Veterans face challenges most of us never have to deal with, from PTSD to chronic pain to difficulties assimilating. If you face those challenges you’re not alone.
According to the Veterans Association (VA), many veterans are troubled by Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), anxiety and depression as well as other mental health issues, leading to difficulties adjusting to civilian life following their military service.
Since veterans often deal with combat-related chronic pain, escalating their already challenging adjustment back to “regular life”, doctors tend to prescribe opioids to deal with this persistent pain, resulting in various side effects like stress, anxiety, mood swings, and sleep disorders.
In recent years, the conversation has turned to hemp extract, known for its mental and physical therapeutic benefits. Given the positive impact of hemp extract and the cannabinoids found within it on our body's own endocannabinoid system, it is thought to be ideal for those who get anxious from experiences, situations, or in random moments. Therefore, veterans currently suffering from PTSD who get sudden episodes of significant stress and anxiety may be able to obtain relief using hemp extract following these traumatic incidents and significantly decrease the adverse effects of the disorder. This could be a revolutionary tool for the military and VA to help manage and alleviate symptoms of PTSD and post-service anxiety.
