Study Results: There is evidence for therapeutic effects of cannabidiol on multiple neurological disorders including:

  • Alzheimer’s
  • Parkinson disease
  • Huntington disease
  • multiple sclerosis
  • stroke
  • epilepsy
  • amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
  • traumatic brain injury
  • glioblastoma (1)

Our summary:

  • This research is a review of the literature and a discussion of reasons for cannabinoid success and failure in treating neurological disorders.
  • This CBD research explains why cannabinoids have varying effects on neurological disorders and propose that the endocannabinoidome (the larger endocannabinoid signaling system) is the reason for the imprecise effects of treating patients with cannabinoids. (3)
