During May we explored how CBD can help with mental health issues such as anxiety and depression. We also investigated how you can include CBD in your yoga and meditation practice. As well as that, can CBD help migraines?
Eliminate Migraines With UrthLeaf CBD
Now, as we enter June, we want to look at the physical ailments that CBD can ease. UrthLeaf salves are proven to alleviate aches and pains. Whether that is a sports injury, age-related problems, or an accident, CBD salves can work to soothe and heal aching joints and muscles.
What about pain that occurs in your head? Great news! CBD works for inflammation, headaches, aches and pains, and even chronic migraines – all maladies that plague countless people daily. Migraines, along with other ailments and chronic conditions, can be debilitating and life limiting. This has led many to turn to over-the-counter painkillers or even prescription drugs to fend off migraines.
Cannabidiol, or CBD, has been growing in popularity since getting legalized alongside hemp in the 2018 Farm Bill. Since then, it has become a go-to, all-natural alternative for a wide range of ailments. From arthritis to chronic migraines, CBD is helping those affected get through their day to day with less pain, less inflammation, and a better quality of life.
How Do I Know If I’m Having A Migraine?
A migraine is hard work and can feel awful. It is usually felt as a throbbing headache on one side of the head. It is not uncommon to experience other symptoms such as feeling sick, being sick and having increased sensitivity to light or sound. Some people have migraines frequently, as much as several times a week! Other people only experience them occasionally.
The exact cause of a migraine is difficult to determine although it is believed they are a result of temporary changes in the chemicals, nerves, and blood vessels in the brain. Some people find migraine attacks are associated with certain triggers such as starting their period, stress, tiredness or certain foods and drinks.
Sadly, there is no cure for migraines. People use several treatments to help reduce the symptoms such as painkillers and lying in a darkened room.
CBD Is A Great Pain Relief Alternative
When you think about how rapidly CBD is sweeping the world, there is no doubt that it is a viable alternative to some pain relief methods. In fact, as the opioid epidemic reaches an all-time high, many lawmakers and activists are turning to hemp and CBD as a recovery treatment for those facing opioid addiction. While more research is always helpful, this is a huge step towards finding a solution to the opioid dependency in the nation.
Even government faces are changing their mind about hemp and CBD. Opposed to marijuana legalization in 2011, the former Speaker of the House, John Boehner, stated that his “thinking on cannabis has evolved”. Now, Boehner understands that cannabis “can help our veterans and reverse the opioid epidemic ravaging our communities”, as he stated in a New York Times interview.
People have used cannabis for thousands of years to treat headaches before it became illegal. There is evidence that CBD oil can reduce inflammation and pain in arthritis. This means it may have the same effects on migraines. Even if it does not have the desired effect on a person’s terrible headache, CBD may work well on easing the muscle and joint aches that are often a symptom associated with migraines.
How To Find The Right Dosage
While CBD can serve as an effective repellent to help fend off migraines, it may take a little experimenting before you find the right dosage that works for you. UrthLeaf’s CBD Hemp Oil Tinctures, for example, come in either a 900mg or 1800mg bottle. They contain CBD, coconut oil, and raw hemp oil.
UrthLeaf recommends starting with the lowest serving recommendation possible. We suggest slowly increasing the dosage until the optimal dose is determined. This makes it easy for even those who are hesitant about introducing CBD to their daily lifestyle.
UrthLeaf tinctures state you should take one full dropper two to three times daily. Hold the CBD under your tongue for up to 90 seconds before swallowing. The sublingual dose, allowing the oil to sit under your tongue, will enable the tincture to enter your bloodstream quicker. This brings about the beneficial effects much sooner.
