When it comes to debilitating diseases, diabetes comes close to being one of the top killers in the country. According to statistics, about 30 million Americans suffer from diabetes – that's at least one out of ten people. This deadly disease has caused or contributed to the death of at least 250,000 people in 2015 alone.
Diabetes, also known as diabetes mellitus in the medical world, is a group of different kinds of metabolic problems that involve the person having high amounts of glucose and a shortage of insulin, an enzyme used to break down glucose for metabolic purposes. Common symptoms include frequent urination, a constant need for hydration, and increased hunger. There are three types of diabetes: type 1 (body is unable to produce insulin), type 2 (body produces insufficient amounts of insulin), and gestational diabetes (happens exclusively to pregnant women).
Most people don't understand the impact of diabetes. You've probably heard about people with diabetes having to take insulin shots and switching to sugar-free products, but that's just the tip of the iceberg. Diabetes has such a significant effect on the entire human body that it can completely change a person's daily routine. Increased tension, abdominal pains, lethargy, and other symptoms are a constant problem for people suffering from this disease.
Because of the daily struggle experienced by people with diabetes, many of them are always looking for ways to make their life a bit easier. One of the most interesting options is cannabis or marijuana. How can such a plant be a viable option for people with diabetes?
Cannabis oil is a form of extract from the cannabis plant or hemp. It contains high amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). These two compounds are very similar to the cannabinoids found in the endocannabinoid system, which is responsible for controlling certain factors in the body such as metabolism, sleep patterns, pain sensation, and even muscle tension.
There are plenty of ways to consume cannabis oil to treat diabetes type 1, but the most recommended method is by infusing it into food, usually some type of bread or tea. Cannabis oil can also be mixed with creams to create a topical ointment. Another popular method is by smoking it, as a joint, blunt, or using a water pipe or bong.
Most scientists agree that application methods that involve cannabis oil are safer than smoking dried weed. This is mainly because the smoke can cause respiratory allergies when it enters the lungs. Suffice to say, smoking using water pipes should only be done by more experienced cannabis users.
For those who want everything but the psychoactive effects of cannabis, there are also efforts on producing medications that contain only CBD, a non-psychoactive cannabinoid. But until then, using cannabis oil is still the most recommended option.
Research And Studies Show That Cannabis May Be Able To Help With Diabetes
Cannabis has many properties that make it one of the best substances that a person suffering from diabetes can take. Here are just a few examples of how cannabis oil for diabetes benefits regular users.
Perhaps one of the best parts about consuming cannabis is that a person without diabetes can still benefit from the plant’s anti-diabetic effects. This makes cannabis an effective preventive measure for avoiding diabetes, and as we all know: prevention is better than cure.
Although there have already been scientific tests that indicate cannabis as an effective substance for treating diabetes, the US Food and Drug Administration has yet to recognize cannabis as a "safe and effective drug" for any condition. However, as more and more states become open to the use of marijuana and as scientific research reveals more of the effects of cannabis on treating certain diseases, it may be just a matter of time before cannabis becomes a mainstream option for diabetes patients.
