It is no fun living in Boca Raton if you cannot get outside and enjoy the things you love doing. Some patients have just been diagnosed with a health condition or have been coping with symptoms for years. If your chronic disease symptoms are slowing you down or making your life more difficult, medical cannabis treatments may be the answer.
Did you know that there are almost 800 different strains of cannabis? Different types of cannabis plants have more pronounced effects. Some can help reduce pain by addressing inflammation in the endocannabinoid system. Other strains like Indica’s are heavier and more potent, creating a drowsy effect. This can be a good way for patients who suffer pain-related insomnia to improve their health with better quality sleep.
Medical Cannabis for Florida Veterans With Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
Did you know that from 2008 to 2017 there were more than 6,000 American veteran suicide deaths? The diagnosis of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is one of the qualifying health conditions in Florida, that allows veterans to get a Florida Registry Identification Card.
How does medical cannabis work for American veterans with PTSD? Some studies have suggested that cannabinoids could act against PTSD by activating the cannabinoid receptor type 2 (CB2). This may trigger an anti-inflammatory response that reduces stressors and health symptoms that accompany extreme anxiety and trauma.
Veterans living in Florida who have a formal diagnosis of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder may apply for the Patient Registry Identification Card. Psychotropic medications can often have debilitating side-effects, including depression, mood disorders, weight gain, and more. While opioid medications end the lives of over 60,000 Americans every year, we can create a positive impact by encouraging veterans to try medical cannabis therapeutically at home.
