16 May CBD & Blood Sugar: Endocannabinoid System & Blood Sugar levels
The compounds found in Cannabis known as cannabinoids interact with our ECS protein receptors.
Your ECS is one of the most important physiologic systems involved in establishing and maintaining human health. Endocannabinoids and their receptors are found throughout the body: in the brain, organs, connective tissues, glands, and immune cells.
CBD interacts with non-ECS protein receptors that control insulin sensitivity and glucose metabolism to manage blood sugar levels.
CBD and Insulin Sensitivty
Insulin sensitivity is how sensitive your body is to the effect of insulin, for example, if someone is insulin sensitive that person will require a certain amount of insulin to lower their blood sugars. The good news is that cannabinoids interact with non-ECS protein receptors which control insulin sensitivity and has been proven to help make rodents less insulin sensitive. Cannabinoids also enhance glucose metabolism by interacting with the same non-ECS protein receptors that also manage how glucose is passed through the blood. We always recommend speaking with your doctor before starting any new dietary program.
