Migraines


What is Migraines and the symptoms?

Migraines are a neurological condition that can cause multiple symptoms. It’s frequently characterised by intense, debilitating headaches. Symptoms may include nausea, vomiting, difficulty speaking, numbness or tingling, and sensitivity to light and sound. Migraines often run in families and affect all ages.

Studies have shown that plant based endocannabinoid medicines can potentially improve Migraine symptoms. Endocannabinoid medicine receptors in your brain have tiny loops of protein that affect how you feel pain. Plant based medicine has natural compounds, cannabinoids, that studies have found change how the pain receptors respond and lower it[1]. A clinical trial investigated cannabis for both migraine prevention and relief. It found that medical cannabis was effective when administered as an acute treatment, reducing the intensity of pain in migraine patients by 43.5%[2].
