Diagnosed with chronic migraines for the last 12 years. Always had upwards of 20 migraines per month and went years with a headache pretty well 24/7. Tried it all, pain killers, Botox, feverfew, magnesium etc and finally I have relief.
Wish I had tried it years ago. I go like 5-7 days without a migraine now.
I've been suffering from migraines for most of my adult life, but I just discovered this subreddit! I know my main triggers (dehydration, sun, wine, stress) but I still get the occasional migraine for now reason. I'd love to have CBD on hand because honestly medications just don't work. Is CBD legal? Can I order it online or do I need to get it from a doctor?
I buy a bottle for about 70$ and it lasts me about a month and two weeks. I take 25ml under my tongue. The brand is called Nu. If you're in canada i can send you some websites.
Been taking CBD oil daily and my migraines have decreased significantly without any side effects. It's also helped my nausea.
For those in the group that use CBD – what brand/type would you recommend for a migraineur?
Thanks u/Kalayna – I’ve thumbed through the blog and I see where users have noted that they’ve “started” taking specific CBD. I am more curious as to if anyone has found a particular strain that works better for migraines than another strain. My understanding is that, as with MJ, different strains produce different effects. I was trying to see what has been the MOST helpful to users.
I tried Restore – Balance from Amazon to try to get some relief from a broken finger when they cut me off from my pain medication. When I had migraines, it didn't really help at all. And the flavor is goddamn disgusting. It tastes like a box full of rocks or some failed tacos. Doesn't taste at all like you'd think hemp would.
There are tons of people asking the same question you have.
I am considering adding CBD oil for my migraine prevention regimen. I do not want anything that has THC in it, as I live in NC and THC is still illegal.
At Axon Relief we recently began selling CBD for migraines and collecting customer results using the HIT-6 survey which is a clinically validated tool to measure the impact of a persons headache.
I've used CBD oil and it helps relieve symptoms like the pressure and light sensitivity but doesn't take care of the pain that comes with it. Recently got prescribed Nortriptyline for my daily headaches and it also lessened my severity of migraines. I usually have 100% CBD edibles with a joint or an OTC acetaminophen.
I used an isolate for a few months a couple of years ago. Dropped the frequency considerably, and took away 90% of my pain. But used it twice daily, sublingually, as a preventative. Cost was prohibitive, so stopped.
I've used it, both the full spectrum and the isolate. The full spectrum helped me feel more relaxed and the migraine were less painful, but I also failed a drug test bc of it. The isolate didn't do anything.
When developing our CBD we focused on developing a product that is clean (no flavors or additives that could trigger a migraine attack), strong (33mg a dose), and verified.
I have chronic, but mostly low pain migraines as a result of weather changes, and living in central KY sucks for that kind of trigger.
I'm taking Migra-Eze now, and it has had similar success as CBD oil, for only $20 a month. Planning to add a magnesium supplement soon to see if I can get frequency down even more.
