CBD has become a hot topic for veterans. Many men and women that served in our military come home injured, wounded and in pain. Is there a way to help? Is there a natural way to help our veterans improve their quality of life?
To add to this, PTSD (posttraumatic stress disorder) affects 31% of Vietnam veterans according to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. If there was a legal product that could help this horrible disorder, would you or a loved one be willing to try it? CBD products for veterans are a growing interest.
CBD is an all-natural food additive. Hundreds of tests have been done on its effectiveness. Time and time again positive results come from these experiments but, it’s not FDA approved as of yet. CBD oil for injuries is a very interesting topic because CBD is known by its critics to be an anti-inflammatory supplement. Inflammation is the cause of arthritis, back pains, neck pains and all sorts of other health problems. If you or a loved one are suffering from pain due to inflammation, here is a testimonial from Lori Spier who started using CBD.
“I started taking CDB oil about three weeks ago and honestly did not expect much. I was amazed at how well it works and how great I feel! I have RA in both my joints and intestinal tract, so never have been able to tolerate the usual anti-inflammatories. Add in anxiety and migraines, and I was in pain 24/7. The very first day I took it, I was feeling that painful spasming and flexing in my skull that says a migraine is coming. Three drops and, within 10 minutes, it had stopped and did not come back. I can get out of bed easily now (instead of the usual very careful, slow and painful maneuvering I did before) and climb stairs with ease. I feel like I have my life back! Thank you so very much!” - Lori Spier
PTSD and CBD
As explained before, PTSD is a disorder that may happen after a terrible situation where physical harm was possible or happened to a person. Although PTSD is mostly known to be seen in war veterans, you can get it from robberies, accidents and other unfortunate events.
medlineplus.gov says, “You don't have to be physically hurt to get PTSD. You can get it after you see others—a friend, a family member, even a stranger—harmed or threatened.”
According to data collected from the U.S. Department of Veterans, 1 in 8 soldiers suffers from this condition.
estimates that PTSD afflicts:
- Almost 31 percent of Vietnam veterans
- As many as 10 percent of Gulf War (Desert Storm) veterans
- 11 percent of veterans of the war in Afghanistan
- 20 percent of Iraqi war veterans
When it comes to CBD, people are starting to turn into believers. Including those who have credited it for reducing their anxiety.
Larry Allen says, “I have been on Xanax for more than 20 years for anxiety plus panic attacks, then I came across an article about CBD oil. I was inspired by all the positive feedback so ordered some from Green Roads. Honestly, I was not expecting much but after the first dose within 20-30 minutes I suddenly realized that I was experiencing a calming feeling come over me. It was not a narcotic type of rush or euphoric rush but a very real natural type of feeling of well-being!
Since that initial dosage, I have maintained a very different mental state that I thought I would never feel again, not drugged but clear minded and a new found outlook on life. At 67 years of age, I have started life again!”.
