CBD For Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a condition quite commonplace in the U.S. with millions of reported cases each year. We seem to think of first responders or military personnel as the only people who suffer from this debilitating disorder. It can be brought on by shocking life events and no one is immune – it encompasses a much broader scope. Anyone who has experienced lasting emotional trauma for any incident can develop PTSD.
People living with PTSD experience difficulties with sleep, anxiety, and depression coupled with infrequent focus and phases of harmful behavior. These symptoms tend to make daily life extremely challenging for the person living with PTSD, not to mention their loved ones. PTSD can last for many years, even a lifetime and those who suffer re-live the traumatic events over and over again.
Is there a cure – most likely not. However, a significant study published recently supports clinical evidence that using CBD for post-traumatic stress disorder is a satisfactory alternative to traditional pharmacy medications. Researchers observed a patient with PTSD who received small doses of CBD prior to going to bed and an even lower dose through the day for anxiety. Results documented a sufficient decrease of anxiety, the ability of completing daily tasks without any overwhelming difficulties as well as a progressive increase of high-quality sleep – findings also reported no side effects from CBD use.
