VIDEO: See how vaping marijuana helps Parkinson’s patient within minutes

A 55-year old man by the name of Ian Frizell who suffers from Parkinson’s Disease has taken to the Internet to demonstrate how vaping marijuana has changed his life.  One of the symptoms of this devastating disease of the nervous system is a general, progressive loss of control to perform the most basic functions, such as blinking, swinging the arms when walking, or even smiling.  But one of the more noticeable and perhaps even a bit embarrassing side effects are the uncontrollable tremors that can suddenly appear without warning in the arms, legs, and fingers.   

In his video, Frizell explains how he had previously undergone “deep brain stimulation surgery” where an implant was placed into his body which helps control the tremors and other related symptoms.   The device can be turned off and on by way of a DBS switch, based on the severity of the tremors. 


For some Parkinson’s patients, this medical implant has proven to be somewhat of a Godsend.  Others like Frizell want alternative treatment options, such as vaping marijuana.  However, many federal governments around the world – including that of the United States – are slow to support its official legalization.    Ian’s video demonstrates just how effective this wonder drug can be.

Video proof of just how effective vaping marijuana can be for Parkinson’s patients

The video begins with Frizell discussing his relationship with Parkinson’s Disease, the brain stimulation device, and just how disorienting the tremors can be to his everyday existence.  He then switches off the implant by way of the DBS and records the resulting tremors for the world to see. 


 “What you are seeing here is my Parkinson’s tremor with absolutely no medication whatsoever.  I cannot tolerate the prescription medication for Parkinson’s disease. They make me feel extremely unwell.”

Along with the medical implant, Frizell is also forced to take medications which can come with their own uncomfortable side effects, including dizziness, nausea, tingling in the limbs, blurred vision, sleeplessness and bad dreams, among several others.  After he turns off the implant, Ian then says that he will return to the camera after self-medicating by vaping marijuana.  When he returns after about 20 minutes, the tremors are almost completely nondetectable. 

‘It’s now 20 minutes since I self-medicated with approximately 30mg of marijuana, which is just a small pinch, taken using a vaporizer.”

‘And you can see that my tremor has calmed down significantly. In fact, it’s almost completely under control.’
“The sense of relief is overwhelming.”

Now, many in the vaping community often ask, “Why are vaping advocates constantly talking about marijuana?”  Well, this short video is just one example of why the vaping industry is so supportive of our weed-smoking counterparts.   Much like the general, non-smoking, non-vaping public who tends to look down their noses at people who vape, people who don’t use marijuana tend to think everyone who does is some sort of deviant.  As you can see from the video, Ian Frizell is nothing of the sort. 

Just like vaping advocates, medical marijuana activists are also often misunderstood.   And these sorts of “bad reputations” thrust upon both industries by public health organizations peddling Puritanical ideologies is a major contributing factor to the unending political gridlock which fails to acknowledge the many health benefits that both vaping and medical marijuana provide.     



  • Does it have to be medical marijuana

  • It’s also great for Multiple Sclerosis I’ve seen the benefits and I was actually instructed by a doctor to smoke pot and it was then that I learned that I am allergic :(
    I am pro pot personally. ……..I think it would cut out war if the parties got. Together and “hashed” it out over a doobie.
    Be well

  • How do you get medical marijuana if not legal in Ohio? Or can you.

  • I think this article is beautiful. My father has been disabled and extremely depressed for about ten years. He has arthritis and a bone disease but with his depression, hes become practically immobile over the years. He never comes out of his room and is always in bed. His lack of movement was so bad that he experienced a pulmonary embolism and a brain anorism. Nothing helped but hes survived with pain medication that rendered him a complete addict. Stealing extra pills then withdrawling when he ran out early.
    His doctor just approved him for medical marijuana and his (and our) life changed immediately! Within the first day of smoking, he went outside twice for a total of one hour to play with my twoyyearold son. He comes out of his room many times a day and seems excited for the future. It’s a miracle!
