Diabetic Neuropathy

Moderate to High

Cannabis for Diabetic Neuropathy

One of the most common side-effects of suffering from diabetes for a long time is neuropathic (nerve) pain. This is because dysregulated insulin production can cause nerves to “frazzle”. High blood sugar (glucose) can injure nerves throughout your body, but in particular your hands and feet.

CBD, CBG and THCV show particular promise not only for regulating and increasing insulin production, but also for treating nerve pain. Cannabinoids may not only keep chronic inflammation and neuropathic pain at bay, but also lower the risk of diabetes and potentially even ward off the disease entirely.
