The purpose of this research study is to determine the cannabinoid composition of the medical marijuana that patients with PTSD feel is beneficial, and the cannabinoids present in the blood stream of these subjects. The goal is to recruit individuals with PTSD that use medical marijuana and obtain a sample of their prescription. The chemical composition of their marijuana samples will be analyzed to understand the profile of cannabinoids associated with the therapeutic effects of medial cannabis consumed by this ground of PTSD patients. The information gathered from this study may lead to better treatment options for PTSD patients in the future.
