Medical marijuana - ADPA statement
Guidance for the Parkinson’s community on medical marijuana treatments.
Parkinson’s disease (PD) can be very challenging to cope with, causing a mixture of motor and non-motor symptoms that affect nearly every aspect of daily living. Although the medications that doctors prescribe can be helpful, there remain gaps in what the medications can treat. Understandably, people with PD are eager to find alternative methods to help their symptoms, leading many of these patients to look into whether other therapies, such as medical marijuana, also known as medical cannabis, can be useful.
