A former police captain with Parkinson’s disease received astonishing results after ingesting medical marijuana for the first time.

Larry Smith, who’s suffered from the debilitating ailment for over 20 years, was filmed ingesting CBD oil for a recently released documentary entitled “Ride with Larry.”

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a compound found in cannabis that unlike Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) does not produce intoxicating effects. The compound has been found in some studies to have the possibility of “improving quality of life measures in PD patients…”

Meeting with a fellow Parkinson’s sufferer in California, Larry, who had previously been hesitant to try CBD, saw his symptoms nearly vanish within just a few minutes.

“With a few drops of cannabis oil under his tongue, Larry’s severe dyskinesia (uncontrolled movements), loss of voice, and tremors are calmed within in minutes!” the video’s description states. “We didn’t even edit the footage because the results were so startling.”

“My voice is coming back,” Larry notes.

The documentary reveals Larry spent years and years prior to trying CBD oil looking for any treatment that would provide him with relief.

“Larry has exhausted every conventional method of treatment, every drug, and even brain surgery,” the film’s trailer states.

Following his experience with medical marijuana, the film continues by documenting Larry’s 300-mile bike ride across South Dakota aimed at giving hope to others with his disease.

“Ride with Larry” is now available to rent and own on

CBD oil has increasingly become a household name in recent years over its potential to aid several medical issues.

    There is a strong and persistent presence on the internet arguing that cannabis can treat/cure ‘x’. But despite what the supporters of these sources may claim, videos and stories are not scientific evidence for the effectiveness of any treatment. Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence – YouTube videos are emphatically not scientific evidence, and I’m not convinced by any of them. We know nothing about their medical diagnosis, stage of disease or outlook. We don’t know what other treatments they had. We don’t know about the chemical composition of the treatment they got. We only hear about the success stories. People who make these bold claims for cannabis only pick their best cases, without presenting the full picture. This highlights the importance of publishing data from scientifically rigorous lab research and clinical trials. Firstly because conducting proper clinical studies enables researchers to prove that a prospective cancer treatment is safe and effective. Then secondly because publishing this data allows doctors around the world to judge for themselves and use it for the benefit of their patients. This is the standard to which all treatments are held, and it’s one that cannabinoids should be held to too. Internet anecdotes and videos prove nothing and benefit no-one. We need reliable, scientific research.

      And if cannabis wasn’t a schedule 1 “drug”, we could finally do those scientific studies and confirm what we already know. As someone who has been suffering from severe epilepsy for many years, and has tried every conventional treatment only to have them fail completely and put my life at further risk from side effects, I can tell you CBD literally saved my life as well. And the lives of many other people I know. And not just CBD. But people I know suffering from cancer and MS have benefited greatly from good old fashioned marijuana as well.

    • William Norman

      Agree that clinical research is needed, but by classifying CBD oil as Schedule 1, the DEA is putting up roadblock for such research.

      • Sassy

        It’s the pharmaceutical companies that put up the road blocks. They were the ones behind the prohibition, lobbying congress members to ban it’s use and then continue to lobby to keep it prohibited. The DEA is just following the law.
