The level of glucose in human blood depends on the continuous cooperation between two types of cells in the pancreas. Alpha cells secrete glucagon hormone that increases glucose in blood, while the beta cells secrete insulin, the hormone decreasing glucose concentration. Scientists have recently discovered that the alpha and beta cells communicate with each other, and the central role in this communication is played by cannabinoids – organic compounds that occur in nature also in inflorescences of cannabis. In recent studies it has also been shown that cannabinoids have an impact on the identity of the beta cells, and in human embryos they may lead to significant changes in the architecture of a forming pancreatic islets.
