Any Experiences Using Cannabis To Alleviate Symptoms?

Any Experiences Using Cannabis To Alleviate Symptoms?

A MyParkinsonsTeam Member said:

My husband has had various outcomes using various products.
He tried Charlottes Web CBD oil with good results, but it is expensive.
He has also tried various strains of cannabis, the weaker ones not providing any relief, and the stronger ones gave too may side effects from the cannabis itself.

The munchies, finding everything funnier than usual, loose stools, sleepiness. No unpleasant side effects. Even with the stronger cannabis he found that the benefits outweighed the side effects- no insomnia, no pain, no restless legs, no constipation. The cannabis had varying effects on his tremors, from no tremors to the usual uncontrollable shaking. Unfortunately we live in a country where cannabis is illegal, so travelled to Amsterdam to experiment.

It didn't alleviate my symptoms, but it did alleviate anxiety. Also helps with sleep.
