I have treated patients with PTSD from a variety of sources, military, sexual, and childhood trauma amongst others. These patients often suffer from anxiety, depression, insomnia, anorexia, nightmares and flashbacks to name a few.
I tailor treatment to the patients’ symptoms but give patients freedom to titrate the medication to therapeutic benefit. Those with heavy amounts of anxiety, I generally advise to start with a 4:1 CBD: THC ratio to alleviate neuropsychiatric symptoms stemming from PTSD.
All individuals who have come back for follow up have noted an improved control and in many cases near resolution of symptoms. These individuals come from all walks of life and have been able to get their lives back on track.
