Study: Cannabinoids Offer Therapeutic Benefits for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

Post Traumatic Stress DisorderYet another study has found that cannabinoids may treat or at least greatly benefit those with post traumatic stress disorder (and may prevent it if administered shortly after a traumatic event). The new study was published in the journal Behavioural Pharmacology, and published online by the National Institute of Health.

“There is substantial evidence from studies in humans and animal models for a role of the endocannabinoid system in the control of emotional states”, says the study’s abstract. It states that preliminary studies in humans “suggest that treatment with cannabinoids may decrease PTSD symptoms including sleep quality, frequency of nightmares, and hyperarousal.”
