Event description

Description

This presentation aims to provide the audience with an overview of what is known about the relationship between cannabis use and common mental health conditions experienced by Veteran populations, with an emphasis on the relationship between cannabis use and PTSD. This presentation will include information on the prevalence rates of cannabis use and cannabis use disorder among Veterans, the relationship between cannabis use and common mental health symptoms (e.g., PTSD, anxiety, sleep), the overlap between PTSD symptoms and cannabis withdrawal, the impact of cannabis on PTSD treatment course and outcomes, and possible psychoeducation, assessment, and intervention options for individuals with cannabis use disorder. To provide context for this content, neurobiological findings and known health risks associated with cannabis use will be briefly reviewed.
