CBD for PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) - Research about cannabinoids from That's Natural at

Many people suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and many of these people have been a part of the armed services.  There is a desperate need to find ways to treat the symptoms of PTSD - and non-psychoactive cannabinoids, like CBD, may be able to play a part.  Here is some research showing preliminary findings and evidence that there may be a relationship between the Endocannabinoid System and how symptoms of anxiety, depression, fear and more could be treated with various cannabinoids.
