Can CBD Oil Help Me With My Migraines?
CBD Oil and Migraines
My name is David Farrell and I’m from Dallas, Texas.
WHAT LED YOU TO TAKE CBD OIL?
Really, it wasn’t necessarily directly for me, but it was more for my wife. She had been struggling with depression and anxiety for as long as I can remember. I mean, even before I met her, and she had been on doctor medication for months and years, and it was really causing some stressful times in our lives. And just being new married after five, six years, it was kind of tough.
And so, she decided to look into some stuff, found some CBD oil online and started taking it and she saw amazing results with it. And then I kind of knew with some of my back history with some medical issues, I knew it might work for me so I started taking it.
HOW HAS TAKING CBD HELPED YOU BOTH?
It helped her to just kind of relax and just not worry about the small stuff. She can just operate a little bit easier. It helps us in our conversations because we kind of understand what each other has been through. She’s been through a lot of anxiety and depression. I had brain surgery back in 2010. I dealt with migraine headaches from the age of three all the way to 26.
Not just any old migraine headache, but every four days, I’d have a major one for two weeks at a time. And so finally had surgery for that and dealt with all kinds of nerve issues and spine issues and things like that, and just a lot of neck pain. And so, when I started taking it, I started kind of realizing that my neck was moving… I wasn’t having so much, I guess kind of anxiety from having headaches as much and then I started having fewer and fewer headaches to where they’re fewer between them.
HAVE YOU TRIED OTHER BRANDS OF CBD?
Yeah, we’ve tried at least five, six different brands of CBD, we’ve tried anywhere from $150, $80 bottles down to $30 $40 bottles, you know and everything in between. So, we’ve been trying quite a bit for quite some time.
HOW DO THESE BRANDS COMPARE IN TASTE/QUALITY?
It really just kind of varies, some of the really inexpensive cheap ones just kind of have this dark brown, earthy taste to it, it’s not really enjoyable. Even if they advertise it as peppermint or some crazy cinnamon flavour it never really tastes like it. And then you try some that are touted like the best in the world, $180 a bottle for 30 millilitres or just like a one-ounce little bottle.
HOW DO YOU DETERMINE WHICH BRAND OF CBD YOU WILL CONTINUE TO BUY?
It really just kind of depended on how it worked for my wife, really. I dealt with headaches for so long, from 3 to 25 that I just got used to it with time so I’m not necessarily concerned directly with me, but it’s more or less with her and how that affects her.
So, we tried one brand for a long time and it worked for a little bit then we tried a different brand and I could tell that she was kind of struggling a little bit just sleeping more and not really wanting to go out as much. And just, you can kind of tell that her behaviour changes a little bit. So, we really kind of gauge the effectiveness on how she reacts.

HOW DO YOU DETERMINE THE DOSE OF CBD TO TAKE?
Obviously, every bottle pretty much says what the normal thing to take is. So some will say, take half the dropper, or the full dropper. And from what we’ve discovered, it really kind of depends on the person. You know, I’m not a huge person, but I’m a little bit bigger than her. So, I could probably take a little bit more, but it’s kind of a trial and error kind of thing for us.
We start with what the suggested amount is, and then we kind of see if we’re feeling kind of weird, we have weird dreams and that’s what some of the other stuff we found with some of the other brands that you take it for a couple of weeks, and all sudden you wake up in the middle of the night and you don’t know what’s going on, or you’re having some really weird dreams. And so that was some other things that just kind of let us figure out how much we need to take and what brand we really wanted to try.
ARE EITHER OF YOU WORRIED ABOUT TAKING A DRUG TEST?
For us no, not at all. I mean, I’ve had two since I started taking the CBD and I’ve never had any issues.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE BRAND OF CBD OIL?
We had a couple of CBD brands that we had tried that we really liked. And it was kind of hard to shift around. But when you kind of hear some different stories about one person getting a bottle and it’s great, and then the next bottle they get the consistency is just not there.
So, we really just kind of wanted to look around and got online and started reading a bunch of stories about other people and what they’ve taken. And Patriot Supreme screen popped up and we started looking at it.
Now I don’t have to worry about the headaches. When I get one, I don’t have to immediately go take medication, I know that I can just kind of relax for a few minutes and let the Patriot Supreme CBD oil kind of do what it’s supposed to do. And, you know, help with those kinds of situations.
WHO WOULD YOU RECOMMEND PATRIOT SUPREME TO?
Reall, anybody. You know my parents haven’t really taken it; my mom is going to start taking it. She dealt with fibromyalgia her whole life. I think it’s hard for me to remember but I was six years old so nobody really can remember their six-year-old age. But she almost died when I was six, she was really sick. And so, she’s dealt with a lot of stuff over her lifetime.
She has taken CBD oil before. And just when I spoke earlier, like the dream, she was one of those that kind of got some really kind of weird dreams… when she tried, and so if it’s good for me, and I feel comfortable recommending it to her, which I do, then that should speak pretty voluminous of the confidence in the product, because she’s dealt with a lot and I don’t want her to have any kind of issues that she would have again.
And so, if I’m willing to recommend it to my own parents, you know, my wife takes it. My wife works for a family that has a little girl that has a lot of disabilities and a lot of issues. And when she gets a little bit older, they’ll probably put her on it too because we’ve spoken so highly of it. And so, if it’s good for us, and it’s good for all medical stuff that I’ve had to deal with, my wife had to deal with and my mother has had to deal with. I think I’d recommend it to anybody.
