“A Discussion on Cannabis Use”
Program: Many are asking about using some form of cannabis to help with Parkinson’s symptoms. While there are no large-scale, double-blinded clinical trial results, people in our support groups have found some relief for some of their Parkinson’s symptoms. While the focus of this webinar will be on specific ways the law works in Washington state, there will be additional information about using cannabis legally (and under your movement disorder specialist’s supervision).
