PTSD & CBD

What is PTSD?

PTSD is Post-traumatic stress disorder, which affects a growing amount of people in all different times of life. Whether it stems from combat, a life-threatening natural disaster or assault. When this happens it can affect sleeping, work/school, etc., and give someone a major emotional change and perception of the world around them. Therefore this affects the quality of life.

There has been psychotherapy and medication for those falling with these symptoms, but Cannabis has emerged as a safer alternative than any prescription medication with serious side effects.

CBD & THC have been seen to help treat people suffering from PTSD by improving the endocannabinoid system. By activating the CB1 & CB2 receptors within the core system, thus promoting the neurotransmitters to happiness, pleasure & memory.

The Cannabinoids help with assisting PTSD cases by blocking the retrieval of underlying trauma, by preventing traumatic memories & nightmares. CBD has been a very popular treatment for PTSD patients and mainly are combat veterans.

A study conducted by NYU Langone Medical Center researchers showed that people suffering from PTSD have much lower levels of a neurotransmitter called anandamide than others.

What is an Anandamide: a naturally occurring arachidonic acid derivative, present in some foods and in mammalian brains, where it acts as a messenger molecule and plays a role in pain, depression, appetite, memory, and fertility.

Anandamides operate as a natural antidepressant, CB! receptors in the body turn off traumatic memories so that the person can stop giving attention to them. Thus reducing the symptoms of PTSD such as fear and anxiety.

When helping with After Effects :

Cannabis and CBD alone can help minimize and prevent nightmares, frequently occur in those suffering from PTSD. PTSD triggers intense stress that places a person in a constant state of awareness and tension, making it very difficult to get any sleep. Many people have seen help with their sleep by increasing REM sleep cycle. This also affects their daytime flashbacks and sweating at night reducing as well. Studies on cannabinoids have served that CBD and CBD with THC have been proven an effective role than many prescription medicines and antidepressants.

PTSD is very serious in the disease world and many people suffer from it. Highly reducing their quality of life and giving difficulty to those who suffer from functioning socially, and emotional imbalance can highly effect those who are war veterans and others who have experienced major trauma.

Cannabinoids like CBD can help empower the body’s endocannabinoid system and promote quality sleep, prevent traumatic memories from arising, as well as establish physical and emotional wellbeing to mitigate these devastating symptoms of PTSD and allowing patients to regain hold of their lives.
