There are ways and means to use cannabis oil to treat diabetes, and how you do it is essential. This is because treating diabetes is complex: this is the umbrella term for several diseases which are related to the inefficient production of insulin in the body. How you use cannabis oil to treat diabetes depends on which strain you have and whether you are in it for life or if you can indeed manage and reverse the disease.
Type 1 Diabetes is an autoimmune disease which is usually genetically inherited and can be triggered by a trauma. The immune system attacks the beta cells in the pancreas which secrete insulin. This autoimmune reaction can also be stimulated by chemicals, certain foods which cause allergic reactions, soy, milk or even a virus. Type 1 Diabetes cannot be cured but the patient has to manage the disease for life, injecting insulin every day.
Type 2 Diabetes is caused by a resistance to insulin where the blood sugar levels are far too high. Insulin receptors cannot keep up the production of insulin to manage the high blood glucose so eventually they stop working. But this type of diabetes can be managed and even reversed if the patient changes their lifestyle: stop all processed and junk foods and only eat fresh wholesome foods, exercise daily and sleep well. Obese people are more at risk of getting Type 2 Diabetes so weight management is essential.
The best way to treat diabetes is with cannabis oil which is a natural therapy minus any harmful side effects. Studies are revealing that cannabis oil can treat side effects and symptoms of diabetes. Cannabinoids interact with the body’s innate endocannabinoid system to ensure the body remains in a state of homeostasis, or healthy immune balance. Cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) are the two most commonly used cannabinoids for medical cannabis products. THC may be psychoactive but when it is blended with anti-psychotic CBD in a ratio of more CBD to THC then it loses this psychotic quality and works at healing body and mind. CBD and THC are natural anti-inflammatory, anti-anxiety and anti-depressant medications. CBD can also improve insomnia, appetite, outlook on life and pain in all its forms.
Some doctors are saying that CBD can be used to modulate the immune response so that the autoimmune disease called diabetes can be held back in the early stages. More research is required to justify this finding.
Some studies have shown that CBD can actually slow down and hinder the onset of insulitis, the disease of the pancreas which the develops into diabetes for many people. And the use of cannabis oil as a daily therapy can prevent diabetes thanks to all its innate healthy healing qualities.
