We get asked by patients about cannabis oil for migranes. A migraine is a severe headache that can cause severe throbbing pain or a pulsing sensation, usually on just one side of the head. It’s often accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and extreme sensitivity to light and sound. Migraine attacks can cause significant pain for only hours or a few days and can be so severe that the pain is disabling. Warning symptoms such as aura may occur before or with the headache. These can include flashes of light, blind spots, or tingling on one side of the face or in your arm or leg.
For some people, a warning symptom known as an aura occurs before or with the headache. An aura can include visual disturbances, such as flashes of light or blind spots, or other disturbances, such as tingling on one side of the face or in an arm or leg and difficulty speaking.
Medications can help prevent some migraines and make them less painful. The right medicines, combined with self-help remedies and lifestyle changes, might help.
How Can Cannabis Oil Benefit Migraines?
Take CBD to reduce this process happening in your body and to reduce the pain of the migraine as CBD immediately treats the inflammation. THC-infused cannabis oil is a great treatment for what is known as excitotoxicity. This is caused by an accumulation of glutamate, a neurotransmitter that helps us to think. Glutamate is toxic when there is too much of it and you then get a migraine. CBD and THC can both treat migraines by increasing the level of serotonin in your brain. Serotonin is called the happy chemical and also helps combat depression. Cannabis oils rich in CBD and THC also block receptors that control nausea and vomiting, other migraine-associated symptoms. Patients who take conventional anti-inflammatories are doing untold damage to their livers and kidneys. But with cannabis oil there are no side effects, only effective relief.
Cannabis Therapy suggested treatment guidelines:
Panacea THC/CBD tincture and the patient can take 5 drops twice daily (morning and night)
