The analgesic property of cannabidiol(CBD) is widely accepted by scientists. It is also found to be highly effective in preventing and managing migraines as well as regular headaches. The assumed causes of migraine might be a deficiency of endocannabinoids. A study was conducted with 121 adult participants who were given a daily dose of CBD for a month. In it, 85% of the participants had fewer migraines and in 19.8% participants, it prevented their migraines. It was also found that inhaling had the fastest onset of CBD.
