Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PSTD) is a dissociative identity disorder, a chronic condition created by reliving traumatic experiences that involve horrific memories.
In this condition, the sufferer's psyche is fragmented resulting in strange or inappropriate behaviors. Common symptoms are intense sadness, fear or anger, anxiety and sleep disorders. The use of medical cannabis can impair certain types of memory, therefore PTSD patients who are given medical marijuana in Victorville California seem to "forget" these traumatic events.
In 2007, the largest number of CA Cannabis recommendations for mental health, were given for PTSD. Cannabis also helps relieves pain from injuries, reduce anxiety and nightmares and promote sleep. These are all beneficial for war veterans, many of whom suffer from PTSD. Cannabis also prevents patients from becoming overwhelmed and has been used by the Israeli Government on soldiers suffering from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder).
Physicians explain, cannabis can modulate memory and emotion, and prevent obsessive thinking, which allows patients to safely process their trauma instead of suppressing it, and while episodes of rage can also be reduced by Medical Marijuana. Victorville California physicians can also reduces alcoholism and opiate addiction, which are two more conditions that war vets are vulnerable to. No other psychotherapeutic drug possesses all these beneficial effects of medical marijuana in the treatment of PTSD, and its side effects are relatively mild as compared with other prescription drugs.
