A bad headache or even a migraine—something we all know too well. On a recent visit to the best online dispensary in Canada one of the associates on hand was suffering through one until the resident science expert suggested she help relieve her pain with a cannabis inhaler. Apparently, cannabis does wonders for this condition which prompted me to do some research, as who hasn’t had to suffer through a debilitating headache in recent memory, and it would be great if true relief was a close as the local cannabis shop.
Severe headaches and migraines are common among people with an estimated 14.7% of us globally suffering through the worst of them—headaches and migraines are the leading complaint of people visiting hospital outpatient and emergency departments. Typically, a severe throbbing pain localized to one side of the head, nausea, vomiting and sensitivity to light and sound are not uncommon as is dizziness, fatigue and irritability. Migraines can be set off by environmental or hormones with the occurrence being more common with women during their reproductive years. A family history of migraines also increases your chances of having them by up to 80%.
During their days working in at Washington State University the resident science expert at the best online dispensary in Canada participated in some research published in the Journal of Pain where they found that inhaled cannabis helped reduce the severity of headache and migraine pain by about 50%. Overuse headaches or withdrawal symptoms that were typically occurred with conventional migraine treatments were easier to address with cannabis making it a more effective treatment.
I asked those at some local cannabis shops, mail order marijuana dispensaries as well as those I buy weed online from who have surveyed their customers on their purchases and found inhalation is the most popular method of consumption for those who use cannabis to treat migraines. It is quick and easy and provides the fastest onset of all cannabis delivery methods—usually within a few minutes. Inhalers and vapourizers are the most popular as there is less preparing and fumbling involved, yet some suffers still prefer to joints, pipes or bongs. The resident science expert at the best online dispensary in Canada warned that through their research they did find that some suffers tended to over indulge in an attempt to stave off a potential headache or migraine, so users need to be mindful of their consumption. In these instances, users built up a tolerance to the effects of cannabis and a tolerance break was needed to mitigate this problem.
Research has shown that cannabis is effective for headache and migraine relief and that it may also help ease migraine symptoms or the possibility of one from starting and that inhalation, rather than edibles like the ones you get when you buy edibles online or concentrations, appear to be the most effect means of delivery. As with any type of medication, care must be taken to avoid overuse or else the effectiveness of the drug will lessen through time.
