Abstract

There are limited data regarding the relationship between cannabinoids and metabolic processes. Epidemiologic studies have found lower prevalence rates of obesity and diabetes mellitus in marijuana users compared with people who have never used marijuana, suggesting a relationship between cannabinoids and peripheral metabolic processes. To date, no study has investigated the relationship between marijuana use and fasting insulin, glucose, and insulin resistance.

Score in context

This research output has an Altmetric score of 669. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This score was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 02 February 2016.
All research outputs
#1,252
of 4,747,790 outputs
Outputs from American Journal of Medicine
#2
of 2,452 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#40
of 91,280 outputs
Outputs of similar age from American Journal of Medicine
#1
of 29 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 4,747,790 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 99th percentile: it's in the top 5% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 2,452 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean score of 7.2. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 99% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this score to the 91,280 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 99% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 29 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 96% of its contemporaries.
