Doug’s Varin strain has high THCV, which is thought to lower blood sugar levels and improve fasting insulin levels. Harlequin is another strain that can be helpful for diabetic patients. It contains higher CBD and lower THC. The high CBD provides anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects, which are desirable effects in the context of hyperglycemia. If you gear towards strains containing THCV and/or CBD, then you are most likely to benefit from improved glycemic control (Jadoon et al., 2016). See link to review a study done by Jadoon et al.
