MEDICAL MARIJUANA AND PARKINSON'S
The only medicine that really helps
"Hi Harry, How are you feeling? Great, well I'm not ready for the Olympics, but compared to before my medicine, I feel like the gold medal winner."
The best way to take the marijuana tincture (with THC and / or CBD) is put it under your tongue and rub it in your cheek, don't use too much, or you're going to be asleep all afternoon, when you should be up.
MMJDoctoronline: Some strains of marijuana are energising and other kinds are sedating. Straight THC in tinctures tends to be a nighttime medicine.
First timers, don't try to communicate and think too much, just relax see what happens. We know from animal experiments that the endogenous cannabinoid system is very important in regulating motor activity .... and that very type of activity is impaired in Parkinson's disease.
From animal experiments, we also know that boosting certain branches of the endocannabinoid system is helpful in relieving symptoms of Parkinson's. Finally, from anecdotal information, we know that certain patients who smoke marijuana experience relief of Parkinsonian symptoms. I see the patient is calm down so much it;s amazing. He used just a single drop and his hands are now ROCKSTEADY and the dyskinesia has left. The marijuana works most of the time and up until now, nothing else works.
The number-one frustration that it's been leaked that the Federal Government has long known about these kinds of medical effects, but they buried the research for years, so marijuana was sitting there with this untapped potential. What marijuana is teaching us is about our times, the tyranny of the establishment, the blockage of new medicines and society was stuck in a rut now for more than fifty years, because of financial issues or political issues, and that is extremely frustrating.
There is no doubt that medical marijuana controls dyskinesia and yet it's not it's not available many of us Parkinson's sufferers.
If you've read this article and believe the content, yet don't take action, are you compliant with forces that are at the root that cause suffering? Are you exactly like the german citizen, who stood by, who buried their heads in the sand, while the Nazi's laid waste to Europe.
Please take a hard look in the mirror each morning every day and ask yourself, am I going to do something for the group today. Or Not?
Cannabis could be an excellent alternative to, or addition to, the medication regime of someone suffering from PD. Unfortunately, many of the conventional medications prescribed for a Parkinson’s patient also come with significant, negative side effects that are not present in medical marijuana. Medical cannabis offers a combination of anti-anxiety, anti-oxidant and pain relief all in one medication.
Clinical Evidence in Favor for Medical Marijuana and Parkinson's
Among the many studies, experiments and university papers relating to the benefits of medical cannabis for PD patients, Dr. Sevcik J, Masek K, Institute of Pharmacology, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, Prague said “Cannabinoids might alleviate some Parkinsonian symptoms by their remarkable receptor mediated modulatory-action in the basal ganglia (motor neurons) output nuclei. Furthermore, it was recently observed that some cannabinoids are potent antioxidants that protect neurons from death - even without cannabinoid receptor activation. It seems that cannabinoids might delay.....
According to David Esparza, a patient who has lived with PD for over thirteen years and has experienced negative side effects from standard therapy, Marijuana helps me with my attitude, it helps me with my shaking, it helps me deal with my new life… I don’t know how I look to other people… but I know what I feel like - when using marijuana -… I feel good.... click header to continue.
According to a study published in Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry In 2013, the cannabinoid THC (the psychoactive cannabinoid) also may prove useful in the treatment of PD by assisting in the prevention of damage caused by free radicals and activating a receptor whose stimulation causes the formation of new mitochondria - cellular energy ... click header to continue.
When you are in pain, stiff, suffering from PARKINSON’S DISEASE, you take just about anything that will bring relief. Members of a certain generation likely tried marijuana, before they had PARKINSON’S DISEASE and found the results pleasurable. Now, even when those same pleasurable effects can treat a disabling disease, political controversy impedes the Food and Drug Administration restricts researchers from conducting important clinical trials.
An observational study recently done in Israel showed considerable improvement in tremors, muscle rigidity, pain when subjects were tested thirty minutes after inhaling marijuana. Twenty subjects, all about sixty six years of age and diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease for over seven years, were tested using the Unified Parkinson’s Disease Rating Scale both before and thirty minutes after smoking cannabis in the clinic. Their scores on tremor, rigidity and bradykinesia all decreased significantly and the subjects claimed the benefit lasted for two to three hours after smoking. Fine motor skills were also improved and twelve of subjects reported major improvements in their sleep while 8 said that their sleep was somewhat improved.
Evidence suggests that marijuana could potentially slow the progression of Parkinson’s by furnishing neuroprotective effects. The cannabinoids found in marijuana are able to suppress the excitotoxicity, glial activation and oxidative injury that causes the degeneration of the dopamine-releasing neurons. In addition, they improve the function of cell’s mitochondria and activation of cellular debris clearance, further encouraging neuron health.
Researchers have evidence that one specific cannabinoid found in marijuana,THC, helps in the treatment of Parkinson’s disease by preventing damage caused by free-radicals and activating a receptor that assists in the formation of new mitochondria.
Another major cannabinoid found in marijuana,CBD, has also demonstrated its ability to support the health of neural cell mitochondria, causing the researchers to conclude that CBD should be considered as a potential therapeutic option in neurodegenerative disorders like Parkinson’s because of its neuroprotective properties.
Studies have also shown that cannabinoids interact with the endocannabinoid system’s cannabinoid receptors, CB-1 & CB-2, to modulate the release of dopamines.
MMJDoctorOnline: Until 2018, to buy marijuana legally in California and Nevada, everyone needs a licensed 420 physician's recommendation to purchase any product with THC or CBD in it from dispensaries, compassion clubs, online delivery services, cannabis clinics. We also supply Cannabis ID and cultivation permits same day and patients don't pay, unless they are approved.
