|Author(s)||Bonn-Miller MO, Babson KA, Vandrey R.|
|Journal, Volume, Issue||Drug Alcohol Depend 2014;136:162-5.|
|Major outcome(s)||Patients with high PTSD scores were more likely to use cannabis to improve sleep, and for coping reasons more generally.|
|Indication||Posttraumatic stress disorder||Abstract|
BACKGROUND: The use of cannabis for medical purposes is proliferating in the U.S., and PTSD is an explicitly approved condition for accessing medical cannabis in 5 states. Prior research suggests that people with PTSD often use cannabis to help cope with their condition, and that doing so results in more frequent and problematic cannabis use patterns. Specific coping motivations, such as sleep improvement, among medical cannabis users, have not been examined. METHODS: The present study evaluated specific coping use motivations, frequency of cannabis and alcohol use, and mental health among a convenience sample of patients (N=170) at a medical cannabis dispensary in California.
