I need a cbd oil for chronic migraines. I have had chronic migraines for over 30 yrs. And tried everything. My last resort is botox for migraines and I'm scared to do that because of side effects. So will cbd oil help me?

There are many different types and brands of CBD oil to pick from, and your final choice will be determined by your personal needs and how you plan to utilize CBD.
Some of the questions you’ll want to ask yourself are:
How many milligrams of CBD oil will I need? Do I want something flavored or unflavored? Will I be using CBD oil at home, on the go, or both? What’s my main consideration – strength or price?
At the right dosage, CBD has been shown to significantly help with anxiety, pain, and inflammation (and potentially many other problems as well). An appropriately high dosage of CBD will give you all the desired effects you need, and there is really no risk of overdose as CBD is harmless even in high concentrations. However, most people will feel little effect if they take too low a dosage, effectively wasting CBD’s powerful beneficial properties.
With the above in mind, the importance of correct CBD dosage becomes obvious. People with different requirements and different metabolisms will need accordingly different CBD dosages to experience CBD’s positive effects, and dosages can vary dramatically because there is no one-size-fits-all “typical CBD dosage.” While there is no such thing as “too much CBD,” you can in fact take too little to feel a difference.
Dosage can range anywhere from 2mg to 3mg, up to 100mg or even 200mg on the super-high end. (Remember, you cannot overdose and there are no reported side effects from taking high concentrations of CBD.) Let’s see how much CBD the most popular CBD oil products contain and how you can adjust your dosage (or not) with them.
Most people only need about 2mg to 3mg per day to start feeling a difference. Yet people with stronger needs may need to start at 2mg to 3mg and work their way up until they find the right dose for their body.
