Patients with PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) experience symptom improvements following the use of cannabis and cannabis products, according to a study published n the journal Expert Review of Neurotherapeutics.
For the study researchers examined the safety and efficacy of cannabis products in 162 PTSD patients with a physician’s authorization to use medical cannabis. Study subjects were participants in the UK Medical Cannabis Registry who consumed either cannabis extracts or THC-dominant flowers for a period of six-months.
The study claims that PTSD patients saw “statistically significant improvements” in a variety of domains, including sleep, anxiety, and stress. Adverse events were found to be mild in severity.
