Cannabinoids, the chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant, have been explored for their potential therapeutic effects on various conditions, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). While research is ongoing, there is a growing body of evidence suggesting that cannabinoids, particularly cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), may offer benefits for individuals with PTSD. 

Once thought of as a condition that only affected  ‘Veterans’, PTSD is now better understood as a mental health condition that can affect anyone who has suffered shock or trauma. This can include accidents or dealing with a sudden death.

The causes of PTSD are complex since they can vary so much. Furthermore, the way PTSD manifests itself can very from patient to patient. However, we can research to gain a better understanding of the causes and symptoms.

Then we look at how cannabinoids can treat the symptoms of PTSD, including a compilation of trials and results.
