Medical Marijuana and Parkinson's Part 1 of 3



This clip is from the feature documentary “Ride with Larry.” With his Parkinson’s symptoms worsening and options for new medications unavailable, retired police …

  1. At 2:09 The scientist's name is cut off. I went looking for him because it's important where you get your information from;
    Daniele Piomelli is an Italian-born American scientist. He studied neuroscience in New York City, with James H. Schwartz and Eric R. Kandel at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons (PhD, 1983-1988) and later with Paul Greengard at the Rockefeller University (Post-doc, 1988-1990). Two of his mentors (Kandel and Greengard) received in 2000 the Nobel Prize for their contributions to medicine.

  2. Know what? I'm no regular dummy, and I get the medical marijuana thing, but late in this vid it's obvious that mama likes a touch of hubbies goods.

    Thanks mama, ya fuk-nut.

    My bad – go to the third part of this series to better understand my ed.

  3. Its sad that a inexpensive drug, that is practically benign in negative side effects, that can be grown in your own home, is the one people try last because of a huge negative stigma.

  4. Bio-active phytocannabinoids derived from the cannabis plant species are formed from glandular resin that gets secreted into the trichomes. Thrichomes are not created in the plant but rather outside of the plant. They serve to refract light and keep insects and predators away from the plant, also as anti oxidant agents to protect the plant from UV environment ETC….
    All of those evolutionary derived biological protecting molecules, (Phytocannabinoids and Terpenes) created from Mica , metallic oxides, sterols, phenols, and esters, ETC get transferred to Man when he/she ingests The Cannabis.
    Man contains an endocannabinoid system to metabolize via catabolism all of the phytocannabinoids, hence the bi0logical activity that leads to stabilized intracellular metabolism or homeostasis of the Organism… Identification or Bio-mimicry of Terpenophilic molecular structures is the bio-activity . Cannabinoids whether endogenously structured from arachidonic acid pre cursors substrate or from cannabimimetic activity of phytocannabinoids directly consumed in diet from cannabis plants will effect the Endocannabinoid system Cascade or metabolic chain reaction potential ..

  5. It's time the learn indigenous ways of medicine, or we may never know as euopran settlers of long ago, to now,,  wiped out the nature's way of healing, and have it and replaced with petroleum meds, synthetics.. This is part of "Manifest Destiny" as we more depend on things and big corps, uses small, intuitive in body mind connected w/ earth..

  6. Good stuff, but I got one question for Larry. As an ex-cop, how do feel now about the government you once served knowing now they are lying bullshitters! How you feel toward shithead cops busting our children over their bullshit lies and agendas? Do you now realize that most of the things you have never even questioned are just more bullshit like their stance on cannabis! Wake up earthlings. Stand up for what you believe. Question everything and believe very little.

  7. Attorney General nominee "good people don't smoke marijuana" Jefferson Beauregard Sessions should have a meet and greet with folks like Larry and get some real perspective on the issue. If you say "blue lives matter" and claim to respect and support our first responders then this alone should encourage you to support medicinal and recreational cannabis and other therapeutic herbs.

  8. What strand of marijuana are you using? I am considering getting a medical marijuana card but I don't know what strand / type to use. Indica or Sativa? High on THC or CBD? Help please

  9. I want to point out an important fact, to anyone who is not familiar with PD. Dyskinesia in NOT a symptom of PD, but a side-effect of PD drugs. So we are talking about the possibility to use cannabis to counteract a side-effect of another drug, we are not talking about dealing with the symptoms of PD directly, nor with "treating PD." Currently, there is no pharmacological treatment for PD. The best, most effective interventions are the ones that use MOVEMENT as medicine. SO MOVEMENT can be discussed as a "treatment", and it can go hand-in-hand with pharmacotherapy, so that both interventions aim toward reinforcing the possibility to move MORE and BETTER.

  10. I may be grossly wrong, but this doesn't look like Parkinson's Disease. In Parkinson's, the symptoms are mainly tremors, rigidity and bradykinesia (slowness of movements). The speech is usually soft and monotonous. 'Mask-like facies' are often seen, describing little facial expression, as if the person is wearing a mask. The tremors are usually observed in the hands, and are classically described as 'pill-rolling', and are worse when the person is at rest (not concentrating or engaging in tasks). The gait is often unsteady, and the person tends to shuffle the feet while walking, often described as the shuffling gait. Posture is stooped. They often have difficulty turning around in one smooth turn, and has to 'turn by numbers'.

    This gentleman's symptoms are hence very atypical to that of Parkinson's. He has a lot of facial expressions, often contorted, suggestive of a dyskinesia (different from bradykinesia). His hands exhibit frequent involuntary, non-purposeful movements suggestive of choreiform movements instead of the classic pill-rolling tremor. His gait appears slightly unsteady without the walking stick but it isn't shuffling in nature. In fact his strides are quite wide and smooth. Likewise, his movements, although appearing non-purposeful, are rather quick, in contrast to the slow movements observed in Parkinson's disease.

    I say this based on the patients I have seen with Parkinson's Disease. However, I do not specialise in neurology or movement disorders, so correct me if I am wrong.

  11. I'm making sure as many people I know see these three clips. It's criminal that all people around the world with Parkinsons don't have access to this remarkable plant. The feds need to stop holding it hostage. Those same feds may need to use it themselves one day.
