CBD for Diabetics

With over 1.5 million individuals in the U.S. being diagnosed each year, diabetes rates are occurring at an unprecedented level. Over 30 million Americans are already currently diagnosed with diabetes and another 80 million have pre-diabetes, meaning that it’s likely that, without intervention, they’ll be diagnosed with type 2 diabetes sometime within a five year period.

As a result, more and more Americans are turning to CBD as a solution for diabetes treatment. Recent studies have shown that CBD may benefit diabetics in various ways, in terms of both treating the disease itself and providing relief from the associated symptoms, many of which are severe enough to be debilitating and interfere with daily activities.

CBD has gained popularity as a diabetes treatment method because, unlike prescription drugs, there are no negative side effects. CBD is a naturally occurring compound and is safe to use for individuals of all ages, including adults, children, and seniors.

CBD as a Treatment Method for Diabetes

While there is still much that has yet to be discovered about the exact effects of CBD on diabetes, the research that has been conducted shows incredible promise. Studies carried out by the American Alliance for Medical Cannabis have shown that CBD may be able to help diabetics in the following manner:

 

Balances blood sugar levels: CBC may be able to stabilize blood sugar levels by regulating the production of catecholamines and glucocorticoids.

Reduces inflammation: Many diabetics suffer from neuropathy as a result of their disease, a serious condition which causes pain and numbness in the limbs. CBD is thought to be neuroprotective, which allows it to protect nerve coverings from inflammatory attacks. CBD also shows promise in its ability to prevent inflammation from occurring in the first place, which helps to promote arterial functions.

Improves blood circulation: CBD is a vasodilator, which means it works naturally to keep the blood vessels open and encourage blood flow. This can help keep blood pressure levels low, which is important for diabetes management.

Promotes arterial and cardiac health: CBD oil can be used as a substitute for butter in cooking. Eating in a healthier manner can help improve arterial and cardiac health for diabetics.

Pain relief: Applying CBD oil or cream directly to areas that are affected by neuropathy, such as the hands and feet, may help provide relief from pain.

How CBD Treatments Reduces Inflammation

Inflammation is a response caused by our body’s immune system. When our bodies become injured or infected, our immune systems immediately try to remedy the situation. Inflammation is one of the body’s many ways of healing itself.

There are two types of inflammation: acute and chronic. Acute, or short-lasting, inflammation is considered to be useful while chronic inflammation can lead to disease such as lung issues, heart disease, diabetes, etc.

Since the endocannabinoid system regulates immune system response, controlling this system is an important part of treating chronic inflammation. Many studies indicate that cannabidiol products may be useful in this effort.

Research shows that CBD products may help return the endocannabinoid system back to homeostasis when it falls out of balance, thus regulating the associated bodily functions, including immune system response. Regulating the body’s immune system may help reduce levels of inflammation and eliminate the negative side effects caused by this disease.
