Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a condition of persistent mental and emotional stress occurring as a result of injury or severe psychological shock, typically involving disturbance of sleep and constant vivid recall of the experience, with dulled responses to others and to the outside world.

New research suggests the biological mechanisms behind the therapeutic effect of cannabis use for PTSD treatment. Two recent studies point to the way that cannabinoids may help treat PTSD. One shows how cannabis can reduce activity in the amygdala - a part of the brain associated with fear responses to threats. Meanwhile, another suggests that the plant's cannabinoids could play a role in extinguishing traumatic memories. Both effects could be therapeutic for those suffering from PTSD according to the recent studies.
