PARKINSON'S DISEASE





As of October 2015 - States That Have Approved Medical Marijuana for Parkinson’s Disease

Currently, 10 states have approved medical marijuana for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease. These states include Connecticut, Georgia, Illinois, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Mexico, New York, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
A number of other states will consider allowing medical marijuana to be used for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease with the recommendation from a physician. These states include: California (any debilitating illness where the medical use of marijuana has been recommended by a physician), Nevada (other conditions subject to approval), Oregon (other conditions subject to approval), Rhode Island (other conditions subject to approval), and Washington (any “terminal or debilitating condition”).
In Washington D.C., any condition can be approved for medical marijuana as long as a DC-licensed physician recommends the treatment.
In addition, several states have approved medical marijuana specifically to treat “chronic pain,” a symptom that can arise in people with Parkinson’s. These states include: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Delaware, Hawaii, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Montana, New Mexico, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Vermont. The states of Nevada, New Hampshire, Ohio and Vermont allow medical marijuana to treat “severe pain.” The states of Minnesota, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Washington have approved cannabis for the treatment of “intractable pain.”
Also, 17 states have approved medical marijuana specifically for the treatment of nausea, which can develop from medications used to treat Parkinson’s. These states include: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Delaware, Hawaii, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington.

  1. This is because the essential oils of non-bitter qualities which are also responsible for the aroma and flavor of the hops evaporate off during the boil.
    Not a compulsory ingredient with the brewing of beer, but certainly a favored one because of the hops unique properties, as beer sales worldwide can certainly display proof to that factor.

  2. The standards, though, are already set for tracking the plants, certifying physicians, and licensing growers, dispensaries, and physicians.
    In time, restrictions may very well ease, however.
