What it PTSD?

PTSD is a mental health problem that some people may develop after experiencing or witnessing a life-threatening or traumatic event. If symptoms last more than a few months, it may be PTSD.

The condition may last months or years, with triggers that can bring back memories of the trauma accompanied by intense emotional and physical reactions.

  • intrusive thoughts or images
  • nightmares
  • intense distress at real or symbolic reminders of the trauma
  • physical sensations such as pain, sweating, nausea or trembling
  • avoidance of situations that bring back memories of the trauma
  • heightened reactions, anxiety, or depressed mood.
Treatment Options
  • Includes different types of trauma-focused psychotherapy
  • Medication(s) to manage symptoms
  • Cannabis
How Can Cannabis help

While medical research continues to develop a cure, some patients are finding relief from PTSD symptoms through the use of cannabis.

“When patients were using cannabis, the majority had a more than 75% reduction in symptoms compared to when they were not using cannabis” ( Marijuana Doctors).

According to scientists, people with PTSD often have an endocannabinoid deficiency and consuming cannabis can help with its symptoms. This is believed to lessen symptoms and improve mental balance to the patient.
