Will CBD Oil Break my Fast?

So you have chose to do some kind of fasting 5:2 or 16:8 or maybe even a 24H water fast. Maybe you are on your 72H monthly water fast! You could be doing this either for health reasons, religious reasons, longevity  or to lose weight. Now you are standing there wanting to take your daily CBD oil, because you have learnt that consistency enhances the effect of the CBD oil, and are wondering if those little golden drops will break your fast? 

What happens when we fast?

Whether you are fasting or not, the body still needs energy. Even if you were laying in a bed all day, you still need energy to breathe and live. The bodys primary energy source is a sugar called glucose, which usually comes from carbohydrates, including grains, fruits, beans, and even sweets.

Your liver and muscles store the glucose and release it into the bloodstream whenever the your body needs it.

However, during fasting, this process changes. After about 8 hours of fasting, your liver will use the last of its glucose reserves. At this point, the body enters into a state called gluconeogenesis, making the body’s transition into fasting mode.

Benefits of fasting!

Dr. Jason Fung says it as it is: “Starvation literally means starvation. It doesn’t mean skipping a meal or not eating for 24 hours. Or not eating for three days even. The belief that meal skipping or short-term fasting causes “starvation mode” is so completely ridiculous and absurd that it makes me want to jump out the window”. Jason Fung is one of the leading doctors when it comes to fasting, IF, and diabetes – and have studied the benefits of fasting for a decade.The-real-cbd-blog-will-cbd-oil-break-my-fast-life-is-beautiful

Will CBD Oil break my fast?

The general thumb rule is that if you stay under 50 calories, then you’ll remain in the fasted state. So the simple answer is NO – CBD oil will not break your fast unless you drink the whole bottle. But as you are only dripping a few droops under the tongue, you will be way under the 50 calories.
