course overview

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that’s triggered by a terrifying event — either experiencing it or witnessing it. Symptoms may include flashbacks, nightmares, and severe anxiety, as well as uncontrollable thoughts about the event. Symptoms of PTSD may include a persistent, heightened experience of alarm and distress, and a failure of memory extinction processes to diminish the emotional impact of traumatic memories.

Nearly everyone will experience a range of reactions after trauma, yet most people recover from initial symptoms naturally. Those who continue to experience problems may be diagnosed with PTSD.

Did you know that women are twice as likely as men to develop PTSD? Did you know there is an emerging body of evidence demonstrating the important role the CB1 receptor and endocannabinoid signaling, in the extinction of adversive memories? Did you know that the anecdotal evidence provided by veterans who have had a positive impact on the severity of their PTSD condition with the use of medical marijuana, has fueled research for cannabis and PTSD?

Although Cannabis remains a Schedule I Drug under U.S. federal law, at the start of 2020, 33 states — and the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico — have medical marijuana programs, giving legal access to 2/3 of Americans. Eleven of those states and DC also have adult-use cannabis laws on the books. Due to the lack of knowledge of the legality of discussing medical marijuana, medical professionals are frequently hesitant to discuss medical cannabis with patients.
