Scientific Research

Many doctors around the world support the use of medical marijuana and have the scientific research to enforce that it can be used to treat a wide variety of health conditions. An expert in the field, Dr. A. Neumeister has the following to say about PTSD and marijuana as a treatment:
“There’s not a single pharmacological treatment out there that has been developed specifically for PTSD,” says Dr. Neumeister. “That’s a problem. There’s a consensus among clinicians that existing pharmaceutical treatments such as antidepressant simple do not work. In fact, we know very well that people with PTSD who use marijuana — a potent cannabinoid — often experience more relief from their symptoms than they do from antidepressants and other psychiatric medications. Clearly, there’s a very urgent need to develop novel evidence-based treatments for PTSD.”
