Midnight crawlers raise 'em glasses outstretched! (No pun intended!)

The mountain-pile of paperwork that needs to be done; really hits the nail on your head. It's an unending cul-de-sac, rinse-repeat. You stare at your 20-day old wallflower, not noticing it ramped up in size while you're busy painting your head with lots of processes during these hours. Many things can't be done with a simple hurdle - nothing lesser than a migraine.

The aftermath of a painstaking all-nighter puts a thunderbolt between your ears. The squeeze and pulsating in that region is a testament to a nerve-wracking ordeal you just did. Well, at least give yourself a reward after the battle, don't ya?

We're about to share some strains you might consider discovering or re-discovering. Suppose you have access to Medical Marijuana, or it's legal in your state. In that case, we recommend these feel-good nugs to solve your migraine problems.

Get your bowl and prep while you browse on thy shelves.

What is Migraine?

First things first, we have to strongly define Migraine. As intense as it sounds, Migraine is not a simple headache; as people experience it - it's more complex than that. Not the ordinary pain you feel when you're drunk or banged your head on the wall. Internally, it hijacks other pain focusing only on the head.

According to an online report, MIgraine is a kind of headache that results in severe throbbing pain or pulsating sensation - as we mentioned above, usually on either side of the temple.

It is frequently accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and excessive light and sound sensitivity. Migraine episodes can persist for hours or days, and the pain can be severe enough to interfere with everyday tasks.

Some Migraine Symptoms include:

  • Unusual Food Cravings

  • More Frequent Urination

  • Constipation

  • Mood and Behavior Changes

  • Excessive Yawning

  • Fluid Retention

There are existing medicines for Migraine; what about Cannabis?

Cannabis, though it has excellent pain-management properties, is not the primary route of remedy for people experiencing Migraine. Maybe due to the stigma surrounding it - which we're affirmative starts to subdue since its legalization across many states. However, people still resort to the pharmaceutical road.

Medical Marijuana is still an alternative medicine. Proven itself years ago, large groups still doubt the plant, which isn't dubious and has its reasons. Cannabis affects everyone on a different level. It might benefit a person but harm the other.

We keep our fingers crossed as we are yet to witness a mass exodus transition from tablets to Cannabis. Cannabis is easy to get and doesn't have many side effects, to say the least.

We don't want to spoil the moment. Let's go open the jar of goodness for Migraines below!


#1) ACDC

We'll start with a classic. AC/DC is a banger that taps the delicate balance of CBD and THC; it sits between those crevices. AC/DC is a Sativa-dominant high CBD strain; wrapped around to a THC/CBD ratio of 1:20, with CBD levels reaching as high as 19%.

It is recognized for lowering inflammation, which makes it helpful in lessening migraine symptoms. ACDC is an excellent cannabis treatment for anxiety and sadness. Due to its low THC levels, it doesn't have strong psychoactive effects. It perfectly fits the migraine situation.

#2) Purple Kush

If your Migraine feels like a heavy rock pummelling your head, you might as well consider hugging a feathery-soft pillow. Like Aladdin, trance yourself chasing sweet dreamy apples, with a bowl of Purple Kush on top of that.

At least to say, Purple Kush shows pure disrespect to Migraine. It topples the pain and benefits the consumer because it produces a numbing sensation promoting deep sleep.

Purple Kush is a pure Indica strain that arose from the cross-breeding of the Hindu Kush and Purple Afghani Cross in Oakland. It has a THC content of 17-22 percent and a CBD content of 0.07-0.1 percent.

#3) Remedy

Remedy but not so readily. Yeah, this strain is not standard on dispensaries; but you should grab it once you encounter one. It might be one of the best in treating migraines. Its properties don't ooze with overflowing THC levels but boast on its CBD levels reaching 15 percent - an excellent number for combating Migraine.

A calming breeze, the mellow feeling is produced by this strain, which is often just what is satisfying to treat a terrible migraine.

#4) OG Kush

If we're talking about accessibility, the OG Kush takes the cake - for sure. It's easy to find, and most of the dispensaries have them. This Cannabis strain has wild sedative effects; it's a great weapon for absurd migraine symptoms and pain difficulty.

OG Kush is a hybrid cannabis strain with a THC content of up to 20%. The stretch of numbers might be higher, which is totally fine.

Also, OG Kush can provide quick relief because of its strong THC content. Furthermore, its CBD content will aid in the long-term reduction of pain. With this cannabis strain, it's critical to alleviating discomfort while also distracting you from your Migraine.

#5) Harlequin

Wading through the list is the adorned Harlequin strain. Harlequin leans on the 75 percent Sativa-dominant mix with a CBD/THC ratio of 5:2. It has low THC levels ranging from 4-7 percent and a fiery 8-16 percent CBD level.

Unlike other strains on this list, Harlequin gives you more sense of clarity and alertness, which may help you seize the day. This cannabis strain is excellent for persons who have severe pain due to migraines.

This is because it has a balanced amount of THC and CBD, which allows for effective pain treatment without producing a strong high. Harlequin's signature is soothing but not sedative.

Harlequin is a proactive strain. Fire it up before the Migraine becomes severe, and have mellow it while sitting. The effect of the THC and CBD can be optimized depending on the usage. THC may provide a moderate euphoria, while CBD may alleviate pain.

Final reminder:

We want you to enjoy it but please consume Cannabis responsibly. Don't dive headfirst, consuming more than necessary. Consult your doctor for any health regiment changes. Any conditions may persist, and effects vary from person to person.

Other than that, blaze 'em up!
