CBD is being shown to help relieve the symptom’s associated with Parkinson’s
Parkinson’s disease is one of the most debilitating diseases identified. It is a degenerative disease that destroys complete cell structures in the brain, dissolving neurons one by one until patients suffer from uncontrollable spasms and tremors and, ultimately, a complete breakdown of motor functions. There is no cure for the disease; however, recent studies are showing that cannabidiol (CBD) can go a long way toward providing much-needed relief and improve a patient’s well-being.
Science is helping reveal that Parkinson’s directly attacks motor functions by interfering with the brain’s creation of dopamine. Dopamine is at the center of all basic thinking skills and is one of the most crucial neurotransmitters the brain has at its disposal.
There is also evidence to show that a diet can determine whether or not someone will suffer from Parkinson’s. Toxic agents in some foods can harm the mitochondrial ecology in the body’s digestive system and can completely destroy metabolism.
CBD is capable of countering both of these issues. It has been shown to help increase the production of dopamine in the brain, leading to improved cognizant performance. Additionally, it is a natural producer of antioxidants and vitamins, meaning that it can help to counter the toxins found in certain foods.
Evidence existed over 100 years ago that CBD could help Parkinson’s patients. Sir William Gowers, a well-known neurologist, used it in treating Parkinson’s sufferers, but this was before governments stepped in and decided that they needed to control cannabis. Fortunately, the truth is finally resurfacing and millions of individuals suffering from a range of maladies can finally receive the help they need.
