With more and more states passing medical marijuana laws, more scientific studies about how cannabis helps certain disorders have been completed. Most recently, an article was published in the US National Library of Medicine that compiles everything that is known about how cannabis relieves migraines.
The human body has cannabinoid receptors throughout the body. There are specific cannabinoid receptors in the head and neck that directly affect the brain’s systems that cause migraines. When you use cannabis products, it goes through these cannabinoid receptors and relieves the pain of migraines. The migraine will still be present, but it will be much less painful so you can work through your day.
