Hi there!
In a 2017 study published in the Journal of Neuropsychiatry and Clinical Neurosciences, researchers treated 19 adults with Tourette Syndrome with inhaled cannabis. All 19 patients experienced clinically significant symptom relief from obsessive-compulsive behaviors, anxiety, irritability and rage, as well as up to a 60% reduction in tic severity.

Also, in a 2016 single case report, the test subject received 10.8mg of THC and 10mg of CBD twice per day in a 1:1 oro-mucosal spray (Sativex). (start no higher than 2.5mg of THC)
"He completed the Yale Global Tic Severity Scale as a subjective measure, and was videoed at each stage. The videos were objectively rated by two assessors, blind to the stage of treatment, using the Original Rush Videotape Rating Scale. Both subjective and objective measures demonstrated marked improvement in the frequency and severity of motor and vocal tics post-treatment."
