    I’ve been diabetic for 26 years and my road with this illness was very bumpy. I used to have lots of informations in my body almost every month. I’ve got neuropathy and kidney failure plus high blood pleasure. But the last two months literally changed my life! I added to my diet CBD oil, that is organic and pure and it gave me a new life. My sugars are better and I take less insulin as well. My doctors are very surprised and pleased in the same time. So if you think of any alternative therapies, go for CBD. Some people are against it or scared but I can truly recommend that to everyone. I got all my pills stopped by a doctor as I don’t need them any more

    When I read this I had no idea what CBD oil was, but I Googled and found this useful explanation:
    https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/317221.php
    It appears that CBD oil may help T1s, but there is no mention in the article of it's benefitting T2s.

    I’ve used it for neuropathic pain in my foot and found it really helpful. Hadn’t heard of any benefits for diabetes though.

    There's plenty of online sites. Ammalife in Bristol is a good one.

    Can I ask what strength the cbd oil you are using is and whether it contains any THC in it?
    I know Holland and Barratts are selling it but someone told me that it isn’t very effective as it’s cbd content is to low to have any benefits. Also I’ve heard that cbd oil that contains THC is much more beneficial?

    CBD oil saved me from diabetic complications. I have been taking it for the past 18 months. I have better control, take less insulin, and I healed proliferative retinopathy with high doses of CBD. I have all the papers to show. Some Doctors do not accept this unfortunately.

    I don't use it personally, though several friends do. CBD oil that is legally sold does not have THC, as far as I know. I thought that's the illegal bit. You'll have to do the research re the strength. I've also heard that H&B is too weak to be of use.

    Even more uses for this wonderful plant, when will the U.K. catch up with the states. Medicinal cannabis has many benefits.

    I’ve been reading studies from Israel for years showing that cannabis in the right forms can be very effective in aiding diabetes.

    Few off the top of my head, Increased insulin sensitivity, slimmer waste lines (if you don’t control the famous munchies then that could be hard, especially as a diabetic) as metabolic rate increases around 17% add around 15% more sensitivity to your insulin as well some studies are boasting.

    I use the 2.75% from the Dutch Holland & Barret, the brand is Jacob Hooy. It's a low percentage, but works for me. I started taking it for my rheumatism (worked wonders!), but happend to lower my bs too. Yay!

    I get mine from CBD Brothers too, not long started, but having looked at the forums CBD Brothers came very highly recommended. I have started using it as I am disabled with chronic pain, have M.E., high occular pressure and diabetic neuropathy affecting my feet. I think that's a long enough list hahahaha! I am currently using the blue and purple oils, the blue during the day and purple at night.

    Wowzaaasss!!! I never knew they where charging that much for the cbd oil. Some of that is extortionate, is the world really this bad.

    I think as a diabetic I shouldn’t be surprised giving the vast profits the massive pharmaceuticals make off us being diabetic.

    What a sad world, a plant extract costing that much.

    I know many Type 1 and 2 diabetics in South Africa who have stopped insulin altogether through the use of cannabinoids.

    Cannabinoids are great for many things, including helping diabetics to come off insulin. I know many in South Africa who are using a CBD/THC combination made with specific strains to treat diabetes who are insulin free now.
