The Following Advertisement Was on FaceBook Today!


Well over 100 million American adults, that's about 1/3 of the population - are currently living with either Type I or Type II diabetes.

Another 84ish million are also prediabetic, and if they don’t take control of their condition, will end up with Type II diabetes within roughly five years.

No doubt, the prevalence of diabetes in the United States is a serious problem. Doctors and researchers are working hard every day to try and solve it.

As a result of their hard work, they have found many possible solutions. One of which, in particular, has been getting a LOT of attention lately - CBD oil and other CBD-infused products.

For a couple years, now, CBD has been touted as a solution or remedy for all difficulties or diseases for everything from migraine headaches to mental health issues like depression.

So, is there a connections between CBD and diabetes prevention and treatment? Read on to find out!

First things first, let’s clarify what CBD is.

CBD stands for cannabidiol. Cannabidiol is the second most common cannabinoid that is found in many different strains of the cannabis plant, but the MOST COMMON cannabinoid found in the hemp plant.

Unlike THC, the most frequently talked about cannabinoid, CBD does not come with any mind-altering effects. However, it can still support THCs medicinal benefits, and it provides many benefits when used on its own.

Many people currently use it, often in conjunction with other forms of treatments - to prevent and treat diabetes. While the research on CBD and diabetes is relatively new, the majority of it is very promising.

There are a number of positive links between CBD oil and diabetes, including the following...

1. Prevention
One of the most important ways that CBD possibly affects diabetes has to do with preventing the disease from occurring in the first place.

People who are more likely to be diagnosed with diabetes, specifically Type II diabetes often have insulin resistance and high fasting insulin levels. They also have low levels of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol.

The results of a five-year study showed that people who used cannabis or hemp on a regular basis had fasting insulin levels that were 16 percent lower than participants who had never used cannabis.

These people also had higher levels of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, as well as insulin resistance levels that were 17 percent lower than those who had never used cannabis.

People who had previously used cannabis or hemp but were not current users also had better fasting insulin, cholesterol, and insulin resistance levels compared to those who had never used it. But, their results were not as good as those of current users.

2. Treats Insulin Resistance
Insulin resistance occurs when the body’s cells reject insulin, which is produced by the pancreas to regulate blood sugar. When the cells reject insulin, they cannot absorb glucose (sugar) which is needed for energy. This causes glucose to build up in your bloodstream and leads to high blood sugar levels.

Insulin resistance is a key factor in prediabetes and Type II diabetes.

Researchers are not totally sure how CBD works to treat insulin resistance, but many believe that credit belongs to CBD’s powerful anti-inflammatory benefits.

Many studies have a shown a connection between chronic inflammation and insulin resistance.

When inflammation is reduced, the immune system and cardiovascular system function better. A lack of inflammation can also improve cell growth and improve sugar metabolism.

If all of these systems throughout the body are working as efficiently as possible, the chances of developing insulin resistance and diabetes are decreased.

3. Prevents Obesity
Obesity and a large waist circumference are well-known risk factors for Type II diabetes.

Research shows that cannabis and hemp use has been linked to a smaller waist circumference, a lower BMI (body mass index) and decreased obesity levels.

CBD performs several different functions in the body that contribute to its weight management benefits. In addition to helping users get rid of extra weight in the form of inflammation, it may also act as an appetite suppressant. As a result, it would help people avoid overeating and gaining weight.

CBD may also contribute to the process of fat browning. During this process, white adipose is converted to brown adipose. White adipose stores energy (calories), but brown adipose improves the body’s energy-burning capabilities.

In short, CBD is believed to help the body burn calories more efficiently. On a personal note I have dropped from 325 pounds to 270 pounds over the last 10 months.

4. Treats Neuropathy
See my PR from yesterday 10 Oct 18 regarding Neuropathy...
For people who currently struggle with diabetes, neuropathy, or nerve damage, is a common occurrence. Most diabetics experience neuropathy in the hands and feet, but any organ can be affected. (Read that last sentence again!)

Common symptoms of diabetic neuropathy include pain, numbness, and tingling in the affected area. To also include stabbing pains and burning!

Studies suggest that CBD appears to work better than conventional medicine when it comes to treating diabetic neuropathy.

One study found that CBD could be used to both relieve pain and prevent additional neuropathy.

Researchers believe this is the case because CBD may increase the body’s levels of nerve growth factor. CBD may also protect the liver from oxidative stress, which seems to contribute to the development of neuropathy.

5. Speeds Healing for Skin Complications
In addition to neuropathy, many diabetics also struggle with chronic skin sensitivity and irritation. Sometimes you can't even stand a blanket on you or even your clothes touching the affected area...Am I Right??

Common issues include sores on the feet and rashes on various parts of the body too.

CBD may help heal these skin conditions and provide diabetics relief from the itching, burning, and general discomfort that accompanies them.

CBD’s anti-inflammatory and moisturizing benefits may help soothe irritation. They may also speed up the body’s natural healing processes. Studies suggest that CBD has anti-aging properties, too, that may be beneficial for healing and preventing painful skin conditions.

CBD oil can be used for skin irritations. Many people report that CBD-infused lotions and creams are also highly effective for those who want a more targeted treatment method.
