Parkinson’s disease affects the central nervous system, but it doesn’t impact everyone the same way. Some patients will experience tremors and changes in facial expressions. As the disease progresses, a patient could experience debilitating muscle stiffness, loss of balance and other symptoms that affect his or her ability to move.
Medical marijuana’s properties and capability to reduce pain and inflammation make it a desirable treatment for Parkinson’s disease. Recent studies of human cell cultures (in the laboratory) of Parkinson’s disease have shown that the active ingredients in marijuana plants, THC and CBD, directly fight the disease and relieve its symptoms.
Compared with accepted pharmaceutical therapies for this condition, medical cannabis is remarkably safe and may even be used to treat side effects of other medications. There has never been a reported death due to overdose and most adverse events occur early in therapy and go away on their own.
