How Medical Marijuana Can Help PTSD
The current treatments for PTSD include therapy and medications to reduce anxiety, but both have complications. Therapy may not offer the relief that a PTSD sufferer needs from physical symptoms, while traditional medications can only target the physical symptoms of PTSD, and often come with unpleasant side effects such as weight gain and a lowered libido.
Because cannabinoid receptors are located in both the brain and throughout the body, medical marijuana treatment can provide relief from symptoms such as anxiety, stress, depression and hallucinations, as well as relief from the physical symptoms of PTSD such as pain and the inability to sleep.
