Cannabis Science – PTSD
Today we’re talking cannabis and PTSD. PTSD is short for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Frequently, symptoms of PTSD arise after experiencing or witnessing a traumatizing event of some kind. Most often, members of the military exhibit signs and symptoms of PTSD. However, normal everyday citizens can experience them after car wrecks, violent encounters,
PTSD is pretty common. It can trigger traumatic memories, depression, anxiety, and even violence. Currently, medication treatments are limited to antidepressants. However, only 11% of medication protocols of this type are effective. Now, a new alternative may have been found in the use of the cannabis plant. Interestingly, PTSD has shown to damage the endocannabinoid system.
To help better understand the relationship between PTSD and cannabis, researchers have reviewed five recent studies. Currently, most observations are simply anecdotal evidence. However, in 2020, a new study dealt with how cannabis and PTSD really relate to one another. One shows how cannabis could reduce fear response to threats. Another showed that the plant’s cannabinoids could play a role in extinguishing traumatic memories.
Hash It Out! – Rob Ruckus
Today we interview musician, co-host of A&E’s Bad Ink, and RSO enthusiast Rob Ruckus. Rob Ruckus got into the cannabis industry because of his passion for Rick Simpson Oil. And he got into RSO because he had multiple close friends and family suffer from cancer within a short period of time. Finally, he decided to look into a way to help his friends and family stop dying from the disease. Now, Rob is a huge fan and proponent of the medicinal qualities of RSO and shares his knowledge with as many people as possible.
Additionally, Rob Ruckus wrote for Vegas Cannabis Magazine for five years. Through this medium, he tried to reach people to tell them about whole plant oils and the values they can provide. However, he’s had trouble promoting the value of RSO because the Las Vegas cannabis industry is purely profit-driven. Consequently, it is quite difficult to convince dispensaries to sell and promote RSO, as creating quality product has little financial incentive. For now, there are no collectives that people who are only looking for medicinal benefits.
About Rick Simpson Oil
In essence, RSO is the cannabis plant’s oil. After developing cancer, Rick Simpson decided to develop the oil and was able to rid himself of his cancer. In fact, he believed in it so much, he began giving it out to others for free. However, because it was illegal at the time, he was raided by the government and is currently in exile.
Rob explains that everything on the planet with a spine has an endocannabinoid system. Therefore, cannabis use can help by boosting the immune system. Again, this is what we were talking about in our Cannabis Science segment and PTSD treatments. However, up until recently, cannabis use has been illegal and heavily stigmatized. Consequently, hemp growing was also made illegal in the US because it was too difficult for authorities to see the difference between the two plants. As a result, we no longer used hemp to feed to animals. That lack of the healing properties of hemp and cannabis lead to a deficit in feeding our endocannabinoid systems.
