Research - THCV lowers blood sugar diabetes type 2
A recent study found unique results regarding the treatment of diabetes type 2. In the UK, they proved that the relatively unknown cannabinoid THCV could play an important role in the treatment of the form of diabetes. That cannabis may help in the treatment of diabetes was already known. But this study shows that there is still much to discover about the efficacy of cannabis in various diseases.
More than 29 million people in US have diabetes, of which nine out of ten have diabetes type 2. In this form of diabetes the body has too little insulin and reacts (often) not on insulin. Therefore, patients usually get medications, nutrition and exercise advice and in some cases extra insulin. Previously, type 2 diabetes was known as adult-onset diabetes.
Cannabis in diabetes
That diabetes patients could benefit is not news to cannabis. Earlier we shared all five benefits of cannabis in the disease. It can lower insulin resistance and, inter alia, kidney damage due to help prevent diabetes. It is also known that cannabis use may help prevent diabetes altogether. This is partly because marijuana users tend to have a lower BMI than non-cannabis users.
