Does anyone find that cannabis helps with their diabetes?

    With all of the new research being done into the endo and Exo cannabinoid systems and how they can play a part in helping many ailments I was wondering if anyone has found cannabis to have a positive effect on their diabetes (be that with helping tame irratic blood glucose levels, with neuropathy pain, for any eye problems) and of so what was your method of consumption (cannabutter, oil (cbd/thc) or the old fashioned smoking)

    From my own experience many years ago, I'd hesitate to experiment on my T2 with weed. Or resin, as was more common in those days (and yes, I inhaled). For me, the munchies would be my downfall. However, if the desired effect on blood glucose comes from a non-psychoactive compound, I'd happily give it a go.
