CBD Proves to be an Effective Therapy for PTSD

Since the discovery that the endocannabinoid system is involved in emotional memory processing, researchers have begun to examine whether cannabidiol, or CBD, could be an effective therapeutic treatment option for those suffering from PTSD.

Post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, is a psychiatric disorder that will affect approximately 10% of people at some point in their lives.  PTSD can occur when people fail to acclimate following a traumatic experience.  PTSD can affect people of all ages.  Since the discovery that the endocannabinoid system is involved in emotional memory processing, researchers have begun to examine whether cannabidiol, or CBD, which has a regulatory effect on the endocannabinoid system, could be an effective therapeutic treatment option for those suffering from PTSD.

CBD is one of the many molecular compounds of the hemp plant.  CBD is extracted from industrial hemp and does not share the psychoactive properties of THC.  Preclinical studies performed in rats showed that CBD had the ability to eradicate negative memories, as well as, block them from returning.  The preclinical trials were promising enough to justify treating individuals affected by PTSD with cannabidiol and the results were similarly positive.
