What Are The Best MMJ Strains for Migraines and Headaches? – Ask Your Bud Tender


Medical marijuana comes in many different varieties, known as “strains.” Each strain is specially bred for certain qualities. For example, some strains are great for relaxing and dealing with anxiety. Others give you a mild high that still leaves you feeling energized and ready to go.

When it comes to different symptoms and medical conditions, some strains are better than others. The truth is, though, there are as many strains as there are patients. When you’re looking for the best strains for migraines, how do you know where to start?

Best Marijuana Strain for Migraines: 5 to Start With

PLPCC works every day, Monday through Sunday, selling the highest-quality medical cannabis in the Golden State. We partner with our patients to understand their needs and deliver. And one of the most common questions is about marijuana for headaches and migraines!

Try strains like these from our expansive menu of local and national favorites:

LA Kush 

LA Kush is known for its lemony aroma and a soft, long-lasting high that culminates in feelings of euphoria. It’s a type of indica, which produces a strong-all-over high affecting the body. It’s great for tension headaches, pain relief and anxiety.

Jupiter OG 

As a particularly potent strain of indica, Jupiter OG is dense and pungent. It’s an option you may want to work up to if it’s your first time using medical marijuana. It’s a preferred choice of those who want to relieve headaches and insomnia.


Platinum OG

This indica featuring plump, lime-green flowers is a trusted choice for all kinds of pain and anxiety relief. It starts off strong and settles into a lasting calm that can ward off headaches for many hours. It’s another good selection for evening use.


Willie is a kind of sativa, known for providing a manageable high and an extra energy boost. That makes sativa strains perfect for situations where you expect to be active afterwards. Willie is a good introductory sativa with all-around pleasant effects.

Cheese Head - PLPCC


Cheesehead is a hybrid strain intended to combine the best of indica and sativa. It has a relatively high THC content, so effects come on relatively quickly and last longer. With an amazing combination of relaxation and euphoria, it’s perfect for migraines, spasms and inflammation, among other things.
