Cannabis is indeed the best natural treatment for Parkinson’s disease, new studies show

woman's hands

PD patients have a high interest in treatment with medicinal cannabis, but lack knowledge about how to take it and especially the differences between THC and CBD.

Parkinson’s disease is one of the most common neurodegenerative disorders. It was named by Jean-Martin Charcot, a French neurologist, back in 1872 after the disease was first identified by James Parkinson in 1817. Over a century later, there is still no known cure for this disease which robs people of their dignity and quality of life. However, there have been numerous modern treatments that have been developed including dopamine therapy, surgery, and even deep brain stimulation for healing the affected area in the brain.

While cannabis users produced significantly less power, they did not display as much anaerobic fatigue

Young women who are regular cannabis users, even when active and fit, do not produce as much anaerobic power as those who don’t partake, concludes a new U.S. study.

Published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research, investigators from the University of Northern Colorado sought to determine if chronic cannabis use in physically active, female athletes alters health performance.

In essence, anaerobic activity is ‚Äúa higher-intensity, higher-power version of exercise,‚Ä̬†according to¬†HealthLine. During these short bursts of intense effort, ‚Äúthe body can‚Äôt process oxygen fast enough to use it as fuel,‚ÄĚ the study explains.
