Parkinson’s Disease (PD) is a disorder of the nervous system that mainly affects the motor-neurons. It is a progressive and permanent condition that begins with slight tremors before gradually advancing to more severe and uncontrollable shaking. The condition is accompanied by other debilitating symptoms like slurred speech, muscle stiffness, and impaired motion. While Parkinson’s sufferers can live long years with the condition, its symptoms greatly compromise their quality of life, often leading to premature death.
While there is still no cure being offered within public domains for Parkinson’s, experimental drugs and therapies are in development, although many of them are showing limited effectiveness. This is there is much excitement around the discovery of the potential effects of cannabinoids found in medical marijuana in patients with PD. Although research findings are still not definitive as to the extent of effectiveness of cannabis in treating PD, there is great promise in its use to ease symptoms in those who suffer with the condition. Florida medical marijuana treatment centers and dispensaries have been distributing medical cannabis in many different forms, making medical marijuana more accessible to patients who want to discover its benefits against PD. Consult with your physician to see whether Florida medical marijuana is something that you can incorporate in your PD treatment and management program.
Numerous research into the effects of medical marijuana in the treatment of different diseases are being conducted around the globe, and while there is a lot of controversy over its risks and benefits, advocates for its use strongly believe in its potential to better certain conditions. For PD, Florida medical marijuana is believed to provide benefits like reduced tremors, pain relief, better sleep quality, ease in movement, and improved overall mood. These benefits are largely attributed to the analgesic and muscle-relaxing effects of the drug. On the other, hand, medical marijuana isn’t without its potential risks, which mostly involve hallucinations, memory problems, mood changes, and impaired thinking and movement. These risk factors can be attributed to prolonged use or abuse of the drug.
Florida medical marijuana comes in a variety of forms. While the FDA doesn’t recognize the actual marijuana as medicine, cannabinoids from the marijuana plant are typically used for treatment, specifically delta 9 tetrahydrocannabinol or THC and cannabidiol or CBD. CBD comes in the form of oils, teas, extracts, food products like candies and brownies, pills, and waxes. In some states, medical marijuana can be purchased over the counter without prescription or medical cannabis license.
