Medical Marijuana for Migraines

For patients who frequently get migraines, marijuana use has become an increasingly sought-after treatment for preventing the horrible pain that comes with a migraine before it even happens or to ease the symptoms of a migraine as it starts. A migraine is a severe headache that typically affects one side of your head but can also impact both sides. It’s accompanied by throbbing and pulsing sensations that are extremely unpleasant and can inhibit your ability to be productive. In some intense cases, migraines can put someone out of commission for the entirety of the duration of a migraine, which fluctuates from person to person. On average, migraines can last from a few hours to multiple days. 

When using medical cannabis for migraines, some patients have found that medical marijuana can lessen the overpowering nausea that follows the onslaught of a migraine. Cannabis use may also help relieve stress which, for some people, is one of the many triggers that bring about migraines. Cannabis studies for patients with recurring migraines have shown that consuming or smoking medical marijuana may help prevent migraines. In most cases, cannabis helps lessen the pain associated with migraines brought on by bright lights, loud noises, strong smells, lack of sleep, and stress. 

For patients who seek to treat symptoms associated with their migraines, cannabis hybrid strains with high THC and low CBD potency are most commonly used to reduce inflammation and treat nausea. Some of our EarthMed patients find that indica-dominant strains help relieve the discomfort from migraines due to the drowsiness and heavy feeling that can come with indica strains. 

If you are interested in learning more about using medical marijuana for migraines, the state of Illinois has approved migraines as a qualifying medical condition whereby a person who obtains a medical marijuana card can receive medical cannabis from a dispensary for treatment of their condition. 

**Always check with your doctor before using medical marijuana for migraines to prevent these severe headaches and treat the symptoms associated with them. This is not medical advice for patients who regularly succumb to migraines.
