Can CBD Really Benefit Veterans?

When it comes to dealing with PTSD, one of the most affected groups is Veterans, and right now as many as 500,000 U.S. troops who served in wars over the past 13 years have been diagnosed…..that’s a staggering number. 

The main treatments for people with PTSD are counseling (known as “talk” therapy or psychotherapy), medications, or both. Although there are a number of treatment options for PTSD, and patient response to treatment varies, some treatments have been shown to have more benefits in general.

Typical antidepressant medications that are prescribed for PTSD can include Zoloft, Paxil, Prozac, and Effexor as they can alleviate sadness, anger, irritability, and emotional numbness and all lead to bigger issues. While it’s a huge win that these are causing relief for some unbearable, and sometime life threatening symptoms, what are the risks of being on a pill regimen for the unforeseeable future?

The VA published in 2016 that 66,000 veterans received treatment for opioid addiction, which can ultimately lead to health problems affecting major organs. Realistically, antidepressants are meant to be taken for nine months for a first episode of depression, and for a maximum of two years for those experiencing further episodes, but increasingly more people are staying on them for longer.

So what else is out there that is a safer, but effective option, and is it available for use? While even just one year ago, CBD oil was completely forbidden for use by the military for any service member in any of the service branches, as of this past summer, finally The House of Representatives approved an amendment to allow military service members to use products containing hemp and its derivatives—including CBD!

CBD can help military veterans cope with the folllowing:

  • PTSD
  • Learned Fear
  • Anxiety
  • Sleep/Insomnia
  • Nightmares
  • Final thoughts
  • Chronic, acute, and difficult to treat pain 

Now enter Jupiter CBD oil. Jupiter was launched in early 2020 (after over a year in development) by Tyler and Simon, just two guys with a passion for helping people while having a positive impact. From personal experience, they knew how serious stress can be and how it can hold back human potential and happiness.

Both CBD users, they were having a hard time finding a product with the high quality they were looking for (including being USDA certified organic), so they decided to create one from scratch. 

Now imagine their surprise when they started hearing from Veterans first hand on how Jupiter CBD was literally changing their lives! From getting off medication regimens to managing stress and anxiety better, this product was not only changing lives, but ultimately saving them…really let that sink in.

Here are a few testimonials from real veterans that have tried this product:
