Fireworks Explosions Trigger Anxiety for Many Veterans
ATLANTA, GA / ACCESSWIRE / July 1, 2019 / Popular CBD Brands, a well-known CBD reviewer and consumer advocate, has updated its list of CBD sales and coupon codes in honor of America's biggest holiday.
In April 2019, the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine published the results of the first human study on the potential benefits of CBD as a treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder. In the study, 11 patients with PTSD were given CBD as an adjunct to their existing treatments and monitored by a psychiatrist over a period of eight weeks. Of the 11 patients, 10 reported measurable decreases in their PTSD symptoms by the end of the study period. Although further research is required, the study suggests a strong potential for CBD as a complementary treatment for one of the most notoriously untreatable psychiatric disorders.
For millions of people across the United States, the fourth of July is a joyous celebration of our nation's war for independence and a reminder of the sacrifices made by countless military heroes over the centuries to retain that independence. For many veterans, though, the loud explosions on July 4 can cause extreme anxiety by triggering memories of past conflicts. The recent study suggests that CBD may reduce anxiety for some without disrupting the effectiveness of existing psychiatric treatments.
Discussing reports that July 4 fireworks trigger PTSD symptoms for some veterans, Popular CBD Brands owner Tim McComsey said, "It breaks my heart that some of our nation's most important heroes can't fully share in the joy of the Independence Day fireworks celebrations. I hope that this recent study signals a turning point in the way we treat this silent and debilitating disease."
Popular CBD Brands has published an updated list of CBD sales for July 4th. The list includes discounts from standout CBD brands such as BioMD+ (50 percent discount on all products), MintedLeaf (25 percent discount) and Reef CBD (25 percent discount).
