Cannabis May Treat Primary Symptom of Parkinson’s Disease, According to New Study

A new study being published in the October issue of the journal Progress in Neuro-Psychopharmacology and Biological Psychiatry has found that cannabinoids – compounds found in cannabis – can help to improve muscle rigidity (a “freezing” of the muscles), one of the primary symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, and may slow the progression of the disease.
