Medical marijuana has become of increasing interest over the past few decades but in many cases there’s limited research on its effects, especially for Parkinson’s disease. Co-chair of The Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF) Patient Council and retired family physician Dr. Soania Mathur, moderates a conversation with Matt Ackerman, MJFF Patient Council member; Dr. Susan Fox, of the University of Toronto; Dr. Benzi Kluger, of the University of Colorado; and Dr. Helen Lavretsky, of the University of California, Los Angeles where they discuss:
- Current studies on medical marijuana for Parkinson’s and the legal hurdles to research
- Considerations to discuss with your doctor if you’re interested in medical marijuana
- How acupuncture and vitamins and supplements may affect Parkinson’s symptoms
