Migraines can hamper productivity when they strike, but for the first time, Colorado researchers have proof that medical marijuana can help ease that dreadful pain.
"We were not expecting the decrease in frequency in migraine that we saw. It was pretty dramatic," said Dr. Sarah Anderson with Skaggs School of Pharmacy at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus.
Researchers at CU Anschutz looked at dozens of charts from patients treated at Gedde Whole Health, a private Colorado clinic that prescribes medical marijuana for a variety of ailments.
Patients can be hesitant to either report that they are using medical marijuana or even inquire about using it in the first place.
