What Is CBD?
CBD is one of the byproducts found in hemp and cannabis plants. Unlike THC, CBD does not cause the high generally associated with cannabis use. CBD acts on the ECS, which is a biological system that affects the regulation of several physiological and cognitive functions.
We’ve all been there suffering from a terrible migraine/headaches. It’s handy to know with CBD you can find pain relief with the powerful phytonutrient compounds. CBD interacts with the ECS to promote therapeutic health benefits. Migraines at times can be so intense you have to seek refuge in a dark, quiet room. For those of you who have chronic migraines, we know all too well that the prescription medication options aren’t great. You have to take them at the start of the migraine for them to work, and they often leave you so drowsy that you may end up falling asleep anyways!
Recent studies have shown CBD to be effective for a number of medical conditions, including migraines. With ongoing research were still investigating the exact way which CBD is able to help alleviate migraine symptoms. Recent clinical trials showed there’s a group of nerves and blood vessels in the brain called the ‘trigeminovascular system’, or TVGS, which is thought to play a role in the creation of migraines.
Activation of the TVGS leads to increased sensitivity of some nerve cells in the brain - which then leads to increased pain signals - which in turn increases TVGS activity - creating a positive feedback loop - that keeps you stuck in the grips of a migraine. Terrible news we know. CBD acts on a part of the TVGS, helping to stabilize it and decrease its activity, thereby reducing the migraine symptoms. What’s great about CBD oil is that it can be taken at any point in a migraine, not just at the onset, and still be effective.
CBD Health Benefits
People with migraines have reported that CBD has helped decrease pain from either managing or alleviated their symptoms completely. In addition, taking CBD on a daily basis can reduce the frequency, duration and severity of migraines for those who are regular migraine sufferers. This is thought to be due to the fact that those who suffer from conditions that feature an enhanced pain response, like migraine, have often been found to have an endocannabinoid deficiency.
We agree CBD doses vary based on your size, your genetic makeup, how well your body absorbs CBD and lastly your metabolism. You should really get into the habit of starting to take a certain amount of CBD daily. Also, record how much CBD you’ve taken then increase incrementally until you notice your migraines improving.
Top Tip: It’s helpful to take a certain dose of CBD oil daily for prevention and then you may need to take a slightly higher dose to get rid of a migraine once it has started.
