Scientific evidence: Cannabis and Cerebral Palsy

All types of cerebral palsy can be characterzied best by abnormal muscle tone, reflexes, motor development and coordination. In certain cases, there can be joint and bone deformities and contractures. The classical symptoms associated with cerebral palsy are spasticities, spasms, other involuntary movements, unsteady gait, problems with balance and soft tissue finding consisting largely of decreased muscle mass. Medical marijuana is a great treatment option for those who suffer from cerebral palsy, mainly because of it's direct ability to alleviate any symptoms of spasticity that one may experience. Medical marijauna serves as a muscle relaxer and can also provide exceptional anti-inflammatory properties that you cannot find anywhere else. This type of alternative treatment option also alleviates chronic pain associated with this condition and any form of stiffness.
