Scientific Research into Medicinal Cannabis – Parkinson’s Disease
Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a long-term degenerative disorder of the central nervous system that mainly affects the motor system The symptoms generally come on slowly over time. Early in the disease, the most obvious are shaking, rigidity, slowness of movement, and difficulty with walking. Thinking and behavioral problems may also occur.
Parkinson’s disease affects the nerve cells in the brain that produce dopamine. Parkinson’s disease symptoms include muscle rigidity, tremors, and changes in speech and gait. After diagnosis, treatments can help relieve symptoms, but there is no cure.
