New Study: Those with History of Cannabis Use Are Less Likely to Have Diabetes

Diabetic patient doing glucose level blood testIndividuals with a history of cannabis use are less likely to have diabetes, according to a new study being published in the journal Epidemiology, and published online ahead of print by the U.S. National Institute of Health.

“Recently active cannabis smoking and diabetes mellitus are inversely associated,” claim reservoirs after performing a meta-study assessing cannabis use and diabetes in the general population. “Current evidence is too weak for causal inference, but there now is a more stable evidence base for new lines of clinical translational research on a possibly protective (or spurious) cannabis smoking-diabetes mellitus association suggested in prior research”.

Researchers estimate that subjects with a history of cannabis use were roughly 30% less likely to have diabetes compared to non-using subjects.
