CBD and Diabetes

Type 2 Diabetes, the leading diabetic condition, and the symptoms of patients with diabetes can be eased with CBD! 

Here are the usual symptoms of type 2 diabetes: 

  • Increased thirst
  • Frequent urination
  • Increased hunger
  • Unintended weight loss
  • Fatigue
  • Blurred vision
  • Slow-healing sores
  • Frequent infections
  • Numbness or tingling in the hands or feet
  • Areas of darkened skin, usually in the armpits and neck


If you are experiencing some of these symptoms and you have not been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes it's important to speak with your healthcare professional ASAP!

Once Type 2 diabetes has been diagnosed and properly managed through medication there may still be after-effects from when the condition was undiagnosed! If you were unaware of type 2 diabetes then you may be experiencing these lasting issues:

Diabetic Neuropathy- Symptoms can include pain and burning sensations, especially in the hands and feet. This is related to nerve damage. 

CBD is equipped to help manage and reduce the pain from this nerve damage. Delta Premium topicals are perfect for relieving pain! Try our body butter

Besides the nerve damage, you may be struggling with insulin resistance. 

Type 2 diabetes can cause or be caused by several hormone imbalances. Thanks to the ECS (Endocannabinoid System) CBD is a great option to help regulate and balance these systems. Take a quick look at an excerpt from this reputable online health website concerning diabetes and the effects of CBD: 

Blood Sugar Control

When combined with a THC-based compound (the chief intoxicant in cannabis), CBD helped people with type 2 diabetes better control their blood sugar levels, according to a 2016 study that looked at blood sugar levels when fasting.3

The study found that CBD alone:

  • Decreased resistin: A hormone that can contribute to insulin resistance
  • Increased glucose-dependent insulinotropic peptide: A hormone that prompts the release of insulin
  • This indicates that CBD could help with some of the hormonal imbalances that contribute to the development of type 2 diabetes. “

    Finally, whenever a person discovers they have been living with type 2 diabetes there are recommended lifestyle changes. These changes can feel foreign and overwhelming to incorporate which leads to stress and anxiety. 

    Stress and anxiety lead to higher levels of the hormone, Cortisol. Cortisol is known for raising blood sugar levels and disrupting healthy hormone patterns, contributing to insulin resistance.
