CBD oil and Migraines

Posted by Nate Hemmert on

Searing pain – like a hot knife through butter. Lights cutting through your brain like shards of glass, every noise like nails on a chalkboard... joined by a symphony of jackhammers behind it. All while your head feels like it might explode…or even implode, both of which sound like a wonderful reprieve at this point.

Does this sound familiar to you? Have you had the bad luck of experiencing such a horrible headache? Or maybe you know someone who suffers from migraines?

Triggered by a multitude of different factors, migraines impact not just the sufferer but their families too. Parenting, for example, is nearly impossible when suffering through a migraine. With the physical debilitations, let alone the additional mental stress, of a migraine, even the smallest daily tasks can become the largest mountain.

Whether it’s doing the laundry or, somehow someway, getting through the clash and clang of pots and pans to cook dinner, all you want to do is shove your head in the sand (or under a mound of blankets) and close the rest of the world out.

I’ve, thankfully, only had two in my life – and I have no idea what the triggers were – but, for many, this is an all too regular occurrence. For me, personally, noise makes no difference – you could be blaring some hardcore Norwegian death metal and I wouldn’t care less. Light, on the other hand, especially fluorescent light, is like endless showers of those shards mentioned above.

Most of the time, the only option is to suffer through it. Anyone that’s experienced a migraine will generally tell you that standard OTC pain relievers don’t do much. New research, however, right out of the University of Colorado, suggests that cannibidiol may actually play a larger role in migraines than once thought – not only as a possible treatment, but also a deficiency as one of the root causes.

While research is still in its early stages, and some of it relates to THC, the potential for CBD as a treatment is showing a lot of promise. The next time you feel a migraine coming on, consider one of DiscoverCBD’s concentrate dabs for a quick and instant CBD intake.

As a preventative measure, try a daily salve or balm. If you feel that you’ve already passed the point of a potential endocannabinoid deficiency, maybe consider a more concentrated helping of Active CBD.

  • Regarding Migraines
    Bad News; I have had migraines since I was 16. I am now 73. I have them to the point I pass out with the pain. They are completely random, some last 2 hours some last 30 days. Doctors have prescribed every opioid known to mankind from morphine to OxyContin, caffergot, epidural, specialized scalpel messages, diets etc. etc. None has worked, have suffered untold side effects

    Now For the good news: I Live in KC Missouri. Marijuana is illegal. Was in a severe migraine about 2 months ago. Had been going on for about 4 weeks. A friend said I want you to try this. Friend brought over a volcano, We vaporized a very small amount of Marijuana and in about 20 minutes for the first time in my adult life my headache was completely gone, no side affects, no lingering odor in the house.

    I have since been using 450mg once every other day of hemp CBD oil, taken under the tongue, because of not being able to get marijuana to vaporize. It is truly helping me to better enjoy the golden years. I certainly would recommend Legal Hemp Oil

    Incidentally; my wife is also taking the oil and is having success reliving her pain from fibromyalgia.
