Is Cannabis safe for my 87 year old mom with Parkinsons?

My mom is 87 and suffers from Parkinson's, although she does not suffer from the typical Parkinson's shakiness. She is looking for a good night's sleep and relief from general pain. My concern is that she is fall risk, so I do not want her to get 'too high' and risk a fall with injury. Anyone have experience with helping an elderly person safely try medical cannabis for the first time?

My inquiry and concerns are: Are we treating symptoms or root causes? The majority of research repeatedly focused on treating the symptoms which no different than traditional pharma, except possible side-effect. Congress will pass the Marijuana Banking Bill turning the industry into another Cash cow for tax generation. When More Money is required for further Cures and Marijuana Research. Driving under the influence is a extreme issue today. The smell is flowing from passing vehicles everyday all day.
