CBD for Parkinson’s – can it really help?Cannabidiol, or CBD for short, is an active cannabinoid found in cannabis. It constitutes 40% of the plant extract. The special property of the active ingredient is that, unlike the cannabinoid THC, it is not psychoactive. As a result, it is safe to use for therapeutic purposes. Because the patient does not go “high” and only minor side effects are possible, the desired medical impact is readily apparent. Cannabidiol has a wide range of clinical applications. Given that certain studies have demonstrated that CBD may be used successfully to treat depression, anxiety, and nerve illnesses, it is reasonable to anticipate that CBD could also be used successfully to treat Parkinson’s disease. However, because the majority of tests have been conducted on animals, these findings cannot be applied 100% to humans. However, the likelihood of seeing remission from Parkinson’s symptoms is anticipated to be relatively significant when CBD is used.
Effects of taking CBD for Parkinson’s diseaseParkinson’s disease affects approximately 300,000 persons in Germany alone. Men are more likely than women to get the disease, and the risk increases with age. Three disease phases define the degenerative nerve system condition. CBD can have a soothing effect, especially in the early stages, when the disease manifests itself with occasional, relatively harmless muscle stiffness. While conducting study on cannabis’ medical benefits, experts discovered that CBD oil greatly improved the well-being of Parkinson’s disease patients. After consuming CBD oil, individuals reported decreased pain, increased appetite, and improved sleeping conditions. The researchers attributed this to cannabidiol’s analgesic and anticonvulsant properties.
Test subjects’ positive comments encourage Parkinson’s patientsParkinson’s causes a slow loss of nerve cells in the brain that produce dopamine. This leads to an imbalance of the important messenger substances dopamine, acetylcholine and glutamate. Unfortunately, there is no cure for Parkinson’s, at least to this day. Although research continues, whether a healing method can be found is in the stars. Nevertheless, according to experience reports, suffering from Parkinson’s disease can at least be alleviated with CBD. Additionally, research indicates that the ingestion of CBD oil may in some cases contribute to the disease’s growth being slowed. Due to the psychoactive nature of many Parkinson’s medications and pain relievers routinely used in Parkinson’s patients, many patients now prefer CBD for Parkinson’s. Sedation with standard pain drugs has the result of many patients falling into a trance and becoming entirely apathetic. CBD in Parkinson’s – high dosage required However, studies have demonstrated that CBD is beneficial in Parkinson’s patients, only at high doses. A daily dose of 300 mg cannabidiol was able to greatly improve the well-being and quality of life of the majority of test subjects. However, it must be emphasized that here, of course, only the symptoms and not the causes of the disease are influenced. What do studies say about CBD in Parkinson’s disease? Parkinson’s disease is one of the diseases that CBD research is focusing on, as CBD has significant potential to help. Researchers discovered in 2018 that CBD aids by boosting levels of the endocannabinoid anandamide, one of the cannabinoid receptor support substances. Additionally, it is believed to aid in other processes that are beneficial to Parkinson’s patients, such as those involving serotonin receptors. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) of the United States of America (USA) have conducted similar studies about magic mushroom seeds. They indicate that CBD may aid with Parkinson’s disease symptoms due to a direct link between endocannabinoids, cannabinoid receptors, and the Parkinson’s disease-associated neurons in the central nervous system. Other research indicated that 30 minutes after consuming medical marijuana, tremors, stiffness, and bradykinesia eased. The fact that study is ongoing and results are being revealed benefits all patients affected and their families. Cannabidiol and Parkinson’s: No guarantees, but often helpful Researchers are doing everything possible to make life easier for patients with Parkinson’s disease. As a result, high-quality products that aids in the treatment of Parkinson’s disease are being put into production.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

Mr. BC Seeds is an over educated old school hippy who has been involved in the cannabis industry since the 1970's. He is one of the most experienced marijuana breeders in Canada if not the entire world. He was the first to use the most advanced breeding techniques in 2008 to create 42 of the world's strongest cannabis strains. He has been writing in-depth articles about cannabis in Canada for decades and looks forward to continue bringing you cutting edge cannabis strains for the decades to come. Mr. BC Seeds uses a "pen name" because he still travels the world collecting cannabis strains and continues researching cannabis in laboratories of non-legalized countries.
