Cases of PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) are increasing at an alarming rate.
Estimates by federal agencies show that up to 24 million Americans are living with PTSD, according to the Centers for Disease Control – and 22 veterans suffering from PTSD commit suicide every day in the United States.
The associated anxiety, depression, and physical pain also has helped feed an escalating opioid addiction problem.
My team and I have talked to dozens of doctors and researchers this year in New York, San Francisco, Toronto, and so on. The word we keep hearing is: epidemic.
Just listen to physicians like Dr. Ronald Aung-Din, practicing neurologist and Isodiol International Inc.‘s senior medical advisor, or Dr. Julia Arnsten, the chief of general internal medicine at Montefiore Medical Center in New York.
We’ve also talked to numerous veterans and veterans’ advocacy groups.
We have yet to hear from even one source that isn’t encouraged by early research findings – formal or anecdotal – that suggest cannabis can be a more effective treatment for folks suffering from PTSD than use of highly addictive, opioid-based drugs.
We want you to take a look at this video we’ve prepared about the topic.
It’s a powerful reminder of the limitless potential of cannabis in a fast-legalizing landscape. Click this link to hear what we’re talking about.
