    I have a resting heart rate between 40/50 bpm. My liver releases glucose first thing every morning as soon as my feet hit the floor. And I’m not a cannabis user.

    I've had access to a meter for a long time. Many years back i have also experimented with the "other.."
    One loses focus on the "objective"regarding BG management with cannabis..
    Alcohol is another one where you can loose the plot. However. I personally fair better regarding liver dump on waking. Virtually non existent... (& legal.) ;)

    Just to elaborate @Jim Lahey , (I have no desire to come across as "sardonic.")

    The "CBD" element in cannabis has certain benefits for pain sufferers..
    But, the possible "psychosis" caused by some high THC elements in certain modern cultivated strains?

    I've no need to spell out what the possible anxiety from such a "trip" if a psychotic or paranoid episode is triggered? might actually do to heart rate & associated metabolic reactions...

    The risk is on the user. The user should understand potential risks.

    Back on topic indeed.
    We're talking people claiming curing T1 is possible on this thread. A possible smaller liver dump is very much off topic.
    Any further derailing will be deleted.

    Amazingly these days at my doctors I am being told that any doctor can see me as they all have knowledge of type one diabetes, my reply was to the receptionist at the time, how do know that are you a specialist of knowledge on the subject lol.

    At last someone with sense!!!
    I can remember Daniel Darkes and can not quite put my finger on that case either! And Gran Vicat I admire for staying on and helping out wherever he can.
    BUT the podcast brigade who absolutely believe everything the are hearing about so called cures really need to extract their heads. Read the type 1 forum and see everyones hourly struggles and see how many of them have been "cured".
    I applaud all the type 2s who have turned their condition into remission thru diet......BUT you are still a type 2....your "medicine" is not eating carbs
