Cannabis Could Treat Migraines
Migraines are uncomfortable, complex afflictions that many people experience on a regular basis. Contrary to the popular image migraines, migraines are more than just a headache. Migraines frequently include headaches, but other symptoms include nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light, sensitivity to sound, discoordination, and disturbed vision. Many people who experience migraines also experience migraine “hangovers” the day following their migraines, due to the intense physical toll that migraines take on the body. Treatments for migraines can include a variety of pharmaceuticals, some of which have nasty side effects or the potential for addiction. However, it may be possible for migraine sufferers to find some relief through cannabis, according to Leafly. Cannabis can be used to treat pain and nausea and has been used as an alternative to opioid painkillers by many. Perhaps cannabis could prove to work wonders for many people experiencing migraines that are looking for alternative treatments.
