Cannabis and parkinsons

Discussion in 'Medical Marijuana Usage and Applications' started by wind dodger, Mar 11, 2012.

  1. Hey blades how is it going? I was just curious if cannabis has any medical benefits for suffer's of Parkinson's disease? My grandfather is in his early 60's and has had Parkinson's for quite awhile, I'm 19 and would like to find ways to help him
     
  2. There are a LOT of studies on Parkinsin's and cannabinoids! Click that first link in my sig for everything up to 2010. And here is 2010 to the present-

    Get him on Omega 3 ASAP! You need it for a healthy endocannabinoid system- just trust me on this- or this post gets REALLY long!





    Hope that helps!



    Granny :wave:
     
  3. Thanks granny :D so if I wanted to introduce him to cannabis I should try an edible form and try having him take fish oil or something with it's of omega -3
     
  4. NOT AN EDIBLE!!! It is WAY too easy to have "one bite too many" even with experienced cannabis users! A vaporizer is the best way, smoking is second, then tinctures and last edibles!

    Vaporizers are easier on the lungs. They use less and you get more THC out of your cannabis. And the "left-overs" can be used to make passable brownies!
     
  5. Alright thank you, I own a vaporizer now so that's good
