Cannabis & Parkinson's Disease
Wednesday, July 17, 2019, 2 p.m. to 3 p.m.
Age limit: 18+
People of all ages are exploring cannabis for a multitude of conditions. For thousands of years cannabis has been used medicinally around the world. Only in the last 80 years has this giving plant been demonized and criticized. We have seen a major sea-change in perception of this plant in the past two years and people are seeing cannabis for what it is: a plant with all natural benefits. In this hour, we’ll explore: History of cannabis as medicine and a short overview of its prohibition. Current legal status. Many states say yes, but local and federal governments haven’t caught up. Moving past the stigma. Talking with family, friends and physicians. Understanding how and why cannabis and CBD works in our bodies. How Cannabis and CBD can ease symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease (includes the latest body of research on the topic). Cannabis Therapies. Smoking is NOT the only option. Implementation Plan. How to go about finding and using cannabis professionally and safely. This program was presented earlier this year to the Parkinson’s Resource Group, in Medford, OR This program is offered as a Live-Webinar only
