An introduction to the spectrum of common movement disorders, their pathophysiologies and identified pharmacodynamics of medical cannabis towards their treatment.
Movement disorders encompass a range of indications, some of which have been closely investigated for the potential of medical cannabis treatments. Included in this scope are well known conditions like MS, Parkinson’s, Huntington’s and Tourette’s, and in this module we investigate the current study situation for these, and others, around medical cannabis.
We have a limited degree of evidence of the mechanics of medical cannabis in treating different movement disorders, and it’s important to understand which conditions there is a moderate basis for medical cannabis treatment, and which areas require more investigation.
