“Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a potentially debilitating mental health problem.
There has been a recent surge of interest regarding the use of cannabinoids in the treatment of PTSD.
We therefore sought to systematically review and assess the quality of the clinical evidence of the effectiveness of cannabinoids for the treatment of PTSD.
We found that cannabinoids may decrease PTSD symptomology, in particular sleep disturbances and nightmares.
Evidence that cannabinoids may help reduce global PTSD symptoms, sleep disturbances, and nightmares indicates that future well-controlled, randomized, double-blind clinical trials are highly warranted.”
