Can CBD Oil for Parkinson’s Help?
The reducing amount of dopamine the brain produces can affect awareness, reduce limb movement, increase depression, and impact balance and coordination. Other side-effects of Parkinson’s include anxiety, sleeplessness, joint pain, and swelling.
It is in these areas where a CBD oil supplement can positively contribute towards an improved quality of life, by helping to ease symptoms of this progressive neurological disorder.
In fact, CBD oil for Parkinson’s is becoming so relevant that a nationwide UK survey is currently ongoing into the benefits of CBD oil for Parkinson’s sufferers.
Increasingly, research points to the fact that CBD oil seeks out the body’s nerve receptors, helping it reduce various symptoms associated with Parkinson’s (and other ailments) such as anxiety, pain, joint stiffness and tremors.
A survey carried out by Parkinson’s UK, delivered some interesting feedback. It found that those sufferers who have used, or are using CBD oil, say they are using it primarily to reduce anxiety. While the health professionals involved in the survey believe CBD has also helped to relieve joint stiffness, poor sleeping and poor concentration in their patients using CBD oil.
Adding to this, those who have or are using it, say they experienced no side effects, and, most importantly, the CBD had no adverse effect on their prescription medication.
