CBD Oil

My husband has been my rock. He pushes me, he prays for me, he prays over me, most importantly he will not let me give up and keeps me encouraged that one day we will find the one thing that works. He is always looking and researching for new things, medications, or some off the wall idea to help get our life back. Needless to say he has never mentioned CBD oil so about a month ago when I brought up that I was interested in trying it for migraine and other health issues he laughed at the idea. He wasn’t being mean, he was just shocked that I would throw out an idea especially since I had given up on any and all treatments we have been offered and have shot down so many of his off the wall antics. I told him if mind over matter works, I will gladly take it at this point.

He had a bottle ordered and delivered within a week. It’s still early in the game but I can definitely tell a difference in my levels of anxiety throughout the day, which helps with the stress. I am feeling hopeful.

Has anyone tried CBD for migraine? If so how is it working for you?

    I started taking CBD hemp oil in April after my pharmacy and doctor told me I was taking too much naratriptan. My doctor told me to go on a 2 week detox and I nearly flipped out. But it just so happened that I had already ordered CBD hemp oil after a neighbor recommended it. It arrived the same week my doctor told me to detox. I was having a migraine nearly every single day. The first month after starting CBD I only had 9 migraines, the next month 7, and the following month 3. As far as I’m concerned it is a miracle! Please note that I take CBD oil from hemp, not marijuana.

    I’m curious about how this would effect employment. I am in an at will job and also FMLA for my migraines because they get so bad. I do not know if my job would handle me getting cbs oil and also drug testing could be an issue. Oh and I reside in TN. Any assistance and/or comments would be appreciated.

    Hi castfam09,

    I’m not sure about this. You’d need to do some digging to see if CBD hemp shows up on a drug screen.

    What is your company’s policy on this? That may be something to look into.

    Keep us posted,

    CBD oil from hemp does not show up on a drug test which tests for THC content. They are totally unrelated. Just be sure to get the hemp based ones.

    I would just like to clarify, CBD oil from industrial can show a positive on a drug test if it is full sprectrum….tons of people don’t know this! If you take CBD only and it’s noted THC free you should be safe. I own a Hemp company.

    I stopped taking triptan meds since I found they were causing rebound headaches. I started using ProCBDoil capsules at bedtime (they help with sleep) along with CBD Clinic topical cream #4 as needed for pain. So far (about 3 weeks) my headaches have been greatly reduced in number and intensity. The capsules can be purchased online, the topical cream has to be purchased at a medical office like a chiropractor.

    At the request of my son I am taking the High Potency Tincture CBD oil from Lazarus for the past 3 weeks, 1 mg in AM & PM, under the tongue for a couple of minutes then swallow. I’ve noticed a small degree of less Cluster Headaches and Neuropathy pain but nothing major. Probably going to have to increase the dose.

    Hi! I was really hesitant about exploring medication through my doctor which I know sounds crazy but I was not fond of all of the side effects of migraine treatments so I decided to try CBD. It has literally been life changing. I know it doesn’t work for everyone, but I do 5 drops in my coffee in the morning and use a vape filled with CBD oil occasionally throughout the day and it has reduced my migraines to about once a month and they are treatable with a benadryl/excedrine/nap combination. It has also reduced my cluster headaches and neck pain which were both migraine triggers. The trick is to be sure that you are dosing high enough as well as often enough. CBD is more of a preventative than a rescue treatment but it does reduce the nausea and pain when I am actively experiencing one if I use the vape pen. Like i said, not for everyone but if you haven’t, it’s worth a shot.

    Hi kknight,

    Yes!! I’m currently a certified cannabis patient for migraine and chronic pain. I use a tincture, oil, at bedtime and vape during the day for breakthrough pain.

    It’s also very helpful for my restless leg and periodic movement limb disorder.

    I thought I was the only one who gets the restless leg issue when I get migraines. Glad to know I’m not.
