Can CBD help patients with PTSD?

Updated: Aug 3, 2019

One of the most widespread applications of CBD is in the treatment of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. PTSD is a very common disorder with more than 3 million US cases per year.

The symptoms of PTSD are often uncomfortable, including nightmares, avoidance of certain activities, heightened reactions, depression and anxiety. The most common treatment for PTSD in the United States is pharmaceutical medication that often carries with it a long list of serious side effects.

Those suffering from PTSD often feel relegated to a life of pharmaceutical drugs – that is, until they stumble upon the wonderful healing effects of CBD. Cannabidiol, or CBD, is an all-natural, plant-based PTSD treatment option derived from hemp. Although PTSD itself is not curable – because the event can’t be un-lived – it’s symptoms no longer have to run your life. Interestingly enough, PTSD is one of the approved conditions for medical marijuana in many states.

Regardless of the symptoms associated with your PTSD, which can be very widespread, CBD can help!

Recommended CBD Regimen for PTSD

When formulating a CBD regimen for a specific disease or illness like PTSD, it’s important to understand that CBD should be used regularly for maximum relief. Meaning it should be used as a preventative first – it can also be used to manage acute symptom flare ups, but the preventative maintenance is most important! Think about it like any other dietary supplement or medication, you want to establish a baseline concentration in your system.

Managing Acute Symptom Flare Ups

In addition to a daily PTSD management program prescribed by a CBD doctor, many people find they still need a safe way to manage acute flare ups. Whether it’s triggered by a recent event or a specific smell  – we recommend vaporizing CBD isolate to combat these acute PTSD flare ups. The benefit of vaporizing or dabbing CBD isolate is that the relief can be felt almost instantaneously. CBD isolate is 99% pure CBD and provides a wave of relief that can be felt throughout the whole body.

You can also ingest more CBD in the form of tinctures or pills to combat these episodes; just keep in mind that the onset time will be significantly longer than vaporizing.
