I have read that marijuana is good for diabetics as it helps stabilize blood sugars. Is this true?


There is a large body of anecdotal evidence that cannabis may be helpful as a supplemental therapy for diabetes. There has also been a substantial amount of research done in animal models demonstrating that marijuana stabilizes blood sugar levels.

A summary of potential therapeutic benefits for treatment of diabetics includes the following:

  • Blood sugar stabilization
  • Anti-inflammation of blood vessels
  • Neuroprotection and neuropathic pain / discomfort reduction
  • Anti-Spasmodic for muscle pain and gastrointestinal disorders
  • Vasodilation for improving circulation and decreasing blood pressure
  • Calming restless leg syndrome and promoting sleep
