For many centuries, cannabis has been used as a painkiller or a method to lift your spirits and improve appetite. The results of a new study show that it has a positive effect on blood sugar levels, and therefore can potentially be used in diabetes treatment.
Studies have shown that injections of tetrahydrocannabivarin increase the sensitivity of cells to insulin, as well as increase the activity and duration of the beta cells of the pancreas, which produce the specified hormone.
In the course of research, it has been proven that regular intake of cannabidiol can improve resistance to diabetic retinopathy (reduced visual acuity and even blindness). In other studies, it was found that cannabidiol reduces diabetic weakening of the heart muscle, has vasodilating properties and alleviates neuropathic pain.
CBD oil stabilizes blood sugar levels, helps reduce arterial inflammation, improves blood circulation, relieves neuropathic pain, and helps with diabetic “Restless walking syndrome” (RWS).
A recent study conducted in clinical hemorheology and microcirculation has shown that CBD helps to reduce inflammation of the pancreas in type 1 diabetes. So far, there is no cure for diabetes based on CBD, but it is clear that there are all prerequisites for its creation.
