A Veteran’s Story: Using CBD Oil to Treat PTSD – Episode 30
/

Is CBD oil an effective treatment for PTSD? To learn more, we interviewed Cherissa Jackson, the Chief Medical Executive for AMVETS and host of the AMVETS web series titled, “Who’s at the Table”. As a retired U.S. Air Force nurse who survived 4 deployments, she suffered sleepless nights caused by the flashbacks of war. She tried Ambien, Benadryl, Nyquil, any over the counter medications and nothing worked for her. Then, a fellow veteran suggested CBD oil. Listen to her story and how she uses her current role to educate Veterans on the many benefits of CBD oil. We continue the conversation with our very own U.S. Air Force veteran, Dr. Ben Gonzalez. He clarifies how CBD oil reduces PTSD episodes and decreases the need for treating pain with opioids. Plus, callers share how CBD oil helps with their shingles, PTSD, anxiety and more.
