Can CBD oil cause Headaches?

CBD or Cannabidiol is extracted from the Marijuana plant and is a major compound that counts 40% part of the total extracted material. It’s majorly known to have analgesic or pain-relieving effects and anti-psychotic effects. magnolia wellness

The question could’ve answered more properly in the light of reference research articles, scientific evidence or approved mode of actions of the drug, but unfortunately, this CBD is still under examinations and there’s no complete scientific profile of this drug. Still some aspects are backed up by scientific evidence, and we would try our best to deliver the answer as briefly as possible.  

Before moving on, let’s understand what a headache actually is. Most commonly, headaches are explained as a pinching sensation of muscle contraction that induces pain throughout the muscles in your head. Typically, this can happen for a wide variety of different reasons. Headaches are so non-specific and un-predictory that just describing every pain in the head area as a headache is simply too vague. Headaches may have have been caused by inflammation in muscle and tissues.

Usually, most users never agree on the statement that it could cause a headache on use as it’s a strong analgesic. Natural pain-relieving properties of this CBD actually work quite amazingly well to combat headaches.

When you use cannabis in any form whether you smoke flowers, take CBD oil drops or rub topical dosage form onto your skin, the active cannabinoids in the plant start interacting with natural receptors in the ECS or Endocannabinoid system. As explained earlier, this system is responsible for pain, memory, immunity, and appetite, etc. When CBD enters the bloodstream or body via any means of ingestion, it immediately reaches the CB1 and CB2 receptors of the ECS system and binds here thus blocks the receptor and pain signals are no more received to produce a sense of pain. Considering this mode of action, it’s simple and easy to state that headaches cannot be produced when receptors are manipulated.

On the other hand, some users also complain about mild headache especially when they are new to the CBD oil intake or have any other underlying illness or physical manipulated value.  Or that can be just a simple responsive reaction of the human defense system against something new entering into the body. Or a change in the chemical setup of the body due to CBD intake can also cause a mild headache initially.

Thankfully, headaches as a stated side effect of CBD oil is a very rare thing to face and even if someone’s facing this, don’t worry; your body is just being adjusted to the new chemicals.

Thus, as a result of the discussion, what we have concluded is; in the case of headaches that may be due to the inflammation in tissues or muscles of the head and neck, CBD interacts with ECS receptors to either reverse neurochemical release back to appropriate normal levels, or reduce inflammation in acute muscles, tissues, and blood vessel networks that were inducing a headache.

Although, CBD can upset stomach or induce drowsiness but causing headache is quite an unexpected thing.
