How CBD Oil can help with Parkinson’s Disease? (PD)
Medical studies have shown the positive effects of the use of CBD (Cannabidiol), on patients suffering from Parkinson’s Disease, and from a range of other physical and neurological disorders. Although the relief to MS sufferers from hemp/marijuana-derived products has been medically confirmed, widely publicised, and accepted by medical practitioners, it is only now that CBD has also been shown to be effective against rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, bowel disorders, and nausea.
Recent medical research shows that CBD helps reduce the physical symptoms of Parkinson’s disease in several ways, including:
1. Sleep disorders – decreases disruption of sleep from REM disorder
CBD can improve the quality of sleep, and the overall amount of sleep. It can also control REM Sleep disorder where PD sufferers react physically to their dreams, putting themselves and their sleeping partners physically at risk.
2. Anxiety alleviation
Dopamine production is reduced by the onset of Parkinson’s Disease and it is a compound normally produced by the brain to control voluntary muscle movements. Researchers have discovered that CBD stimulates the production of dopamine by being an “inverse agonist” when encountering a protein receptor called GPR6 in the body. The production of dopamine not only significantly reduces involuntary muscle movement but it also reduces depression and anxiety.
It was noted, as far back as 1888 by neurologist Dr. Gower, that oral ingestion of hemp for reduced tremors in Parkinson’s disease is successful. Dr. Gower observed that after one year, one of his patients was almost completely cured of the tremors.
3. Delay progression of the disease
In pre-clinical trials, CBD has been proven to delay progression of PD and reducing the inflammation caused by this disease. This is partly attributed to CBD’s antioxidant and neuro-protective properties
Consumer studies recommend an effective dosage of 300ml a day (www.parkinsonsrecovery.com/CBD) which can be taken in different forms.
According to recent trials, even those taking a low dosage CBD extract will experience positive effects after two weeks, and more immediate results on pain and sleep disturbance. CBD has no known side effects and is a legal extract of the hemp plant available for medical and dietary uses – it can be obtained online.
