November is National Diabetes Month! Did you know that we have customers that use our Genesis Blend Extracts to combat their Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes symptoms?

One member of our Genesis Blend family shared his personal experience with our Genesis Blend product: “I have been a Type 1 diabetic for 45 years, THIS product has made a significant impact on my comfort and control the past few years and would highly recommend to those who struggle.” – Windy Derrek, loyal customer.

For those of you who were not already aware, if you have diabetes, adding a CBD routine to your daily schedule could offer incredible benefits!

Studies show that full spectrum CBD could have extremely beneficial therapeutic potential those struggling with Type 2 Diabetes. One study in particular studied the effects on “cannabidiol (CBD) and… (THCV)… affecting lipid and glucose metabolism” concluding that THCV could have the potential to “represent a new therapeutic agent in glycemic control in subjects with type 2 diabetes” (Jadoon, et al., 2016).

CBD Test For Those With Type 2 Diabetes

For those of you with diabetes that want to try adding a full spectrum CBD into your everyday routine, here are a few steps to help you recognize the effects our extract may have on your blood sugar levels from our CBD experts:

  1. Check your blood sugar level.
  2. Take 1 full serving of Genesis Blend – Place oil under the tongue and let sit for 20-30 seconds before swallowing.
  3. Wait 45 minutes.
  4. Check your blood sugar level again!
  5. Record your results daily.

We suggest taking the above measures overall several consecutive weeks to see the effect that our Genesis Blend Hemp Extract has on your blood sugar levels! Tracking your progress in a calendar by repeating the above “test” is a fun way to keep tabs on your continued results. Remember that consistency is key when it comes to CBD, so try this method of daily tracking to help you determine your next steps!
