Hallucinations and delusions are common symptoms of Parkinson’s. Around 60% of people experience these distressing symptoms. Current treatments can make other Parkinson’s symptoms worse, as they block dopamine receptors in the brain. This makes this research even more exciting as the existing information we have on CBD suggests it has no side effects.

CBD is a compound found in the cannabis plant. Unlike another component, THC, CBD is non-addictive and doesn’t cause intoxication. You may have already heard of it because of its potential as a treatment for epilepsy and multiple sclerosis.

What’s CBD?

In a world first clinical trial, researchers will test whether cannabidiol (CBD) can treat Parkinson’s psychosis symptoms with the help of the Virtual Biotech.

The Parkinson’s Virtual Biotech is our best chance of turning promising discoveries into real treatments for people with Parkinson’s.

This project is the first clinical trial to go through the Virtual Biotech and the 6th project overall.

However, 87% of people who hadn’t used cannabis-derived products said they would want a doctor or pharmacist to prescribe them.

However, people who hadn’t used them said they were worried about potential side effects and interactions with Parkinson’s medication.

In fact, we’re funding a clinical trial through our Virtual Biotech right now. In a world first clinical trial, Professor Sagnik Bhattacharyya and Dr Latha Velayudhan at Kings College London (KCL) will be testing whether cannabidiol (CBD) can treat Parkinson’s psychosis symptoms.

Where do people get cannabis from?

CBD oil is available to buy legally as a food supplement. But it can’t be advertised as beneficial for medicinal purposes as there is not enough evidence currently.

Earlier this year, 1,600 people with Parkinson’s and 29 health and care professionals shared their views about and experiences of using cannabis-derived products.

Between January and March 2019, we asked people with Parkinson’s and health professionals to tell us about their experiences with and opinions on using cannabis-based products.

Cannabis is a class-B controlled drug in the UK. Possessing, producing and supplying it are all against the law. ‘Supply’ includes sharing the drug with someone or giving it (even for free) to friends or relatives.
