via Cannabis and PTSD — Taming Nightmares – Ryan D Miller – Medium

Nightmares are one of the most common manifestations of previous traumatic stress. A study by the National Center for PTSD showed that 52% of Vietnam combat veterans with PTSD regularly experience nightmares as a primary symptom of their post-traumatic stress. New research, which includes veterans of our most recent (and longest) wars, indicates a much higher rate, with anywhere from 71% to 96% of PTSD sufferers experiencing nightmares, compared to only around 5% for the general population.
