Anxiety disorders, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are debilitating conditions that affect 1 in 10 persons worldwide, most of them are veterans. Current medication is inadequate. SSRIs, like prozac remain the drugs of choice for PTSD but with high rates of non-responders. Drug design focused on neurosteroids, such as Allo as a target for novel rapidly acting anxiolytics devoid of sedation, tolerance, and withdrawal liabilities. In addition, cannabinoids improve anxiety and stress by an unknown mechanism. We think that neurosteroids are involved. Our goal is to discover the mechanism of the anti-stress and anti-anxiety effects of cannabis and help to develop new treatments for therapeutic use.
