Trauma has far reaching effects on different people.
And it’s not just on an emotional level either.
While the emotional results are the most noticeable, at least for me, there are multiple physically related complications with PTSD. And I should know, I’ve been dealing with or managing my PTSD for a number of years now. However, I have recently added THCV to the mix as far as treatment options. This has made a sizable difference. I was first introduced to the idea of using marijuana to manage PTSD symptoms. This was something that had worked for a ton of people in my support group. So I provided it a try myself. There was an almost immediate positive effect when I used medical marijuana. But the psychoactive component wasn’t especially nice for me. I enjoyed the calm I was able to get however the high made it challenging for me to function in my normal life. That’s what’s so amazing about this minor cannabinoid. THCV gives me the calming effect of weed without having so much of the challenge with the psychoactive qualities of pot. And this has been a major game changer for me. Adding CBN to the THCV therapy has also been unquestionably beneficial. The CBN has a certain calming effect that I can feel quite literally. It’s sort of like a mild valium without the fuzziness of the medication. I add the CBN on days where the PTSD symptoms are a bit more difficult to manage. This helps the THCV to help me to calm a bit faster plus to find a grounded perspective with everything.
