Can CBD Oil Be Used to Treat or Prevent Diabetes? What the Research Says

The use of CBD oil as a treatment for diabetes — as well as epilepsy, anxiety, and a wide range of other health conditions — is showing promise, though research is still limited.

CBD is short for cannabidiol, a compound found in the Cannabis sativa plant. The other major compound is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the ingredient that produces a “high.” CBD has no such psychoactive properties.

Among the ongoing areas of research are whether CBD oil may help treat or even lower the risk of developing both type 1 and type 2 diabetes.

How Long Do Edibles Take to Kick In?

Edibles are cannabis-based food products. They come in many different forms, from gummies to brownies, and contain either one or both of marijuana’s active ingredients: THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol).

With the legalization of marijuana, edibles are increasing in popularity. CBD-only edibles have even been found to help treat ailments such as anxiety and chronic pain. As an added benefit, edibles don’t pose risks to the respiratory system — unlike smoking marijuana.

What is CBD? | HBE CANADA

What is CBD?

CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a chemical compound found in the Cannabis sativa hemp plant. It is the non-psychoactive component used in Hemp CBD oils and pet treats. On the other hand, its cousin THC is the psychoactive compound found in the Cannabis sativa marijuana plant. Junella Chin, DO, an osteopathic physician and a medical cannabis expert for cannabisMD states, “CBD is the non-psychoactive part of the plant, so what that means is [one] won’t have any effects like euphoria. [One] won’t feel sedated or altered in anyway.” Visit our History of CBD education center to find out more about the discovery of CBD.
