Obesity and diabetes are two of the major health epidemics plaguing Americans. Marijuana for weight loss may turn out to be just what the doctor ordered to treat this seemingly intractable disorder that is shortening lives, decreasing the quality of life, filling up our nation’s hospitals, and driving health care costs through the roof.
Even though cannabis consumers take in more calories than non-consumers, recent studies have shown that those who use the plant are less likely to be obese, have a lower risk for diabetes and maintain lower body-mass-index measurements.
Now a new study entitled “The Impact of Marijuana Use on Glucose, Insulin and Insulin Resistance among U.S. Adults,” published in the ever-so prestigious American Journal of Medicine, has confirmed that people using marijuana are less likely to develop Type II diabetes, really do have smaller waist circumferences (1 1/2 inches smaller on average than non-cannabis users) and higher levels of HDL cholesterol, the ostensibly good cholesterol that lowers the risk of cardiovascular disease.
