Strains to End Migraines

Most of us suffer from an occasional headache, but migraines bring a different level of pain. The nausea, light sensitivity, and unbearable pain can ruin your day, disabling you from accomplishing work and other tasks. In the U.S., more than 37 million people suffer from migraines, and it is estimated that 13% of adults in the U.S suffer from migraines. While causes of a migraine are still unknown, there are a number of triggers that can influence an attack. 

These could derive from:

  • Allergies
  • Irregular environments, such as bright or loud noises
  • Stress
  • Sleep
  • Change of diet
  • Depression

While over the counter medicine may work for some people, others may be looking for an alternative solution. Natural remedies are a drug-free way to reduce migraine symptoms. Discover three strains to end migraines, getting you back up on your feet in no time!

Note: Severe migraines may require treatment with prescription or over-the-counter (OTC) medication. Talk to your doctor about a treatment plan that works for you.

OG Kush Marijuana Strain

This strain of marijuana is very common and can be found in most dispensaries. This strain holds powerful sedative effects, making it a perfect match to combat a tough migraine. OG Kush is a hybrid strain that contains 20% of THC which helps take your mind off the pain. The hybrid will offer a double effect of relief and happiness due to the high levels of THC mixed with CBD properties.

Purple Kush Marijuana Strain

Every now and then a migraine will feel so intense the only solution is to relax and ride it out. Purple kush is a great option as it induces a numbing sensation, bound to help you fall asleep and sleep off the migraine. This is a pure Indica strain known for producing a relaxing, mellow feeling which is sometimes exactly what you need to combat a painful migraine.

Harlequin Marijuana Strain

Harlequin is a sativa hybrid that holds 4-7% THC and 8-16% CBD, giving you the feeling of clear-headed and alertness. This can help you make it through the day while accomplishing tasks. Harlequin is best-suited for those who experience high levels of pain with their migraines but are seeking an option that does not have a head high. This strain is known for relaxation rather than sedative.

ACDC

ACDC is a great choice for people who would like pain relief without psychoactive effects. It has a 1:20 THC/CBD ratio, with CBD levels up to 19%, and is also anti-inflammatory, which makes it effective at helping to control migraine symptoms. 

Pineapple Express 

Known for being one of the “most delicious” strains to medicate with, this one also has a strong 17% THC content, and is used by individuals for treating migraines and pain in general. 

Northern Lights

A popular strain and a true indica, Northern Lights is effective at reducing pain as well as inducing relaxation. This strain is particularly popular for treating pain, including acute or chronic migraine headaches.
