CBD for Migraines

Many people struggle with migraines, the sudden onset of pain and inability to function for several hours can take a toll on anyone. Migraines are a recurring type of headache. They cause moderate to severe pain that is throbbing or pulsing. The pain is often on one side of your head.

You may also have other symptoms, such as nausea, weakness, light sensitivity, sound sensitivity. There are many factors that could be causing a migraine such as stress, anxiety, hormonal changes, bright or flashing lights, loud noises, strong smells, medications, overexertion, caffeine, and skipped meals. Researchers suggest that migraines might even be genetic. Statistics show that 12% of Americans get migraines.

They can affect anyone;however, womenare more susceptible to experiencing migraines. Common treatments for migraines include resting with your eyes closed in a quiet, darkened room and lots of fluids. Medications to help treat/prevent migraines could be prescribed however long-term use complications and side effects from the medication will cause people to take a more holistic alternative.

CBD has shown high success rates in relieving chronic pain, inflammation, anxiety, depression, and insomnia. The way CBD works in your body is it activates or inhibits other compounds in the endocannabinoid system. For example, CBD stops the body from absorbing anandamide, a compound associated with regulating pain. So, increased levels of anandamide in the bloodstream may reduce the amount of pain a person might experience.

CBD does not contain THC and is non-psychoactive meaning it will not get you high or cause you to test positive on a drug screening. CBD does not cause long term use complications which makes it a very safe and natural alternative.  Depending on the severity of pain we recommend our tinctures, salve creams, or our headache roller.
