When I first considered cannabis as an choice to treat our migraines, I assumed that I’d need to smoke it.
I was sure that I’d have few options plus experience psychoactive effects. I wasn’t sure I wanted to try cannabis, but I was unhappy with all the side-effects of prescription medicines. The pharmaceuticals I was taking were causing myself and others all sorts of other complications, plus I was upset about the long-term effects. I wanted something more natural. I’ve dealt with migraines since going through puberty, plus they frequently plus severity has worsened as I’ve gotten older. I was missing too much work. There were nights when I couldn’t get out of bed or tolerate any light or loud noises. I sometimes vomited due to the pain plus nausea. I was ready to try just about anythingâ€¦ My initial trip to the dispensary in Denver was eye-opening. I wasn’t prepared for such a modern, bright plus inviting facility. I was totally surprised by the wide array of products available. I was instantaneously greeted by a budtender who asked a lot of questions plus listened closely to our concerns, concerns plus preferencesâ€¦ She was super knowledgeable, patient plus helpful. She explained that CBD isolate provides the curative benefits of cannabis plus eliminates all traces of THC, broad-spectrum CBD options contain only trace amounts of CBD. SInce THC is the cannabinoid responsible for the psychoactive effects, these products don’t produce a high. CBD has been shown to alleviate pain plus inflammation. I was able to purchase a CBD tincture. I arena a few drops under our tongue as soon as I detect the beginnings of a migraine. The sublingual absorption provides fast-acting effects. I’ve also invested in CBD gummies, then while the effects take a while to set in, they are longer lasting.
