  • 2 Hours ago I had the aura, was seeing spots everywhere and it was trippy as hell. The migraine kicked in so I headed off to buy some bud, very averaged outdoor and viola my migraine is now bearable after a bong. Its pathetic how this is denied in order to make the Pharmas and doctors more money… Heartless greed…

  • I used to have chronic headaches Atleast 2 to 3 headaches a week ever since I’ve been smoking marijuana I had no head aches maby like once a mounth if I’m lucky

  • I used to have the worst migraines with auras, I wasn’t able to see my left eye in the mirror.(I’d usually have migraines every week). I started using cannabis and cbd and the last time I had one was 3 months ago

  • Since my early days in college, I have these headaches. Also obtained the Daith piercing to test and also help lessen the severity and frequency. My colleague suggested I consider this impressive vestibular migraine guide “Mοyοkοn Axy” (Google it) to examine if it had any particular amazing benefits. In my situation it gets results. Since the month of October I have not endure headaches..

  • I just tested this hypothesis and I believe this to be 100% true! Marijuana provides instant relief for migraine headaches. On a further note when I smoked it habitually I would hardly even get migraines.

  • plus you have to pay for it and if you dont you go to jail over a curing medicine that grew naturally from the earth lovely speech

  • Im glad they added Migraines to the “conditions list”. I suffer from debilitating migraines and i tell u what, they fukn suck! I literally have to take a nap so it can go away. It only works half the time. If i was at work or out somewhere in public i dont know how id be able to deal with it. Over the counter meds dont always work or dont hit right away. I hope to get my medical card sometime soon

  • its not here and I still use it for my migranes, just started this year and i didnt have a single one for 2 months until i had to go on a vacation, Im happy that other people who are suffering from these damn things are getting relief too

  • Please help my gf suffers from migraines she was recently hospitalized and aneurysms run in her family the doctor prescribed a pill with tons of side effects and I try to tell her to try cannabis but she is scared because she is going into the criminal Justice field and is worried about ruining her whole career, any advice?

  • I was able to completely eradicate a migraine for the first time in my life through a combination of prescribed sumatriptan and tramadol, otc Aleve, and a couple hits of 3:1 cbd/thc hybrid marijuana. Unfortunately it requires a cocktail of so many things but when the migraine is torturing you you’re willing.

  • If you use it in your own home and not around children then it should be fine however if you go out and drive whilst being high then its a problem

  • From personal experiences, It gets rid of headaches, it eliminates nausea, it gets rid of stress, it can put you to sleep, and at times it treats depression. It’s not a “gate way drug” and it doesn’t make people do stupid things. Remember this: Stupid people do stupid things.

  • I have found that it helps with my migraines. Hemp Freeze along the base of my hairline at the onset of a migraine seems to lessens the severity of my headaches. #hemphelps #hempfreeze

  • great info
    i have chronic migraine
    over 12 years

    also using medical cannabis
    8 months now
    tinctures, gels & vape

    have not been able to break the migraine cycle yet
    but it does help my nausea & joint pain

    noticed u have all sativa based strains
    i used sativa & gave me panic attack

    hesitate to try more sativa strain but I just may try blue dream

  • CBD-weed can be used to improve sleep, a 50:50 strain for example can work to stop an evolving attack and get back to sleep. CBD also works when it’s necessary to focus hard and to stop unwanted side effects of thc-weed.

  • Marijuana is the safest of all drugs. It is far safer to smoke a joint than to have a beer. Pot is the drug of choice for people who want to get high, but be responsible in getting high. There are people who do no drugs at all, and that’s fine. But for those of you who want to get high and be responsible, Pot is a very good choice.
    There has never been a documented case of marijuana overdose

  • It’s funny you mention the uncontrollable giggles…I totally forgot about that. This will go away. It’s a newbie thing. The jaw pressure I do notice sometimes. I wear a bite guard when I sleep so I don’t grind away my teeth. Another thing I want to mention is that strain will make a difference. Some strains really make you concentrate. Depending on your personality and body…it may make you focus on the pain…from some others it helps distract you from the pain. I personally believe a lot of what is going on with pain management with marijuana is pain distraction. At least for me.

  • I’m allergic to cbd so I’ve been trying something else and haven’t had a migraine in 7 months. I have more energy and feel more awake too.

  • I Am on Sumatriptan 50 mg. it usually works for me but gives me incredibly sore muscles. If I have a sore muscle already like plantar fasciitis that gets worse. Shoulder knots worsen. Anyone has any remedies for that or similar experience. Am trying CBD sub lingual since July. No luck so far. Nothing works apart from Sumatriptan.

  • I have migraines with aura and the only thing that worked for me was CBD oil. I was on so many medications over the last 10 years and nothing worked. I vaped CBD forst and it worked instantly I couldnt believe it. Now im using Dr. Hemp Me’s 10% CBD oil every day and iv been migraine free for over a year.

  • lol smoking it right now and I have a headache sore muslces its working and i have epilepsy prevents seizure. lol your still breaking the law dont worry cigarettes which can cause ba dhealth and cancer are legal booze which can cause carcrashes billions of deaths is legal weed can cure help epilepsy cancer headaches soreness almost anything and its illegal. lovely how people try to pass it as medical because they wanna make money off of you lol

  • Interesting podcast, thanks for doing it. I have some experience here. I get migraines (6’s) about 4-8 times per month. I live in Colorado. I’ve experimented and here’s what I’ve found: CBD does nothing for my headaches. I’ve tried from 10 mg, to 60 mg dosages. None make any impact at all. I’ve used the sub-lingual (under tongue tabs), and oils. I’ve given up on them. THC is a different thing. In my trials, I found that at about 25 mg of THC (gummies), my 6’s go down to 2’s, but more importantly, the “high” I get sort of “drowns out” the headache and the headache becomes very tolerable, frankly because the tingling in the body, and the relaxing in the mind is pretty profound on the THC. Normally, my headaches are late afternoon/evening so I generally use the THC, then go to bed. The problem is that when I wake up (to go to the bathroom) about 4 or 5 hours later, I’m not high anymore, but the headache is still there. So in my words, I find that the THC “masks” the headache, but it doesn’t eliminate it. Thus I don’t consider this to be a “solution”.
    A further complication: there are two kinds of THC: Sativa (for social occasions, being around people, being active, mental trip, etc.), and Indica (puts you to sleep, a body high, think “in da couch”). I’ve only tried Indica. Perhaps the Sativa would actually knock out the headache instead of just masking it. I am planning to try Sativa edibles.
    Another complication: from talking to the folks selling at the dispensaries, there is a MAJOR difference between the edibles and the smoke-ables. The difference is not just in the time to effectiveness; but in the quality and intensity of the high (and thus, maybe, the pain-killing potential). I’m trying to muster the courage to experiment with treating a migraine with a smoke-able Sativa.

  • I’ve had chronic migraines most of my life.. marijuana cures 100% of headache pain. I’m so glad I will be able to get a medical marijuana card, b/c I love to smoke weed relationally.

  • Gracias por la charla. Como consejo, sugiero que coloquen subtítulos en español o hasta en inglés, para comprender mejor. Gracias

  • My dad knows a guy who has a medical marijuana card. here in Hawaii you’re allowed to have up to six plants. it doesnt matter how big they are. so the guy has six lined up in his house covering the entire wall.

  • Let me tell you something, I been smoking weed faithfully every damn day since this pandemic started. I feel healthier than I’ve ever been. NO HEADACHES. Oddly enough, I even experienced weight loss. Period symptoms have gotten better.

  • I am a weed smoker. Weed always makes my migraines a million times worse. I never smoke during a migraine. I’m in so much pain right now. Stuck at work. Pray for me.

  • its different for everyone, i just did acupuncture today and I feel great right now, first time I ever did it I really reccomend that too, but weed isnt for everyone, people react differently but the lady I had said she knows many people (10% of her clientel) who come ot her for migraines and it works great but yeah she said some of them use cannabis

  • I just tested this hypothesis and I believe this to be 100% true! Marijuana provides instant relief for migraine headaches. On a further note when I smoked it habitually I would hardly even migraines.

  • My wife battle with Breast cancer(invasive ductal carcinoma) started August 25th (2018) years ago, after so many Chemo, Radiation and other natural therapy treatment that i took just to cure my wife Breast cancer, it all did not work for my condition. I have been treating this disease for the past 2 years, but today I am here telling the world about my final victory over my wife Breast cancer with the help of Herbs from A herbalist from Maryland. This is a breakthrough in my Life with so much Joy in our life today, I do really appreciate all the help and contribution from every member of my family, everyone that suggested or prescribed any medications, thank everyone for all they did for me. And if you have any kind of cancer diseases, there is no need to waste money on Chemo or Radiation, go get herbals from Dristan from ( [email protected]), this is a herbalist that has all herbs that totally kill cancer cell medication on cancer

  • Different brands of CBD work better than others for me. Green Rhodes 1500mg twice a day helps the most. For an active migraine, CBD along with MJ with both active ingredients helps me. You have to find the strain that works best for you. I’ve been on Aimovig for the past 6 months and that has been a game changer for me. I’ve gone from a minimum of 15 per month while ON Botox and Occipital Nerve blocks. On Aimovig over the past 6 months I’ve had a total of 5 mild and short lived migraines. MJ helps with nausea and visual disturbances. It also helps me sleep and reduces or eliminates the stress involved. Even with Aimovig, I get what I consider silent migraines. All of the light sensitivity, nausea, etc., without or with minimal head pain. As far as CBD/THC effectiveness, I think it’s a matter of the right dosage, brand and strain that works best for you.

  • Oh and you must know that marijuana effects REM sleep. Essentially eliminating it. I notice that I rarely remember dreaming when smoking daily. When I stop for 2+ days…DREAMS FLOOD BACK…Very lucid for me too.

  • I live in the UK and suffer from crippling Migraines. My symptoms include partial to total blindness, extreme headaches, nausea, insomnia and I often depression when I have lots of migraines in a short space of time (which is very common).
    I have tried using marijuana to treat migraine illegally and it works brilliantly. However I can’t get it legally here in the UK, even as a medicine. I have tried ALL other treatments and non of them work. I feel massively failed by my government and the NHS.

  • So if I’ve understood this correctly Cannabis can not only help prevent cluster headache but can also treat an attack? If so then more research needs to be performed and quickly, too! For example, I use Subcutaneous Sumatriptan when I get a CH, and 75% of the time it’s totally effective, however the other 25% of the time I get no relief and have to call the doctor for help. If it’s during the day the doctor will come and give 20mg intramuscular Morphine or Diamorphine with good effect, but out of hours an ambulance is sent. Oxygen therapy never seems to work so they give Entonox (Nitrous oxide 50%, Oxygen 50%) with a mild to moderate effect until a doctor can administer intravenous or intramuscular Morphine, or intranasal Diamorphine. But this all takes time and a treatment that I could use at home when Imigran/Imitrex isn’t working would be a god send. I take valproate to prevent clusters however the effects are little to none. And here in the UK Octreotide is not licensed for CH. So if this is an option then those of us with persistent CH despite standard treatment need to know.

    Thank you for this very educational and informative video, greatly appreciated here and I look forward to learning more about the use of Cannabis is treating CH as I definitely understand why they’re also known as suicide headaches. Keep up the good work!

  • im allergic to Ibuprofen which rules out all typical over the counter pain killers and the only thing I can take is Tylenol which has little to no effect on my migraines.  One day a migraine had me bed-ridden and a friend of mine offered me a joint and within 10 minuets my migraine was completely gone, since then I’ve been lobbying for MMJ legalization in Ohio so I can get a card and relieve my migraines without breaking the law.
