A headache is an unpleasant pain in the head, neck or face that can cause feelings of pressure and aching. It is usually experienced as throbbing, constant, sharp or dull. The pain can range from mild to severe and occurs on one or both sides of the head. Some common affected areas include the forehead, temples and back of the neck. It can last anywhere from 30 minutes to a week. According to the Mayo Clinic, the most common type is a tension headache and its triggers include stress, muscle strain and anxiety.
Cluster headaches are severely painful and occur on one side of the head, usually in the form of “clusters” (bouts of frequent attack). Sinus forms co-occur with symptoms of infection like fever, stuffy nose, cough, congestion and facial pressure. Chiari headaches are severe and develop in 60 seconds or less, like a “thunderclap”. These can be indicative of a serious underlying medical condition and may require urgent medical care.
Migraine headaches can be severe and often have other symptoms in addition to head pain. Sufferers can experience symptoms such as visual auras (seeing spots or flashing lights), nausea and vomiting, temporary vision loss, sensitivity to light and/or sound, as well as pain behind one eye/ ear or in the temples.

THC products are psychoactive, causing one to become “high”. These are to be used with special caution in children, pets and persons prone to anxiety or stress. Depending on the unique situation, it may be appropriate to substitute THC with non-psychoactive THCA. CBN and 1:1 oils may also cause mild psychoactive effects.
However, if products are used correctly, it may be possible to avoid the psychoactive effect entirely. Should you feel uncomfortable or have any questions at any time, our trained team of staff are on standby to attend to your concerns.
