Based on a lot of preliminary studies, CBD might have a lot of uses. But while we know about its possible use for epilepsy, pain, and inflammation (to name a few), we overlook other prominent health conditions.

We don't have any human data, but the research available means we can be cautiously optimistic about CBD oil for diabetics.

Is CBD Oil Good for Diabetes?

Yes, CBD oil could be good for diabetes. We say "could" because research is limited to rodents. But even though we don't have much data, one study from 2016 gives us reason to be optimistic.

What Does CBD Do for Diabetes?

The 2016 study examined the effects of CBD in non-obese diabetic mice. Researchers found that mice treated with CBD showed a lower inflammatory cell reaction. It also reportedly helped fight a pancreatic disease called destructive insulitis.

There's a lot more to learn, but if these benefits work equally well on humans, it could help delay, minimize, or even prevent the onset of diabetes.

Reduced Inflammation

The key to CBD's success in the above experiment likely lies in its anti-inflammatory properties. By fighting inflammation, CBD inadvertently becomes a potential tool against diabetes.


CBD oil for diabetics is a new concept - and it's barely on our radar. With so little to go on, you need to be careful before adding CBD to your daily routine. Ask a doctor about your condition and if any medications you take could interact with CBD.
