Sep 16, 2018 | Cannabis, Migraine Treatment

Joseph Kwamesha writing for Clinical Pain Advisor reports Cannabis may be an effective treatment for headache management, according to a study to be presented at the 2018 World Congress on Pain, held September 12-16 in Boston, Massachusetts.

The trial included 3500 patients in a university-based tertiary headache clinic, 310 of whom were self-identified as marijuana users. Researchers evaluated the perceived effectiveness and concomitant effects of marijuana for headache management using a detailed patient intake questionnaire. New patients who self-identified as marijuana users were asked to complete a supplemental institutional review board (IRB)-approved study questionnaire.
