Scientists are finding that treating Parkinson’s Disease with cannabis oil makes a significant improvement in the patients’ quality of life. While additional research needs to be done, people suffering from Parkinson’s Disease are choosing to treat their symptoms with cannabidiol (CBD) to find relief.
The CBD treats the psychosis that comes with Parkinson’s. More patients are grateful that their tremors do not get worse and they suffer no side effects. CBD is associated with protection of the brain and nervous system and is praised for its efficiency and safety.
Parkinson’s Disease starts to manifest when there is a shortage of, or damage to, dopaminergic neurons in the brain. Dopamine is a chemical in your brain that affects your emotions, moods, motions and your feelings of pleasure and pain. Dopamine neurotransmitters are found in the substantia nigra, that deep middle region of your brain. Doctors have been treating Parkinson’s Disease with a variety of drugs. Now cannabis oil is the new natural drug that could make a huge difference to patients.
Symptoms of Parkinson’s include shaking limbs, loss of coordination and pain in many parts of the body. People with the disease move more slowly, get stiffer muscles and experience changes in their balance and speech. All of this happens as neurons in the brain start to die or become worn out. Dopamine levels decrease and the brain is in an abnormal state.
Treating Parkinson’s Disease with cannabis oil seems to be the best natural method these days. Not only do patients experience less tremors, but so too do they sleep better, feel less anxiety and are able to mange the many symptoms that come with the disease. Taking CBD alongside conventional drugs will also take the edge off these drugs which can have terrible side effects.
To date, there are no suitable drugs to treat damage to the dopamine balance in the brain. Scientists are therefore turning to the workings of the human endocannabinoid system (ECS). CBD works with the ECS, clinging to certain receptors in the brain called TRPV1 receptors which help to relieve the perception of pain. This means CBD can treat painful conditions such as arthritis, Fibromyalgia, Lupus and other illnesses. CBD also can hinder other receptors called GPR55, better managing blood pressure and bone density.
Best of all, CBD has been shown to stop cancer cells from growing and spreading. CBD can improve the endocannabinoid levels in the brain, protecting them from the neural effects of the condition, including epileptic seizures. This will also assist people suffering from Parkinson’s Disease.
