Virtual: Mental Impacts of Cannabis on PTS

June 28 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Mental Impacts of Cannabis on PTS
in collaboration with Balance Veterans and Operation 1620 

Post-traumatic stress (PTS) is a result of stress, trauma, and their accompanying emotions being stored in the body without being fully processed. It can last months or years, with triggers that can bring back memories of the trauma accompanied by intense emotional and physical reactions.  Fortunately, veterans dealing with PTS are finding that cannabis is helping them address their trauma to begin growing from their past.  June is PTS Awareness Month, and we invite you to join us for a discussion about the ways in which cannabis can help to manage and alleviate common PTS symptoms like anxiety, depression and hypervigilance.

Topics

  • Anxiety, Depression and Hypervigilance
  • Being Present
  • Cannabis Application and Outcomes
    • Vaporizers

Speakers TBA
