Cannabis is good for Diabetes ?????

Possible benefits of cannabis

However, some studies, albeit animal-based ones, in recent years have highlighted a number of potential health benefits of cannabis for diabetics.

A research paper published by the American Alliance for Medical Cannabis (AAMC) suggested that cannabis can help:

Stabilise blood sugars - a large body of anecdotal evidence is building among diabetics to support this.

Suppress some of the arterial inflammation commonly experienced by diabetics, which can lead to cardiovascular disease

Prevent nerve inflammation and ease the pain of neuropathy - the most common complication of diabetes - by stimulating receptors in the body and brain.

Lower blood pressure over time, which can help reduce the risk of heart disease and other diabetes complications

Keep blood vessels open and improve circulation.

Relieve muscle cramps and the pain of gastrointestinal (GI) disorders

Be used to make topical creams to relieve neuropathic pain and tingling in hands and feet

Sounds good but is it not psychotic drug.?Getting a prescription for these drugs may be difficult and there is lways the danger of getting addicted.


Has it been established that diabetes does not have psychotic foundation? (Yes addiction could be an issue if the addictive element is not managed in the drug made from cannabis)


IN homeopathy we use Cannabis for many psychosomatic symtoms , It is also given for relieving from pains whether physical or mental . It is some times given in insomnia .Of course ,when triturated and potentised it looses it's original addictive element.


cannabis sativa is ganja, cannabis indica is bhang. Somke of the former is normally inhaled. Latter is ground and taken with milk and almonds.


Get addicted and forget about every thing including diabetes.very good suggestion.
