An interesting newer finding is that cannabis can help to treat and even to prevent the onset of diabetes; it exerts prometabolic effects in diabetic patients, helping normalize blood sugar, blood cholesterol, and lipid levels.

  • Me I’m diabetes type 2 and since i decide to smoke weed, i realise that my blood sugar is back to normal (i smoke around 1.5 gr a day) even when i cheat on sugar. those that mean it work on me

  • Somthing is definitely changing. Im a regular lifter with a stict diet. I do not binge even when i get the cravings. And im dropping so much weight that i had to drastically raise my calories just to maintain

  • Not certain about the points made but,if anyone else trying to find out increases metabolism in body cells try Ichordo Fat loss Fixer (should be on google have a look )? Ive heard some interesting things about it and my buddy got excellent success with it.

  • Thanks for sharing your research!
    old jamaican recipe for asthma, which i used on myself successfully about 30 years ago,
    green ganja (young immature plant) tea…

  • You goons literally just regurgitated a bunch of shot from google searches it and read it as if you know what your talking about ������ bahaha

  • I have had neuropathy for over 20 years. I’ve tried all the usual suspects (Gabapentin, etc.). I have been using cannabis and it really does work. It reduces the overall pain in my body well and although I still have tingling in my feet, it doesn’t bother me as much. My issue is that I have almost 40 years of being sober and I struggle with the addiction component of using this drug. I will say that the cannabis that I’ve been able to procure (both in legal states and non legal) has been high in THC. I am really trying to find how to get products like Ripple Relief with has.5 mg of THC which is low or perhaps, and even lower THC/ high CBD product.

  • Very interesting. I already posted but I Thought I’d let you know that I am having a huge GIVAWAY soon if you want to let your subscribers know.

  • I really don’t see the lung cancer thing happening. Maybe for tobacco users but not so much for cannbis smokers that just doesn’t add up at all..

  • I only feel lazy if i smoke a strong indica, and only for the time being that im high. Even that tho, after the effects of the herb come off my energy levels are restored to normal and I still manage to hit the gym for 2 hours. I know I should be doing Sativas in the day but I like the indica feeling better. I smoke everyday and also dont over eat at all despite the munchies people think everyone gets.

  • The fact that they’re trying to synthesize CBD is not good, many diseases are caused by insulin resistance but instead of curing that they chemically change our functions that cause the symptoms to change(but only temporary meaning no curing) big pharma is very corrupt I mean really ask, why synthesize when people should just be told by their doctors to get cbd which comes dominantly from Hemp

  • funny thing is I was fat before I started smoking and now combining it with working out and also how for some reason weed suppresses my hunger (and I don’t binge when I do get hungry) and I’ve lost about 5 lbs:D

  • I’m certainly no scientist, but I do have Type 2 diabetes and in my case, it lowers my blood sugar, but I also found that I needed to change strains every few weeks for it to continue doing so. My blood sugar was always a little high, esp. so after eating a lot of carbs, but even before I found out I had diabetes, I never would get the munchies as did most of my fellow smokers. I always attributed that to it lowering glucose levels, but as I said, I am no scientist and don’t have anything other than anecdotal “evidence” to back up that belief. I would recommend reading a book called “Sugar Blues” by William Duffy to anyone with diabetes or concerned about their sugar intake or, if for no other reason, to read about his own experiences as well as the history of sugar in civilization.

  • My case i buy canabis oil for my insomnia,anxiety and gerd…i use that oil for cure this but i stil so hard to sleep and yesterday at 5.00pm i jogg to gain weight body because i skinny because i eat like a fat gut still same shape and my nose bone had injured 9 years ago…but all of this case still happen…can somebody help me…

  • Many thanks, I have been researching “what causes my feet to tingle?” for a while now, and I think this has helped. Ever heard of Renogan Uncomplicated Remedy (search on google )? It is an awesome one of a kind guide for discovering how to eradicate diabetic nerve pain and neuropathy without the normal expense. Ive heard some amazing things about it and my neighbour got great results with it.

  • 6:16 so does it double the risk of diabetic ketoacidosis? I’m asking because you deleted it then replaced it without explaining it. A better explanation would be greatly appreciated thank you

  • I’m 54 and have developed non-diabetic related peripheral neuropathy in my feet over the last 5 years which I would describe as moderate to moderately severe. I have gone through all of the “standard” treatments along with numerous homeopathic treatments, with some of these various treatments having side effects I wouldn’t wish on anyone. Once Oklahoma legalized medicinal marijuana, I got my card and ventured into edibles, tinctures and finally flower. I can take one bong hit and within literally seconds, the pain is not gone but dialed down to such an extent that I can almost imagine it’s not there. It will never cure the numbness caused by the nerve damage but having even a few hours of relief and feeling normal has so greatly improved my quality of life. I continue to experiment with different strains and methods of intake as I am working to get off Gabapentin which I take during the day when working. So thankful for all of the research that continues to happen.

  • Thank you for not being biased, most videos on cannabis have very biased info weather it’s against or for it but you guys seemed to give us just the facts and nothing else which is great ����

  • Very simple simple. Marijuana bypasses the conscious left brain and changes your minds frequency from alpha to theta. Your subconscious is more powerful and consumes more glucose. You are simply releasing more stored energy in your cells therefore your body can consume more calories without gaining weight. Hence the fatigue, your body produces a high by releasing stored energy and ATP. It isn’t sustainable over the long run just like energy drinks.

  • All this time people hollering how bad weed is.. yet I look younger than my age and apparently from your studies.. I’ll live forever!! ����‍♀️��������

  • I’ve been researching, she’s pushing CBD too much. If you want to help diabetics (more specifically pot smoking ones) would benefit the most from THC-V. 95-99% of stuff they sell isn’t what you need. You’ll be lucky to even get a bud tender that even knows about theses compounds are. It really does start with you, and your gut health. I literally lived this, I’ll make sure my weeds organic but the shit I put in my body isn’t. Subscribe to my channel I’ll be making my own educational videos.

  • I am a T1 diabetic and have been using various cannabis products since Jan 2019, with positive results. Stats from Jan: weight 210, A1C 6.0, Basal 10-12 units/day, Bolus 0-8 units/day (using 1 unit per five grams of carbohydrates to correct), cpep 373. Three months after implementing cannabis into my treatment protocol my weight was down to 165lbs(never under 200lbs my entire teen/adult life with a high of 420lbs at age 19), Basal 4-7 units/day, Bolus 0-2 units a day (1 unit now will cover 25 grams of carbohydrates). Other observations after the first three or four months was that RSO or Hash worked better at controlling blood sugar than any flower I tried. My wife prefers flower and uses it for anxiety, so I tried twenty plus over that time; ones we bought and some we grew ourselves.

    At one point I missed my Basal dose and decided to see how long it would be before I needed to take it or a bolus. The result was blood sugar from 4.5 (81) 6.5 (117) for ten days with just a carnivore diet and smoking cannabis. Then I forgot my insulin on a trip to the US and because I look like a narc I could not buy any cannabis where I was, so three days without insulin or cannabis. The highest point my blood sugar got to over the weekend was 8.9 (160) on Saturday night but had gone back to 6.0 (108) by the morning.

    At about the seven month mark I had labs done and everything is great, with the best A1C I have ever had at 5.2, but the real surprise was the cpep had gone up to 514. Five years ago when I was first diagnosed it was 341 and I was told it would eventually go to zero and there was nothing I could do about it. Then after three years of keto/carnivore diets I had it up to 373, but the doctor and endocrinologist dismissed the improvement, as both tests considering statistical error, could be basically the same. But it had NOT gone to zero or even headed towards it, so to me this was some kind of positive result.

    Most folks who are not diabetic may not know what cpep is, so: From, “C-peptide is a widely used measure of pancreatic beta cell function. It is produced in equimolar amounts to endogenous insulin but is excreted at a more constant rate over a longer time.” This makes it a viable indicator of pancreas function. I am in no way implying this is some kind of cure, as there is no cure for T1 diabetes at this time, but things are headed in a positive direction.

    Ok, so what is going on around here? How did smoking cannabis, drop my weight, decrease the amount a gram of carbohydrates would raise my blood sugar, make my rapid insulin 3-5 time more effective, allow me to use 30% less basal insulin? I changed nothing in my diet, for the last three years I have been 95% or so zero carb/carnivore, whatever you want to call it and have done zero exercise. When I asked the diabetes nurse and my doctor, neither had an answer. My pharmacist said she felt the cannabis was enhancing and/or improving my liver function and this was the reason for the great results in so many areas. It could be that or it could be boosting stem cell production. Viacyte has human trials currently underway, implanting blank stems cells that go onto make new beta cells in diabetics. I do not know if this is the case or not, I can only state the results I have achieved.

  • Hahaha, those “negative effects” are laughable and practically just thrown in there by someone who doesn’t smoke.
    CANCER: Weed has been proven to actually be able to kill cancer and shrink brain tumors…
    LAZY: That’s a really misleading stereotype. Different types of people use cannabis and for different reasons. I myself have 5-6 jobs, half of them businesses I started. I smoke to relax and for recreation, but that never affected the kind of person I am.
    Please stop letting that guy just throw assumptions in an educational video.

  • Weed doesn’t make you lazy. Lazy people are lazy, period. I got a PhD and I smoke marijuana everyday. Don’t smear marijuana smokers using pseudo science

  • I’ve been a recreational user since I was 16. I’m 40 now. I usually smoke about once per week on average. Almost always at night. This week I started using it for c7 disc herniation pain and inflammation. I’m ASTOUNDED at how well it works within just 15 minutes. I’ve been living on flexeril (muscle relaxer) and norcos for a week and I dont want to go down that road. I’m getting a steroid injection soon but in the meantime, no more prescription drugs for me. It really is amazing what marijuana is capable of.

  • I have not smoked for over 10 years. Had first panic attack in August. Was prescribed anti depressive and valium. Hit the weed instead. 13 months later stopped smoking again.
    Anxiety gone without pharmacy meds.
    Bonus: Lost 18 bloody kilos.. yay
    A little worried I’ll put the weight back on now. Gives me more energy, more confidence, and I loose weight.

  • I am 55 and have taken CBD, it worked nice for body pains, (knees, elbows).
    But I was introduced to weed again after many years away from it.
    I have been smoking, taking capsules, edibles for about 6 months and have lost 33 pounds. I eat fairly clean and don’t work out. Weed definitely is the key to my weight loss.

  • I quit smoking and I gained 20 pounds in a year.Ive been active all my life and I’m fit, I have abs.This video is accurate on marijuana and metabolism.When I was smoking weed I actually eat less food and I’m more ripped, of course you get the munchies but the overall amount of food I ate was less.

  • Marijuana keeps your heart rate up for hours. And Thats the time tested well known way to lose weight.. And yes! There are many many strains. Do Not Take Marijuana simply for weight loss people. Eat Raw Whole Foods and Work Out.

  • Any body have data, where blood sugar when u take thc vs cbd?
    Looking a1c before and after?
    Looking for daily intake and dose and does it make a difference on your daily blood sugar test?
    And data would be helpful, thank you!

  • I knew this years bk, i knew was raising heartrate up. Burning calories fast, cuz i exercise too. Lazy, lol. Good vid, on nothing the more then average already knows.

  • Because the calories stoners consume r ice cream chocolate and sweets
    I also think being high takes ur electricity down a little bit, less body conscious and I think that hits hormones and shit, like ur not in ur body so much

  • I have type 2 diabetes and IBS I consume edibles, not a smoker and a couple of things that I noticing is loss of bladder and bowel control is this a result of the diabetes and the underlying conditions am I taking too much

  • the shit is crazy… for the past one month i been smoking like 3 joints a day. and my family members keep telling me i look too lean or emaciated… but I eat a lot

  • I’ve studied this in depth. Pot smokers are eating MORE yet losing weight. Losing weight without diet or exercise is related to sickness not health. This is NOT a good thing. This is a result of the digestive system WEAKENING. Slowed gut motility, lower stomach acid, weakened immune system and higher rates of sibo (imbalance of good bacteria in the gut) It takes several months of smoking before this starts happening. Most marijuana benefits REVERSE after about 1 year of regular use. ALL drugs have a secondary delayed response.. meaning the benefits do a 180 turn. You shouldn’t be losing weight for no reason because you are also not absorbing the vitamins, minerals and proteins properly. Peace

  • Great info, Ive been medicinal since 16, used to have a six pack all the nice things and since stopping I’ve done nothing but gained weight while not changing anything in my lifestyle. I’m now 200 lb from 170 and can no longer see any definition in my body, I understand pot will affect people differently but it made me more focused and doubled my endurance I believe via the improved blood flow. Also the one change is I found myself no longer going on hikes to smoke spots and now just go to the gym for my cardio. Only thing I disagree with was the ‘out of it’ statement and laziness one as well, I was almost more active/motivated to get out of the house when I burned everyday. I’m going to go back to burning cause I have seen no changes mentally with out it and only negatives physically. Watched the vid just to understand its affects on metabolism and it only backed up my theory as to why I felt physically better and more energetic with it. Just for those reading I have bad anxiety therefore use high the strains, but I never got the ‘munchies’ people warned me of, if you do I agree that cbd is the strain for you personally

  • Thanks for the video. My mom has diabetes ima talk to her about it. We do Need more research. I want my mom to live a long life. I’m grateful for cannabis it does so much good. ✌����������

  • Think about it. Only TOXINS are stored in fat. Good minerals are stored in bones, gut, and muscle tissue. THC is a anandamine imposter and activates your reward center with no work involved… Thus making you lazy because you receive the feeling of accomplishment without accomplishing anything. Simply put. Weed gets you high. It’s a drug but does have medicinal properties in isolation.

  • also look up white blood cells and other things along the lines of when they first came up with dieabeates i no i cant spell right but anways this is what i think how can u extract that once it reaches ur bones i no muscal is gonna push back into fat blood cells. good thought might fix cancer mang.

  • think along the lines of the first person to have dieabeteas u talken about scoopen fat cells out or what great idea for this video.

  • This was a great video. Thanks for doing the research, and finding the studies. Thank for the physiological break down as well, pertaining to the metabolic response. Idk about cancer as well and I’m sure there is a conclusive long term study being done as I type.

  • I mean these are facts so thats that, however………
    I’m 28 and I quit smoking 7 months ago, I’ve been smoking since I was 15… I lost 15 lbs after I stopped smoking and I wasn’t actively trying.

  • Excellent video content! Apologies for the intrusion, I am interested in your thoughts. Have you tried Zeyames Wonliver Breakthrough (search on google)? It is a great exclusive product for discovering the simple way to end diabetic nerve pain and neuropathy minus the hard work. Ive heard some super things about it and my close friend Aubrey got excellent success with it.

  • The state of Florida has said marijuana has no effect on pain and pain medicine are just seeking to get high.
    please someone help me I don’t want to go back to the pills I just got off the pills.
    please someone help me medical marijuana has had me sleeping for 6 months and eating better and functioning through the day and I’ve broken my pill prescription.
    now I have to go back because Florida lawmakers say marijuana doesn’t positively affect pain.
    someone please help us

  • never smoked weed before,now at 58 i decided to smoke some……..i have been smoking in the evening every day for over a month now,I FEEL ALIVE,more energy,no pain,sleep like a baby,not bloated,no cramps,etc.this stuff is doing things out of this world to me,,IT,S ALL GOOD,and i thing i,m losing weight,overall puffiness is less.what have you got to lose old mens,,put a little sunshine in your life,this is your time,smoke some weed, the best thing for your old age..i often think it,s a dream.

  • Bro, Is there any Chance of Storage of THC content in Blood,Urine,Hair focalite and Adipose tissues for more than 1 year in body of Over fat guys????

  • Hi, me I’m diabetes types 2 and since i decide to smoke recreationel weed i realise that my blood sugar go back to normal and even my blood pressure and i’m losing weight (last years I was around 230 and now I’m at 198 now) and i’m still eat sugar when i smoke weed “I smoke around 1.5 at 2 gr. a day” ( the side effect of the weed) and i feel better and i have more energie. Do you think it will be better for me to ask for medical weed.

  • From what I recall The US Government has a US PATENT ( since the 90’s)on a process using marijuana for the purpose of helping diabetics get off of insulin.

  • great video bros!! Weed has been my only su-pplement for 14 years..
    I believe it helps keep me lean year round and never have to diet.
    I eat pizza weekly basis and still stay shredded.. Not many bodybuilders can do this (Naturally)
