THC and Migraines: Study Indicates Tetrahydrocannabinol Can Help
Author: Monterey Bud  09/11/2017 - 17:16:00

A recent study published in the European Journal of Pharmacology examined the use of cannabinoids as a treatment for migraines in female rats and found THC has the power to reduce migraine-like pain. 

Migraine headaches adversely affect more than 4 million Americans daily. Considered the sixth most disabling illness in the world, migraines that can last for 72 hours plague 12 percent of the U.S. population, according to the Migraine Research Foundation

But thanks in part to funding from the passage of I-502 in 2012 and motivation from a survey indicating 10.2 percent of those suffering from migraine headaches in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland self-medicate with marijuana, researchers at Washington State University (WSU) were given the opportunity to examine the possible correlation between marijuana and migraines. 

Humans have self-medicated with cannabis as a treatment for migraines throughout history.
