Can Cannabidiol be used to steady shaky or nervous hand for precision work like surgery?

I have used it for shooting pool/billiards and I'm not sure if it is a placebo or it is helping? but I am more steady.

I have seen where Cannabidiol helps this man with Parkinson's stop shacking. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rAdDdTZuNA8

I think this is a fantastic question.

As far as the Parkinson's application, it's definitely within the realm of possible. Taken form a recent review:

Preclinical research in animal models of several movement disorders have shown variable evidence for symptomatic benefits but more consistently suggest potential neuroprotective effects in several animal models of Parkinson’s (PD) and Huntington’s disease (HD). Clinical observations and clinical trials of cannabinoid-based therapies suggests a possible benefit of cannabinoids for tics and probably no benefit for tremor in multiple sclerosis or dyskinesias or motor symptoms in PD.

Kluger et al. in Movement Disorder, 2015 (The Therapeutic Potential of Cannabinoids for Movement Disorders)

As far as every-day hand steadiness, I haven't been able to find any good sources yet. I'll keep reading, and update this if I find anything interesting.
