Diabetes in America is becoming a normal occurrence. In fact, there are over 37 million Americans with diabetes. That means that approximately 12% of people in America have already developed diabetes. There is, however, new evidence from a study showing that CBD may actually minimize the incidence of diabetes.
“We now report that CBD treatment significantly reduces the incidence of diabetes in NOD mice from an incidence of 86% in non-treated control mice to an incidence of 30% in CBD-treated mice. CBD treatment also resulted in the significant reduction of plasma levels of the pro-inflammatory cytokines, IFN-γ and TNF-α. Th1-associated cytokine production of in vitroactivated T-cells and peritoneal macrophages was also significantly reduced in CBD-treated mice, whereas production of the Th2-associated cytokines, IL-4 and IL-10, was increased when compared to untreated control mice. Histological examination of the pancreatic islets of CBD-treated mice revealed significantly reduced insulitis. Our results indicate that CBD can inhibit and delay destructive insulitis and inflammatory Th1-associated cytokine production in NOD mice resulting in a decreased incidence of diabetes possibly through an immunomodulatory mechanism shifting the immune response from Th1 to Th2 dominance.”
With as much as diabetes is growing nationally, and internationally, it is encouraging to see that there may be methods to help reverse this trend. If CBD treatments reduced the incidence of diabetes by 56% in mice, there should be hope in reversing our current diabetic trends.
