Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is something so many American’s struggle with. In the documentary “Restrepo” it was said that many veterans coming back from Afghanistan weren’t being treated for PTSD because they hadn’t yet found an effective treatment. People coming back from war in Afghanistan were facing more PTSD problems than a lot of the veterans in Vietnam. Although PTSD impacts far more people than just our veterans, there still aren’t many effective treatments that have been found to treat them.
According to a journal entry in 2015 from “Neurotherapeutics”, evidence is showing that cannabidiol (CBD) is a pharmacologically broad-spectrum drug that has a growing interest in recent years as a treatment for a variety of neuropsychiatric disorders, including PTSD. It states:
“We found that existing preclinical evidence strongly supports CBD as a treatment for generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, obsessive–compulsive disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder when administered acutely; however, few studies have investigated chronic CBD dosing. Likewise, evidence from human studies supports an anxiolytic role of CBD, but is currently limited to acute dosing, also with few studies in clinical populations. Overall, current evidence indicates CBD has considerable potential as a treatment for multiple anxiety disorders, with need for further study of chronic and therapeutic effects in relevant clinical populations.”
Although more research is needed, it is encouraging to see more research being done regarding more natural medications. It’s not realistic to expect CBD to be able to help everyone with PTSD, but there must be a better solution than what we have currently. In 2012, over 5,000 suicides in the US alone occurred because of combat-based PTSD. It is also the 10th leading cause of death in the United States according to Health Research Funding.
