Studies show that cannabinoids target pain by inhibiting neuronal transmission in pain pathways.
A recent study published in the Journal of Psychoneuroendocrinology demonstrated that CBD treatment following a traumatic experience may help regulate emotional response and stress. Researchers found that the cannabinoid compounds in cannabis oil worked on multiple parts of the brain. They worked to reduce the impairment associated with post-traumatic stress and speeding patients’ emotional recovery.
Another study, also published in the Journal of Psychopharmacology, found that CBD had a strong positive effect on patients suffering from social anxiety disorder (SAD). Study participants were either given 400 milligrams of CBD or a placebo. The results showed that “relative to placebo, CBD was associated with significantly decreased subjective anxiety.”
The American Legion stated that a significant number of veterans who have PTSD and TBI and have used medical cannabis would attest that it works in treating their mental condition. The group stated that many veterans have turned to cannabis as an alternative to opioids and antidepressants, which could adversely affect mood and personality and which, in turn, gives veterans thoughts of suicide.
The American Legion released a national survey among veterans. The survey showed that more than 80 percent of veterans want to see medical cannabis become a federally legal option for the treatment of physical and mental conditions they suffer from.
An article published in the European Journal of Pharmacology explored the “substantial anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory effects” of cannabis with regards to chronic pain. Researchers found that CBD reduced the content of several pain associated markers, indicating “a potential for therapeutic use of cannabidiol in chronic painful states.”
