Marijuana And Diabetes

Discussion in 'Marijuana News' started by HighAsPhuck, May 23, 2013.

  1. Was not surprising to me at all. I have Type I, and cannabis does nothing but help to lower my sugars.
    Type II Diabetes is largely an inflammatory response in the body, and insulin resistance happens when there is too much inflammation, and the efficacy of insulin is lowered. We know how beneficial cannabis is for inflammation.
    Less inflamation= better able to metabolise insulin.
    Less insulin needed= less weight gain.
    Tell us something we don't know, Yahoo...
  2. I would have to disagree in a way though. Stoned = munchies. The only time I ever eat sugary shit is when I'm stoned and sometimes I can't control myself lol.

    For some reason i never get munchies when im high.
  4. More science,,it is already hard enough to convince people we aren't being just as dishonest about marijuana's medical attributes as the drug warriors are about it's possible harms. Although it proves more than ever the hypocrisy of prohibition of marijuana to anyone that pays attention to science,,drug warriors and congressman don't,,,they both respond to hundred dollar bills..
  5. yahoo? really?
  6. Yes. All things liberal progressive. Obamacare, and legal pot-derived medicines provided by big pharma. Yahoo is a big comrade supporter.

    OK guys, this has given us a BIG opportunity to educate folks abut cannabis! :hello: Let me get you set for replying to those many articles. What you need to know is that cannabidiol (CBD) is what diabetics need, not THC! Since CBD doesn't get you high, it is more acceptable to the average Joe! Here's what I've been posting up, just to give you an idea or two!
    The #2 compound in CANNABlS, cannabidiol (CBD) has some amazing benefits for diabetics! Diabetic retinopathy is the #1 cause of blindness in adults. "Marijuana Compound May Help Stop Diabetic Retinopathy" (ScienceDaily) tells how CBD stops its progress! CBD also protects the hearts of diabetics! "Lab Notes: Pot Has Benefits for Diabetic Hearts" (MedPageToday). And painful diabetic neuropathy, that tingling, burning or just plain pain in your hands and feet, can be fought with CBD! See "The Endocannabinoid System and Plant-Derived Cannabinoids in Diabetes and Diabetic Complications" (PubMed). There is also evidence that CBD may prevent diabetes!  "Cannabidiol reduces the development of diabetes in an animal study" (CANNABISMED) There is SO much more to CANNABlS than just “getting high”!     
    FYI- The Yahoo censor considers the word "cannabis" to be a "cuss word"! You get around it by typing it all in capital letters EXCEPT for the "i". You replace the "i" with a lower case "L" and it looks like CANNABlS! Even makes it stand out! lol :laughing:
    Here are other articles that you can use-  It doesn't look good if we all use the same ones!

    Commenting in the news is an effective, safe and easy way to be a activist! :yay:  I got a real skeptic to look at my List today! That's all it will take if he is half-way sane! :D Once the medical facts about cannabis become known, the need for legalization becomes obvious! All we have to do is show them the facts!
    Granny :wave:
  8. Hey dudes, I just wanted to add, I don't do facebook and a lot of the articles are facebook plug in only!  :( (The List's facebook page is actually done by a gal in Australia- she volunteered, I accepted, she gets an advance copy when the new version comes out!) So I could use some help here! :yay:

    Here's one on seniors using cannabis to aid sleep and more!

    Granny    :wave:
  9. I can see how this would help.  The thing is it's been hard for me to find Cannabis lately, so I've been drinking more.  When I am drunk I get hungry just like when I smoke.  But when I have smoked there is a self awareness about health, so I think things like "I am hungry, but better have a turkey sandwich".  But when I am drunk I think things like "You know what sounds good right now?  An entire package of hot dogs wrapped in chicken skin!"  
    So yeah...weed is better.
