Marijuana, which has been said to be dangerous, has many benefits and uses increasingly revealed. Of course, in the medical dispensary field. Once confirmed to cure cancer, recent research shows that people who regularly smoke marijuana have a lower risk of developing diabetes. Wow!
Diabetes is one of the diseases that has not been used for a long time now, apparently hoping for good news from research conducted by scientists about plants that have been alleged of no benefit.
Cannabis users usually have lower insulin levels. This indicates better blood sugar control.
If the link between marijuana and diabetes prevention is clarified, then chances are researchers will develop diabetes care using substances in marijuana, namely THC (tetra-hydro-cannabinol).
The study, published in The American Journal of Medicine, found that people who smoked marijuana regularly had insulin levels 16 percent lower than people who had never smoked marijuana.
Those who use marijuana are also known to have a smaller waist circumference, while a large waist circumference can increase a person’s risk of developing diabetes.
Currently marijuana is generally used in patients who have cancer or experience severe pain. Then, finally, the use of marijuana as a drug is allowed in 18 American states. Even today, many cannabis producers now have their own licenses such as licensed producers Canada.
Insulin and Glucose Research
This study looked at 4,657 patients. About 579 people used marijuana, 1,975 used marijuana in the past but stopped, and 2,013 people never used marijuana.
Insulin and glucose are measured through blood samples after participants have fasted for nine hours.
From the results of his research, marijuana users have insulin levels 16 percent lower than people who have never used marijuana at all.
Murray Mittleman of the Cardiovascular Epidemiology Research Unit at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center also explained that in previous studies researchers found lower rates of obesity and diabetes in marijuana users.
