Symptoms of Tourette Syndrome
Tourette's is a problem with the nervous system that causes people to make sudden movements or sounds, called tics, that they can't control. Someone with Tourette's might blink or clear their throat over and over again. Some people may blurt out words they don't intend to say.


  • compulsive behaviour, impulsivity, hyperactivity, meaningless repetition of own words, nonsense word repetition, repetitive movements, swearing uncontrollably, or lack of restraint


  • tic, difficulty with bodily movements, increased muscle activity, involuntary movements, involuntary muscle contraction, or jerking muscle spasms


  • anxiety or apprehension

Also common:

  • coughing, eyelid twitching, frequent throat clearing, learning disability, repetitive blinking of eyes, or stuttering

Research on the affects of Cannabis oil on Tourette Syndrome patients

Research has shown that cannabis can be effective in suppressing tics and also in the treatment of the syndrome’s associated behavioral problems.

One study measuring the effects of a single cannabis treatment on adult Tourette’s syndrome patients found a significant improvement of tics and obsessive-compulsive behavior compared to placebo (Muller-Vahl, et al., 2002).

Demonstrating cannabis potential longer-term benefits, another study discovered a significant difference in the reduction of tics compared to placebo in Tourette’s patients after six weeks of cannabis administration (Muller-Vahl, et al., 2003).
