CBD and Migraine Relief
More than 38 million people in the United States have migraines. Some migraine studies estimate that 4 million US citizens have chronic migraines,15 or more migraines per month.
Ninety percent of sufferers cannot function during an attack. According to The American Migraine Foundation (www.americanmigrainefoundation.org), there are ten common triggers for migraines. Included in the triggers are stress, anxiety, an irregular sleep schedule, and medication overuse which causes rebound headaches.
Amazingly, CBD can reduce triggers, allowing migraine sufferers a new, natural way of releiving and lessening these debilitating headaches.
Although more specific research is needed, CBD absolutely should be used by those with migraines. Project CBD (www.projectcbd.org) examined hundreds of peer-reviewed scientific journal articles. They found that three, out of the five top conditions that CBD helps are sleep problems, anxiety, and chronic pain.
Harvard studied CBD and the research is the same (www.health harvard.edu). According to Harvard research, “CBD is commonly used to address anxiety, and for patients who suffer through the misery of insomnia, studies suggest that CBD may help with both falling asleep and staying asleep.”
Harvard scientists also found CBD is a viable option for treating chronic pain. The article states, “CBD inhibits inflammatory and neuropathic pain, two of the most difficult types of chronic pain to treat.”
Sleep problems, anxiety, and chronic pain are listed as the most common triggers The American Migraine Foundation found that causes migraines.
If migraine sufferers use CBD daily, triggers will be reduced meaning fewer headaches and pain. CBD will reduce the number of prescription medications for migraines which cause horrible side effects and rebound headaches. It’s a no brainer. Migraine sufferers, go get some CBD.
