  1. Preventing Pain associated with Diabetes, through Cannabis: A study under the American Pain Society in 2015 states that when 16 patients with peripheral neuropathy were introduced with four different dosing sessions of inhaled cannabis between 1-7% of THC level, it helped these patients to reduce neuropathic pain associated with diabetes.

Using Cannabinoid Receptors in treating Diabetes: A study issued under the Handbook of Experimental Pharmacology in 2011 talks about the relationship between the metabolic disorder of diabetes and activation of cannabinoid receptors. According to the research, the activation of cannabinoid receptors through the ingestion of CBD had a positive reaction on the retard Beta cells of the body, the cells that when damaged can lead to diabetes.
  3. Cannabis and Diabetes Regularity: A paper published under the Epidemiology Centre of Cambridge in 2015 shows that ingesting a certain amount of Cannabis can protect people from diabetes. This finding was based on a collective review of many health survey results.
  4. Reducing the Risk of Diabetes through Cannabis: A study was conducted by the Journal of Diabetes Research in 2016, in which the researchers surveyed about 20,000 people suffering from Type-2 Diabetes.  The research shows that the regular cannabis user has less risk of having diabetes.
