New Study Suggest CBD + THC Is Better For Migraine Relief

Migraine is a type of headache that usually causes throbbing pain on one side of the head.  Migraines can last for hours or in severe cases, a few days.  Migraine causes vomiting, nausea and people that are affected with migraines can become very sensitive to bright light and sound.  People with chronic migraines can lose the ability to carry normal daily activities.

A new study shows that using CBD and THC together for treatment of acute Migraine headaches is more effective than just either of the cannabinoids alone.  Using CBD oil products like Mellow Full Spectrum 1,800 mg CBD Oil from Mellow Organic is ideal for migraine as we all know that migraine is not just a “regular" headache.  You would need an extra strong potent CBD to deal with such an impactful headache to stop the never ending throbbing in your head.  The next time you meet someone who is experiencing migraine attacks, please be gentle and extra  kind to them.

Migraine affects about 10% of the global population.  Some people may have up to 15 migraine episodes a month.  Some even more than that and when you have more than 15 episodic migraine attacks we call it chronic migraine.  In most cases treatment for migraines would include taking NSAID painkillers.  Cannabis like THC and CBD are now regarded as a gold standard alternative treatment for treating and managing migraine.  We know that cannabis does have far fewer side effects than traditional painkillers do, but using too much of cannabis like marijuana can not only cause you to feel high, but it can lead to dependence and addiction of marijuana.  On the other hand using CBD may be more ideal as CBD is the non-psychoactive component of the cannabis plant.  It will not cause intoxication and is not habit forming.  When you use CBD oil products that contain high potency CBD with less than 0.3% THC and other cannabinoids like CBG, CBN, CBC, CBDa, THCa and terpenes will collectively work together to give a better result in treating and managing pain.  We call this the “entourage effect" and can only be found on full spectrum CBD products.  

The study was conducted by University of California which included four test samples in vaporize forms of cannabis and placebo that were given out at random.  It included:

  • 6% dominant THC 

  • 11% dominant CBD

  • 6% THC plus 11% CBD

  • Placebo cannabis flower

The results showed that the combination of THC and CBD was far more than either cannabinoids alone or placebo.  Together they were able to relieve pain, manage migraine headaches and control symptoms that come with migraines like nausea, phonophobia and photophobia (a state of being sensitive or fear of light and sound which is normal when it comes to migraine) after consuming the cannabis after 2 hours.  It helps participants to be free from pain within 24 hours and takes away migraine-related symptoms between 24 to 48 hours. 

The researchers did not report any side effects from both THC and CBD, but more research is needed for the future to have better understanding on how cannabinoids like CBD and THC can help with migraines and pain in general.
