CBD Therapy Helps Young Girl with PTSD

Research has proven cannabidiol (CBD) to be an effective natural treatment option for many conditions including anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) due to its ability to regulate the body’s endocannabinoid system.  Current pharmaceutical treatment options for anxiety and PSTD often come with known, severe side effects, leading individuals to consider CBD.

Doctors at the University of Colorado School of Medicine in Fort Collins, Colorado, prescribed CBD as an alternate therapy for a ten year old girl who had suffered from sexual abuse and, in turn, developed PTSD.  Pharmaceuticals were providing partial symptom relief but the effects weren’t long-lasting and she struggled with the side effects.  The CBD treatment effectively decreased her anxiety and she showed steady improvement of both sleep duration and quality.
