Parkinson's Disease tremor control with medicinal cannabis



hi following the news that MPs are backing a call to legalize the use of marijuana of medical use I wanted to film this video to show the effect of taking marijuana on my tremor I have early onset Parkinson's disease for which I've had deep brain stimulation surgery which does a fair job masking my symptoms but for the purpose of this video I've switched my DBS off so what you're saying here is my Parkinson's tremor with absolutely no medication whatsoever I cannot tolerate the prescription medication from Parkinson's disease they make me feel extremely unwell what I'm going to do now is to self medicate with some marijuana and then come back up to 20 to 30 minutes to show you the difference okay it's now 20 minutes since I self medicated with approximately 30 milligrams of marijuana which is just a small pinch taken using a vaporizer you can see that my tremor has calmed down significantly in fact it's almost completely under control sense of relief is overwhelming apart from calming my tremor there are one or two other symptoms of the marijuana has affected positively dystonia which causes my right foot to curl over and is most uncomfortable is lessened considerably my voice feels stronger and it's easier for me to get words out thanks for watching my video I very much appreciate it if you click on the like button underneath the video window and click here to subscribe to my youtube channel for more videos like this you

  2. I've searched for an answer but haven't found it yet – How long is a "treatment" with Cannabis good for? 1 hr? 2Hr? 15 min?

  3. Hi Ian, what did you mean by "DBS just masks the symptoms"? I think that's what you said once, but I could be wrong. Thanks

  4. Wow, that is such an amazing difference after taking medical cannabis. I’ve heard of it being used with other neurological conditions like Tourette’s. Thanks again Ian for demonstrating this effect x

  5. My dad has Parkinson's and he's basically falling apart from the disease. He won't vape because he thinks its smoking and it's close to impossible to find edibles. My mother suffers from traumatic brain injury and she refuses to smoke/vape as well. I wish there was an economical way to deliver cannabis to those that deserve and need it.

  6. Absolutely AMAZING!!! I just got approved for my medical marijuana card. Can't wait to start using! I have epilepsy.

  7. How can anybody not like the video the man is simply showing how medical marijuana works well for his Parkinson's and the perscription meds don't work and make him feel worse. What because he don't show himself medicating you don't like the video. I applaud this man for him standing up and showing the difference. SMH the hate is real and I guess more ppl need to use medical marijuana maybe they can cure the hate and dickheadism(not a real word) but even that's a long shot for u hating ass helpless souls😉

  8. I love the way you articulated your symptoms and lack thereof.
    It's people like you, and videos like this that, are beginning the movement towards medical marijuana.

  9. I am so glad that marijuana is finally legalized and people can enjoy the great benefits from this wonderful plant….👌❤

  10. God bless you. Thank you for spreading the message that marijuana isnt just a recreational drug. Id love to have a politician say to your face that he doesnt support medical after seeing this video. I hope you live a comfortable life with your treatment

  11. The more important question is this. How long you have been on cannabis ? and will you have to increase the dosage over time to get same results?
    I don't deny the effect of cannabis, but am not sure how it will react in longer periods. PS I had dystonia and had a DBS in 2014. now I am suffering from dizziness, imbalance and occasionally muscular tension. What do you recommend? shall I start using it?

  12. Cannabis was made illegal based on zero medical or scientific studies, that same methodology would get laughed out of any modern courtroom

  13. The reason that marijuana is illegal is because big pharma would lose billions of dollars if it was made legal. Because people could grow it in their home

  14. God bless you… I'm glad you found that herb helps your condition. I hope people can get marijuana legalized in all 50 states as a medical necessity. It has very few side effects compared to what's available from big pharma. Also, it continues to work. You won't get flying high like the first time you use it. But, it will continue to have its medical benefits for a lifetime. If it works for you to start with, it will continue to be beneficial.

  15. God Bless you Sir. My Dad had Alzheimer's and Dementia. CBD tincture really helped him. Unfortunately, today marks his 1 year of leaving us. I believe his life improved much after the CBD but it was already too late 😢

  16. bless you Ian..any idiot that gives thumbs down is a cruel fallen human being; pitiful and sadistic! keep yo the good fight brother

  17. Hi Ian, I've noticed you experience some dysarthria (trouble speaking), may I ask whether this developed as a side effect of DBS?

  18. I'm so glad you can get real respite from your debilitating condition. The time has come for a real discussion about the removal of some criminal laws off the statute books. Especially in my country (Scotland)

  19. may i ask what kind of CBD oil you used and where did you get it from . i tried boost from white palm (calyx) . and it did nothing for my dogs seizures. looking for something that works

  20. When people like Jeff Sessions goes to be Judged by Christ who is the only Righteous Judge. Jesus may say. You know all t hise years you put my children in prison for my creation I put on Earth to relieve My children's pain and suffering. Also Jeff I had other plans for those people and your ignorance stopped my plans and it ruined their life and family. Do you remember that Jeff? You said you believed in Liberty and Freedom Jeff but that was your definition of Liberty and Freedom but not my definition of freedom and liberty. So you ruined millions of lives caused the Police to wage war on the poor and suffering bleeding them of money they could have gave to charity and pay their tithes so My Gospel could reach those who I plan to save and spend eternity with Me. It was money they needed for their children and families but you used it to support man's corrupt Justice System, Probation Officers and other jobs created to drain their pockets. It caused millions to lose jobs they needed. You labeled them felons and my children couldn't get jobs that paid them well or caused them to be homeless because they couldn't get a job. Jeff I hope this makes sense to you doesn't it? Now let me ask you do you think you we're a good and righteous man and should spend eternity in my Kingdom? The rest is in Jesus's hands. Legalize it now!

  21. Cannabis aids neuroplasticity in the endocannabinoid system… phytocannabinids from cannabis are secondary metabolites that metabolize through cellular membranes into the intracellular space… not many molecules are able to make it through that far into our anatomy… 314 mol is the size of decarboxylated ( carbon neutral ) THC and CBD… carbon active THC/CBD is to big to go through the blood brain barrier and does not metabolize in the same way as carbon neutral cannabinoids… Omega fatty acids make up the endocannabinoid system via bio-active lipids https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5797284/ and phytocannabinoids from cannabis are already formed on the pant while this allows them to signal though the cannabinoid receptors… to make endogenous cannabinoids we need proficient amounts of those long chain fatty acids to form anandamide and 2-AG http://themodern.farm/studies/Omega-3%20Deficiancy%20Abolish%20Endocannabinoid%20Function.pdf and cannabimimetics ( phyto-chemicals ) can be added to cannabis dosing because of their volatility to activate receptor capacity for better metabolism of cannabinoids https://www.sativaisticated.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/Cannabimimetic-phytochemicals-in-the-diet-%E2%80%93an-evolutionary-link-to-food-selection-andmetabolic-stress-adaptation-Gertsch-Medical-Cannabis-Medical-Research-for-the-Endocannabinoid-System-ECS.pdf
