Cannabis for the Prophylactic Treatment of Migraine

This study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of cannabis for the treatment of chronic migraine headaches. Study subjects will be randomized to one of three groups: lower dose CBD, higher dose CBD or placebo.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Chronic Migraine Drug: CBD 100 mg OD Drug: CBD 200 mg OD Drug: Placebo Phase 2

Migraine is a neurological disorder characterized by recurrent attacks of moderate to severe headache, often accompanied by sensory sensitivity and nausea. Migraine can be very disabling and often interferes with social and occupational functioning.

Given the high prevalence of migraine and the significant burden it places on the individual and society, it is an important condition to study and manage optimally. This is especially true because current migraine treatments often result in only marginal improvement and are frequently associated with intolerable side effects. For this reason, there is a need for new migraine treatments. The endocannabinoid system is an important potential treatment target as it is involved in pain processing and overlaps with some mechanisms of migraine pathophysiology.

Cannabis was legalized in Canada on October 17th, 2018. As a result, the consumption of cannabis products for migraine treatment may increase. However, at this time there is limited evidence for the safety and efficacy of cannabis for the treatment of migraine. As a result, there is a need for further study and research in this area. Thus, we propose a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial to study cannabis (specifically cannabidiol) as a preventative therapy for patients with chronic migraine.

CBD, Anyone tried it??

Just wondering if anyone has tried CBD as a treatment for headaches/migraines and whether or not it has worked, or have there been any adverse side effects??

I’m a sufferer of over 40 years and nothing works for me apart from the triptans. I am on a strict gluten & dairy free diet at the moment and I have noticed a slight decrease, but not sure if it’s the diet or just a phase.

I have read about CBD and some swear by it, I also have cervical spondylosis which sometimes causes the migraines and vice versa and was hoping it may help with that aswell??

BEMER is some sort of electrical stimulation as far as I am aware, very expensive.

I have ordered some CBD and am hoping it works for me, it’s my last chance.

Thanks for your feedback

THE BEMER IS A VASCULAR THERAPY DEVICE THAT INCREASES OXYGEN AND NUTRIENTS AND FLUSHES OUT WAST IN YOUR BODY FASTER IT ALSO CLEANSES ALL THE TRILLIONS IF CELLS IN YOUR BODY . THATS WHY THERE IS SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE THAT IT CAN ACTUALLY HELP IF NOT GET RID OF MIGRAINES. YES IT IS QUITE SPENDY, BUT WHAT IS YOUR OVERALL HEALTH WORTH. FOR ME I WAS ABLE TO GET MY LIFE BACK

i have been on cbd capsules for a month now, i have trigeminal neuralgia and hemicrania continua on my right side. i was on numerous medication but wasnt getting any relief, it was also causing horrendous side effects i was feeling so ill. i also take a supplement of Magnesium and a B Vitamin. . I feel more confident taking the natural route than drugs, it isnt a quick fix it will take a while but i do feel better and more in control. cbd isnt for everyone my sister tried it for her back pain and said she felt nauseous, i have to admit so did i but if you can persist you will start to feel the benefit. i tried the actual oil under the tongue but couldnt get on with the taste so went for the capsules, I order from a company in Switzerland called cibdol and they are shipped from Holland. i do feel the combination of the Magnesium and the B complex as well is important.

wishing you well

Thanks for your reply Angela,

I tried magnesium with vit B, but it didn’t help me like everything else I try. This is why I thought the CBD might be helpful.

I have bought the drops, not started using them yet so can’t comment on the taste, but we’ll see how I go and hopefully they’ll be no side effects, I have to start having some luck.

I’ve tried straight CBD oil, and CBD oil with some THC in it. Went on a long trial of it for over 6 months. At first, there seemed to be a minor prevention of migraines, but over time that improvement went away, so I kept increasing the CBD dosage. This only resulted in depression, a known problem with cannabis. The “experts” will say that depression only occurs with cannabis that has some THC content, but I learned that straight CBD in increasing doses also causes it. So, I discontinued using it.
