The Top 6 Most Effective Headache Relief Tricks You Need To Try Now

Posted on February 26th, 2024 by cloudcity


If you suffer from debilitating headaches and migraines, we’ve got good news. Although these nuisances can be thoroughly distracting, several natural remedies can bring you the relief you crave. In this blog, we’re sharing six tricks for prompt headache relief. Let’s begin with the most overlooked and accessible way to remedy horrible headaches and migraines.

Proper Hydration

As cliche as this sounds, proper hydration comes with a host of health benefits, including headache relief. The key word here is proper.

To that end, this doesn’t mean you drink a glass of water and are magically infused with all the wonderful benefits of water. Proper hydration alludes to the science-backed recommendation of 15.5 cups of water per day for men, and 11.5 cups of water per day for women. Accordingly, this explains how millions of people are walking around dehydrated and have no idea. When your brain is not properly hydrated, your brain shrinks. This constriction puts pressure on your nerves, which produces pain and tension. Hence, your unexplained recurring headaches.


Did you know there are specific areas on your body that where pressure is applied, tension is released?

Try applying gentle pressure and massaging the following points for targeted headache relief:

  • The webbed area between your thumb and forefinger
  • The base of your skull
  • The surface between your eyebrows


Whether taken via edible, sublingual tincture, or applied topically, CBD is a powerful ingredient that brings almost instantaneous relief to headaches and migraines in various ways. Here’s how:

  • Vasodilation widens your blood vessels to increase blood flow, reducing the severity of the headache.
  • Anxiolytic effects promote relaxation, which can help to prevent and subdue headaches triggered by stress. Stress and anxiety are the number one cause of common headaches and migraines.
  • Relaxes muscles to release tension and modulate pain and other headache symptoms.
  • Anti-inflammatory properties travel directly through your body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS) to influence pain perception via CB1 and CB2 receptors.

Progressive Muscle Relaxation

Progressive Muscle Relaxation (PMR) is a therapeutic technique where you practice tensing and slowly relaxing one muscle group at a time. The great thing about PMR is that you can do it anywhere, anytime you have a migraine.

A kick of caffeine

Contrary to popular belief, a moderate dose of caffeine can be a powerful remedy for a rotten headache. Caffeine enhances the effects of other pain relievers, such as CBD, with its vasodilatory properties. With that said, there is a fine line when it comes to quantity. Be mindful of your caffeine intake when experiencing a bad headache, as too much can have the opposite effect.

Whether you prefer an oil you can apply to your temples or a warm cup of tea to sip on, peppermint is a refreshing way to alleviate a crippling headache. Its chilling properties help soothe the tension and discomfort and invite a sense of ease.

Similarly, inhaling the scent of lavender or putting it into a diffuser promotes calm and relaxation to sweeten the pot of relief.

Even when it seems like there’s no way out of a bad headache, know it doesn’t have to control you. The next time you need a dose of headache relief, experiment with these six simple tricks to release tension and get back to enjoying your day.
