Can cannabis stop Parkinson’s hallucinations?
A pioneering clinical trial will investigate if cannabidiol (CBD) – a compound found in the cannabis plant – can treat hallucinations and delusions in people living with Parkinson’s.
Parkinson’s UK is backing a world first clinical trial at King’s College London (KCL), which will test whether CBD is safe and effective for treating Parkinson’s psychosis symptoms.
We’re funding the first large-scale trial which aims to provide preliminary evidence that CBD can stop hallucinations and delusions for people with Parkinson’s. The research is led by Professor Sagnik Bhattacharyya and Dr Latha Velayudhan at KCL.
