Hemp Oil Parkinson’s Disease Treatment, Around for Decades

hemp-oil-parkinson's

Hemp oil Parkinson’s treatment is not new. In fact, as far back as the 19th century doctors were prescribing marijuana to those suffering from this condition in order to slow its progress and to control and manage its symptoms.Even though no one knew how exactly how the medicine worked at the time, its effectiveness was evident enough to warrant doctor recommendations. Its use, however, started to decline when new laws banning the handling and use of marijuana came into force in the 1940s.

In recent years, a new awakening has occurred among neurologists and Parkinson’s patients regarding the potential that is there in hemp oil. This movement is driven by a gradual change of laws affecting the use of marijuana, especially for medicinal purposes.

Furthermore, information now available explains how marijuana works to minimize and control the symptoms of this condition. For instance, it is now known that the disease has everything to do with the levels of certain chemicals that exist in the brain and nervous system.

Research has recognized low levels of the naturally occurring chemical in the brain called dopamine as the reason for the neurological degeneration and later dementia. This compound is produced by the brain’s nerve cells also known as neurons.

For reasons that are yet to be discovered, these neurons gradually die and are not replaced, especially in people exposed to certain toxins or after brain injury. This leads to less injection of dopamine into the brain to aid in nervous system control.

The condition is more prevalent in people older than 50. Nevertheless, 10% of its victims are under this age. In fact, Muhammad Ali, one of its most famous victims, was diagnosed when he was just 38.

Huge investments have been put into efforts to find a cure for this condition, but still there is no permanent cure. However, there are several conventional treatments that are used to manage its symptoms.

One of the most common methods of treatment is the artificial injection of the dopamine chemical compound into the brain. Carbidopa-levodopa combination is the most used for this purpose. This treatment, however, comes with side effects like nausea and lightheadedness. Moreover, the levodopa may turn into dopamine, especially if it is not properly combine with Carbidopa before it gets into the brain.

Other forms of treatment like stem cells and surgery procedures are either too expensive or still in their infancy.

For its part, hemp oil has shown success in bringing about a more natural form of neurological recovery with no side effects. The cannabinoid receptors in the human brain react with the CBD and THC compounds in the marijuana to trigger the production of dopamine, which reduce the effects of Parkinson’s disease.

Even more encouraging is the fact that hemp oil Parkinson’s disease treatment is now easily available across the country. In fact, there are now fewer legal and logistical obstacles than ever before. Patients with this condition now have no significant reason not to try this exciting treatment.

    Too often I read articles interchanging the terms hemp and marijuana. These are two different plants and the oil from these plants are two different oils. Isn’t what they are referring to here cannabis oil, not hemp oil?

      That’s how new all of this info is for everyone. Two different strains of the “cannabis” plant, one(hemp) high in CBD, the other(marijuana) high in THC. Let’s be sure to educate everyone on the facts, because our Western medical industry, government, big pharma, etc., are not anxious to do so!

    Cannot wait to pass this on! We all need to share, reshare, even if we don’t directly suffer from this specific condition. Someone will know someone who is suffering and would benefit immensely from CBD hemp oil!

  • Hello Al,

    Doses tend to be tricky since CBD works differently for each person, however the average dose recommended is of 2-3mg of CBD daily. to consume 300mg would be very excesive and would require to consume a whole bottle of oil to get. What the person that recomended you that probably meant to use one of the products that have 300mg-600mg of CBD in total. With the recommended dose a 2oz bottle with 500mg of CBD should last around 160 doses.

    I hope this answered your question, if not please let me know.

    Best wishes

  • No, Hemp seed oil contains very little CBD and is used mainly as a sorce of protein while Hemp oil is extracted from the buds, stalks and leaves of Hemp and contains a lot of CBD.
