It can be hard to deal with frequent migraine headaches. There are medicines that can help with headaches and other symptoms of migraine, but patients are often wary of the side effects. Some medical cannabis users have found benefits of using marijuana for migraine headaches. Marijuana contains a bunch of chemical compounds, called cannabinoids, and THC, which is the only known psychoactive cannabinoid, can be useful in getting relief from marijuana. Not all marijuana strains are equal, and each one can work differently for different people. In this post, we are sharing some of the best strains for migraine headaches.
