Suicide among America's service members and veterans is a public health crisis.

Since 2010, more than 65,000 veterans have died by suicide—a number greater than the combined US combat deaths in the Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan wars.

Veterans suffering with post-traumatic stress are 58% more vulnerable than their peers to suicidal mortality within one year of their diagnosis. But medical cannabis is showing remarkable efficacy for chronic, treatment-resistant PTSD among America's returning heroes.

An FDA-regulated study has found cannabis beneficial for PTSD treatment in vets.

In a peer-reviewed, placebo-controlled, double-blind study published March 2021, veterans suffering from treatment-resistant PTSD who used medical cannabis showed significant improvement in symptoms in just three weeks of treatment.

For the roughly 13 percent of US veterans suffering from PTSD, clinical cannabis trials are providing new hope for healing.
