CBD and Allergies

CBD and Allergies

Most everyone is familiar with the many allergies that stem from cedar, ragweed, mold, smoke, and even a cold front blowing in. These allergens trigger a reaction in the body that at times feels almost like flu-type symptoms.

Common Treatment Options for Allergies:

Medicines sold over the counter work by stopping the body from going into attack mode, and some people find these medicines very effective. Others do not. And sometimes these medicines work for a little while then suddenly stop being effective. Our bodies, like the weather, are constantly changing.

Reasons CBD Oil may be the best option:

CBD, or cannabidiol, is one of the about seventy active elements found in the hemp plant. It is well documented that CBD is a very potent bronchodilator and useful in the treatment of allergies.

Legal Requirements: The sale and use of CBD oil have been legalized in all 50 states of the U.S., and it is readily available for sale to people who are above the age of 18.

If you are outside of the USA, it is equally important to ask, is CBD legal in your country?

CBD Research:

Study Dudášová et al. 2013:  In a study with Guinea-pigs-  the inhalation of ovalbumin caused constriction of the airways and this was reduced by CBD

Conclusion: Scientists concluded that CBD “may have beneficial effects in the treatment of obstructive airway disorders.”

Study Liu et al. 2010:  According to research at the Taipei medical University, Taiwan, the administration of CBD reduced delayed-type hypersensitivity reactions in mice to the protein ovalbumin.

Conclusion: Scientists found out that CBD curbs delayedtype hypersensitivity reactions by suppressing the infiltration and functional activity of certain immune cells (T cells and macrophages) in the inflammatory site, suggesting a therapeutic potential for CBD for the treatment of type IV hypersensitivity," a certain type of allergic reaction.
