Description
Abstract There were a total of 6 articles that met the inclusion criteria and 3 were by the same author.
Four articles were case reports. Among them there were a total of 4 patients with migraine
headaches (although it is unclear in 2 if these were actually migraine type headaches) who
reported relief of migraines with marijuana or dronabinol. Three individuals reported on set of
migraines upon stopping marijuana use and one reported on set of possible migraine with joint
use of marijuana and ectasy. There were two articles reporting a cross sectional study. One
appears to be a subset of the other but this is not clear. Neither directly addresses the clinical
question of effectiveness and both studies are of extremely low quality.
