Cannabinoid Research Studies
Procana is accepting applications to further its own studies in these areas.
What is Diabetes?
Diabetes is a disease that occurs when your blood glucose, also called blood sugar, is too high. Blood glucose is your main source of energy and comes from the food you eat. Insulin, a hormone made by the pancreas helps glucose from food get into your cells to be used for energy. Sometimes your body doesn’t make enough—or any—insulin or doesn’t use insulin well. Glucose then stays in your blood and doesn’t reach your cells. Over time, having too much glucose in your blood can cause health problems
The most common types of diabetes are type 1, type 2, and gestational diabetes. If. you have type 1 diabetes, your body does not make insulin. Your immune system attacks and destroys the cells in your pancreas that make insulin. Type 1 diabetes is usually diagnosed in children and young adults, although it can appear at any age. People with type 1 diabetes need to take insulin every day to stay alive. If you have type 2 diabetes, your body does not make or use insulin well. You can develop type 2 diabetes at any age, even during childhood. However, this type of diabetes occurs most often in middle-aged and older people. Type 2 is the most common type of diabetes. Gestational Diabetes develops in some women when they are pregnant. Most of the time, this type of diabetes goes away after the baby is born. However, if you’ve had gestational diabetes, you have a greater chance of developing type 2 diabetes later in life. Sometimes diabetes diagnosed during pregnancy is actually type 2 diabetes.
Procana Medical Studies [Apply]
Procana is accepting applicants to participate in medical studies of controlled dosage CBD for the treatment of Diabetes. “CBD” Cannabidiol subset studies will be derived from either Cannabis “Marijuana” or Industrial Hemp. Other medical studies may include ratios of “THC” Tetrahydrocannabinol derived from Cannabis, also known as Marijuana to study the treatment for Diabetes.
Procana does not warrant, nor does it have approval from the FDA to claim, diagnose or treat any illness or disease with its products containing Hemp, Cannabis or Marijuana with THC or CBD for the treatment of Diabetes.

Most of the PubMed material consists of abstracts on preclinical research involving single cannabinoid molecules, test tubes, petri dishes, animal experiments, and in some cases human cell-line studies. Although all mammals have cell receptors that respond pharmacologically to cannabinoid compounds, data from animal experiments and other preclinical research is not always applicable to humans.
This data may include articles, surveys, studies or opinions related to THC and CBD from either Marijuana, Cannabis or Hemp in the use of Diabetes. This information is for research purposes only, and does not include the use of Procana products.
