Medical Cannabis, Headaches, and Migraines

Cannabis has been used for centuries for medical and recreational purposes, with research demonstrating its potential benefits for symptom management in conditions such as cancer, chronic pain, headaches, migraines, and psychological disorders. Active ingredients such as THC, CBD, flavonoids, and terpenes work together to alleviate symptoms by targeting the endocannabinoid system. However, research on medical cannabis within the United States is limited due to its schedule one drug classification. Despite this, anecdotal studies suggest a positive relationship between cannabis use and migraine frequency.

This review aims to examine the validity of medical cannabis as an alternative therapy for migraine management, using thorough screening processes to select 34 relevant articles. The study shows that medical cannabis can decrease migraine duration and frequency, as well as relieve headaches of unknown origin. This convenient and effective therapy may offer hope for patients suffering from migraines and related conditions.

Medical Marijuana

Safe & Legal

Throughout my career, I have been dedicated to breaking conventions and helping those in need. My passion for medicine began during my time working in refugee camps in Thailand, and since then, I have made it my mission to provide care and support to those who need it most.

As a pioneer in the field of ophthalmology, I have made numerous contributions and innovations in the field of corneal transplantation and laser surgery.  I am comfortable challenging conventions.

I have seen firsthand the positive impact medical marijuana can have on patients struggling with pain and anxiety. 

My experiences have shown me that medical marijuana can offer significant benefits with minimal side effects, providing patients with an alternative to traditional pharmaceutical medications. Despite its potential, the government’s stance on marijuana is outdated and in need of revision. 

Through my observations, I have seen prescription rates for pain, stress, insomnia, anxiety to name just a few, drastically decrease among patients who have obtained a medical marijuana card, and I believe that this is a testament to its effectiveness.
