The suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, PTSD, stems from a horrific event, which lead to the individual’s brain producing high levels of adrenaline and stress hormones. This powerful experience creates a neuropathway in the brain, like a bridge to the experience that causes repetitive playback, or flashbacks of the traumatic memory bringing with it all the stress and emotions that played out at the time. This re-experiencing has a knock-on effect causing things like insomnia, depression, and social isolation.

Cannabidiol, CBD oil helps restore balance to the brain, helping recondition neuropathways, halting the repetitive playback of the trauma, and so diverting one away from the anxiety, stress, and depression.

CBD improves the production of sleep hormones too, providing one with all-round relief as numerous people are discovering compared to the already available drugs that come with added side-effects.
