Is Anyone Using Medical Marijuana?

Is Anyone Using Medical Marijuana?

For people using medical marijuana, are you smoking it or taking it in oil or pill form?

I have given my dad a good quality CBD oil off and on for 2 years. It really helps him. You have to play around with the dosage amount. He just sometimes refuses to take it and I try to give him his dignity of still choosing as much as possible. I have noticed less shaking, better balance , and his mental stays is improved. But I think everyone is different and we live in Nevada so it is legal.

I am trying to get my medicines settled so that is not even in the scope for me right now. I also want to do more research as I am told it works differently for each person

Paz that study has to many could be's in it. Again it comes down to doctors are reaching for answers in all avenues available. I have joined the ones that will believe it when it is proven and I may never see that but I hope my children will. It what two PD patients have the desease in the same way. That is why it is so hard for those trying to find cures what works for one might not work for another
