Migraines: Does Cannabis Help Reduce the Symptoms?

CANNABIS AND MIGRAINES

Cannabis has been used for its medicinal properties for centuries. Treating headaches and migraines with cannabis? Some evidence points to cannabis being the lead prescription in the 6th and 7th centuries to help patients find relief from headache symptoms. What does it do for a migraine?

Where Do Migraines Come From?

Emerging research suggests that migraines are linked to clinical endocannabinoid deficiency (CECD) in patients. Endocannabinoids are the body’s natural cannabis. A decrease in certain endocannabinoids can lead to some of the symptoms associated with a migraine.

How Does Cannabis Help?

Migraines are often associated with lower levels of the “bliss hormone” within the endocannabinoid system. Cannabis works to relieve some of the symptoms of a migraine by supplementing or restores cannabinoid levels to the endocannabinoid system causing you to feel relief from migraine symptoms. Although it doesn’t fully cure the symptoms it greatly reduces them to the point that patients experience a reduction in the intensity or sometimes the frequency of the migraine symptoms.

Anxiety and Cannabis: It’s All In Your Head

anxiety and cannabis

The connection between anxiety and cannabis is not new to cannabis users. Chances are, if you have consumed cannabis, you have a story about a time you got “too high” and entered into a state of panic, paranoia, or overall anxiety. Some experience mild anxiety like the type you get from drinking too much coffee, while others get a fit of giggles that leads them to believe they will never catch their breath again and that they have reached the end.

Although stories of cannabis induced anxiety are somewhat common, how is cannabis helping people living with anxiety, stress, or paranoia? Where does the polarizing effect come from? – turns out, it’s all in your head.

Anxiety and Cannabis

 

Brain Chemistry, Anxiety and Cannabis

Cannabinoids such as THC and CBD bind with receptors throughout the brain where anxiety and cannabis go to play. Most of the brain’s receptors are found in the amygdala, the part of the brain responsible for emotional processing – governing your response to fear, stress, and paranoia.

How does the amygdala work? The amygdala receives all sensory inputs from your environment and forms associations with neutral information such as sound or smell in your surroundings. These interpretations are then processed into an emotion and can turn into adaptive behaviors. For example, if you hear a noise just before feeling pain you will likely associate that noise with pain at a later occurrence.

When you add cannabinoids to the mix it can modify the neural communication happening in your brain; this can be either good or bad. When things go south it’s because THC has over-excited the neural pathways in the brain which is what causes the anxiety or paranoia.

 

 

 

Anxiety and the Endocannabinoid System

Receptor sites that belong to the endocannabinoid system exist in your entire body and fill with cannabinoids and other naturally produced compounds called endocannabinoids. Anxiety and other ailments occur when there is a deficiency in the endocannabinoid system.

An endocannabinoid deficiency is most often seen in brains that are exposed to excessive stress and trauma – think PTSD or similar disorders. Because anxiety is commonly seen in brains with an endocannabinoid deficiency, cannabis has a soothing effect on these brains as it replenishes the system with cannabinoids.

Risk Factors for Anxiety and Cannabis

Anxiety can affect anyone and the effects of cannabis vary widely from person to person, but certain elements make some more at risk of experiencing anxiety than others.

General Risk Factors
  • Genetic predisposition
  • Personality and psych history
Anxiety and Cannabis Risk Factors
  • Frequency of use
  • Dose of THC
  • Setting and atmosphere

New users are more likely to experience heightened anxiety or paranoia due to their low tolerance levels and inexperience with dosing their cannabis. The anxiety is triggered when large doses of THC are introduced into your system.

A good way to avoid cannabis induced anxiety is to dose by smoking or vaping cannabis. The effects are almost instant and easier to moderate than other methods of consumption. Edibles can be inconsistent and easy to overdo as their effects are time released.

San Diego Cannabis Delivery in Jeopardy

Cannabis Delivery - SDCDA Fight

California overwhelmingly voted in favor of legalizing recreational marijuana in the last election, but San Diego’s cannabis delivery is in jeopardy. This will potentially restrict many patients from continuing to have safe and reasonable access to their medical cannabis.

The Issue Cannabis Delivery Faces

The problem with the law’s current language is that it fails to establish a license option for non-storefront dispensaries (delivery services). The Medical and Adult Use Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act of 2017 (MAUCRSA), passed by Governor Brown in June, addresses this by clarifying that: “A retailer’s premises may be closed to the public. A retailer may conduct sales exclusively by delivery.”

However, the San Diego City Council is moving to ban cannabis delivery services from obtaining legal operating licenses in 2018.

Who Is Fighting To Keep Your Delivery Legal

The San Diego Cannabis Delivery Alliance (SDCDA) was formed to elevate and legitimize cannabis delivery services as they fight to keep delivery legal in San Diego City and County. The SDCDA mission is to ensure public safety and reasonable access to cannabis medicine through a network of legal delivery services in San Diego city and county.

How Terpenes Can Increase Medical Marijuana’s Effectiveness

terpenes-medical-marijuana

Terpenes are unique odor molecules that are produced by a vast amount of species of plants. In cannabis, these molecules are responsible for the aroma, or the distinct smell of cannabis. In addition to the pleasant smell they give cannabis, they also supply a wide array of medical benefits, such as antimicrobial, antiseptic, and anti-carcinogenic effects. What most cannabis users don’t know, though, is that terpenes can also play into the potency of medical marijuana as well as the medical benefits.

Everyone has experienced a bit of anxiety as a reaction to medical marijuana. THC-induced anxiety is common in users who are unaware what their limits are with medical marijuana. After years of research, it has been found that certain types of terpenes in cannabis can counteract this anxiety and decrease this negative side effect. In addition to this, there is data that shows these molecules can treat other health issues such as addiction, cancer, epilepsy, pain, depression, and many others. Another important thing to note about terpenes in medical marijuana is that the beneficial qualities of these molecules can be seriously damaged if heated past their boiling point.

The following article by Medical Jane breaks down the many areas in medical marijuana where terpenes play a big role. At Kaya, we’ve found that more and more doctors are prescribing marijuana by factoring in the strain’s terpene levels in addition to THC and CBD. If treating medical ailments is one of your main reasons for exploring cannabis, consider looking into the terpene makeup of the strains you choose. If you need a recommendation for a type of strain to type, our dispatchers are always here to help.

If you’re curious about the terpene makeup of a specific flower you are looking at on our menu, check the product details. Terpenes results will be placed there if they are available!

Read more about how terpenes can influence the effect of cannabis and even reduce THC-induced anxiety below.
