Research & Scientific Evidence
A handful of studies have investigated the effects of cannabidiol (CBD) to treat Parkinson’s disease and symptom management. However, the main body of evidence showing that CBD has promise as an effective treatment for this disease lies in studies relating to adjunct actions and complications from the disease including oxidative stress, neural inflammation and neurodegeneration.
Walking or gait difficulties that may begin as a small change in the way the arm swings while walking and evolving into a slow, small, shuffling gait, rapid small steps, or freezing episodes in which the feet appear to be glued to the floor
People with Parkinson’s typically start experiencing symptoms in the later stages of the disease, after a significant number of neurons have been damaged or lost. Symptoms develop slowly over multiple years, and they differ from person to person. Because symptoms often differ from one person to the next, not all symptoms listed below are necessary for a Parkinson’s diagnosis. Younger people in particular may only exhibit one or two of these symptoms, especially in the earlier stages of the disease.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is among the major secondary metabolites of cannabis that lacks the characteristic psychoactive effects of delta-9-tetra-hydrocannabinol (THC). It is a resorcinol-based compound with a broad spectrum of potential therapeutic properties, including neuroprotective effects in numerous pathological conditions. CBD’s neuroprotection is due to its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities and the modulation of a large number of brain biological targets (receptors, channels) involved in the development and maintenance of neurodegenerative diseases.
Many people do not like vaping so the choice to use a sublingual oil is easy. Others may choose a vapor product over a sublingual oil because of the higher absorption rate, faster onset and convenience of carrying it on your person. Some prefer the sublingual oils because the effects last longer, it is easier to dial-in an exact dosage, and easier to take higher dosage servings. Many customers will opt to do both, using the sublingual oil for the main dose and a vape pen to supplement between doses. This is especially helpful for people tackling anxiety or chronic pain who may need to supplement throughout the day.
