Add Tourette Syndrome to the Conditions Cannabis May Treat

PsyPost has reported that preliminary evidence in a new Canadian scientific study shows cannabis' promise in reducing Tourette Syndrome symptoms.

A new study published May 3, 2017 in The Journal of Neuropsychiatry and Clinical Neurosciences has found that Tourette syndrome patients find cannabis to be both effective and well tolerated.

This early evidence in a 19-patient study, while not conclusive, suggests that the drug could help those with the neuropsychiatric disorder by reducing involuntary tics by as much as 60%.
