(Robert Preidt, U.S. News Health) – A recent study revealed that medical marijuana gives relief to patients suffering migraine.
121 people, who regularly suffered migraine, were subjected into the treatment of marijuana from January 2010 to September 2014. Results of the experiment showed a clinical significance of decrease in the number of occurrence of migraines: from 10 times a month to only 5.
In specific terms, over 100 of the patients said they had a decrease of their monthly migraines. Fifteen of them said they had the same number of migraines. Three reported they had an increase of headaches.
“There was a substantial improvement for patients in their ability to function and feel better,” senior author Laura Borgelt, a professor in the School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences at University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, said in a university news release.
