What causes obesity overweight?

Gaining and holding excess weight can be caused by a variety of circumstances. Diet, lack of exercise, environmental circumstances, and heredity are among them. More information on the causes of overweight and obesity may be found at the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute.

  • Food and exercise: When people consume more calories than they expend via physical exercise, they acquire weight. The main factor in weight gain is this imbalance.
  • Genetics: Obesity is linked to genetics, according to research. Obesity can be caused directly by genes in conditions like Prader-Willi syndrome. Genes also could play a role in a person’s weight gain tendency. Studies suggest that while genes may enhance a person’s risk of obesity, other circumstances, such as an ample food supply or insufficient physical exercise, may also be necessary for obesity.
  • Medications and medical conditions: Obesity can be caused by hormonal issues such as hypothyroidism, Cushing syndrome, or polycystic ovarian syndrome. Certain medications, such as corticosteroids, antidepressants, and seizure medications, can also induce weight gain.
  • Stress, emotional factors, and lack of sleep: Stress, emotional factors, and a lack of sleep are all factors that contribute to poor sleep. When bored, irritated, stressed, Or disturbed some people eat more than normal. According to studies, the much less sleep people get, the more presumably they are to be obese or overweight. This is due to the fact that hormones generated during sleep aid in the regulation of hunger and energy expenditure.

5 top CBD strains for weight loss

# 1 – Harle-Tsu

Harle-Tsu is a harmonious blend of two high-CBD parents, Harlequin and Sour Tsunami, which is a strain that does not stimulate hunger unduly. This strain has a strong CBD profile with very low THC, making it an excellent choice for anybody looking for the soothing and medicinal properties of marijuana without the euphoria or psychosis.

#2 – Cannatonic

Cannatonic is a high-CBD strain that soothes the body while freeing the mind to concentrate. It’s similar to the highly sought-after ACDC hybrid. Cannatonic contains a 2:1 CBD: THC ratio, which means you won’t experience much in the way of a euphoria or hunger.

#3 – Charlotte’s Web

Charlotte’s Web, another prominent high-CBD strain, includes around 13% CBD, less than 1% THC, and a CBD: THC ratio of 30:1.

#4 – Ringo’s Gift

This high-CBD cultivar has 11–15 percent CBD, 1% THC, and has a typical CBD: THC ratio of 13:1 — however strains with a ratio as high as 24:1 have been discovered.

It usually gives you a peaceful sensation of relaxation that starts in your mind and goes throughout your body, but it doesn’t have a sedative or “sofa lock” effect (when you practically melt into the couch and can’t fight back).

It is said to help with anxiety, eating disorder, PTSD, migraines, pain alleviation, sleep, PCOS and other issues. Ringo’s Gift includes pine, citrus, mint, and spice aromas.

# 5 – Remedy

Some people compare Remedy to a cup of herbal tea because of its pleasant, flowery overtones.

Wrap up

In our opinion, the answer is yes, especially when it comes to the long-term effects.
