Reasearch medical marihuana for ataxia


These times of news sharing it is hard to not notice all the videos and reports on what tremendous effects CBD oil and cannabis has on different neurological diseases.

Numerous report it has stopped life threatening seizures, some reports claims very positve effect on parkinson's and i have even read some places people with MS benefit from it.

I´m very curious if there is some trials or reports with cannabis in treating ataxia as I have seen none. Maybe some members here even tried it or have some hand on experience.

Thank you very much

  • Hi there, I have SCA 1 and use CBD oil which I have researched and certainly have noticed a difference. Sadly it has been taken off sale as one of the greedy drugs companies has taken it on licence, but I have still found some on Amazon. Be careful of the type if buying. I use Charlottes Web.

    Good luck,


  • Thank you for your information, is the THC removed from the oil you are using? and how frequent do you take it?


  • I take 3 drops 3 times per day and THC is removed. See previous post.


  • Can you get it in the UK? If so where please?

  • I suffer from late onset ataxia due to head trauma. It has been my experience that cannibis has helped with muscle spasms, depression, insomnia and digestive ailments. I am fortunate to live in a place that it is legal and openly discussed. Doctors of all types need to be made more aware of the benefits of this medicinal treatment.
