In this installment of our informational video series, Jennifer Betz talks to therapist Dana Grande about how medical marijuana may help treat some of the problematic symptoms of PTSD.

Anyone who has been through extreme stress or trauma can develop post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and there is never any shame in getting help and support.

Causes of PTSD are varied, but they include things like:

Traumatic events
Illness or death of a loved one
Personal illness
Major life adjustments
Stressful situations related to COVID
Accidents that cause injuries
Unhealthy family situations

Symptoms of PTSD can crop up months after the event, and they may persist long-term unless treatment is initiated. There can be many symptoms of PTSD, but the most common ones include:

Anxiety
Depression
Insomnia
Avoiding situations that remind you of your trauma
Irritability
Loss of appetite
Nausea
Panic attacks
Dissociation
Racing/intrusive thoughts
Nightmares/flashbacks
Guilt

Medical marijuana can help people who are experiencing symptoms of PTSD by easing anxiety and making it easier to get to sleep and stay asleep. Medical marijuana has been proven to help veterans manage PTSD, and it is a natural way to get some relief so you can move on and start feeling better.

It’s always important to include the guidance of a mental health professional into your treatment plan, and Ohio Marijuana Card is here to help! Our therapists are trained to recognize the symptoms of PTSD, and they will work with you to determine if medical marijuana is right for you.
