Studies out of Isreal, Italy, Spain, China, Germany and other European countries have added to the wide body of research on cannabinoids and migraine.
A recent study out of Italy suggests that genetic deficiencies may be at play in severe headaches and migraine.
The majority of studies used purified Cannabidiol – or CBD, which does not create a high for those taking it.
The study concluded that “the potential effects of cannabinoids on serotonin in the central nervous system indicate that marijuana may be a therapeutic alternative.”
“Endocannabinoids in chronic migraine. Findings suggest a system failure” was published in the medical journal Neuropsychopharmacology in 2017.
