Using CBD To Relieve Migraine

Any migraine sufferer can attest to the truth that once this condition gets beyond its earliest stages, over the counter medication can’t stop it. Additionally, migraine is not a normal headache because the pain is usually excruciating. In fact, the pain has even compelled some patients to commit suicide. As sad as that fact is, the fact that CBD is being proven effective in improving the symptoms of a migraine is therefore good news to migraine sufferers.

Studies show that marijuana has been used to relieve headaches and migraines for more than a hundred years. There are also cases when cannabis has been used in the ancient Chinese medical context. In the 1800s and beginning of the 1900s, medical marijuana was preferred over other therapeutic aids by some physicians. Several modern studies have also pointed out that CBD may help with a migraine and/or relieve the symptoms. There are also stories of patients that have used CBD with the result of successful migraine relief.

Studies On CBD Benefits For Migraines

Medical Study #1 

“Although the exact ECS-dependent mechanisms underlying migraine are not fully understood, the available results strongly suggest that activation of ECS could represent a promising therapeutical tool for reducing both the physiological and inflammatory components of pain that are likely involved in migraine attacks.” – https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20353780

Medical Study #2

“The literature suggests that the medicinal use of cannabis may have a therapeutic role for a multitude of severe conditions, particularly chronic pain disorders including headache. Supporting literature suggests a role for medicinal cannabis and cannabinoids in several types of headache disorders including migraine and cluster headache…” – https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26015168

Can CBD Relieve Even The Worst Types of Headaches?

The presence of an endocannabinoid system in the human body explains the efficacy of CBD in improving the symptoms of a migraine. The endocannabinoid system comprises of cannabinoid receptors and cannabinoids that the body produces naturally. When the natural cannabinoids bind to the cannabinoid receptors, they block pain while providing system-wide events that eliminate factors that cause a migraine. CBD from the hemp plant acts like the natural body cannabinoids. Thus, CBD essentially inhibits neurotransmission of pain signals while reducing the inflammatory response that is associated with a migraine.

Scientists suggest the use of CBD as a preventative therapeutic aid for a migraine. Using CBD on a daily basis has been proven effective in relieving migraine in some people. Some of the CBD products that have been used to relieve a migraine include CBD oil, CBD cream, and CBD edibles. People have used CBD by adding it to food and drinks, or even applied it under their tongue to relieve a migraine. Most people recommend CBD wax and CBD oil that can be inhaled or vaporized to provide a more immediate effect for relief.

Things To Consider Before Taking CBD

CBD is a non-psychoactive product that has many medicinal properties. It’s an excellent pain reliever that provides natural healing effects without causing the high feeling that is associated with cannabis. Though CBD has not yet been declared a conventional medicine in the therapeutic aid of a migraine headaches, many patients have used it to relieve pain. Nevertheless, if you or a loved one are considering taking CBD as a dietary supplement for headaches or migraine relief, we highly recommend that you speak with your physician about it first.
