St Petersburg Veterans For Cannabis and CBD
Thank you to all the Veterans in St Petersburg! Many have expressed strong support for medical marijuana as a real treatment for medical conditions you face. The most common one we hear about is post traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD. PTSD is a spectrum anxiety disorder that cannabis and CBD helps treat. One local combat wounded marine stated, “Weed is a miracle for PTSD, sometimes I think I smoke a lot, then it occurred to me that I haven’t wanted to hit anyone in 6 months!”
Veterans in St Petersburg are heavily prescribed several antipsychotic, antidepressants, opioids, as well as many other prescription drugs. Several states have implemented Opioid replacement programs substituting medical marijuana in their place. Currently, veterans have to go out of the network to a civilian MedCard Doctor for a cannabis recommendation as the Veterans Administration is still reviewing data.
