PTSD and the Endocannabinoid System (ECS)

E-mail Print PDF

Many people who have survived life-threatening events experience Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), a complex condition that is difficult to treat successfully. Prescribed medications are often ineffective and/or are accompanied by undesirable side effects. Misunderstood and stigmatized, patients are often discouraged and under-served by currently available treatment options.  However, research into the endocannabinoid system (ECS) suggests that cannabis may help relieve some of the symptoms of PTSD.  

In New Jersey, the Assembly passed a bill (A3726) to add PTSD as a qualifying condition for the medical marijuana program.  While there is a companion bill in the Senate, it has not been voted on as of November 2015.

Below is a collection of studies exploring the link between PTSD and the ECS:
