CBD for PTSD and other mental disorders

Mental disorders such as PTSD, Anxiety, Depression, Schizophrenia, ADHD, Bi-polar, and others deal with neurotransmitters that communicate with each other resulting in thinking, emotions, remembering, moving, and other things most of us take for granted. Neurotransmitters are cells of the nervous system in your body, mostly in the brain. Well, guess what? The majority of the CB receptors in your body are also in the brain. When those neurotransmitters are not communicating correctly the levels of serotonin in your brain go haywire causing the dopamine to be altered. When those dopamine levels are not right you have the result of some type of mental disorder. The National Alliance of Mental Health (NAMI) states that mental illness is common throughout the United States and tens of millions are affected by it and that only half of those individuals receive treatment. A very sad statistic if you ask me.

Wouldn’t it be grand if we could eliminate the problem of mental disorders altogether? Well, we cannot. Some of us believe a more natural way to treat mental issues is warranted. People don’t want the mental disorder they live with and everyone wants to live a happier and healthier life without the mental anguish.

The pharmaceutical medications used to treat mental disorders can have severe side effects. A portion of the individuals suffering from mental disorders will choose to stop medicating because the side effects are worse than their illness. What if I told you that CBD (Cannabidiol) Hemp Oil could be the answer to managing those illnesses without severe side effects. CBD Hemp Oils reacts with the CB receptors already in your body and those receptors are abundant in the brain. CBD is Non-Psychoactive and anxiolytic, meaning it does not cause psychosis and helps reduce the levels of anxiety. CBD is also known to keep serotonin levels in check which keeps dopamine at the proper level. The psychological community has entertained the idea of treatment with CBD to be somewhat beneficial and some have stated CBD has a profile similar to antipsychotic drugs. See for yourself in these reports. https://ww.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/227161600, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/ 22729452 and https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/PMC3079847

As a matter of fact; I have witnessed CBD Hemp Oil help an individual with PTSD. One of our clients at the Puff Smart store in Branson West had a moderate case of PTSD when he returned home from Afghanistan. He has been using CBD for about two years now. When he first came into our store he was having difficulty being in larger crowds of people, certain sounds would cause a panic within him, and his sleep patterns were terribly off so he experienced bouts of unexplainable anger. Within the first month of using CBD Hemp Oil, I noticed a huge difference in his overall personality. Today he is incredibly and remarkably a different person for the better.
