    I know that hash is lowering the bloodsugar, but how?

    where does the sugar go?

    Is hash acting like insulin, and push the sugar into the muscle?

    I know for a fact that hash is lowering the level of sugar in the blood.

    A research is showing the same thing, look at this link.

    My question is, where is the sugar going?

    That "research" consists of a test on one subject who also happens to be a diabetic. That's what we in the scientific community call "anecdotal evidence" - it proves nothing.

    How do you "know" that it lowers blood sugar when peer-reviewed real research says it doesn't?

    Im a bodybuilder, and many of my friends are BB's to. And its commen for us that hash is lowering the sugar in the blood. Just after smoking, the sugar level falls. friends have been seeing it, when they check the sugar level while on cycle with insulin/steriods.

    Dude, it ain't the pot that's behind the hypoglycemia, it's the damn insulin.
    Pot stimulates appetite, no effect on blood sugar. :mj:

    I know this is an old post but I do hope you found your answer. I 2 am looking as to the "how" it lowers. Being that was 2005, and this is now (2011) im sure most people know that it lowers it. If you don't you are YEARS behind the times...

    good luck in your research!
