Migraine Q & A

What is a migraine?

A migraine is more than just a headache, it’s a neurological condition that can cause various symptoms, including nausea and vomiting. Migraine symptoms can last for hours or days and could be so severe that you can’t do anything but lie in bed.

Some people have migraines once in a while and others experience them nearly every day for a month or longer. Migraines can interfere with your normal routine and keep you from the activities you love. 


What are migraine symptoms?

Symptoms of migraines can progress through four stages, but not everyone who suffers from migraines experiences every stage. Migraine stages include:

Prodrome

The prodrome phase occurs about one to two days before the migraine attack. During this time, you may experience:

  • Irritability
  • Food cravings
  • Fatigue
  • Neck stiffness

Aura

The aura phase involves problems with your vision, movement, sensation, and speech. You may experience visual disturbances like bright spots or have difficulty speaking clearly.

Attack

A migraine attack involves intense, throbbing pain that’s usually on one side of your head. You may also experience nausea, vomiting, and increased sensitivity to light and sound.

Postdrome

The postdrome phase involves changes to your mood and feelings, ranging anywhere from extreme happiness to apathy. 


What’s the treatment for migraines?

Standard migraine treatment usually involves taking medication. However, migraines are notoriously difficult to treat, and medications don’t work for everyone. 

Fortunately, medical cannabis provides a natural alternative to medication. Research from Washington State University found that cannabis reduced migraine severity by 49.6%. The team at Natural Green Remedies helps patients find relief from migraine pain with medical cannabis cards. 


How can I get medical cannabis for migraines?

Medical cannabis is an approved treatment for migraines according to New Jersey law. The first step in obtaining cannabis for treating migraines is to schedule a consultation for a medical card at Natural Green Remedies. A medical doctor discusses your migraine condition and explains how medical cannabis can help. 

Then, they provide you with a written recommendation that you can use to obtain cannabis from a dispensary. 

If you suffer from migraines, call Natural Green Remedies, or schedule your medical cannabis consultation online today.
