CBD To Relieve Migraine Symptoms & Headaches

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 its pain is usually excruciating. In fact, the pain can compel a patient to commit suicide. The fact that CBD is being proven effective in treating migraine is, therefore, good news to migraine sufferers.

Studies show that marijuana has been used to relieve headaches or 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 treatments by some physicians. And, several modern studies have pointed out that CBD can be used to relieve a migraine and/or relieve its symptoms. There are also stories of patients that have used CBD and resulted in successful migraine relief.

 

How CBD Works With Migraines

The presence of an endocannabinoid system in the human body explains the efficacy of CBD in treating 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 eliminates 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.

 

Using CBD To Possibly Relieve Migraine Headaches

Scientists suggest the use of CBD as a preventative treatment for a migraine. Using CBD on 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 vaporizer or added it to drinks and food, 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 or relief.

 

Why Use CBD For Migraine Relief?

CBD is a non-psychoactive product that has many medicinal properties. It’s an excellent pain reliever that provides natural healing effects without causing a high feeling that is associated with cannabis. And, though CBD has not been declared conventional in the treatment of a migraine headache, many patients have used it to relieve pain. Nevertheless, if you or a loved one is considering the use of CBD headache relief, it’s important that you talk to a physician about it first.
