Hi there, Jimi,

Could CBD Help Parkinson Patients?

As of 2020, Parkinson’s disease affects around 1 million people in the US, and more than 10 million people around the world. This neurodegenerative disorder costs patients around $2,500 a year [1] and in almost all cases, it’s diagnosed very late. Luckily, recent research might help patients deal with Parkinson’s common side effects.​
Parkinson’s disease: types and symptoms

Researchers have had a hard time finding Parkinson’s treatments because this is a very complex disease. As such, it has many related symptoms and its prognosis depends on both your genetics and environmental factors. This disease changes the brain’s physiology, particularly dopamine receptors. Parkinson’s slowly generates neuronal inclusions -called Lewy bodies- and eventually shuts down specific parts of some neurons.

During early stages of the disease, patients can show slowed movement and impaired posture, as well as speech and writing changes [3]. However, those motor symptoms are also accompanied by non-motor symptoms like pain, fatigue, low blood pressure, and eventually depression, dementia, anxiety and psychosis [4].

Types of Parkinson’s

While it was previously thought this was a single condition, now we know there are at least 3 forms of Parkinson’s, plus other conditions related to it. Treatment and symptoms depend on the specific form you intend to treat:
  • Idiopathic Parkinson’s: this is the traditional condition we recognize as Parkinson’s disease. The most common symptoms are rigidity and tremor, and most people diagnosed with Parkinson’s have this type. As the term indicates, idiopathic parkinsonism has unknown causes but it is the better-studied of them all.
  • Vascular Parkinsonism: these patients develop Parkinson-like symptoms after having cardiovascular issues that affect the brain’s blood supply. This condition usually also involves other neurological issues like sleep problems, mood swings and memory problems. Treatment is based around the specific symptoms.
  • Drug-induced Parkinsonism: some drugs cause Parkinson-like symptoms, but usually they don’t progress further. Generally, symptoms disappear once the drug is stopped.
Since this disease has a slow onset, Parkinson’s patients usually don’t seek help until the condition is quite advanced. This contributes to the difficulty treating it.

Current Parkinson’s treatment is mainly based around dopaminergic drugs. These increase dopamine-related activity in the brain, which is the main source of symptoms for Parkinson’s patients. However, the most common drugs used for treatments improve motor symptoms but don’t affect non-motor issues.

Unfortunately, non-motor symptoms tend to have a greater impact on patient’s quality of life and don’t recede with traditional medication. Luckily, new research points out at CBD as a possible complement for Parkinson’s treatment.

Studies on Parkinson’s treatment

Several studies have looked to see if Cannabidiol has some therapeutic effects on non-motor systems [2], and these studies have found that CBD could have neuroprotective effects. This contrasts with current Parkinson’s treatments available, that don’t have neuroprotective capabilities and instead focus on enhancing dopamine concentration.

However, a recent pilot study examined if CBD could help patients with advanced Parkinson’s disease. This study took 6 diagnosed patients with advanced psychotic symptoms that didn’t respond to lowering their antiparkinsonian medication. Using high CBD doses paired with the rest of their medication, patients showed significant reduction in psychotic symptoms and motor signs without severe side effects [2].

Other studies show a definite link between CBD administration and a reduction in psychiatric symptoms, including anxiety and dementia [2]. As such, CBD could greatly improve Parkinson’s patients’ quality of life by lowering psychiatric symptoms. Of course, this would only be possible when patients don’t have psychiatric comorbidities, like Alzheimer’s or dementia, that aren’t related to Parkinson’s.

In spite of the promising outcomes, studies focusing on the possibilities of CBD treatment for Parkinson’s patients are still scarce. Plus, sample sizes are still relatively small when compared with the population living with the disease.

Luckily, more and more research groups are trying to discover the possible effects of cannabinoids on Parkinson’s disease treatment. We want to be clear that CBD is not a cure for Parkinson’s. It can possibly help with symptoms, and more research needs to be conducted.

What do you think? What’s your experience with this? ..and be sure to forward this to anyone you think needs to see this!

The Munchies Aren’t All Bad!

CBD is the cannabinoid garnering the most attention for its medical potential, but THC is not without its own prowess. In fact, the munchies are actually one of THC’s greatest assets, and it has long been used to reduce nausea and stimulate hunger in patients undergoing chemotherapy, HIV/AIDS-related treatments, and anorexia, among other conditions. So although you may not always appreciate the seemingly unnecessary spike in hunger you experience from cannabis, others rely on it to deal with otherwise difficult-to-treat symptoms.

Hi Jimi
As if chronic pain isn’t enough to deal with, there’s also a wide spectrum of pain associated with having cancer.

Did you know that most cancer pain is caused by the tumor pressing on your bones, nerves, or other organs in the body?

Other times it’s due to chemotherapy treatment.

Either way, these aches, and pains can affect everything from your sleep, emotional state, and appetite to even the simplest tasks in your daily routine.

But you don’t have to live this way nor do you need toxic doses of addictive opioids to provide relief.

By reducing the cancer pain signals in your body, the powerful analgesic effects of the sacred plant can offer major relief.

And this provides you or a loved one a better quality of day-to-day living with minimal pain and an improved mental state, all of which aid healing.

The most effective constituents for pain in cannabis are THC, CBD, and Myrcene, however, these are just a few of many that contribute to relieving pain from cancer.

Experts suggest starting with 1-2 mg of 1:1 whole-plant CBD:THC and working your up slowly from there.

And be sure to only take Myrcene at night as it’s a very powerful sedative that helps you sleep.

To discover more about treating the pain and symptoms associated with cancer...
