PTSD is a Qualifying Condition in Florida for Access to Medical Marijuana

Research indicates many patients who have been using marijuana prior to legalization were actually self medicating to treat PTSD.  

To help determine if the symptoms you have been experiencing could be related to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), take the test below.

Post-traumatic stress disorder is a type of anxiety disorder that benefits from medical marijuana. It can occur after you've seen or experienced a traumatic event that involved the threat of injury or death. PTSD can occur at any age. It can follow a natural disaster such as a hurricane, flood, or fire, or events such as a traumatic accident, deaths among family or close friends, assault, domestic abuse, imprisonment, rape, child neglect/abuse, terrorism, bullying, and war. We have found many patients using marijuana from the street to be self medicating from traumatic childhood events, especially victims of sexual assault as children.

Not all wounds are visible. If you have suffered through an emotional life experience you could be at risk for PTSD.

Post-traumatic stress disorder is a condition originally diagnosed in soldiers, but has been identified as a medical condition that can affect any person who has been exposed to an emotionally overwhelming experience. Medical marijuana has been shown to be effective in treating PTSD.
