Abstract Consumer demand for cannabidiol (CBD) oil has increased, with growing sales from dispensaries because of the alleged medicinal benefits. Although studies examining the specific therapeutic effects of CBD are increasing, clinical data do not support the popular uses of CBD for Parkinson disease, schizophrenia, cancer palliation and treatment, chronic pain and spasticity, depression, anxiety disorder, insomnia, and inflammation.

Beyond its disabling motor symptoms, Parkinson's disease (PD) is a common and chronic neurodegenerative disease that affects nearly every organ system and produces significant daily dysfunction. However, the impact on mental health may be the most profound of effect of the disease.1 Anxiety, apathy, depression, psychosis, impulse control disorders, sleep disturbances, cognitive impairment and dementia are highly prevalent, resulting in lower quality of life, greater caregiver burden, increased risk of institutionalization, and greater physical morbidity and mortality.

In this study, zebrafish was used to assess the aquatic toxicity of OxCu. To detect the effects on development, embryos of 6 hour post-fertilization (hpf) were exposed to 10 μg/L, 20 μg/L, 40 μg/L OxCu for 18 h; meanwhile, to evaluate the effects on the behavior, larval fish at 6 days post-fertilization (dpf) were exposed to the same concentrations for 24 hours. Here, we show that there are embryonic developmental defects, including abnormalities of head and trunk, brain ventricle atrophy, reduced newborn neurons, disordered neurons, increased intercellular space, concentr...

This study aimed to assess the prevalence, characteristics, therapy (especially the effect of dopaminergic therapy), and associated symptoms of pain in Parkinson's disease and multiple system atrophy (MSA) patients. Methods: Seventy-one PD patients, sixty-five MSA patients, and forty age-matched healthy controls were enrolled and evaluated by using the German pain questionnaire and visual analogue scale (VAS). In addition, the influence of pain in PD patients on anxiety, depression, and the quality of life was assessed with the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS) and Parkinson's Disease Questionnaire (PDQ-39)...

AbstractObjectivesto explore the association between cerebral small ‐vessel diseases (CSVDs) and motor symptoms in Parkinson's disease (PD).Methods137 PD patients were recruited into the study. Detailed motor symptoms, including tremor, rigidity, bradykinesia, and axial impairment, were evaluated using Unified Parkinson's disease Rating Scale (UPDRS). Non ‐motor symptoms, including cognition, anxiety, and depression, were evaluated using Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA), Hamilton anxiety scale (HAMA), and Hamilton depression scale (HAMD). Brain MRI was used to assess the subtypes of CSVDs, including lacunes, enlarg...
