The impact of marijuana use on glucose, insulin, and insulin resistance among US adults. [Am J Med. 2013] - PubMed - NCBI

Sometimes I just want to hold my head and weep at the terrible suffering caused by marijuana prohibition (pretty much every day). I'm looking at a study and it really is clear that using marijuana is one of the best things a diabetic can do for their health. The cannabinoids in marijuana seem to protect the pancreatic insulin-producing cells and improve glucose metabolism. Diabetics need marijuana products, NOW! They don't have time to wait for big pharma to produce an over-priced cannabis treatment. Start telling your diabetic friends and family to support legalization so that they can grow their best medicine, after insulin, for free and make it into tincture, oil or capsules.
