite was suppressed and had a feeling it was the CBD I am using. I’ve always been a big guy with a big appetite and now have to force myself to eat and cannot finish large meals like in the past. Hunger no longer controls my life. I started with cbd oil earlier this year in March and now use high CBD low THC (less than .3%) flower in a vaporizer. I went from 275 to 255 since March with no changes in my physical activity. Now that I have my appetite under control I can focus on getting in the gym.


Due to the uniqueness of everyone’s endocannabinoid system, CBD does not affect any two people the same way. There are a host of factors that influence its efficacy, including genetics, previous history of use, general health, weight, ethnicity and so on. Therefore, while one person may find that 15 mg of CBD a day works wonders for suppressing appetite and boosting weight loss, another may require up to 100 mg (or more) in order to achieve the same results (or they may not experience any results at all).
Frankel puts his hand on his heart. “Imagine the pressure!” he says. A complex soul, whose parents survived the Holocaust, Frankel says that when his patients don’t get better, he’s sad and disappointed, and starts to question if he’s wasting people’s time and money. “But then ten people will get better, and I feel… grateful. It makes me confident I’m on the right road, on the right side of history.”
CBD MD offers gummies that contain grade-A premium CBD. The cannabinoid extract is full-spectrum, so it contains other cannabinoids such as CBDV and CBG. This product also contains a variety of molecules, terpenes, essential oils, and amino acids to enhance the flavor and the health-promoting benefits. These gummies are 100 percent organic, non-GMO, vegan, and gluten-free. The CBD used to create them has been sourced from organically grown domestic hemp.

Another marker of obesity and diabetes includes damage to liver cells. The liver is a major organ in the conversion between stored energy forms and useable energy forms in the body. Overburdening that system, such as with high fructose intake, can have disastrous effects. Inflammation within the liver indicates the onset of dysfunction, and possibly non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
He did exhaustive research. He found there’d been decades of scientific studies on the effects of THC and CBD on cells and animals, but few trials with humans, because the FDA classifies cannabis and all its components as Schedule 1 drugs, which have “no accepted medical treatment use.” It took Sue Sisley, an Arizona physician, seven years of struggling with bureaucratic hurdles before she received the first FDA approval for a study, just beginning, of marijuana with vets who have PTSD.
How does CBD oil work? CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system in your body. How taking CBD oil for weight loss works involves this system. CBD stimulates different components in your body to help your body break down more fat, it helps burn more calories all the way down to the cellular level, decreases lipid production, suppresses appetite, and increases your metabolism. Currently, there is still a lot to learn about CBD and weight loss, but the results we’ve seen for far go to show that this is a great option for anyone who needs weight loss help.

Frankel had rarely tried cannabis until he was 49. He was a partner in one of the most successful practices in West Los Angeles and a clinical professor at UCLA Medical School. He’d been my family’s internist for 15 years, and I found him a skilled diagnostician, who listened carefully, and who cared. He had to quit practicing in 2000, after he’d suffered a disabling back injury, then developed a viral infection of the heart and was told he had six months to live. Some of his cancer and AIDS patients urged him to try cannabis. “They did a reverse intervention,” he said, and a year later, his heart was normal. He can’t be certain how or if cannabis healed his heart. “I’d been depressed and CBD stopped the depression,” he said. “It gave me something to look forward to. My brain was turned on.”


I asked if he knew why CBD is so broadly effective. Could it be a gigantic, all-purpose placebo? He shook his head. His theory is that it’s an essential nutrient, like vitamins and amino acids, and when there’s a deficiency of CBD, people get sick. Because CBD brings the body into homeostasis, or balance, it can work in two directions: cutting appetite in people who over-eat, and increasing appetite in those who need to eat more.

Utah company Kanibi is a new player on the CBD scene. They bring scientific precision and a focus on performance to their products. The company offers a pretty limited product selection: an oil tincture and a sports cream. But they lack in variety, they make up for in quality. Every product gets double lab tested, so consumers know exactly how much CBD they’re getting from their purchase.
I’m glad you’ve found help from CBD products, James. I’ve been told by many pros that without any THC, the CBDs are not activated and so you’re essentially not getting hardly any benefit. Or you might need more of the product to get benefit. So I might suggest looking into this and trying a tincture that’s a 20/1 CBD/THC ratio. You won’t feel the THC effects but you’ll get the full benefit the plant has to offer.
When the endocannabinoid system becomes dysregulated, it often becomes overactive and too much fat is being stored, particularly in the intra-abdominal tissue. Cannabidiol is known to regulate the endocannabinoid system as it can restore balance in both directions. Therefore, the study concludes that, along with lifestyle changes cannabis could be a means of fighting obesity.
Scam CBD sellers tend to manufacture low-grade oils via ethanol (or other solvent-based) extraction, in what is little better than trying to do it yourself in your basement. The result is a liquid that contains a little CBD (along with some other cannabinoids and terpenes), but not in the quantities needed to be effective in terms of any legitimate medicinal function. Moreover, these solvent-based extracts can contain unnecessary and potentially harmful components.
Alicia Salazar, a New York state board certified health coach, uses CBD with her clients to maximize their health outcomes. “I don’t look at CBD as a magic bullet for weight loss,” she said. “But CBD along with a healthy diet – one that contains healthy fats, whole grains, grass-fed meat and dairy, and plenty of greens, without processed foods and sugar – sets the tone for a healthy weight. And for some, that can naturally include weight loss.”

Can CBD curb your appetite? Quash anxiety? Protect your heart and brain? Anecdotal evidence for these and other health benefits has created a surge, a potential tsunami of demand for CBD products. While the FDA recently declared CBD an illegal, Schedule 1 drug, it’s being sold in states where medical cannabis is legal, and some companies are shipping it across state lines.
Moreover, the inconsistency (to put it mildly) of the weight loss industry is probably more sketchy and less regulated than the current state of the cannabis industry. Google ‘weight loss scams,’ for instance, and you’ll get 5.76 million search results! There have been some shocking scams over the years, including vibration machines, weight loss pills (containing poisons such as arsenic), and ‘Vision-Dieter Glasses,’ just to name a few. 

But, if you are heavily obese you most probably will start with a much higher dosage. In order to find the right dosage for your situation, you can start with a relatively moderate level and, monitor for two weeks, increase, monitor etc. etc. Start with 60mg a day divided into three (or two) takings and see how much weight you lost during a two-week period.
