What’s In Your Toolbox? Migraine and Cannabinoids

Written by Shoshana Lipson | June 26, 2020

It is interesting that with the rise in migraine research and FDA approval of multiple new treatments, there is a corresponding rise in interest in alternative treatments. Possibly seen most clearly in the area of cannabinoids, there is a growing awareness of the need for options that work but which also have few or no side effects.

The excitement about the possibilities is understandable. However, that excitement needs to go hand in hand with science, awareness of what we do and don’t know, and realism. There is no ‘cure’ for migraine, and sadly utilizing cannabinoids does not change that. That doesn’t mean that they don’t have a viable role to play, though, and for many cannabinoid treatment is an option they’ve either already embraced or are considering adding to their migraine toolbox.
