Essential Tremor (ET), also known as familial tremor and benign essential tremor, is a neurological condition that causes a rhythmic trembling of the hands, head, voice, legs or trunk. It is often confused with Parkinson’s Disease and Dystonia.
A new study published by the British Journal of Pharmacology has found that cannabinoids may protect against the behavioral disturbances caused by an essential tremor.
After conducting the experiments, researchers state that the results “provide the first evidence of effects of endocannabinoid system modulation on motor function in the harmaline model of essential tremor and suggest that CB1 receptor manipulation warrants clinical investigation as a therapeutic approach to protection against behavioural disturbances associated with essential tremor.” ”The full study can be found by clicking here.
What is Cannabidiol (CBD) ? CBD is a cannabis compound that has significant medical benefits, but is non psychoactive and can actually counteract the psycho-activity of THC.
When it comes to tremors, CBD helps because it calms the body.With the relief of the tremors, one is able to live their life better. While it seems that CBD is just relieving the tremors, it is actually doing much more. CBD is also decreasing inflammation of the nerves, while also repairing them.
