Type 1 diabetes used to be called juvenile-onset or insulin-dependent diabetes – 5 to 10 out of 100 people have this diabetes. The body attacks its own cells that produce insulin, which ultimately eradicates the insulin in the body. Now the cells can no longer absorb sugar or glucose which they need to make energy. Children tend to show symptoms and get very sick from sudden high blood sugar. They can also get very low blood sugar and this diabetes cannot be prevented.
During Type 2 diabetes (once called adult-onset or non-insulin-dependent diabetes), adults usually get symptoms of the body not being able to use insulin the way it should. This insulin resistance can worsen until the pancreas makes less and less insulin and there is then an insulin deficiency. The patient does not get low blood sugar, but this disease can be reversed and prevented. Stick to a healthy lifestyle and balanced diet – exercise and fresh healthy foods are the answer.
How Can Cannabis Oil Benefit Diabetes?
Cannabinoids help manage blood sugars and to maintain a healthy weight. These chemical compounds speed up the metabolism. In recent studies, people who took cannabis oil were less resistant to the insulin produced by their body and could maintain balanced blood sugars. They could metabolise carbohydrates better and were slimmer. CBD is a natural anti-inflammatory therefore ideal for people with diabetes 2. It can also successfully treat eye issues such as glaucoma, insomnia and pain – all linked to diabetes. Always check blood glucose levels to avoid hypoglycaemia.
Cannabis Therapy suggested treatment guidelines:
Panacea THC/CBD tincture and the patient can take 5 drops twice daily (morning and night).
