If you do some research on Google, you will find so much information on CBD oil. Some of it is interesting, some is just bad crap. Just looking at the heading of this article, you will get an idea on the kind of politics and money that is going into various points of views on this topic. Here emotions run high on every side.
You can take CBD oil by using drops or spray for conditions such as headaches or migraine, or as a capsule. Many people use it as a preventive, and some as an abortive.
- First, CBD oil does not necessarily have a “psychotropic” effect, because it doesn’t have any psychotropic chemical tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). There are many types of CBD oils with different percentages of CBD (cannabidiol) and THC. CBD oil with small or negligible amount of THC has good anti-migraine effect, as many oils with a mix of THC and CBD. But to answer a question you may have in mind, no there is no need to “get high” for this “work”.
- Today many people are reporting that CBD oil does help them, with chronic pain and migraine conditions. There is sufficient information on record to make us hopeful about future use of this oil. However, there is still very little information from clinical trials, so solid evidence is still missing.
- If you have plans to buy CBD oil online, you should do so only from a reliable source. There is lot of slick around, and many professional looking websites may sell substandard CBD oil that may not show results. Many times the oil they supply has hardly any CBD in it. It may contain harmful chemicals. So you need good research and some experimentation to see what works well for you.
- You will see lot of contradictory information about legality. Actually, legality depends on the country you are residing in, and specific laws of that country.
So if you’ve researched on migraine treatments for years, you will find that though cannabis has been used throughout history, CBD oil is definitely one of the newest treatments that is in early stages of clinical trial research. There are so many migraine treatments and combinations that have great evidence behind them that you need to probably try first.
That’s not to say that CBD oil or marijuana/cannabis/hemp related treatments do not work for migraines. There are many valid areas of study, but that specific study has just begin. So be aware of risk associated with these treatment options.
If you’ve plans to try CBD oil for your migraine, discuss this with your doctor, and be aware of all the risks. Do some research before you invest in this option.
