The Problems Caused by PTSD
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) causes those that are afflicted by it to experience a number of debilitating symptoms.
Those that are impacted can undergo physical, mental, and emotional changes, are often in a state of fight-or-flight, and simple things like walking through a crowd of people can become a daunting task.
Until CBD Oil became recognized for its effectiveness in treating those with PTSD, opioids were the main treatment and they have even worse side-effects along with being psychologically addictive.
Facts about PTSD
On average, 8% of Americans (24.4 million people) suffer from PTSD where learned fear is the root cause of the disorder.
Veterans have even higher rates of PTSD with Vietnam veterans suffering about 31% of the time, 10% if they fought in the Gulf War, and 11% if they fought in Afghanistan.
PTSD can come about from a multitude of ways, not limited to war, but also domestic violence, rape, abuse (both mental and physical), witnessing death or death from an injury, a natural disaster, and even a violent personal assault.
A Story about CBD Oil and PTSD
Leo Bridgewater, a veteran of three tours and a father of two, realized after returning home that he was suffering from PTSD.
He researched some of the damaging effects that traditional treatments cause and instead turned to cannabis and CBD Oil to treat his injuries and his trauma.
Leo realized that the side-effects of traditional treatments were reason enough to avoid them and has been helped with CBD Oil and cannabis so much that he is now an advocate for legalization nationwide and helps to push other veterans to try it out for their symptoms.
How can CBD Oil relieve PTSD?
CBD Oil is the version of cannabis that doesn’t get you “high”- instead it binds to your endocannabinoid receptors through a lock-and-key combination to help ease emotional pain.
The endocannabinoid receptors in our body are those that link with anandamide, our body’s inner cannabis, to help cope with emotions on a day-to-day basis.
Those who suffer from PTSD have their symptoms due to a learned fear that CBD Oil helps to weaken and ultimately break, helping those who suffer to relearn love and acceptance in their life, instead of resistance and regret or shame.
PTSD and CBD Oil Relief
When those who suffer from PTSD come to a crossroads about what avenue to take regarding their treatment, there aren’t many healthy traditional options.
Risky side effects, addiction, depression, and learned fear that can’t be treated through pills tend to overwhelm the patients, even through the numbness they may feel.
CBD Oil offers a completely safe alternative that will help the patient cope with past trauma and get them back to being who they really are.
