Treating Headaches and Migraines with CBD

Neurological disorders affect millions of Americans on a yearly basis. From chronic to sporadic, mildly annoying to utterly debilitating, these conditions may be triggered by various factors, and therefore may be quite difficult to treat. But, what if we told you that there’s a natural cure now available to everyone? CBD-based medicine is picking up steam and claiming its rightful place at the forefront of multifaceted relief.

At VEDA: The Leader in Endocannabinoid Nutrition, we strongly believe

in the healing potential of our natural products as they relate to the various conditions in the human body.

No matter what age, profession, or lifestyle, suffering from headaches and migraines can affect all aspects of our daily lives. Relationships suffer, job performance wanes, grades plummet, and all the while the patient spends time and money attempting to cure their ailment. Instead of running the rat race from specialist to specialist, pill to pill, etc., consider implementing CBD. Your body and mind will be grateful!

Keep reading as we discuss different headaches in relation to specific CBD-based treatment.

What causes Headaches/Migraines?

According to WedMD, “approximately 45 million Americans suffer from chronic headaches, and of them, 28 million suffer from migraines.” Primary headaches (cluster, tension, or migraine) are not symptoms of underlying disease, and are often caused by nerve vessel activity, brain chemistry, or by tension in the muscles of the neck and head.

These headaches can also be caused by lifestyle choices and outside stimuli; caffeine and alcohol consumption, lack of sleep, reactions to certain foods, and poor posture can all be factors that affect our brains.

The question then follows: how do we provide ourselves with universal relief with so many variables in play? The answer, unequivocally, is CBD. Its anti-anxiety, anti-inflammatory, muscle-relaxant properties are ideal for headache prevention/treatment.

Treating Tension/Cluster Headaches

Tension headaches are the most common type of headache, and affect approximately 75% of Americans. These usually last from 30 minutes up to a week, and may be caused by soreness in the pericranial muscles. While nausea and vomiting is not normally associated with tension headache, sufferers may experience sensitivity to light and sound during an episode.

Cluster headaches are the most intense compared to all other headaches, with a whopping 10/10 on the severity scale. Their sufferers describe this as a searing pain that digs into the head with a sensation akin to “a hot poker in the eye”. It’s no wonder, then, that they have also been described as “suicide headaches”. Cluster headaches may appear in periods or cycles, and can even jolt the patient out of deep sleep.

For quick cluster and tension headache relief, look no further than our great products. When the work day is getting to be too much, step outside and take a few puffs from our VEDA ECN Vape. Fast-acting relief will hit you before you know it, and your drive home is sure to be headache free!

When your third cluster headache of the day hits you at the worst possible time, try several doses of the Veda Full Spectrum ECN Spray, take a deep breath and enjoy some much needed relief!

Treating Migraines

 

Migraine

headaches differ from the previously mentioned types in that they are biologically inherited. We still aren’t certain as to the underlying cause of this type of headache, however the presence of certain “triggers” provides clues as to prevention and treatment. Some of these triggers may include smells, alcohol, certain foods, poor posture and lack of sleep. Migraines are characterized by throbbing, nausea, light and sound sensitivity and can last from 4 to 72 hours.

For long-lasting effects that deal with everything from treatment to migraine prevention, try our Veda ECN 1,000mg Tincture under your tongue, or in your favorite drink or smoothie. You’ll be experiencing relief in no time, while also enjoying the other great benefits of CBD.
