  • Using CBD oil to treat symptoms of Parkinson’s is becoming more and more common; however, the lack of oversight and inconsistency from batch to batch are big problems

  • There’s a trial going on at the University of Colorado right now for a CBD pill to treat Parkinson’s tremor

  • The biggest hurdle for CBD studies is that there’s no monetary support – unlike the money that big pharma companies get

  • If you want to experiment with CBD oil, make sure that you tell all of your providers about it because there can be serious drug interactions and be aware that each batch you get can be very different
