10 Best Weed Strains For Parkinson’s Disease

If you know someone living with Parkinson's disease, medical cannabis can help treat many of its symptoms. Here are the best weed strains for Parkinson's disease.

Considering what we know about the second most common neurological disorder in the United States, the best weed strains for Parkinson’s disease are those that are the most anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and stimulating to the endocannabinoid system.

The Best Weed Strains For Parkinson’s Disease

Among neurological illnesses, Parkinson’s disease ranks as the second most common in the United States. Parkinson’s disease, or PD, causes tremors, it slows down movement, makes it hard to stand and sit straight, and reduces balance and coordination.

Unfortunately, there isn’t any totally conclusive evidence that cannabis use improves the symptoms of PD. However, last year, one of the most comprehensive reviews of the subject suggested that preventing damage to nerves could slow the disease and reduce its symptoms. In other words, cannabis’s known neuroprotectant properties mean patients could use it to treat PD. With that in mind, here are the best weed strains for Parkinson’s disease.

10. Dutch Dragon (Sativa)

Sativa varietals make for some of the best weed strains for Parkinson’s disease, thanks to their lower sense of intoxication and their energetic, functional high.

When using cannabis medically, most patients wish to avoid strong psychoactive effects. Dutch Dragon is a THC-driven strain that may come on strong. But it quickly smoothes out to a calming therapeutic level that lasts throughout the day.
