CBD oil and Parkinson’s – You or a loved one may have a lot to gain?

Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a long-term degenerative disorder of the central nervous system that mainly affects the motor system. The symptoms generally come on slowly over time. Early in the disease, the most obvious are shaking, rigidity, slowness of movement, and difficulty with walking. Thinking and behavioral problems may also occur. Dementia becomes common in the advanced stages of the disease. Depression and anxiety are also common occurring in more than a third of people with PD.  Other symptoms include sensory, sleep, and emotional problems.

The number of people diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2018 in the UK is around 145,000. That’s around 1 adult (i.e people aged 18 or over) in every 350. Most people who get Parkinson’s are aged 50 or over but younger people can get it too.

Parkinson’s disease is primarily caused by low and falling dopamine levels. A person with Parkinson’s has abnormally low dopamine levels. Dopamine-generating cells, known as dopaminergic neurons (types of nerve cells) in the substantia nigra part of the brain have died. Experts do not know why these cells die.

CBD oil 

Evidence recently indicates that CBD provides significant, though temporary relief from the symptoms associated with a diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease.

CBD is an abbreviation for cannabidiol oil. It is derived from an extraction process using either the hemp or the marijuana plant. Extracting CBD allows a consumer the medical benefits of medical marijuana without the high that is associated with THC. CBD in itself has no psychedelic properties and is considered safe for consumption.

CBD and Parkinson’s

In late 1980s, a system was discovered to be present in human body. This system is called the “Endocannabinoid system.” The endocannabinoid system fights against the outer bodily states by maintaining an inner balance by regulating our temperature, mood, appetite etc. Such a process is also termed as ‘homeostasis.’ The main cannabinoid receptors that are located almost throughout the body are CB1 and CB2.

The favorable effect of CBD is that it tends to link itself with the above-mentioned receptors and help our endocannabinoid system to carry out homeostasis. The binding of the cannabidiol to these receptors help the brain to produce more dopamine. Dopamine inhibits the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.

You may have seen YouTube or news testimonial to the benefit of CBD use with Parkinson’s? How tremors are reduced almost instantly or instantly in some cases.

Cannabinoids are natures way and speak the same language as our body. Our bodies have been designed or have evolved with already present Cannabinoid receptors.

As always consult a medical professional before using CBD oil. As a natural product, it should pose no danger. Side effects are rare and often mild if any. But make sure you purchase good quality CBD oil as some are sold with low quantities of Cannabinoid and may not have the desired effect.

Please contact me with any information regarding the use of CBD with Parkinson’s on a personal level as I am always appreciative of new information and am willing to learn.

You or a loved one may have a lot to gain from the use of CBD oil.

Thanks for reading

  1. My neurologist prescribed entacapone with levodopa, carbidopa, and pramipexole. I opted not to go on prescription medicines but decided on using herbs instead, October 18, 2017 after being on the herbs you recommended, i had a total recovery from Parkinson’s disease with this natural herbal formula treatment. The tremors, Shaking, Joint Stiffness has subsided. When I stumbled upon you guys, it was just pure instinct. And from that day on it has been one of the best decisions I’ve made in my life. The caring that goes into explaining what herbs work for whatever ails me is astounding. In today’s world where so many are after a quick buck, selling without care, The Herbal Garden’s staffs amplifies the difference. I’m a believer in karma, and for generations to come, this is a herbal store that will be leaving it’s footprint in this world.
