Migraine attacks are debilitating headaches that can last anywhere from 4 to 72 hours.
CBD oil helps combat migraines by regulating a group of nerves and blood vessels in the brain, called the Trigeminal Vascular System (TGVS). The Trigeminal Nerve is believed to play a central role in migraines and cluster headaches by causing the vascular system in the brain to spasm out of control. CBD acts on an area of the TVGS to reduce its activity and alleviate painful symptoms.
CBD oil may also reduce the frequency, duration and severity of migraine attacks.
CBD has both anti- inflammatory and analgesic properties. The chemical compounds actively work against inflammation, whilst its analgesic compounds stop the brain from receiving pain signals from the nervous system.
Patients who have tension headaches have reported the following benefits when using CBD:
- Calming effect
- Reduction of accompanying symptoms
- Pain relief
- Ease of muscle tension
It is not only about the pain
Another aspect of migraine is the high level of anxiety that often precedes or accompanies a migraine attack. CBD is well known for its calming and relaxing effect. It can also promote restful sleep. This affords the body some valuable time to recuperate.
By using CBD you are employing a multi-level strategy to address both the origins and symptoms of migraines and tension headaches.
