"The German doctor I had in my twenties called migraines brain seizures. Just wondering about this."
Cannabis is a safe and effective treatment for migraines headaches and can also play a role in preventing them. I have spoken with countless migraine sufferers who attest to the benefits of cannabis in treating the pain, nausea and visual disturbances they suffer. Many theories attempt to explain the cause of migraines and generally blood vessels and neuronal structures are thought to play a key role. Cannabis acts to relax blood vesssels and overexcitation. Cannabis is also helpful in treating the side effects of many migraine medications. CBD is especially helpful as it can be used during the daytime without unwanted psychoactive effects.
