Parkinson’s disease, which affects movement, causes tremors, stiffness, and difficulties with coordination and balance, is a neurological disorder. Parkinson’s disease is a chronic condition that gets worse over time. There is no cure but there are ways to manage the symptoms. Certain strains of cannabis can be used to treat Parkinson’s disease symptoms like anxiety, tremors, and pain.
These are the best strains to improve symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.
Harlequin: This variety is high in CBD. It has been proven to have neuroprotective and anti-inflammatory properties. It is known to reduce tremors, improve mobility, and have a calming effect on the mind.
Cannatonic, another high-CBD strain. Cannatonic’s ability to relax muscles and reduce spasms is well-known. It is a great choice for people with Parkinson’s because it can help reduce pain and inflammation.
ACDC: This hybrid is Cannatonic and Ruderalis. It has high CBD and low THC. It is capable of relieving anxiety, muscle spasms, and pain without the psychoactive effects associated with THC.
Blue Dream: Blue Dream, while not high in CBD is well-known for its ability to boost mood and energy. Blue Dream can be used to relieve pain and discomfort in Parkinson’s patients.
Granddaddy Purple is high in THC and can be used to treat anxiety, pain, and insomnia. This strain can have a relaxing effect, which is why it’s a great choice for Parkinson’s patients who feel stiffness or tremors.
It is important to evaluate the CBD/THC ratio and the overall effects of a cannabis strain when looking for a strain that can help with Parkinson’s symptoms. You should consult a doctor before you use cannabis to treat Parkinson’s disease. It can interact with other medications and may not suit everyone.
While there is no cure, some cannabis strains may be able to help ease the symptoms and improve the quality of life for people with Parkinson’s. Individuals with Parkinson’s disease can choose the right strain for them by evaluating the effects of the cannabis strain and the ratio of CBD and THC.
