Migraines can be annoying and can also damage the bodies of those affected.

For years, cannabis has been studied as a possible medical solution for migraine control and pain relief for patients.

In 2016, a study carried out by different researchers was published in the journal Pharmacotherapy. This analysis was developed between 2012 and 2014, following more than 120 adults with constant migraines.

The research result showed that migraine attacks decreased from 10.4 to only 4.6 per month with the use of medical cannabis.

39% of the patients used medical cannabis preventively to avoid migraines, 19% of the patients felt that they controlled their migraines when using medical cannabis, 11% of the patients reported that they smoked cannabis and felt pain relief when inhaling marijuana.

The adverse effects of this cannabis treatment were drowsiness, which was experienced by 11% of the patients, and difficulties in controlling the effects of cannabis to the dose of consumption (1% of the patients)

Here, we share 10 of the best varieties that will help you fight against the annoying migraine and relieve those pains that you are suffering from.

1. Chemdawg 4

Due to the high potency of this strain and also to its effect that is mental, relaxing, and also physical, cannabis users recommend Chemdawg #4 for the control of migraines.

Chemdawg 4 is a mostly Indica variety, therefore it tends to induce sleep in users with various types of pain as it has a unique anti-inflammatory quality.

All these properties of Chemdawg 4 are inherited from its ancestors that go back to some Skunk and Afghan varieties, originating from the high mountains.


2. Girl Scout Cookies

This famous variety, mostly Sativa, which was strongly popularized in the United States, is one of the great cannabis gems in the fight against migraine headaches since it can relieve pain in people suffering from this pathology.

The effects of Girl Scout Cookies range from a euphoria typical of Sativa varieties to a relaxation that does not leave you stuck in the chair. On the contrary, it is a bearable relaxation thanks to its ancestors which are the famous Sativa Durban Poison and the acclaimed Idica Og Kush.

To the above, we can add the rich, sweet bouquet and a rich mint flavor.



3. Blue Dream

This American variety has been characterized as the Blue Dream of cannabis growers and consumers.

Blue Dream is used medicinally due to its relaxing and pleasant effects. Some people describe Blue Dream as a train without brakes that leaves novice consumers knocked out.

The Blue Dream genetics come from a cross between Blueberry x Super Silver Haze. On the one hand, this strain can be completely overwhelming and on the other, it provides activation sparks.

This wonderful sativa is used in medicinal ways for different pathologies. People who need a boost to improve their mood and patients suffering from migraines are the most recurrent medicinal users.

In some consumers, the effect of OG Kush produces a strong drowsiness effect. Due to this, many patients who suffer from migraines may benefit as it will help them to fall asleep deeply.

We recommend using OG Kush responsibly and not overstepping the limits so that your migraine therapy is not affected by excessive consumption and a bad trip.



7. Kyle`s Skywalker OG

It is a mostly indica variety that is characterized by its exquisite citrus aroma with a soft touch of fuel.

Kyle`s Skywalker OG’s genetics were made by the acclaimed American breeder, Kyle Kushman, who brought the medicinal touch to this beautiful strain to fight migraines. It originated from a cross between Skywalker and OG Kush.

Different pathologies such as migraines, nausea, anxiety, stress, and appetite problems can be treated with Dream Queen. The effects of consuming these genetics can last between 2 and 4 hours. For this reason, we invite medicinal users to use it with caution.
