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 cannabidiol 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 concentrates 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.
