Post-traumatic Stress Disorder 

 

PTSD can be the result of several different traumas. It can cause anything from emotional instability to physical ailments. A large majority of those suffering from PTSD are looking for an alternative to their prescriptions and have turned to cannabis. Education on the matter is crucial, as drug interactions and histories of chemical dependence must be considered. And as always, please have candid conversations with your doctor prior to starting a cannabis regimen. They don’t have to like it, as long as it’s safe for you, but they do have to respect your freedom of choice when it comes to your own healthcare.
