Although there is insufficient evidence that recommends using cannabis to treat Parkinson’s motor symptoms, a growing number of people with Parkinson’s are experimenting with it to help ease their symptoms. Others who have not experimented with cannabis products, such as medical marijuana and CBD, are expressing more interest in the subject. Yet, many people do not fully understand the chemical and biological makeup of cannabis plants, the different types of cannabis products, and what the research says about the effects on Parkinson’s symptoms. In this article, we’ll look at the differences between cannabis, marijuana, hemp, THC, and CBD, as well as what the research tells us about their impacts on Parkinson’s symptoms.
