I’ve dealt with migraine headaches since I was a small child.
My symptoms became worse once I went through puberty.
The pain would become so drastic that I couldn’t get out of bed. I needed the kitchen pitch dark with no noise. I’d sometimes suffer nausea, vomit and have no appetite. Over the years, I tried all weird types of beach house remedies, from weird essential oils and herbal teas to massage therapy and acupuncture. These possibilities provided really little relief. I went to various weird doctors and experimented with a variety of pain medications. While pharmaceuticals helped to treat our symptoms, they caused others. When I researched the painkillers, I l gained that they came with harmful, long-term side-effects much worse than headaches. When I was in school, various friends of mine suggested that I try cannabis, and at that time, marijuana was not yet legal. I was unwilling to split the law. When our state finally lifted the ban on medicinal cannabis, I instantly applied for our card. This has provided access to the dispensaries in the area. Cannabis has helped myself and others to reuse our quality of life. The budtenders gave helpful recommendations. They explained the types of consumption methods, strains of cannabis and effects of cannabinoids and terpenes. After some experimentation, I appreciate tinctures because they are fast-acting and discreet. I shop at the dispensary for CBD-dominant tinctures that soothe our migraines separate from worry over causing further health complications. I place the dose under our tongue for sublingual absorption. The tinctures are small enough to fit into a pocket. They cause no smoke, stink or ash and have an especially long shelf-life.
