Any disease that affects the body’s neurons. Some common examples include multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s, epilepsy and Parkinson’s. Even migraines are thought to have a neurological etiology. The symptoms of neurological disorders vary vastly but often involve loss of sensory and motor control as well as cognitive or memory problems.
Due to its ability to bind to receptors in the body and its ability to mimic endocannabinoids, medical cannabis is considered effective in relieving symptoms of neurological disorders. Many medical marijuana patients opt for strains with high CBD and low THC content to help them relieve pain without impairing their function. A doctor who follows medical marijuana research can recommend a strain to best suit patient symptoms.
