How Veterans Benefit from CBD
CBD Oil for Veterans: Can CBD for PTSD help Veterans?
Veterans who suffer from PTSD often struggle to adjust to regular life and daily living. In 2017, the average veteran deaths by suicide was at 20 deaths per day. Research shows that many of these deaths are associated with an over-prescription of opioids and other medications given to these veterans with PTSD and related ailments like chronic pain. Opioids are potent and highly addictive. In the year 2016, over 66,000 veterans were hospitalized for opioid addiction. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring compound that provides relief for a multitude of ailments such as chronic pain, depression, inflammation, and more. Finding new pathways to peace and wellness for veterans is our goal here at The KK Shop.
CBD is a naturally occurring compound found in hemp and cannabis plants. CBD interacts with a system in our bodies called the endocannabinoid system. When we ingest CBD in any way, it works with this system to promote homeostasis within the body. A study done in 2011, shows that CBD reduces anxiety best in subjects who experienced stress before the administration of CBD. This study supports the idea that CBD is best for individuals who suffer from PTSD and get anxious from experiences, situations, and even at random times. Veterans suffering from PTSD could greatly benefit from the use of CBD. The best part about CBD is that it is naturally occurring, and non-habit-forming.
What Conditions Can CBD Help?
The list of conditions that veterans suffer with is long. From common ailments to unique disorders, it is important to understand what these veterans go through in order to better assist them on their journeys to wellness and normalcy. The following conditions are commonly experienced by veterans:
