Cannabis Use to Relieve Symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease
This research by the Cannabis Education and Research Institute (CERI) shows that people living with Parkinson’s Disease (PD) are turning to Cannabis for relief of their symptoms and that a substantial percentage of them are finding symptom relief. CERI believes there is potential for Cannabis for patients living with Parkinson’s disease and hopes this study prompts further research. The study also found that a substantial number of people using Cannabis for symptoms of Parkinson’s disease are reluctant to discuss their use with their physicians. We hope that this research will encourage health care providers to learn more about Cannabis and to be more open to discussing Cannabis with patients interested in using the botanical.
