PTSD and Medical Marijuana
PTSD Qualifies for Medical Marijuana in Michigan
Did you know that PTSD affects one in every 11 people, and women are twice as likely to be diagnosed? Those suffering from PTSD in Michigan can now use medical marijuana to relieve their symptoms. Research is continuing to show medical cannabis as a successful treatment option for those living with PTSD. Common PTSD symptoms include lack of sleep, irritability, anxiety, and more.
PTSD or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is not just something that is unique to veterans. PTSD can affect anyone who’s witnessed or experienced a traumatic event in their lifetime. Medical marijuana is a great treatment option for anyone who suffers from PTSD for many reasons. Prior to medical cannabis being legalized in Michigan, many patients suffering from PTSD would use cannabis illegally to help relieve nightmares, panic attacks, control overwhelming emotions, and decrease self-destructive behavior. Although there is still research to be done on PTSD and medical marijuana, studies in the past have found that cannabis can reduce activity in the amygdala, the part of the brain that responds to fear and threats. While another study has shown other cannabinoids’ ability to get rid of traumatic memories. Patients can find various strain options available at Michigan dispensaries, that are specifically grown with genetics to help uplift one’s mood, relieve anxiety, and help patients return to a calm/relaxed state.
