Can smoking marijuana trigger abdominal migraines?

Yes. Smoking marijuana can cause unusual gastrointestinal symptoms including what some would consider to be abdominal migraines. If you notice this specifically after smoking marijuana, and it subsides, it could be that. However, if you have it other times, or if you have progressive abdominal pain with any systemic changes, you would need to consider being seen by a physician. Hope this helps!
