CBD Treatment Case: Migraines



If you’re not familiar with what it feels like to have a migraine, then consider yourself among the lucky. Migraines are far more common than most people realize. They impact a huge percentage of the world’s population.

A migraine is a severe, sustained headache that comes out of the blue. Light sensitivity and throbbing pain, as well as a sensitivity to sudden noises, characterize this terrible experience.

Unfortunately, even though this is a widely suffered condition, and even though the experience of an acute attack that characterizes this condition is considered to be so terrible, there is no one-size-fits-all remedy that migraine sufferers can turn to.

Some tools work for some people some of the time and to some extent. But nothing really does the job full stop.

Given all of that, we’re here today to bring the good news: CBD may be an important new knight in shining armor riding to the rescue for those suffering from migraines.

Understanding Migraines

To get a better feel for how CBD may offer new hope for those suffering from migraines, it’s important that we first understand more about migraines.

As noted above, those who suffer from migraines often say that the experience of an acute attack seems to come out of the blue. There is much debate in the scientific community about the true root cause of migraines. One of the most important facts to highlight this debate is the idea that the brain doesn’t have any pain sensors.

In other words, if someone were to pull off part of your cranium and look right down upon your exposed brain, they could poke it and prod it all they want and you would only feel a strange pressure, but no pain. It is thought that this is the only part of the body where that is true.

What we do understand is that the brain simply fails – in the case of a migraine – to locate the source of the pain. When you are suffering from a migraine, it feels as though the pain is coming from something that more or less represents the geometric center of your brain.

But the actual source of pain is likely very different – blood vessels, eyes, sinuses, upper neck, etc.

CBD and Migraines

Largely through anecdotal evidence, researchers have come to understand that CBD appears to have an extraordinarily powerful impact in improving the experience for those suffering from a migraine headache. But, at this point, we aren’t exactly sure why.

We do know that CBD has a strong ability to diminish sensitivity of pain, and also to re-balance the body’s internal endocannabinoid system when it is suffering from a deficiency.

It may be that, through some combination of these effects, CBD is able to generally impact the experience of a migraine for the better.

This should hardly be surprising given the role that the endocannabinoid system plays in all sorts of important regulatory functions in the body. This system is intimately tied into our experience of our moods, sleep patterns, digestive system, and sensitivity to pain.

Given that all of these factors are involved in the experience of a migraine headache, it should hardly come as shocking news that CBD – which helps to bring the endocannabinoid system out of deficiency and into balance – should show such promise as a therapeutic tool for those suffering from the terrible experience of a migraine.

The Color Cannabis brand to mainly focus on a premium user experience

Mr. Moon also noted that Color Cannabis is designed to inspire customers to embrace life and their cannabis experience in personal and unique ways. Aside from being available in the form of dried premium flower, the new WeedMD brand also hosts new product formats over the next few months.

WeedMD CEO Keith Merker stated that Color Cannabis’ goal is to grasp the progressive character, individuality, and imagination of cannabis users. The CEO noted that the goal of the brand is not to tell clients what they will feel but rather to experience the products for themselves. Merker also noted that the Color Cannabis launch represents a key milestone for the company.

WeedMD expects to juggle between the new adult cannabis brand and its medical cannabis pursuits. The company expects to produce about 150,000 kilograms through its 5.2 million square feet production capacity by 2020. The firm also expects to have enough room to handle production for medical cannabis, as well as recreational adult use. It plans to achieve this through its indoor and outdoor growth facilities.

The company recently announced a relationship with Florida based Eagle Hemp for an initial purchase order as well as the establishment of connections for more orders in the future. The company anticipates strong demand that includes compensation for more production of CBD oil as well as its bottling technology. The first order will bring the company significant revenue input at no associated costs to labeling, bottling, and shipping.

The company’s production facility and lab are currently operating well with two bottling machines in operation. The CEO said that once they distill the interest into purchase orders they will communicate to shareholders.
