The Connection Between CBD Oil and Diabetes

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.

The State of Cannabis in Washington State: Things To Know in 2021

Published

on

The Pacific Northwest is well known for its beautifully lush landscapes, crisp apples, fresh air, and progressive lifestyle/health views. Being the only state named after a United States president(George Washington), Washington is a place many happily and willingly call home or their sanctuary.  

In terms of other well-knowns, Washington state was one of the first to legalize cannabis for recreational use nearly a decade ago (2012 to be exact). As long as you are 21 years old or older and reside in the state, you can privately partake in the consumption of cannabis without any legal ramifications. This has been an appeal to many across the country, with some actually moving to the state for this reason.

In 2021, and with the dawn of a new administration in the White House, marijuana looks to have a very bright few years ahead. We’ve already seen an emergence of pot stocks and hometown dispensaries budding up all around the United States and the rest of North America, and that only looks to continue into the near future.

If you’re in the mood to finally take the leap into using cannabis, now could be a great time to learn more about this wonderful plant and its many healing and rejuvenating properties. 

What is it used for mainly in 2021?

Cannabis was once thought only to be good for “getting high.” There has been a plethora of scientific research giving us a better understanding of this miracle plant. It has been used to treat Cancer, Epilepsy, Seizures, Glaucoma, PTSD, Multiple Sclerosis, Inflammation, and even Alzheimer’s disease. In 2021 after a rough 2020, many have been using it as a healthier way to indulge at home, protecting themselves from the ongoing pandemic. Instead of frequent alcohol consumption, there has been a larger shift towards the consumption of cannabis as it has been stated to be less harmful to vital organs like the heart and liver. Alcohol also creates a lot of inflammation within the body, whereas cannabis reportedly fights inflammation. 

Best places to buy it in 2021?

The best places to purchase your cannabis are from state-licensed retailers in Washington. Purchasing weed through private means(aka black-market) is still illegal and should be avoided at all costs. Make sure to do your due diligence when seeking reputable dispensaries as there are “pop-up shops” that claim being licensed but are not, and purchasing from them could result in a hefty fine or even jail time. 

Per WeedMaps, Medical marijuana patients may purchase and possess up to:

  • 3 ounces of marijuana, or 85 grams;
  • 48 ounces, or 1.36 kilograms of marijuana-infused products in solid form;
  • 1.69 gallons, or 6.4 liters of marijuana-infused products in liquid form, or; 
  • 21 grams of marijuana concentrate.

Washington state cannabis Legislation in 2021

As far as growing and cultivation of marijuana for personal use, this is still illegal. Washington cannabis laws are more liberal than other states, but there are still many restrictions, such as not being able to consume it in “public view”. The most notable push in the cannabis space in Washinton state is a bill for home cultivation.

Conclusion

Washington is a great place to visit and, for many, is one of the best places to call home due to its stance on cannabis consumption. With 2021 being a year of progression, it looks like the state of cannabis in Washington will only continue to shine.
