America has a severe sugar obsession. According to the US Department of Health and Human Services, most adults in the USA eat at least 150 pounds of sugar annually. To put that into perspective, imagine chugging a three-pound bag of sugar each week. Pretty gross, right? 

While more people know the dangers of a high-sugar diet, it can be challenging to combat the dreaded “sugar cravings.” If your body is so used to a mid-day “sugar fix,” it’s going to take time and discipline to reduce this sweet ingredient. 

However, some customers suggest CBD could help decrease the severity of sugar cravings. So, if you’re struggling to tame your sweet tooth, you may want to add some Tribe CBD oil to your diet. 

How Does CBD Work For Sugar Cravings? 

There are a few ways CBD may help eliminate sugar cravings, but they all revolve around the endocannabinoid system (ECS). This interesting bodily system consists of countless cannabinoid receptors and natural compounds called “endocannabinoids.” 

The ECS seems to be involved in dozens of bodily processes, including appetite. Some researchers now believe ECS dysfunction may make people more susceptible to obesity or poor dietary habits. Why? When the ECS is healthy, it seems to promote a sense of balance. On the flip side, an unbalanced ECS can make us more prone to overeat. 

Although there are no studies on CBD for sugar cravings, many studies suggest CBD can enhance the production of compounds like anandamide and serotonin. Both of these chemicals are involved in appetite and mood regulation.

Speaking of mood, please remember that CBD has natural anti-anxiety properties. Many clinical trials suggest CBD can reduce stress better than placebos. So, if people feel anxious about skipping their daily “sugar rush,” CBD may help settle their nerves. 

Wait, But Doesn’t CBD Make You Crave Junk Food? 

No, you don’t have to worry about CBD giving you the “munchies.” This common side effect is related to the psychoactive cannabinoid THC rather than CBD. Since the THC concentration in Tribe CBD oil is always ≤ 0.3 percent THC, you aren’t going to feel intense hunger after downing a dropperful of our CBD. 

However, there’s some evidence that CBD may have slight anti-nausea properties. This won’t make you feel “hungry,” but it may improve your appetite if you’re suffering from nausea-related conditions. 

It’s also worth mentioning that CBG shows excellent potential as an all-natural anti-nausea therapy. If you want to learn more about this non-intoxicating hemp cannabinoid, please check out Tribe CBD’s new CBG capsules
