Medical marijuana for migraine: Pot shown to reduce frequency of migraines

Originally posted in Tech Times by Rhodi Lee

Migraine sufferers have long been turning to marijuana to alleviate their pain but findings of a new study have finally proved the efficacy of using cannabis to treat the condition.

For the new study published in the journal Pharmacotherapy this week, researchers saw a significant reduction in the frequency of migraine headaches among individuals who were treated with medical marijuana.

The researchers found that in migraine patients who used medical marijuana, the occurrence of migraines dropped from 10.4 to 4.6 percent a month, which is considered statistically and clinically significant. They also discovered that inhaling marijuana appears to be the most ideal way to treat headaches because the effects occur sooner compared with using edibles.
