Raphael Mecholaum an Israeli organic chemist who discovered THC, and the endocannabinoid system, and has studied the marijuana plant for decades... “We have just scratched the surface,” he says, “and I greatly regret that I don’t have another lifetime to devote to this field, for we may well discover that cannabinoids are involved in some way in all human diseases.”

PTSD  Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is not limited to Veterans returning from war. Although the Department of Health and Human Services recently signed off on a proposal to study marijuana's potential as part of treatment for veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder. Marijuana is approved to treat PTSD in some states already. In New Mexico, PTSD is the number one reason for people to get a license for medical marijuana, but this is the first time the U.S. government has approved a proposal that incorporates smoked or vaporized marijuana, which is currently classified by the government as a drug with no accepted medical applications. Naturally occurring cannabinoids, similar to THC, help regulate the system that causes fear and anxiety in the body and brain. Three classes of symptoms characterize PTSD: re-experiencing, avoidance, and hyper arousal (e.g., flashbacks, social isolation, insomnia). The persistence of PTSD over time is attributed to changes in brain chemistry that occur at the time of the trauma, when adrenaline and stress hormones are hyper-responsive. 

Marijuana, particularly strains high in CBD (cannabidiol), has been increasingly used to treat PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) and anxiety conditions. CBD is known for its calming and anti-inflammatory properties, making it a popular choice for those seeking relief from the symptoms of these conditions without the psychoactive effects of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). Research suggests that cannabinoids may help reduce anxiety and improve sleep, which are often disrupted in individuals with PTSD. However, it's important to consult with a certified marijuana doctor to determine the appropriate strain and dosage, as the effects can vary greatly between individuals.
