Magic Pill in the form of a silver bullet to Migraines & Headaches do exist, and it comes in the form of CBD, with studies claiming it has 86% efficacy.
So here I lay on my bed trying to work out whether I have covid, the flu, or some debilitating cold. I hope to almighty Odin; it’s not covid because I’ve managed to dodge it for this long. Long-Covid is real.
My noggin is throbbing in pain – I couldn’t even listen to any sound on my phone or mac. Moving my head even hurts. It sucks.
I am listless, like the expired lithium battery leaking in your toolbox.
My meat bag creaks all over like a century-old cabinet drawer.
There’s a bottle of CBD oil sitting on my bedside cabinet.
At this point – I am willing to try anything & to be honest – I feel bloody miserable. This bug is certainly giving my immune system a run for its money!
Half a milligram & 20MG dosage later, the throbbing head pain dissipates. I can’t believe it; CBD works! I take more, and a good dosage is around 300MG of CBD.
Ok, now onto the boring bit:
So apparently, with a quick google, I found an article by Forbes with a study made by a supplement company that reported 86% of the test subjects in a 30-day study said that CBD alleviated their chronic migraines. The research was to gauge how migraines impact day to day functional capacity of test subjects – an interesting study worth a read.
It seems there’s speckled from armchair observation (I am in no way medically educated), the studies out there that would indicate those suffering periodic migraines would benefit more from consuming cannabinoids than pharmaceutical medication.
It should also be noted this conclusion about CBD and its efficacy for head pain is yet to be peer-reviewed by the science-medical body, so just take silver bullet to headaches & migraines as you may with a grain of salt or two.
The study concluded that CBD contains medicinal/pharmacological properties even though the conclusion is contradicted by the American FDA clowns – strongly contrary to a growing global body of health physicians directly dealing with cannabis concluding otherwise. But what would other countries, aside from the FDA, know right? Right?
So the consensus of the data reveals a 33% reduction in those suffering chronic migraines varying from 15 to 30 days.
So what does that mean?
It means it’s worth looking into if you fall into two categories (one being you get headaches, two, being medically informed) and giving it a go (with approval of your health physician) and trying it in incremental doses of 5MG every hour and see how your body responds to the intake of CBD.
Could this also mean that cannabis high in CBD help that throbbing head pain?
And at the end of the day, for anything health-related, please learn to listen to your body first and foremost – and always act sensibly & do your due diligence regarding medication.
