    As I have just recently been given the ‘ go ahead’  to use medicinal cannabis for my PD. and as I live in Victoria Australia where it is ALL very new and secretive,  I just don’t have enough information or guts to ‘ take the plunge’ and am presently sitting on the line weighing it all up.

    I found your article on Cannabis/Parkinson’s very encouraging and informative, however I am still trying to get the courage together to stop my PD KINSON medication and trial the CBD MJ oil which I think? will benefit my strain of PD.  Thankfully I have no pain with my PD, however I have a fair amount of depression and anxiety, insomnia, my short term memory is chronic, the muscle stiffness in my legs is my worst, bowel & urinary problems and apathy – just to name some of them.

    As you so rightly said: One needs to choose one’s poison – would I prefer a treatment side effect from the Marijuana Oil  or a PD symptom from the KINSTON medication???????? Any suggestions as to what is the way to go?  Thanking You  Sharon Hockly


    • Hey Sharon,

      My Dad (diagnosed in 2013) has experimented a little bit with both medical marijuana and CBD oil. He doesn’t like to smoke, so that wasn’t an option that worked very well for him. But he thinks that CBD and Hemp oil has a positive impact on the muscular tension he sees because of his PD symptoms. I’m not sure which products he tried, but that seems to be something that has worked for him.
