Medical Marijuana • Medical Marijuana is a pharmaceutical drug, also referred to as medicine, medication or medicament, can be loosely defined as any chemical substance intended for use in the medical diagnosis, cure, treatment, or prevention of diseases.

Migraine • Migraine is an unrelieved disorder characterized by recurrent temperate to severe headaches often in connection with a number of autonomic nervous system symptoms.

Symptoms of Migraine • Severe pain • Queasiness and vomiting • Hypersensitivity to light/sound/smell • Immobility and • Wanting nothing more than to rest in a dark and quiet room.

Migraines Symptoms in Five Phases • Prodrome (a period of warning symptoms) • Visual or auditory disturbances auras) • Headache • Headache termination • Postdrome

Reasons of Migraines • Certain foods: More than ever chocolate, cheese, nuts, alcohol, and monosodium glutamate (MSG) can generate migraines. Missing a meal may also get on a headache. • Stress and tension are also risk factors • Birth control pills are a common trigger: Women may have migraines at the end of the pill cycle as the estrogen module of the pill is clogged. This is called an estrogen-withdrawal headache.

Healing Cannabis for Migraines • Delta-9 THC (Marinol) is clinically shown to correct serotonin release in migraine sufferers. • Debilitating migraine headaches are also effectively controlled by marijuana in many reported cases. Some migraine sufferers use cannabis at the onset of a migraine attack to relieve the severe pain. • Others use medical marijuana as a preventative measure to control migraine attacks before they occur.

Proof of Marijuana use for Migraines • Medical Cannabis was a standard treatment for migraines from the mid-19th century until it was outlawed in the early 20th century in the USA. It has been reported to help people through an attack by relieving the nausea and dulling the head pain, as well as possibly preventing the headache completely when used as soon as possible after the onset of pre-migraine symptoms, such as aura. There is some indication that semi-regular use may reduce the frequency of attacks. - Wikipedia (Prevention of Migraines)
