Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a psychological disorder that is very common among war veterans. However, PTSD is a condition that can affect anyone that has experienced any kind of traumatic event such as, a car accident, assault, or natural disaster. Cannabinoids, and particularly cannabidiol (CBD) have promise to lessen and relieve the multiple symptoms of PTSD: uncontrollable anxiety, flashbacks, chronic stress, insomnia and more. Here are some of the key ways CBD may be of benefit to your multiple PTSD symptoms.

How The Effects of Cannabinoids And CBD Help Regulate PTSD Symptoms

The two primary cannabinoids, THC and CBD, influence your body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS): which plays a primary role in your emotional and physical homeostasis (balance). CBD oil has been shown to effect the three core symptoms of PTSD, known as, re-experiencing, numbing and avoidance and hyperarousal. CBDs influence on the CBD1 and CB2 receptors modulates the release of neurotransmitters that produce a very wide range of effects on the central nervous system. These effects include an increase in pleasure and altering memory processes. CBD helps block the continuous retrieved memory of the traumatic event and the extension of the memory along with the associated anxiety response.

Studies show promise of effectiveness and possible potential extension of targeting the endocannabinoid system to treat haunting traumatic memories. According to the study, “increasing evidence points to the endocannabinoid system as a key system in the regulation of emotionality and memory”. This is such a key factor in the beneficial use of Phytocannabinoid Rich CBD oil for anxiety disorders, in general and for PTSD, in particular.

There are ongoing studies, for severe cases, that indicate that CBD may be used as an adjunct with psychotherapy procedures to enhance extinction memory therapy.

CBD For PTSD Symptoms of Insomnia and Nightmares

Insomnia is one of the primary symptoms of PTSD and it is often accompanied with nightmares. This is particularly prevalent in military veterans that often suffer from recurring, frightening, dreams and images. CBD has been demonstrated to be effective in regulating sleep patterns and reducing the anxiety that stimulates nightmares. Improved, undisturbed sleeping patterns also promote less waking anxiety and improved daily coping skills.

CBD As A Natural Alternative To Pharmaceutical Anti-Anxiety Medication

The dangerous side effects of pharmaceutical anti-depressants and anti-anxiety medications have increased the use and research of CBD oil as a natural alternative.
CBD is non-toxic, non-psychoactive and has been demonstrated to have negligible side effects.

When CBD is administered shortly after the trauma occurs it has demonstrated the potential to help prevent the onset of PTSD symptoms. In addition, both dosing upon feeling a triggered response and dosing as a daily supplement seem to be viable options. As in all CBD dosing, finding what works best for your physical, psychological and emotional profile and condition is a matter of your personal optimum.

It goes without saying; if you are under medical treatment for PTSD, please consult your doctor about using CBD.CBD should not be used in the place of any prescription drugs your doctor has prescribed to you.
