Medical Marijuana and Migraines

In another edition of Medical Monday, we’re looking at how cannabis can help ease pain for migraine sufferers.

What is a migraine?
This is a kind of headache that has side effects like severe throbbing, nausea and disturbed vision. Migraines can be accompanied with pressure changes in the atmosphere, and are common for people living in Calgary, thanks to our chinooks.

How can medical marijuana help?
A recent study showed some very favourable research on how medical marijuana drastically reduces the frequency of migraines.

Migraine headache frequency decreased from 10.4 to 4.6 headaches per month with the use of medical marijuana. Positive effects were reported in 48 patients (39.7%). [National Library of Medicine]
