CBD – Help with allergies

25.01.2022 |

Temperatures are rising and nature is awakening. Spring marks the beginning of a very stressful time for many allergy sufferers, and many are looking for natural alternatives to minimize the need for chemical allergy medications. CBD, as a natural remedy, has been shown to improve the quality of life for allergy sufferers.

How does an allergy develop?

An allergy is an overreaction of the immune system to so-called allergens, such as animal dander or pollen. When these foreign substances enter the body through food or the respiratory tract, the body triggers an exaggerated defense reaction. The immune system releases histamines, which causes the unpleasant symptoms of an allergy: runny nose, sneezing, coughing, swollen and inflamed mucous membranes, itching, and irritated and watery eyes. Consequential diseases such as bronchial asthma can also result from an untreated allergy.

Conventional treatment methods of an allergy

As a rule, allergens are treated with antihistamines, which are supposed to curb the body’s histamine production and thus also the allergy symptoms. Even though many

antihistamines are available over-the-counter in pharmacies, sufferers must expect various side effects such as severe fatigue or headaches when taking them.

In addition to antihistamines, allergy sufferers also use nasal sprays more frequently in order to be able to sleep through the night in a relaxed manner. Often it becomes very difficult to do without them after a short time, so that a physical dependence develops. So these methods can serve mainly for short-term relief of symptoms.

Natural alternative CBD

CBD can ideally complement this and help support the body and especially the immune system during this intense time.

Taking CBD over a longer period of time does not result in physical dependence. It has an immune-strengthening effect and can thus significantly reduce the use of antihistamines and nasal sprays.

Alleviate symptoms with CBD

CBD’s multifaceted mode of action is based on its interaction with our endocannabinoid system. CBD can positively influence the function of the immune system as well as the nervous system, alleviate inflammation as well as general allergy symptoms.

In addition, the particularly anti-inflammatory effect of CBD can decongest irritated mucous membranes and clear the airways. Allergy sufferers can thus be relieved of the frequently occurring sore throat and blocked nose. Asthma patients may also find it easier to breathe again by taking CBD. If the allergy symptoms are only weakly pronounced, a freshly boiled CBD tea is recommended before going to bed.

Allergy sufferers also often complain of skin irritations and eczema, which are often accompanied by unpleasant itching and pain. By taking CBD oil, it is possible that the overreaction of the immune system is reduced. At the same time, by applying CBD creams or ointments, the skin can also be soothed from the outside and the itching can be relieved. Redness and irritation can also be contained by the anti-inflammatory properties of CBD. This can also have a positive effect on stress levels: When lowered by CBD’s calming and sleep-promoting properties, it significantly improves the quality of sleep for sufferers.

CBD against depressive moods

Many allergy sufferers not only experience physiological symptoms, but their sense of well-being is also affected. CBD can have a positive effect on hormone balance and thus help to relax the body. Its calming effect can help to effectively curb depressive moods as well as states of stress. Especially during the night hours, allergy sufferers can benefit from it through better and more restful sleep.

Conclusion: CBD can be an important support in the treatment of allergies

Especially in spring and summer, the suffering pressure for allergy sufferers is particularly high and those affected have to put up with a variety of physical as well as psychological complaints. CBD can effectively support the body in the treatment of allergy symptoms and thus significantly facilitate the everyday life of those affected.
