Who are the Arizona Disabled Veterans?
The Arizona Disabled Veterans is the Arizona chapter for the Disabled Veterans of America and they have one main goal, to help our Veterans. Every day there are 22 American veterans who die from suicide. Many veterans suffer from PTSD and are unable to get the medical help they need. Some have turned to prescription medication, others have tried counseling and cannabis.
Can Cannabis Help our Veterans?
More information is coming out today, a recently published article in Psychology Today, reveals a study that used cannabis to alleviate “haunting nightmares” for Veterans suffering from PTSD. Cannabis has also been shown to help with depression, anxiety, insomnia, and more. We hope to encourage our veterans to try cannabis and transition from opioids and other prescription medication that have shown only harmful results.
