What is your current weight?

As of August 14, 2020, I weigh 263.6 pounds. That is a loss of 106.4 pounds.

Were you worried about the cost when you started taking CBD?

I was not. After so many years over 400 pounds, the $67.50 per month I was committing to this experiment (our mints costs less than that) seemed like a bargain if it worked. Also, I had tried several different weight loss programs some of which were astronomically higher than that, with no long term results.

I track all of my expenses and ran some reports in my financial software. What I found was interesting…

  • Looking at groceries and dining, comparing the year before I started taking my mints with the year after, I am saving an average of $355.47 per month.
  • In 2019, I spent $692 on my mints, but I had to spend $1,789 on new clothes. That is the real cost of weight loss. I did not resent it though. Plus, with the food savings, I still saved money overall.
Does CBD make you hungry? Does CBD cause weight gain? Does CBD increase appetite?

This question comes up because marijuana is well known to increase appetite. However, CBD does not increase hunger. Personally, I have very little appetite when I take CBD.

CBD is used to treat anxiety. A relatively small number of people that have anxiety also have trouble eating. For those people, successfully treating anxiety might result in weight gain.

Are your mints really magic?

Of course not. I do sometimes refer to these as my magic mints. The “magic” came from discussions with my wife when I started taking the mints. They worked so fast and helped my anxiety so much that they seemed like magic to me. It is also an ironic reference to the sales techniques used by various hucksters to sell phony diets and weight loss products. Quick weight loss scams are replete with magic pills and powders, one weird trick and other gimmicks. The truth is, if you are ever going to permanently lose weight, you have to figure out why you eat too much and work on that. For me, that was treating my anxiety. 

How does CBD feel?
CBD, unlike marijuana, does not produce a “high” or intoxicating feeling. When I take it, I only notice that my anxiety and appetite go away. Others report a general sense of well being. I have read it described by one person as “Tylenol for your feelings.”

Find your Calm

CBD affects everyone differently. But studies have shown that CBD may help increase concentration, maintain healthy stress levels and reduce the desire to “stress eat”. CBD does not make you feel high, just calm.
