Medical marijuana is quite a popular headline in the news today. Ok, I admit, that back in the 70's when I was in high school, sure, pot was fun to experiment with. But the marijuana of today seems to be 100 times stronger than the stuff I used to smoke back then.
Every now and then, I'll cave into a food craving and do something stupid like eat corn and mashed potatoes. 1 hour later my BSL is in the 300's and I am being told to go to ER for insulin. But I have found that when I spike up, if I smoke some weed, 1/2 hour later, my BSL is back down to 100. And it stays there. Even when I get the munchies and continue to pig out, it still stays in range.
Now don't get me wrong, I am not condoning marijuana as any type of alternative for insulin or pills. I have noticed that it works for me. I am not going to smoke marijuana on a daily basis to keep my blood sugar in check. Diet and exercise can do that. But, if for whatever reason I do spike up again, I know that MM can help aleviate the high BSL.
