Marijuana And Diabetes

The American Alliance for Medical Cannabis published one of the first reports on marijuana usage in patients who are diabetic. The study found that medical marijuana can have the following effects on patients who have been diagnosed with diabetes:

  • Stabilize patient’s blood sugar levels
  • Anti-inflammatory properties help subdue arterial inflammation
  • “Neuroprotective” effects reduce and prevent inflammation of nerves that reduces pain
  • “Anti-spasmodic” properties relieve muscle cramps and gastrointestinal disorders
  • Improved circulation
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Substituting cannabis butter and oil in foods benefits cardiac and arterial health
  • Helps to calm diabetic Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS)


A large number of diabetes patients who report regular use of medical marijuana see lower blood sugar levels, as well as reduced A1c over time. Existing evidence also corroborates that medical marijuana has an effect on improving insulin resistance, which is helpful for patients with type 2 diabetes.


There is evidence that shows marijuana’s success with treating chronic pain, sleep and eating disorders, eye conditions, as well as other ailments that are associated with diabetes. Marijuana can help in treating and easing these symptoms.
