How can CBD help with hay fever?admin
Finally spring again – the days are getting longer, the temperatures are slowly rising so that we no longer have to go out in the thickest winter parka, trees and flowers are blooming again. For those people who suffer from pollen allergies, the last point in particular is not necessarily a reason to be happy: constant sneezing, breathing difficulties and itchy, watery eyes spoil their mood and reduce their general well-being.
Can CBD Help Relieve Hay Fever Symptoms?
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol, CBD for short, is a healing active ingredient from the hemp plant. Studies and testimonials from consumers show that CBD has an analgesic, calming and anti-inflammatory effect, among other things. This natural active substance is not psychoactive, which means that it does not make you high and can be consumed legally.
CBD can have these advantages for pollen allergies:
1. CBD reduces the overreaction of the immune system
Hay fever as an allergic reaction is an overreaction of the immune system and throws it off balance. Mast cells release histamines. These are responsible for inflammatory reactions such as a runny nose or itchy eyes.
The CBD can inhibit the release of histamine and thus counteract the inflammatory response.
2. It helps you sleep better
With annoying allergy symptoms, it often makes it difficult to sleep. CBD has a calming effect and can improve sleep quality. Experience has shown that if we are more rested, the cold symptoms are also milder.
3. CBD reduces allergy-related stress
Hay fever is exhausting and permanently stresses our body. This affects the psyche and leads to upsets. CBD acts on the body’s cannabinoid receptors and improves the release of serotonin, which according to experience reports causes a mood-enhancing or mood-stabilizing reaction.
This in turn leads to generally improved well-being and increases stress resistance.
What to pay attention to?
In order to achieve an improvement in the symptoms of hay fever with the help of CBD, care should be taken to ensure that the product is a full extract, as the cannabinoids interact best with other active ingredients in the hemp plant.
Above all, if you suffer from a very severe allergy or asthma, you should of course not stop taking the medication on your own, but definitely talk to your doctor.
