Marijuana for Parkinson's

Parkinson's disease is a serious problem when it comes to Canadian lives. One in every 500 Canadians has this degenerative disease while the cause is still unknown. Many painful and uncomfortable symptoms are a direct result of Parkinson's disease, such as hand tremors, muscle spasms, sleep deprivation, uncontrollable limb agitation and more. Fortunately, many studies show that the use of cannabis to treat Parkinson's disease has positive effects by increasing the levels of dopamine in the body that have been lost due to Parkinson's disease. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that transmits signals between neurons and the brain, it is one of the main players in smooth muscle movements. Once affected by the disease, the brain cells that are responsible for creating dopamine begin to deteriorate. THC helps by replacing this lost dopamine.
