Using Cannabis to Treat Diabetes: Jessica Peters / Mara Gordon / Green Flower

Cannabis health experts Jessica Peters and Mara Gordon explore the ways cannabis works (and doesn’t) to treat diabetes, from symptomatic expression to …


  1. Type 2 diabetes symptoms and medication can be eliminated with a whole food plant based diet with no oil Eat all whole foods starch you want, Its been in the medical journals for at least 75 years. Sure plants help since cannabis is a plant. Animal fats inhibit insulin receptors.

  2. So, just trying to absorb what the takeaway message from this is… I’m a type-1 diabetic diagnosed at the age of 9 (now 32), and what I’m hearing is that other than treating a select few symptomatic ailments, there is no reason to believe that this would help me in any way other than alleviating the representations of high blood-sugar that are soreness of the muscles due to keto-acidosis, headaches & pain in the extremities from nerve sensitivity, and insomnia caused by any of the above or any other nervous conditions that cause a general feeling of discomfort at rest? You mention CBD & THC-V have a effect on insulin production, but what about its effectivity? I would very much like to hear how these studies are conducted.

  3. This is my first time hearing about THCV I’m 32 now the first time I smoked I was 10-11 but I feel like I’m allergic to weed.. I love everything about it but the high lol people that have seen me try to smoke have said they’ve never seen anything like it. It’s the most uncomfortable feeling, it’s passed paranoia, it’s almost like I’m fading out and just overall horrible most of the time unless I take a very very minimal hit. Yes I’ve tried all different kinds and levels. Where would I find soemthing with high THCV? If anyone knows or has had the same symptoms as me let me know cuz I’ve yet to find a single soul lol, some say weed makes them feel horrible too but nothing like what I’ve felt lol.

    It’s obvious that some people living with HSV are used to acyclovir and other supplementary Orthodox medicine just to help suppress the HSV virus and not a cure. I have been with the virus since 2015 until I came across some bloggers that narrated stories online on how they got cured from HSV, HPV, HIV, Fibroid, Diabetes, Cancer, Arthritis, Hepatitis, Lupus, Ulcer, Stroke, Epilepsy, etc after using Dr Aduga Herbal Cure who lived in Florida. This is a year and 2 weeks since I was cured from genital Herpes. All thanks to God for using this Great herbalist to cure me. I has promised to keep telling people about the good news of Dr. Aduga. Please feel free to share your problems with him and don’t forget to tell him I refer you to Him. Thanks.

  7. Hi, what a great forum. I'd like to request a prayer for Rick Simpson who have cured my Wife have lung cancer. He was diagnosed about 2 year ago, beat it once and then a few months later it came back in his brain. We have been doing everything possibly, medication wise, and the cancer seems to be immune to chemotherapy and radiation. The doctor talks about this being his last year of life, so I feel like he has lost hope but i didn't. after several online search, I found Cannabis oil so i decided to give it a try and i ordered for it from ( ), things got better as my Wife started using the oil treatment and to God be the glory I didn't lose my lovely Wife to lungs cancer anymore. So i'm here to share this testimony to the world at large as my Wife has been saved by the Cannabis Oil. I'm so glad! Email Dr. Rick Simpson ( )>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

  8. I was cured of Diabetes with the use of natural herbs. I love herbs so much. Sometimes, injection and drugs are just a waste of time. I was cured 8months ago but i had to wait for some months and did so many tests during this period to confirm that i am truly cured. I suffered from Diabetes for 2years, but with the help of Dr Eguabor herbal medicines,i was cured within some few weeks of drinking the herbs he sent to me through courier delivery service. This same doctor also cured my Aunty from herpes. As soon as i heard she had herpes,i referred her to the doctor and she was cured after drinking his herbs.I have since then referred about 4 persons and they were all cured from their various illnesses. Have you tried herbs before?. You have spent so much money on drugs,injections, etc and yet you have no good result to show for it. Dr Eguabor is a herbalist doctor,i believe he can help you if you can follow his instructions and drink his natural herbs. He has herbs that cures Covid-19,HIV, Herpes, Cancer, Asthma, Hepatitis, etc. Contact Dr Eguabor by or Call/WhatsApp on:+2348107439905

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.
