Immediate Relief & Peace of Mind

CBD and THC are capable of helping treat people suffering from PTSD by improving the endocannabinoid system’s mediation of essential functions including memory consolidation and retrieval. By activating CB1 and CB2 receptors located throughout this core system, cannabinoids could prompt the system to produce neurotransmitters that helps promote happiness, pleasure, and memory.

So…How’s it help?

CB1 cannabinoid receptors in the body help turn off traumatic memories so that people can essentially stop paying attention to them. Cannabis can also serve to minimize or prevent nightmares that frequently occur in those suffering from PTSD. Not only that, but PTSD triggers intense stress that places a person in a constant state of awareness and tension, making it very difficult to get any sleep.

How do you take it?

To take medical marijuana for neuropathy, you can:

  • Smoke it
  • Inhale it through a device called a vaporizer
  • Eat it — for example, in a brownie or lollipop
  • Apply it to your skin in a lotion, spray, oil, or cream
  • Place a few drops of a liquid under your tongue

WHAT ARE SOME EFFECTS OF PTSD?

Depression can also be a common response after a traumatic or stressful event.
