PTSD Detachment- Just Add CBD

PTSD Detachment- Just Add CBD

Emma Knox

     Some days, you hate everybody. I know sometimes I do, and I don’t even have PTSD. They don’t understand you, they’re pests, roaches, mosquitos, they’re intimidating, they don’t give a shit about you so you don’t give a shit about them, they’re looking at you funny, they’re judging you, they know, they hate you and you hate them too. So you stay home. You take alleyways and back roads. You do everything you can to avoid people. But it just makes your PTSD, and everything else, worse.

     Let’s try liquid courage! Powdered courage! Courage in a pill! In a brownie! In Jimmy Stewart inspiration! None of it works. (Duh.) People won’t get easier to handle once you’re drunk- you’ll just get harder to handle. The same goes for when you’re high, etc. And there’s a difference between waking up on the wrong side of the bed VS feeling detached from everyone else on the planet. Your feelings make sense and they won’t just disappear after watching It’s a Wonderful Life. They need a substantial solution. You do.

     Although it may seem appealing to stay at home all day and watch TV, it won’t last. You know that. Netflix is only fun for so long, as are Hulu, Disney Plus, Amazon Prime, the works. You’ll run out of books to read. All the music will start to sound the same. Nothing is fun forever. You need to go places, do things, see people… at least occasionally. But you can’t do that if your primary goal is Avoid People at All Costs. Which it likely is. What you need, dear reader, is something that’ll help you feel better around people. Hate them less.

     I’m here to support you and lift you up. So I’m recommending CBD. It’s known widely for its ability to reduce anxiety, and what causes avoidance more than anxiety? (Nothing.) CBD can put you in a better headspace, quiet your uglier thoughts, keep you grounded and relaxed, and give you a better sense of attachment with people and the world around you. It does everything you need… even if you don’t realize you need it… without hurting you. Even with PTSD, you don’t have to feel far away. You don’t have to be far away. You can rejoin society (without sneering, or wanting to sneer, at every passerby). NobleCanni is the helping hand. All you need is CBD. Call it I Like You Juice.
