UPDATE: NJ Medical Marijuana Changes

UPDATE: NJ Medical Marijuana Changes

Post-traumatic stress disorder is being addressed in a bill being considered for New Jersey’s medical marijuana program.

Executive Director of the Coalition for Medical Marijuana in New Jersey Ken Wolski says PTSD is not managed well by traditional pharmaceuticals.

“[We] have long hoped that PTSD would be the first condition that would be added to qualify for marijuana therapy in New Jersey,” Wolski said, according to The Daily Chronic. “Twenty-two veterans commit suicide every day here in the U.S.”

Research from Israel, has learned that THC, the active ingredient in marijuana, is “safe and well tolerated by patients with chronic PTSD.” Researchers from Jerusalem said last year, according to The Daily Chronic,  “The intervention caused a statistically significant improvement in global symptom severity, sleep quality, frequency of nightmares, and PTSD hyperarousal symptoms.”
