Much is continuing to be learned on how CBD can help people suffering from both Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes.

Diabetes is one of the most prevalent, and hard to treat, diseases today. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), over 100 million U.S. adults are now living with diabetes or prediabetes.
