Can CBD help with migraines and headaches?
People have used cannabis for thousands of years to treat headaches and migraines. There is evidence that CBD oil can reduce inflammation and pain.
How can CBD help with migraines and headaches?
Medical experts consider the pain from a migraine is the result of intense stimulation to sensory nerve and response to inflammatory agents which are released when a migraine occurs. This explains why powerful analgesic and anti-inflammatory agents, such as CBD oil, may be effective in the treatment of migraines
Properties of CBD Oil That Relieve Migraine include;
Potent analgesic (pain-relieving) properties.
Powerful anti-inflammatory effects.
According to a study published in Frontiers in Pharmacy, there are many experts who advocate for the use of CBD oil for migraines.
“Cannabinoids due to their anticonvulsive, analgesic, antiemetic, and anti-inflammatory effects present a promising class of compounds for both acute and prophylactic treatment of migraine pain,” explained lead study author Pinja Leimuranta, of the University of Eastern Finland.
Although the researchers say that we are not completely there yet, they add that CBD oil can “absolutely help relieve some symptoms related to migraines.”
While few clinical research studies have examined the use of CBD to treat migraines, a 2016 study, published in Pharmacotherapy, found that the frequency of migraines was reduced from nearly 10 per month to only approximately four per month
Research presented in 2017 at the Congress of the European Academy of Neurology showed that cannabinoids might help prevent migraines as well as easing the pain of migraine headache.
Additionally, a 2017 review of cannabis treatment for headaches outlined existing research, patient surveys, and case reports showing the efficacy of cannabis for migraine and other headache disorders.
Regularly taking a quality CBD oil could help migraine sufferers.
