Several friends are using CBD oil for a variety of reasons, so I decided to try it. I looked online and found all the different products and the wide array of doses and composition profoundly confusing, so I found a local storefront to go to for assistance and advice. That led me to the Thousand Oaks location of Your SoCal CBD store and Lauren Lerch. When I met Lauren and heard her story, I realized it was kismet.
Lauren suffered from PTSD from the Route 91 massacre and discovered CBD oil helped her with PTSD. See her full story on 28. I had heard from several friends who survived that event who were also suffering, followed by many survivors of Borderline. Finding Lauren and sharing her story with our community is my honor; it is my hope that someone will find healing.
She is also starting community groups lead by a local therapist to help others going through PTSD. If you are interested in participating, please call 805.446.4223.
Unfortunately, mass shootings continue and trigger PTSD reactions. Each person will process the situation differently, react to it differently and move through it with the coping skills that they have. It is not unusual to need more support, including professional help.
Wishing you hope and healing.
