Metabolic Syndrome Seen Lower in Cannabis Users

November 17, 2015

According to a recent study published in The American Journal of Medicine, "Current marijuana use is associated with lower odds of metabolic syndrome across emerging and middle-aged US adults." They showed a reduction of approximately 50% when compared to non-cannabis users.


It has been hypothesized that the obesity-induced inflammatory process may lead to complications such as hypertension, atherosclerosis, dyslipidemia, insulin resistance, and diabetes, which characterize metabolic syndrome.


After reviewing a study of 8500 people aged 20-59, they found that 19.5% of those who had  never used cannabis ever were subject to metabolic syndrome; those having used cannabis previously was 17.5% prone; and current cannabis users were at 13.8%.


This evidence can be attributed to the activation of the ECS (endocannabinoid system) as we have seen the ECS has great influence on metabolic syndrome.


By exercising at the right intensity level and balancing our omega 3 to omega 6 intake, we can help activate the ECS. Remember, the ECS is a homeostatic regulator of inflammation. Metabolic syndrome is related to chronic inflammation.
