First, thanks to @Floridason who as suggest that I start a topic for this particular condition. and special thanks to @garrigan62 @MacGyverStoner @Dumme and certainly other’s one’s of my fellow grower’s, beginner’s and older’s, for helping me acquiring new growt knowledge.
Second, this topic is not intend to replace or subtitute any medical advise what so ever, and should be view as my personnal experience’s. I’m very close monitor by my family doctor and a neurologist in my on going and future experiences with the using of cannabinoids. And it’s definitely not a self diagnostic tool.
Hi, in this topic, i’m gone a explore, with you, and share my personnal experience with cannabis on managing my cluster headaches.
I have this condition for about 25 years. It first appear two weeks after a nasty car accident, my car was a total lost, but miraculstly leave me with only a major neck pain, i was very lucky to be in one piece.
I had those nasty headaches , on a regular base one time each and every years for about 10 years. Then, they suddently switch to a pattern of one crises every 6 month’s. Just to explain what my crises are : my headache have a during time of between 3-4 hours, a pause for about 1 hour and the headache return for another 3 -4 hours and it going like that for 2 to 4 days. It’s like a nightmare that you cannot woke up…
That’s not all, suddently, again, 5 years ago it switch to a pattern of 2 crises each month and did it for my pain capacity management and I search for a family doctor and was lucky to find one (i’m living in Québec, Canada were it’s very hard to find one). We (my family doctor and I) gone a several try and error until give it in the hand of a specialize neurologist.
My cluster headaches are what they calls pharmaceutical resistant, that’s why i’m trying cannabis and went to indoor growing for essentialy economical reasons.
My first succesful growt was AK-47 and it’s going fair well on managing the crises but no substancial difference with zolmitriptan. However it’s more natural and that what I personnaly searching for, alternative ways…
I’m more of the eddible type for the forward effect and the long lasting one. But find usefull to take a vaporize session for the immediate effects and the smooth transition.
Follow up are gone a be shorter, I think, and i wish, but sometimes, inspiration takes over
