The analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties of CBD oil make it most suitable to treat migraines. As you already know, CBD is derived from the cannabis plant. CBD is also well known by the name, cannabinoid of the cannabis plant. Apart from CBD, there are more than 100 other cannabinoids present in the plant. THC is another cannabinoid present in the plant which is known to many of the customers of cannabis. The basic difference between CBD and THC is that the former does not have any potential mind-altering effects after being consumed.
Although a few of the users claim that cannabis has helped them with certain symptoms of headaches, there is too little evidence to prove that it is an effective treatment plan. However, for the ones with unbearable headaches, CBD is surely a life-saver.
Why Would It Work?
People have been using CBD for migraines and normal headaches for quite some time now. I am talking about the days when the use of CBD was not yet legalized. The fact that there is a serious lack of evidence to prove the efficacy of CBD in treating migraines is alarming. However, scientists are certain that the other compounds of cannabis plants offer therapeutic benefits. Hence it makes it suitable for migraines, pains, and headaches. I hope we are clear on one thing though; CBD reduces pain and inflammation in patients suffering from arthritis. There is relevant clinical evidence to prove my point as well.
How Legal Are They?
At present, the laws governing the use of CBD are undeniably hazy. The Farm Bill passed in the year 2018 has provided some relief to the companies manufacturing hemp and hemp-infused products. As directed, the THC content in the products must be kept under 0.3% else it will no longer be treated as a legal product. The FDA has approved the use of purified CBD in the year 2018; provided it doesn’t contain THC. According to doctors, purified CBD can be used for treating severe epileptic health conditions. FDA approved medications doesn’t mean that you can just walk into a drug store and buy it easily. You need the prescription from a medical practitioner for purchasing pure hemp oil.
