Smoking or otherwise consuming cannabis can trigger a migraine for some people. If the marijuana itself does not trigger some people, the fact that the pupil is dilated and takes in an extreme amount of light can trigger a migraine in those who find different light sources to be a major trigger for them.

However, marijuana can help abort a migraine as well. And even if it does not abort a migraine completely, it does provide relief from the effects of nausea. Once again, though - where in the middle of a migraine attack most sufferers are extremely light sensitive, it is imperative that they protect the eye after consuming cannabis so that they don't increase their pain.
