Scientists in the UK have announced that they will be launching the largest study to date that looks at cannabidiol (CBD) and if it can be an effective treatment for Parkinson’s disease.

Over 10 million people worldwide suffer from Parkinson’s. A number of personal patient experiences suggest that the cannabis plant can be an effective treatment for Parkinson’s, however, a lot of questions have so far gone unanswered from a research standpoint.

Hopefully the results of this study will help reduce the stigma associated with cannabis, be used as a foundation for continued research, and ultimately help patients across the globe that suffer from Parkinson’s.
