Cannabis Temporarily Relieves PTSD Symptoms
By Rolling Up
Cannabis could be one of the keys to helping people who suffer from post traumatic stress disorder. Post-traumatic stress disorder is triggered by a terrifying event, either experiencing it or witnessing it. Symptoms of PTSD include flashbacks, nightmares, severe anxiety, and uncontrollable thoughts about the event.
We are now in an era where cannabis has become a resource to promote the well-being of human beings that are suffering. PTSD has the ability to overcome a person’s thoughts and emotions, which controls their perception of reality and makes it impossible to maintain a quality in life.
Psychotherapy and medication is currently being used in Western medicine practices to combat the effects of PTSD. Cannabis has been proven as a safer alternative to prescription medication that can have long term and serious side effects.
CBD and THC have the ability to relieve and provide therapy in those suffering with PTSD by activating the CB1 and CB2 receptors in the endocannabinoid system in the body to promote happiness, pleasure, and good memories.
Research is still being uncovered about the effects and how cannabis works within the body. Brain imaging research reveals that patients with PTSD have an abundance of cannabinoid receptors but produce little endogenous cannabinoids to lock them in. PTSD is a serious illness and can cripple everyday life and cause emotional imbalance, especially people who were war veterans and others who have experienced major trauma. Cannabis can help empower the lives with people suffering from PTSD symptoms and take control of their life.
