    Combined with cell therapy, any diabetic has no excuse for having diabetes. The cure is staring you right in the face! Read my lips…do something to help yourself and stop listening to the white coat drug pushers.

      Actually, Doug H. I have done a lot of research in this department and she is correct. The human body is equipped with a large amount of Cannabinoid receptors, three of which are located in the pancreas. This allows the the Cannabinoids in the Marijuana plant to activate the pancreas. This may be something that could be very helpful in Diabetic control.

        @ Michael….I never disagreed with anyone. Who is “she”???? I merely commented on the fact that when used adjunctively, cannabis and cell therapy work hand in hand. That’s all. They both work wonders and when combined, the natural healing powers are increased exponentially in many cases.

      There are two types of Diabetes. Type 2, which I would assume you are referring to is possible to be cured of by eating right and exercising. Type 1, or juvenile diabetes, which is strictly insulin dependent, as in, the pancreas simply stops producing insulin altogether, cannot be cured by eating right and exercising. I have type 1, and have for a long time, and would be so very happy to find that this study on cannabis is true. Diabetes sucks, but much more when the option to cure oneself isn’t even available.

      Okayy Doug, but how many doctor’s are really helping Diabetic patients and giving them this “so-called” cure? None. And yes, I have heard that in other countries they’re already curing it but the U.S. won’t come out with the cure because they make too much money off of Diabetic supplies! Hell, 1 month supply of insulin costs nearly $200. All I am saying is that I’ve been a t1d for almost 6 years and I love marijuana so, it’s coincidental for someone like myself who can actually benefit from being high. And I strongly believe that the day that they legalize marijuana, that people will really see that it is a good drug. It’s not addictive. It’s only addictive to people who are stupid and think that they have to have it. I’ve been smoking it for almost 8 years and I could quit tomorrow. Now, coke or crack or heroin, those are bad. and addictive. and you usually die from them. No one has ever died from marijuana. I know that there have been ppl who have died under the influence of it but that was because of that person’s dumb decision to do something stupid. This is actually the first thing I’ve seen about how pot benefits diabetics and after reading this, I just want to go smoke a joint! So, go ahead and bash on it all you want but people with serious medical conditions really rely on it to help them. I know I do now. (:

      Hey Doug, do you have Type 1 diabetes and have you had this Stem Cell Xenotransplantation? Walk the walk, don’t just talk the talk. Your comment, “…any diabetic has no excuse for having diabetes” is incredibly demeaning to Type 1′s, especially children.

        Let me add, transplantation is transplantation and heavy immunosuppressants are required to keep transplanted cells of any kind alive. How is this a cure again? I had a pancreas transplant for seven years, I’m guessing I know a bit more about all this than you, as you have yet to back up your claims.

    Not anymore. Sten cell xenotransplantation is over 70 years old and is brand new here in the USA. Do some research and don’t just believe what I say. Google search Stem Cell Xenotransplantation or SCXT and start reading. It will blow your mind. Hemp oil is a great way of natural medicating yourself too and can be used in conjunction with many modalities but SCXT is the bomb.

    Im now 27 and have had diabetes since 6, ive used cannabis since i was 21 and have always noticed and said to friends and family that my sugar levels are more stable, wspecially after food, ive never really took much noticed of this as i thought it would be stupid to mention this ti my doctor, only until now ive really typed it in on google. I see alot of forums and quotes stating ” some diabetics say it helps them with sugar levels”, fact is it do, ive had years with diabetes and not used cannabis and have had years with it whilst using it and i know the results and they are 100% accurate. I thought i was on my own on this one

    Confused as to how weed helps stabilize blood sugars. It causes one to eat excessively. Are they saying no postprandial spikes? I don’t buy it.

    1. Drake Wolfe
      Drake Wolfe April 27, 2013 at 5:05 pm | | Reply

      You don’t “buy it”, well, lets see if you can argue with science and the basics of how the body works.

      First you have to understand that the pancreas regulates insulin in a normal, healthy, body. A diabetics pancreas is malfunctioning and therefore the blood sugar is unstable in that person.

      Okay, so when a diabetic has blood sugar issues they either take a pill or inject insulin or ingest glucose into their bodies to regulate said blood sugars.

      Now, the active drug in marijuana/cannabis is Tetrahydrocannabinol or THC as it’s most commonly known as. If you notice the C in THC is cannabinol, and that tells us that THC is a cannabinoid.

      Our bodies have natural cannabinoid receptors mainly the heart, brain, and pancreas. So people that have diabetes, mental issues, and heart issues respond greatly to THC. Because THC opens arteries, veins and capillaries which helps people with heart issues, and diabetics that suffer with RLS and neuropathy.

      People that have diabetes benefit from cannabis because the THC in it activates the pancreas, and essentially “forces” the pancreas to produce natural insulin, and which in turn forces blood cells to “carry” or “transport” the insulin to the brain. Therefore regulating blood sugar.

      People that have mental issues can use cannabis to help regulate thought “speed” and concentration. Like myself, I have ADHD and when I intake THC I am more clearly focused and can accomplish more task, people with ADHD react with THC differently than people who do not have it, it has also been shown to be effective with helping to produce melatonin for people with insomnia, and help control issues (outburst) with people with PTSD, it calms them down and helps them relax.

      And don’t forget about the major advancements with THC fighting and killing cancer and in some cases reversing it.

      And the diabetics that can possibly lose their sight can know that THC is VERY effective against glaucoma.

      Understand that marijuana is only illegal because big business doesn’t want it legalized. Why?

      Because the cannabis oils burn cleaner and are more efficient than unleaded or E83 and can be produced at a 1/10th of the price . AND work fine in a standard gas engine, not to mention gas could be 75 cents a gallon.

      Textile industries would lose because the cannabis can be woven and spun just like cotton and it has a better tensile strength and is softer. Not to mention the space savings on the land, 1 ton of cannabis can provide the same amount of material as roughly 3 tons of cotton.

      Pharmaceutical, cannabis well, is really a natural reliever for MANY issues, and much of the population can ingest it and not have ANY serious side effects. Of course they want to keep it “illegal”, you get pill A, it has bad side effects now you need pill B, etc., etc…

      Understand that the whole “marijuana is bad” rhetoric is big business and big government propaganda no different to what Soviet Russia did, and what China, North Korea, and Cuba still do to this day.

      And you have to realize that cannabis and its DOCUMENTED use started 4,500 years ago with the Egyptians (2500 years before Jesus) and was WIDELY used until the 20th century when a big case of stupid hit the world for whatever reason. Logic tells us that if something was bad and was tried 4500 years ago, we as a species wouldn’t use it today or we would know the properties of it and try to make the substance useful as a poison, or even a different form of medicine.

      Stop being so blind and educate yourself before posting an uneducated comment such as “I’m not buying it”, because you have been brainwashed your whole life. understand it’s NOT your fault, this crap disinformation has been POUNDED into you since you were in grade school, TV, police, etc. I am NOT disrespecting you or your beliefs, but please, don’t follow the flock and make an INFORMED and EDUCATED decision.

      Hey this is for the guy who does not know how or why cannabis sativa regulates blood sugar. I was type 2 from 16-22 i am now cleared of my status. Does not mean i can go and eat a bunch of junk food now, but it does mean i can stop worrying as much.. doc said to exercise and eat healthy.. well i work 12+ hour days but i still eat fairly unhealthy. I smoke weed from when i wake up and go to bed. I probably eat6-8 meals a day as doctors recommend, if i feel hungry when I’m not eating so i have a sandwich or something filling but not stuffing my face. I let my body process. Now since I’m stoned all day my body and mind are ready for the munch.. your body is sending out receptors to tell my brain it’s time to eat and break this down.. when i a sober my body wants less food it’s harder to eat even.. my body wants food so it makes its own. It’s that process which hurts you the most your own body’s food is the most harmful to your blood sugar.. i produce less of this when stoned, thus giving my body a fighting chance to break my food down. You eat more and properly same time every day your blood sugers will lower.. pot increases the rate i break foods down because it increases how much food we want. Don’t pig out at one meal, you put your body into shock. Have your favorite burger… eat it with water and yam fries. Eat till merely satisfied, you will feel great smoke a joint before and after meals too. I find myself feeling great!!! More people need to smoke pot and boost their cbd and thc levels. ( cannabinoides go hand in hand in)

    I have no issue with the sale of pot, I totally agree that alcohol which is legal does much more harm than the weed, however, most of these “fake diabetics” I call them, I have been a REAL diabetic, type one since I was 3, I am now 41, I want to know how pot, or anything else is going to CURE me? How is any of it going to make my pancreas start making insulin????. It won’t, plain and simple. Yes “fake diabetics” type 2, have cures right in front of them, most need to just learn to eat an apple in place of a snickers bar, I do not have that luxury, so all of these people ranting and raving about CURES for diabetes, need to learn that there is a REAL diabetic and then there are lots of “fake diabetics” and treatment for the two are totally different.

      I have a childhood friend with type 1 diabetes and type 2 runs in my own family.

      For type 1 diabetes I would think that cannabis while far from a cure would go a good way towards improving length of life by offsetting a lot of the nerve and blood vessel damage done, its definitely symptom relief and can be a good part of prevention of long term damage for type 1 sufferers.

      Here I am more speculating, but cannabis is good at treating auto-immune disorders, it could be possible to prevent some cases of type 1 diabetes with cannabinoids. Though it is certainly true it is not a cure.

      “Fake Diabetics” is a term that is very unfair. I have Type 2 diabetes. Did I ask to be diabetic? No, I didn’t. No more than a person with Type 1. My cells are resistant to insulin and I did eat an apple instead of a snickers bar you pompus jerk. I did everything I was suppose to do and still got it. So, before you cast judgement on people for something they can’t help, you need to check yourself and learn the facts.

          Type 1 and Type 2 are the same thing. Both are suppressed beta islets. The difference is that a type1 has zero functioning beta islets. Type2 has lost enough that it affects their health. Both are just as serious. The big differences I see are:
          Type 2 is harder to calculate because stress etc affects your sugar level so you need to always calculate because your existing beta islets can produce more or less insulin.
          Type 1 is easier to calculate because you have zero insulin.

          Both are just as serious because both can cause a build up of sugar in the blood. Theoretically a Type 2 person would have more ‘warning’ before having a stroke etc because their body produces some insulin but the main point being that both can be just as serious. All it takes is a lack of knowledge about your sugar levels and your food and you could die. Diabetes was considered a terminal disease until insulin was made available. If the chemists fail to supply insulin because trucks don’t have fuel to ship insulin, affected diabetics will die because Diabetes is a terminal and fatal disease. I dunno why people try to play it down. Atleast with cancer you have months, diabetes you can die in a few hours.

      “Fake Diabetics”? I am pretty sure there is nothing fake about my blood sugar levels and all the other side effects I am dealing with from my Type 2 diabetes! We have the same disease just brought on by different reasons. I am genetically predisposed to the disease not only because I was hypoglycemic from the time I was 4-5 until I was 34, but also because both my parents who are of “typical healthy weight” with healthy eating habits and both of their parents all either had or have diabetes. I eat a strict diabetic diet excercise and my sugar levels are still high with oral meds, to the point that my kidneys and my fertility have been affected and my only option is now insulin. No amount if apples are going to help me at this point.

      How could you call us type two diabetics fake? I was diagnosed in my early twenties and have always been active and hard working. I never asked to be diabetic nor do I wish to have it. I rarely ever ate candy either and still rarely eat candy. I also watch what I eat but still suffer from diabetes. You my friend are an insensitive ass! You, whome of which is a diabetic, really is uneducated on your own disease. Type two also is pancreas related you fool. As you age your pancreas also starts to shut down in some. Yes there are those who come down with it due to inactivity and poor diet but there are those like me who come down with diabetes no matter what. Get educated in your own disease!

If I even so much as eat that proverbial apple i am spiking over 300. so shut the fuck up miss high and mighty. cannabis HAS helped w/ my sugars, as well as my fibromyalgia, arthritis, depression, and anxiety. so go blow your crybaby bullshit elsewhere. i wish i wasnt a diabetic. you obviously have no idea about type 2.

      As a T1 diabetic I understand all of the anger towards T2′s. One might ask when a type 2 diabetic asked for the condition, but I wonder when I asked for it? I’m fairly sure my 11-year-old self did not pine the night away hoping for my pancreas to basically die inside me. I did not long for the days of blindness, leg ulcers, hypo’s, and kidney failure. I did not think that bedtime with my husband would involve him waking up to a sweating, shaking mess of a wife. I did not ask for my then 4-year-old to find me in a coma on the floor. Maybe I’m forgetting, but I don’t think so.
      Type 2 is influenced by lifestyle choices. Blame whoever you want- or no one at all- but there is an element of lifestyle choices. If not the risk factors would not lean so heavily to those related to how you choose to live your life? What are the risk factors for T1? The Mayo Clinic clearly states that there aren’t many that are known. And, going down the list, the vast majority- oh wait, all of them are beyond the scope of the individual in question.
      Type 2′s give Type 1′s a horrible reputation. No, I did not consume a massive amount of sugar as a child. No, I can’t afford to lose 10lbs, honestly. What does it tell you when so many people are unaware of their diabetic condition? To me it screams that those people have no regard for their health and that maybe, just maybe, they should put themselves in our shoes. Find me a T1 that is unaware of his condition. There aren’t any- that person already died.

        I am a type 1 diabetic and I was not diagnosed until last year at the age of 24 when I was admited into the hospital for diabetic ketoacidosis. I knew something was wrong because my parents are type twos as well as 3 of my grandparents the fourth was type 1 and my grandparents parents had it as well so I am familiar with the disease. I understand how you feel Its like your body is betraying you and there is nothing you can do about it. But believe me they feel the exact same way. Not everyone who is type 2 asked for it by choosing a bad life style some got it during pregnancy and it didn’t leave like my mother and some inherit it like my father. At the end of the day Nobody ask for this disease yeah some could have prevented it but at the end of the day they still have the same issues as we do. btw I’m a person who didn’t know and i’m still alive. But back to it being “Fake”Whether their life style caused their diabeties or not they still go through the same thing you do they have to take pills or inject themselves daily their levels drop they go into comas THEY DIE.

    I am a 33 year old type 1 diabetic. I was diagnosed 12 years ago and smoked weed long before that. As a teenager, I loved getting high and smoked often. Now I find it incredibly hard to do anything other than watch youtube videos or go hiking when I am high. I also don’t really enjoy the effects like I used to. The reason for this is I have no tolerance and that keeps me from smoking which in turn keeps my tolerance low. For myself Smoking weed may stabalize my blood sugar, but I also tend to eat everything in sight which does NOT stabalize my blood sugar. I am sure for a chronic smoker, this would not be as big of an issue. Once you get used to the effects they are not nearly as problematic. I think the bottom line is that it varies from person to person. I think it is one of the most harmless substances out there, so give it a try and see how it works for you. Smoke the good stuff though because it makes a huge difference. Low quality herb is harsh and gives you a headache. It also may have harmful pesticides, fungicides etc.

    I am living proof that cannibus cures diabetes..When I stopped useing it it did come back.Now my results didnt occur from smokeing or vaporizing but from candies. My partner makes well made really incredible candies that would bring my blood sugars down when they were very high in the 500 to 700 range very dangerious to around 100 to 120 range in 20 minutes.The cause of the rise for me is of my own doing and it is because I drink as well..My own doctor was schocked to do blood work and discover that I was a miracle and had been givin a gift from God.I do feel the same as cannibus is of the earth and for whatever beliefs you have can call it what you will.All I know is it works.I was recently barged in on and my means of providing myself and giving others the means of not having to use pain killers and other drugs that sooo damage livers and other vital organs everythimg was I call it stolin from me by our wonderful government agencies wasteing 500+ thousands of dollars,(tax payer dollars) to do this, making such a scene to stop something that helps people and have no clue ehat it takes to make this correct how much is wasted in discovering new ways to help ourselves and others. Makes sense to me to do this instead of searching out the kidnappers of children, child molesters, rapeists The criminals that hurt people. So I cant provide my own medician and cant afford what they wont take and dont need any more damage from from the perscribed pain killers .It is ridiculas that a single dad, was cut off of medical couldnt afford insulian _and sryinges found what worked better

      Hi, I find it terrible what the government agencies did to you. I hope your doing better now. Are type 1 diabetic? And can you give me any more specifics about how long you used the candies, or how much you ate before seeing results, and how soon did the diabetes come back after stopping with the candies? I’m type 1 diabetic (living in The Netherlands) and trying treatment with canna butter, but there’s very little information I can find about recommended doses. And although many people claim that it helps the condition almost nobody has said that they cured their type 1 diabetes with cannabis.

        The amount used to cure cancer for a whole body is 60gm of oil over 90 days. Start off with a small dose and every day increase the dose so that your largest dose is on the last day and smallest dose on the first day.
        The reason for this is you want to build up cannabinoids in your fatty tissues.
        60gm of oil is the average dosage for the average size male – according to a Canadian doctor who successfully cured cancers and at the same time, without intending for it cured diabetes.
        The result should be that your pancreas will begin producing insulin as more of your pancreas comes into direct contact with the cannabinoids.
        The method might not always work 100% the reason for this is that cannabinoids are like keys. The human body produces 1 cannabinoid called an endo-cannabinoid.
        The cannabis plant has about 20 cannabinoids. So you have more chance of one of those cannabinoids travelling through the CB1, CB2 receptors to communicate with the nerves that are suppressing your pancreas from producing insulin.
        I’m assuming it would require about 1 pound of cannabis flower (about 445gm) to produce 60gm of oil.
        To make sure that your get better benefits from the cannabinoids make sure you have a high CBD plant such as ‘Cannatonic’.
        I do not support breaking the law so this advice is in the context that you are in a country where it is legal to do all the above as stated.
        Always check your sugar levels if you do not know your sugar levels.
        Heat destroys cannabinoids so if I was to consume cannabis in a legal setting, I would make sure I had extracted the oil before making doses.
        If you are going to heat the cannabis such as burn it / vaporize it, perhaps the dose could be doubled.
        It is not addictive, does not damage your body in anyway and infact it protects the cells in your body. Just find a dose that is comfortable to start with and increase that does until your condition is fixed.

    Look, these comments are quite wrong headed. A diabetic has difficuly getting glucose into the cell. Smoking pot lowers blood sugar..that is what the “munchies” are..you crave fod/sweets. Wjen you smoke pot, you are essentially doubling the problem, and you feel very, very, sick from low blood sugars..which is the worst feeling in the world. It is analogous to taking too much insulin or medication.

      Richard the munchies aren’t caused by the weed lowering your blood sugar. Weed is not like insulin I don’t know where you got that from. Im type 1 diabetic and I’ve never had any problems with it dropping my blood sugar or anything. If that was true then people without diabetes wouldn’t get the munchies..

        Yes, munchies are caused by a drop in blood sugars. This happens to everybody, diabetic or not. Insulin takes up glucose and helps transport the energy to your body, lowering your blood sugars along the way. Diabetics feel bad because the glucose energy is not getting where it needs to go. If you already have that problem, smoking pot starves the cells even more. I think you are confused about insulin and what it does. One could have a very bad reaction from smoking pot, it depends on how bad your diabetes is.

        Munchies is not related to the BSL. The whole reason the science world learned about cannabis curing cancer was that in 2003, in Russia, they made a diet pill that blocked a chemical in the brain that caused hunger.
        Later they learned that of all the people that consumed this diet pill, 12 committed suicide, many more developed cancers throughout their whole body.
        They realised that this chemical that they blocked was the in charge of regulating the cells in the body (unregulated cells continue to grow and become tumas) and it also regulated hunger.
        This chemical was the same shape as a cannabinoid. It was here that scientists learned that all living creatures contain cannabinoids. So to not confuse people they renamed cannabinoids that do not exist in the cannabis plant as ‘endo-cannabinoids’.

        Yes, low BSL will cause hunger but munchies is caused by an abundance of hunger stimulating cannabinoids in the brain. They are the same shape as the endo-cannabinoid and therefore the body allows them to enter keyholes/receptors and execute commands such as ‘this cell should apoptosize (apoptosis = programmed/intended cell death. Necrosis is non-intended cell death) or they can create states such as “you should be hungry”

        Take your insulin and check your blood sugars so your don’t become unhealthy but you will see a constant improvement of your diabetes according to:

If you eat normally or break your meals up while smoking your blood sugers will lower and you feel good not bad. I feel like Shit when i don’t smoke. My blood sugar spikes too. My body is ready to eat and breakdown when I’m stoned. It’s called resisting the urge to stuff my face. Which is really easy after you feel like a million bucks.

Some dinner wither perhaps some juiced cannabis leaves and other veggies. Then about 2 grams of cannabis oil in a capsule to wash it all down.

    I am a late onset Type 1 diabetic. I take 310 units of insulin daily. 80mg x 2 of Lantice and 50mg x 3 daily of Novalog. My blood sugars still average over 450 most of the time. My most recent A1-C was 14.6. They say I am insulin resistant. The only times we have seen significant reductions have been when they hospitalize me and did an insulin drip directly into my vein. Can medicinal marijuana really help lower my blood sugars or help with the pain in my feet and toes associated with nyropothy?

    I am 18 and a type 1 diabetic and I got diagnosed about 9 months ago. My friend told me about the medical affects of marijuana for diabetes so I decided that I would see for myself if it was true or not. 2 day after I started using i noticed a massive difference from my blood sugar levels averaging approx 250-300 to then averaging 100-150 so I continued to use it. Then because of something that happened (not to do with my body just circumstances) I had to stop for a while. I still not using now for the same reasons and my blood sugar is averaging around 300, when situations have changed I will re-post and say if it has a big change again. Just reading this page and finding out how may medical benefits it has I just don’t understand why it is still illegal in most countries??

    Actually, diabetes was found to be something different to what we thought it was. For a long time the science community thought beta islets were destroyed in type 1 patients. This is not true. In a case where an inflamed pancreas had the nerves in it destroyed via acid from the capsicum plant, the beta islets began to produce insulin. These inflamed nerves in diabetics is what suppresses the beta islets from producing insulin and functioning. The problem with this treatment for diabetes is it requires an injection into the pancreas every 4 months. Later, in a university study, it was found that just by communicating with the endo-cannabinoid receptors in the nerves of the pancreas, they could be regulated by sending a message via these 2 receptors. Meaning that upon receiving a message from the brain, these inflamed nerve cells would under go apoptosis and be repaired with non-inflamed nerves. Perhaps these nerves receive damage from something but by using endocannabinoids which the human brain produces these nerves can be regulated. The problem is that in cancer patients and diabetics and any other illness/condition related to cell regulation is that the endocannabinoid is not communicating with the cell for some reason. In the cannabis plant there are 9~20 or so different ingredients that have the same shape as the endocannabinoid. So you have 9~20 times more chance that one of these cannabinoids will be able to communicate with that cell. That’s a lot better than one chance. To cure diabetes or any non regulated cell, you need direct contact between the cannabinoid and that cell. To do this you need to store cannabinoids into your fatty tissues. This is a good thing and infact if you look up ‘U.S. Patent no. 6630507′ you will see the US government supported a private company patenting this process where CBD is used to protect fatty tissues from damage (especially in the case of oxidation (neuropathy) which is the first and most common damage caused to diabetics). So to do this you need to consume 60gm of oil over 90 days. Increasing the dosage slightly over time so that as you get closer to 90 days, each dose is greater than the last. CBD will not get you high and most likely you will be able to operate heavy machinery so long as the CBD amount is greater than the THC amount. Don’t break the law, change the law. Go to a place where this is legal. Get a tourist visa for 90 days and a bit more, get a prescription from a doctor to use this plant for medical purposes and get those cannabinoids into your fatty tissues. After 90 days most of your fatty tissue should contain cannabinoids and be your cells should be regulated. It would not be unusual if cancer and diabetes is cured as they are conditions caused by lack of cell regulation. Cannabinoids regulate cells because Endo-cannabinoids regulate cells and they are so similar the human body’s cells cannot differentiate the two.

      I quit five months ago. No problem quitting. I have since developed neuropathy in my feet (nerve pain) which I was told is chronic. Treatment is currently massive doses of an anti-convulsant that just lessens the pain (takes three hours to kick in) but beats me up till I fall asleep so I only take it at night. Other options are anti-depressants that are too expensive without insurance or opiates which make you very stupid and wonky. I have since read that the strain of cannabis that gives the body high (the one most stoners don’t want) releives the pain and helps the nerves to heal (something no perscription drug offers). A friend found some for me and within five minutes, the pain was gone. I have since obtained a doctor referral and am applying for my Michigan card to get Cannabis legally. Believe what you want but it is the only medication that I have found that works for nerve pain.

    Recently diagnosed Type 2, despite having smoked the good herb almost every day for 32 years now (I am now 47). I think that to say I have no excuse for being diabetic is a bit harsh, Doug H. I am a bit overweight (BMI 27.9 – not obese) but generally fit – can cycle 100km without too much difficulty, and was only diagnosed by chance when I had a blood test for something else. The problem with marijuana for me is that when I smoke it, I get the munchies, and I crave sweet things. So for 32 years I have been pounding myself with huge quantities of sugar – I can, or rather could, easily put away a pound of sweets in an evening, or a 500ml tub of ice cream, not necessarily this much every day but still way more than most people would eat. So even though I have been told my diabetes is likely to be hereditary rather than caused by years of eating too much sugar and drinking too much beer, I am happy enough to concede that it wasn’t a great surprise when I was diagnosed. If stem cell treatment becomes available I will certainly try it, but I don’t think weed is going to be the answer for me. Although I can but hope that it mitigates some of the symptoms, and at worst, it will certainly help me forget about it! Any old hoo, legalise it, obviously, along with all other drugs and let our law enforcement people get on with detecting and preventing real harm. Or eating doughnuts, WHICH I CAN’T EAT ANY MORE DAMMIT!!!! Best wishes to all my fellow diabetics, tokers, and nice people generally.

    Marty,
    I find cannabis use tends to make my cells more receptive to the insulin I take. This is anecdotale, I have no scientific proof it does this. I’ve lowered my my insulin intake by almost half of what I took before. I smoke and orally use cannabis daily without any negative effects, quite the opposite actually. I tend to eat healthier more fresh foods from my garden, the same garden that legally provides my organic cannabis!
