PTSD

I believe that Tommy Chong's L A Amnesia definitely helps with PTSD symptoms. I wish I could hand it out to all surviving Vietnam Veterans. It has halted my rageful episodes, helps me sleep sounder and has mellowed my attitude. This is from using for 2 months. I like it very much. So does my boyhood friend who came to see me for New Year's. We got fucked up.

I have used sativas with very introspective trippy effects to interrupt and distract from memories and emotions that feed the flashback cycle... gotta be careful not to use one that's got heavy paranoia as it can cause even worse disassociation.

Heavy Indica can be useful for insomnia and to relax when your so tense that every thing seems to trigger... I get gnarly muscle spasms and use it to calm them down some.

Any herb seems to help with flashback dreams... doesn't stop them but I don't remember anything about any dreams so there's only all the sweat and a minute of panic when I wake.

I recommend a therapeutic approach as well as medication... it's really easy to start smoking constantly to avoid PTSD and eventually end up too stoned to function all the time or unable to get relief from marijuana any more. You don't want to abuse your medicine so much it stops working. I had enormous success with prolonged exposure therapy, it was unbelievably hard but after years of pain it was worth it. Took about 12 weeks of daily therapy that was HARD to do. But it worked. There ARE solutions to PTSD. Don't let it isolate you. That's the same tactic wolves use before the kill. Get some help to fight..

I get most of my seeds from ACE.

I couldn't tolerate any of the six or so meds they tried on me... u may wish to consider stopping herb to try them if you feel that it's not doing it for you anymore. Speculation was that cannabis was interacting with meds to ill effect. I think I just couldn't tolerate their tinkering in my brain with untried tools.

If your lungs are cooked try edibles?
If your sticking with cannabis really try and delineate recreation and medicine.. different strains maybe? A certain mindset or acknowledgement of purpose before smoking? Anything to make sure you feel like your helping yourself and not just "doing drugs" to get high cause fuck it...
Most people won't understand anyway but they aren't the ones dealing with it.

Lol I'm little ripped..., kinda babbling now. Good luck!

Makes good sense. Both have uplifting sativa effect with little raciness or paranoia and a "feel good" kinda vibe from what I understand.

I personally use Zamaldelica (a selected pheno with little paranoia and a LOT of trippyness) for intense flashback episodes and Golden Tiger for general daytime use or as a backup/alternate for flashbacks.

I have a ZamxGuatemala line I've been working that has an even happier twist to the high which is quite effective and will probably be my go to once I get it where I want it...

PTSD can have intense physical side effects too , I use BubbaKushxPCK as a relaxant and sleep aid. I'm about to run some night Nurse that I expect will be even more effective.

This makes me wonder if Dubi will find interest in developing a super trippy Zam style plant but with a more reliably kind vibe to it for ptsd patients... I keep wondering how to smooth out the "doom" without losing the intensity that is really the crux of why Zam distracts from flashback memories.

Guatemalan helped... it's even a little more trippy but with a cartoon goofy vibe replacing the Doom..
