Well, I, as well as probably a few of you, suffer from chronic migraines. Those who know the excruciating pain and deprivation of life don't need me to describe it. Anywho, I've tried smoking cannabis a few times as soon as soon as my spidey senses tingled and warned me of an oncoming one. I've also tried smoking while I have a migraine attack (doesn't work so well, still seem to vomit and have the pain). What I've found though, is that cannabis is not a good medicine personally for helping migraine attacks, but damn good at preventing them with continual use. I noticed that a while back, during the fall time(which usually is a bad time since the weather changes drastically) my friend hooked me up with a pretty steady supply and as I smoked everyday, the migraines just stopped coming. I smoked this also around the time the winter months came in, maybe 1-2 migraines a month, and even they weren't so bad. However, when he got a new stash and started supplying me, my migraines seemed to come back around spring time rolled around, even though I smoke almost every day.
Now I've kept a migraine journal for two years now and have taken very specific notes on all the days I have attacks, and as I've reviewed it recently I've just realized that strange trend around that time, called up my friend asking him what strain it was, he said he couldn't remember. In all fairness my migraines have been steady for much of my entire life since childhood, so I'm rather confident that that specific strain had a good impact on my head, but for the life of me I can't remember what it was! In any case, I've since been steadily taking some other natural medication and it's helping, yet I would love to know what that strain was, so that I may try to reduce my migraines and headaches even more. So to just get to my question, does anyone know of any specific strains that seem to help migraines, preferably from someone who actually has them and has a card.
I remember Storm Crow mentioning it, perhaps you could help out if you're reading this? All help is welcome; fucking migraines.
