Parkinson’s sufferer Ian Frizell films effects of weed on tremors | Metro News

gettyimages-672213679A man suffering from early onset Parkinson’s has shown the ‘considerable’ effects of medical cannabis.

Ian Frizell, 55, was diagnosed with the disease in 2011, but has suffered from gradually worsening symptoms since 1995.

Now he has filmed a video to show what a huge difference a small amount of medicinal cannabis makes to his tremors.

In the clip, Ian explains that he underwent deep brain stimulation surgery earlier this year, a medical implant that helps mask the symptoms of Parkinson’s. He then switches the DBS device off to show the severity of his tremors.
