Síndrome Metabólico


Cannabis para Síndrome Metabólico

Metabolic syndrome is a term used for when a person suffers from a combination of diabetes, hypertension (high blood pressure) and obesity. This puts a person at greater risk of coronary heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, liver disease and many other health problems.

Now, there are several aspects of metabolic disorder cannabinoids could be very helpful with. Tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV), cannabidiol (CBD) and cannabigerol (CBG) could all be useful in treating diabetes, as they have been shown to improve metabolism and decreased blood glucose levels in human and animal models of diabetes.

Low doses of THCV combined with CBD, CBG and the terpene humulene may curb hunger, and there are several studies showing that cannabis users have a lower body mass index (BMI). This makes cannabis great for obesity as well.

As for hypertension, the benefits of cannabis are a bit more complex. This is because, after inhaling cannabis, blood pressure and heart rate rises for about 30 minutes, before tapering off and actually lowering, at least in older adults. This means that, although cannabis may potentially be used to treat hypertension, it needs to be dosed carefully, w and in the right setting.
