(VIDEO) WATCH WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A MAN WITH PARKINSON’S TAKES MEDICAL MARIJUANA FOR THE FIRST TIME

Team - 3:02 AM

Larry Smith is a former cop who lives in South Dakota. He’s had Parkinson’s disease for 20 years, which causes severe dyskinesia (uncontrolled movements), tremors, and voice loss.

The following is a clip from the documentary Ride With Larry, which follows Larry’s efforts to raise awareness about his illness as he travels across the United States on a bicycle, despite having Parkinson’s disease. This clip has raised a lot of attention on social media and for good reason — it’s simply unbelievable.

Smith is shown in the clip taking medical marijuana for the first time. He puts a drop of cannabis oil under his tongue, after which, everything about him changes. His involuntary movements come to an end, he can speak normally, and he is very still. It’s simply incredible to see what one drop of cannabis oil can do. Unfortunately, cannabis is still not legally available in South Dakota, even for medicinal purposes.

Check it out.


What is shown in the video clip is nothing short of amazing. Many people have their doubts about medical marijuana, but the results speak for themselves. And while some people argue that this is just placebo, even if it were, which seems doubtful, does it matter? The fact remains that it works, and it can improve the lives of people like Larry tremendously.

Research Showing the Efficacy of Cannabis for Parkinson’s Symptoms

According to a study conducted in 2002 by Dr. Evzin Ruzicka, a neurologist at Charles University in Prague, Czech Republic, 50% of patients who were receiving medical marijuana for treatment said that it had helped them to alleviate some of the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.

Another noteworthy study which was conducted in March 2014 involved researchers from Tel Aviv University’s Rabin Medical Centre in Israel. It demonstrated how 22 patients with Parkinson’s disease (13 men and 9 women) had their symptoms alleviated from the use of medical marijuana, particularly tremors, rigidity, and dyskinesia. Researchers also observed that the patients were able to sleep better throughout the night and experienced less pain. No adverse effects were reported from the cannabis.


Can This Help You or Someone You Know?


It is definitely possible that cannabis could help alleviate Parkinson’s symptoms for yourself or a loved one. There are many states and countries that offer prescriptions for medical marijuana these days, and considering many of the prescription drugs available come with a wide array of negative side effects, this is certainly worth considering. As seen in the video above, this treatment works. It may not work this same way for everyone, but with so little to lose and so much to gain, it is certainly worth trying.

Please share this story. There are many places that still do not allow the sale of medical marijuana, and research and stories like this can help change this!

Much Love

  1. I have been dealing with hypothyroidism for the past 15 to 20 years. Symptoms include excessive weight gain, low energy, nonexistent libido, brittle nails, dry skin, tired all the time, anemia, insomnia, aches and pains, and depression. Instead of being cold, I am always hot. Sometimes I can't sleep because my feet are so hot so I have to go stand in a snow bank or cold water in the tub. I have tried watching what I eat and do lots of exercise, but really struggle to lose weight. In the past 4 years my TSH has been anywhere between .05 and 14.32. Ferritin runs between 46 and 86. I was desperate for help to help me feel better. i was introduced to Health herbal clinic in Johannesburg who have successful herbal treatment to hypothyroidism . I spoke to few people who used the treatment here in USA and they all gave a positive response, so i immediately purchased the hypothyroidism herbal formula and commenced usage, i used the herbal supplement for only 7 weeks, all symptoms gradually faded away, herbs are truly gift from God. contact this herbal clinic via their email healthherbalclinic @ gmail. com or visit www. healthherbalclinic. weebly. com
