PTSD is a traumatic mental condition with the number of cases rising at an alarming rate. There are few known effective treatments for PTSD, so this is why many people have turned to certain cannabis strains to help with the symptoms of the condition. From our research, we have found that strains which have a high concentration of CBD tend to provide the best effects in treating the symptoms of PTSD.
In the states that have legalized marijuana for medicinal purposes, PTSD is more than likely included on the list of conditions which are allowed access to cannabis. This is because there is scientific evidence which suggests that many sufferers have found relief through the regular use of cannabis, and even a reduction in symptoms.
Central to the success of using cannabis for treating PTSD is to select the right strain. CBD rich strains are popular. Recent scientific research suggests that CBD can help PTSD sufferers decrease learned fears, which many believe is the cause of PTSD.
Here is a list of our recommended strains:
The name of this strain certainly reflects the effects it exerts on the human body. This is a great strain for forgetting about things.
