Hi Jeryl, i use cannibus, i smoke at night, it definitely helps me sleep and relaxes me. After working a full time job then caregiving for my parents, i need
something to unwind me.
Cannabis can help a variety of pd symptoms but stick to normal strength and no more than 2 joints perday.
I’m using CBD oil without any thc. It’s from Colorado and the name is NuLeaf. I don’t have the tremors only due to DBS surgery. BUT, I’ve been talking Prednisone for 11-12 years, and I want to stop this use. Only 10 mg. But now I’m down to 2 mg. 😃
I am trying small amount of CBD oil in gummy form when my dyskinesia is bad with some success
@A MyParkinsonsTeam Member I use it for neuropathic pain, restless leg and insomnia. The pain cannabis is topical and contains thc but there is no high etc and cannot be detected in blood tests. The cannabis used for sleep also contains thc but over time it has lost effectiveness for me and there is a risk for nightmares depending on strength and dosage. Other side effect, after long term use, is severe dry mouth in my experience. i smoke it on special occasions and it can be very relaxing but other than that it doesn't have much affect on tremors.
