June is Migraine Awareness Month. Millions of people suffer from this devastating and sometimes crippling illness including children. According to research done by Dr. Lawrence Newman, director of the Division of Headache at NYU Langone Medical Center in NYC,
“There are over 40 million Americans
who suffer from migraines”.
Treatment options can span from botox injections, laser treatment and sometimes even surgery. Those who are looking for a more natural and holistic treatment option tend to use herbal supplements, dietary changes, lifestyle changes and fitness routines like yoga.
However, more and more people are turning to CBD or Medical Cannabis for relief now that CBD has become a legal medical treatment. Migraine sufferers now have hope they can live their daily lives in less pain.
Forbes Magazine did an article on a recent study that monitored patients who suffer from migraines and cluster headaches. The research done showed that patients who used CBD had a significant reduction in overall symptoms. Including, those who were able to dampen the effect of an onset migraine.
