“Based on the traditional pain-relieving effect of Cannabis species an endogenous cannabinoid like system was discovered in the human body. Endocannabinoids have important role in the homeostasis of the body, such as stress response and mood control, feeding behaviour, energy balance and metabolism, immunological processes, and also play important role in controlling pain processing. Previous studies suggested that an endocannabinoid dysfunction, namely endocannabinoid deficit, might contribute to the development of migraine and its chronification. Although, the exact nature of the relationship between migraine and endocannabinoid system is not fully understood yet, in this brief review we summarise research results suggesting that the endocannabinoid system may be a potential drug target in the migraine therapy.”
