Cannabis can be useful for treating migraine and other forms of headache
A study conducted by the Department of Psychology and the Translational Addiction Research Center at Washington State University, United States, showed that cannabis provides a significant reduction in headache.
The researchers will use an application (app) so that patients in medical treatment with cannabis can automatically monitor the symptoms and before using cannabis.
This technology is also intended to determine whether genetics, THC or CBD content and dose influence the outcome.
The collection of user data determined that there were 12,293 to treat headache and 7,441 for migraine. Among the first results included that “men affected greater headache reductions than women”, well, “the use of concentrates is associated with greater reductions than with flowers”.
“Inhaled cannabis reduces headache and migraine severity by approximately 50%. However, its effectiveness seems to decrease over time and patients can use increasing doses, which may develop tolerance to these effects with continuous use.”, the researchers conclude.
