Scientists arenow aware that the basal ganglia brain area, which is under attack during Parkinson's, is also full of endocannabinoid receptors.

In this area, both the CB1 receptor, which is primarily part of the nervous system, and the CB2 receptors, which care for immune system functions, are found.

Cannabis against tremor during Parkinson's

Researchers have also found interesting findings during experiments on mice that have been exposed to levodopa for a long time .

Treatment with preparationsror. In the case of Parkinson's, patients with Parkinson's disease are associated with gradual development of unwanted movements and twitching of the body.

During the administration of therapeutic cannabis to sick mice, their tremors and jerk frequencies decreased markedly.

Elderly cannabis (including Parkinson's patients ) has been helping studies
