It’s a hard road for those suffering with post-traumatic stress disorder.
First of all, it’s difficult enough getting recognition, diagnosis, and treatment.
Unless you are a veteran of a foreign war or a survivor of physical or sexual abuse, you are heavily scrutinized by mental health professionals. Once you are finally inspected, the road doesn’t get much easier. It’s not exactly easy treating a disorder that can cause depression, anxiety, panic attacks, aggressive mood swings, and psychotic breaks with a single medication, however you can give the patient an antidepressant, an anxiety reducing benzodiazepine, and a mood stabilizer love neurontin, however the cocktail of drugs will not necessarily reduce symptoms across the board. It’s likely that the drugs used for PTSD treatment will at some point worsen a single or more symptoms of the disorder itself. An anxiety reducing drug could slow someone down enough to increase depressive symptoms, while more than 2 antidepressants are capable of instigating manic mood swings in some people. It’s reassuring that mental health research in minor cannabinoids is showing extreme potential. A lot of people are already taking CBD extracts in varying forms to treat anxiety and depression, including some with PTSD. CBG is another cannabinoid that could be effective in mental health treatment, possibly in mood regulation. But the cannabinoid that might have the most immediate potential for PTSD treatment is THCV. It has been shown to lessen both anxiety symptoms and full blown panic attacks in patients suffering from PTSD. Wholesale cannabinoid manufacturers offer THCV distillate oils that are created through large scale hemp extractions. These products are clean, safe, and free of any real THC that could trigger a drug test.
