PTSD

WHAT IS POST-TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER?

Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a psychiatric disorder that can occur in people who have experienced or witnessed a traumatic event such as a natural disaster, a serious accident, a terrorist act, war/combat, rape or other violent personal assault.

PTSD was mostly related to post war veterans but can occur in all people, in people of any ethnicity, nationality or culture, and any age. PTSD affects approximately 3 percent of U.S. adults, and an estimated one in 12 people will be diagnosed PTSD in their lifetime. Women are 2x as likely as men to have PTSD.

PTSD patients describe having intense, disturbing thoughts and feelings related to their experience. This can last long after the traumatic event has ended. They may have nightmare or flashbacks; they may feel sadness, fear or anger; and they may feel detached from other people. Usually patients end up avoiding situations or people that remind them of the traumatic event, and they may have strong negative reactions to something as ordinary as a loud noise or an accidental touch.

POST-TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER SYMPTOMS

Symptoms of PTSD fall into four categories and can vary in severity.

  1. Intrusive thoughts such as involuntary and repeated memories; distressing dreams; or flashbacks of the traumatic event. Flashbacks can be very vivid and patients feel they are re-living the traumatic experience or seeing it before their eyes.
  2. Avoiding reminders of the traumatic event may include avoiding places, people, activities, objects and situations that bring on distressing memories. People may try to avoid remembering or talking about what happened or how they feel about it.
  3. Negative thoughts and feelings may include ongoing and distorted beliefs about oneself or others (e.g., “No one can be trusted”, “I am bad”); ongoing fear, anger or guilt and much less interest in activities previously enjoyed.
  4. Arousal and reactive symptoms may include being irritable and angry; being easily startled; or having problems concentrating or sleeping.

HOW MEDICAL MARIJUANA HELPS POST-TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER PATIENTS

Recent studies and countless PTSD patient testimonials show medical marijuana’s ability to soothe anxiety, alleviate sleep disorders, calm aggression , and stabilize mood swings.

Several studies speak to the potential of cannabidiol (CBD)  and its ability to counteract anxiety. As New York University psychiatrist and researcher Esther Blessing summarizes:

“I think there’s good evidence to suggest that CBD could be an effective treatment of anxiety…”

According to psychiatrist Sue Sisley:

“I think the most intriguing thing is that a single plant can provide monotherapy for this whole constellation of [PTSD] symptoms.”
