CBD Oil and Diabetes

Cannabidiol (CBD) is known as one of the most medicinally viable chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant. CBD is responsible for the medical attributes of cannabis, which means that consuming this cannabinoid is a great way to enjoy the therapeutic benefits of the plant. One of the most popular cannabis products is CBD oil, especially as it is extremely versatile.

This product can be added used as a culinary ingredient or as an addition to drinks. Some products can be consumed as topicals, soft gels or as is. This makes this cannabinoid easy to consume, especially for patients. Suffering from diabetes? This product can be good for you, too. Here’s how cannabidiol and diabetes are connected.

What is Diabetes?

First, let’s talk about diabetes. It is a condition suffered by over 422 million people, in which the body suffers from high blood sugar levels. This is usually caused by the body’s lack of ability to create insulin. Some can produce this hormone, but cannot use it, thus, resulting in soaring sugar levels.

Now, you may be wondering how it connects with cannabidiol. One thing you should know about this compound is that it is found to be effective in maintaining the body’s homeostasis. One of the most important factors that affect homeostasis is a hormone imbalance, and insulin is a hormone produced in the pancreas that regulates blood sugar, helps process sugar and uses it for energy.

How Can CBD Oil Help Diabetes Patients?

Now that you know how diabetes and cannabidiol are connected, you might curious as to how products such as CBD oil can help patients. Check out this list of benefits CBD offers to sufferers.

Lowering Cholesterol Levels

Cardiovascular diseases are included in the list of complications caused by this condition. In fact, experts say that those who suffer from diabetes could have elevated risks of getting heart diseases such as coronary artery disease. They could also suffer from a stroke.

Usually, these heart conditions are caused by bad fats. These are the kind of cholesterol that affects your cardiovascular system and combined with diabetes, high levels of these fats can increase your chances of developing heart issues.

CBD oil is known to lower cholesterol levels as it aids in the processing of fats, especially good ones. This cannabinoid helps in turning white fat into brown fat, which is known to help the body slim down. This has the potential to increase the body’s ability to spend glucose present in your system.

Increased Insulin Production and Use

As mentioned, insulin helps in processing sugar in the bloodstream. Specifically, it breaks down sugar to be processed into glucose, which is turned into energy. Sufferers of Type 1 diabetes usually lack insulin, while those with Type 2 have insulin, but it does not function as intended.

For Type 1 patients, CBD can aid in the increase of insulin production, especially as this chemical intends to restore homeostasis in your body. For the same reason, Type 2 patients can use such infused products for the body to better use the insulin it already creates.

Relieves Pain

Aside from cardiovascular diseases, this condition can also cause neuropathy in the legs and feet, which is essentially nerve damage. This can result in pain, cramps, tingling or burning sensations, and general discomfort. Research shows the effectiveness of CBD oil for pain, specifically, in relieving such sensations.

Individuals who suffer from diabetes and are looking for other ways to address this condition can definitely incorporate CBD oil into their treatment. Just make sure to consult your doctor beforehand and you are good to go.
