For those of us who suffer persistent headaches or migraines, there is nothing more dread-inducing than the first twinges that indicate the onset of an episode. Maybe you know your triggers well, or perhaps you’re still searching for answers—but either way, once the pain sets in, so too does the desperation for relief.
If you’ve struggled with headaches or migraines for long, you’ve most likely explored both preventive and abortive medications as well as lifestyle changes. Healthy habits are always positive to develop—who couldn’t stand to drink some extra water or get a little more sleep?
But when it comes to relying regularly on medication, you could be doing yourself more harm than good. Over-the-counter (OTC) painkillers and prescription medications can cause damage to your kidneys, liver, and stomach when taken over a long period of time. They can also be dangerous to take with other medications if the ingredients are the same or contraindicated, which means you have to be hypervigilant if you’re combating your headaches/migraines with more than one medication. If you’ve got allergies, you have an extra reason to watch out: Most OTC painkillers contain allergens, which can lead to inflammation, skin irritation, and more.
Prescription pills come with a whole additional host of concerns, depending on the kind you’re taking. But even if the benefits outweigh the risks, being chained to an RX for the rest of eternity can be discouraging—especially when you’re dependent on a doctor and/or insurance, forced to make regular office visits, etc. It can feel like you have less control of your health than you’re entitled to.
We’re sure you’ve been asked this before: Have you tried CBD?
Specifically, we want to know if you’ve tried full spectrum hemp oil. Unlike products that use CBD isolate, full spectrum hemp oil takes advantage of the entire profile of terpenes, cannabinoids, and flavonoids that a plant has to offer. Working together synergistically, these compounds can have an incredible impact on a person’s wellness.
For many sufferers, Full Spectrum Hemp Oil can offer relief after the onset of a headache or migraine. For others, a daily dose can lead to fewer episodes as the CBD and other compounds have a chance to build up in the system. In either case, a CBD-rich wellness tincture can be a way to lighten one’s dependency on OTC or prescription medications—and to discover much-needed relief from a natural source.
Whether you’ve given it an unsuccessful shot or eschewed it altogether, we encourage you to consider full spectrum hemp oil. Look specifically for a tincture extracted from organic hemp, as hemp can accumulate chemicals that are present in the land it is being grown in. It should also have been tested for heavy metals. Dosage will depend on your particular situation and needs, so give yourself time to adjust—and don’t hesitate to talk to an expert if you need advice.
