Hi, I'm totally new to this forum but my other half has recommended that I do a bit more research for my dad into the use of cannabis to help with his parkinson's. As I am completely clueless on most things medical, i figured, this may be the best place to ask for people's opinion.
I have just about convinced my mom that Cannabis definitely has a lot more pros than cons (if any cons at all!), and she has agreed to let me look into more ways of helping my dad as his parkinsons is starting to get a lot worse. Would anyone be able to tell me if there are any particular strains which could be best for him to take (he won't agree to smoking but I can try to make oil and cook with it), or if he should not mix cannabis with his medication at all...

As his parkinsons is getting a lot worse, his sleep is being affected because his body is getting really tense at night which is stopping him from moving round, I'm guessing having a bit of cannabis to relax him would help him, but just wanted to make sure (as I saw the quote above) that he doesn't get any reactions which could make him worse off.
would really appreciate your help and advise
