The majority of PTSD patients also used conventional medications, prescribed by their treating physicians. The cannabis daily dosage was about 2-3 grams per day. In most cases a significant improvement in quality of life and pain, with some positive changes in severity of posttraumatic stress disorder was observed. The patients reported a discontinuation or lowering of the dosage of pain killers and sedatives. The majority of improved PTSD patients belonged to groups with either additional pain and/or depression. Researchers concluded that "results show good tolerability and other benefits (...) particularly, in the patients with either pain and/or depression comorbidity."
