Cannabis Compound Eyed As Possible Diabetes Treatment

A Marin County doctor says his research into medical marijuana has identified a compound that can help diabetes patients.

Dr. Michael Moskowitz, President of Bay Area Pain Medical Associates, says its not about getting high, its about getting well and he thinks hes on to something.

Moskowitz believes he has identified a rare component of marijuana called THCV that he says is helping one of his diabetic patients a patient whos blood sugar level varies between 50 and 1000 in a single day.

Its not clear, but it appears that, on a preliminary basis, for the first month that he did that, the extent of how much he varied seems to be less, said Moskowitz.

Interesting but sounds a bit self-serving.

Headline and article aren't justified based on results from 1 patient.
