Exciting medical marijuana news
Cannabis research is making strides as scientists strive to cure numerous neurodegenerative diseases, including Parkinson's disease and Multiple Sclerosis, or MS. The Clinical Neuropharmacology medical journal recently released enlightening study results that show the way that smoked cannabis positively affects Parkinson's patients. The clinical study was not conclusive, but did indicate that smoked cannabis may indeed improve Parkinson's symptoms such as tremors, pain, edginess and muscle stiffness. In addition, the study concluded that inhaled marijuana helps Parkinson's patients sleep better and feel less depressed, reports BigBuds magazine.
Parkinson's Disease is a malady that mostly affects people who are 50 years of age or older. Not everyone stricken with PD is that old, however. The late heavyweight boxer, Muhammad Ali, was in his early 40s when he was diagnosed with Parkinson's after a long career in boxing. Actor Michael J. Fox was diagnosed at the tender age of 30. If cannabis proves to be a cure for neurodegenerative illnesses, it will spell good news for many people and their loved ones.
More research is needed, of course. Nonetheless, it is already known that cannabis and CBD may serve as a muscle relaxer, antispasmodic and analgesic. The wonder weed may be an effective neurological restorer, as well. Why does it work? Researchers a re excited to find out if it's true that cannabinoids have neuroprotective properties that may limit or even reverse neural degeneration. Even if cannabis only slows the progression of these awful conditions, it must be considered pretty good medicine. Medicine you can grow with products from a Maine seed bank, or ours.
