Could Compounds In Cannabis Help Treat Diabetes?

CBD is developing a great reputation for helping with many diseases and disorders. But,
for diabetes, the multiple ways it can help is impressive, such as the following favourable
results stemming from possible treatments for diabetes in the form of cannabis:

  • Works to stabilize a person’s blood sugars
  • Reduces pain often associated with diabetes caused by nerve inflammation,
    called neuropathy, by activating the receptors found in the brain and body
  • Acts as an anti-inflammatory to help reduce some of the known arterial
    inflammation that is found in many diabetics
  • Aids in improving circulation by keeping blood vessels open
  • Helps to relieve muscle cramping and gastrointestinal
    disorders by acting as an anti-spasmodic agent
  • Helps to gradually reduce blood pressure,
    which is very important for diabetic patients
  • Using cannabis oil or butter in foods, rather than traditional
    fats, could be beneficial to the heart and arteries
  • Used in a vaporizer, cannabis oil can help calm restless leg
    syndrome, a common ailment of diabetic patients.

    Making it into a topical cream to help diminish neuropathic pain, as well as common
    tingling in the feet and hands, is also another way to use cannabis oil.

    As with all available treatments, there is conflicting evidence on the role cannabis oil takes for prevention of Type II Diabetes.
    However, research does show it to be beneficial as an effective and alternative treatment for those
    who have already been diagnosed with either Type I and Type II Diabetes.


  • Cannabis compounds could help to control a patient’s blood sugar
  • Users of cannabis are less likely to become obese

    Both above benefits are important in a diabetic patient, either a current or a future one.
