Researchers at the British Columbia Centre for Substances Use found that those with PTSD who were using medical marijuana were 60-65 percent less likely to have major depressive episode or thoughts of suicide compared with those not using medical marijuana.

The study is the first national work on the effectiveness of cannabis for PTSD and will be presented at the annual conference of the Canadian Public Health Association in Montreal. 

Zach Walsh, a clinical psychologist at the University of British Columbia who is working with Tilray in Canada’s first randomized, controlled, trial evaluation of medical cannabis on PTSD, commented on the findings, “the new research supports the belief that cannabis can help bridge people with PTSD to that place where they’re ready to take the next step”, in recovery.
