While we’re still learning about the effects of cannabinoids on migraines, there is some indication that cannabidiol (CBD) and other cannabinoids such as cannabinol (CBN) may have benefits for migraine sufferers.
What Are Migraines and How Are They Generally Treated?
Migraines are severe throbbing and pulsing sensations that can even come with other bodily symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, light and sound sensitivity, and more. While the cause of migraines is not well-understood, they impact 18% of women and 6% of men in the US and Europe and approximately 10% of the world’s population. Genetics and environmental factors may play a role in addition to imbalances in the brain and nerve pathways.
Triggers can include hormonal changes, stress, weather, sleep, and more. Because these factors can’t be controlled, avoiding migraines is tricky. Medications such as pain relievers, anti-nausea, blood pressure-lowering medications, antidepressants, anti-seizure drugs are usually prescribed to consistent migraine sufferers.
Can Cannabinoids Help Those Suffering From Migraines?
Cannabinoids like CBD and CBN have been found in some studies to help with pain relief especially in assisting in reducing inflammation. Because of this, they could be considered for assistance with migraines. While they have been found to help reduce inflammation, there are also studies that suggest cannabinoids offer additional benefits that can help migraine sufferers. Cannabinoids such as CBN and CBD have been found to help with anxiety which some believe may bring on stress-triggered migraines. Other studies show that CBD and CBN can both act as an anticonvulsant, similar to is one of the medications prescribed to many migraine patients.
With many potential benefits, cannabinoids may be the future for those struggling with migraines, although at this time cannabinoids are not yet FDA-approved to treat migraines.
