Understanding PTSD

As mentioned above, PTSD is a disorder that stems from trauma, and it’s described as repetitive re-experiencing of the trauma. What happens is that the portion of the brain that controls fear is triggered, causing the person to relive the event repeatedly, especially in response to certain similar stimuli or events occurring around them.

Some PTSD reactions include the following:

  • Detachment
  • Emotionally numb
  • Exaggerated startle
  • Inability to control emotions, including sadness or anger
  • Recurring nightmares
  • Inability to sleep
  • Hypervigilance
  • Substance abuse

Treatments are available to certainly help diminish the effects of PTSD, and studies have shown that Hemp Extract could be very beneficial to victims of PTSD.

For instance, one study focusing on military personnel showed that many felt relief  in regards to their PTSD symptoms with the use of Hemp Extract in comparison to other treatments.
