Recently it came to my attention that I was not experiencing the severe allergy symptoms that I typically do during this time of year. In fact, I wasn’t experiencing any at all. My entire town has been in a haze due to the extreme pollen, and simply walking outside for a couple minutes is enough to have the lenses of your glasses covered in the yellow dust.
I didn’t initially know what to contribute this massive change to, so I began thinking of what I had changed since this time last year. While I knew the Transfer Factors were benefiting me, I knew the sudden change had to be from something I recently implemented. The only thing? CBD. I looked through a product page and saw others were experiencing the same; no seasonal allergies since taking CBD regularly.
Of course, I wanted to understand the mechanism. I realized it had to have something to do with the anti-inflammatory properties of the hemp plant that was decreasing my histamine reaction. A quick dive into some research showed me that this was, in fact, the largest factor. Specifically, this happens because the cannabinoids decrease the amount of antibodies that generate the inflammation allergy sufferers are familiar with. Because allergies are the result of an immune system overproducing antibodies, it makes perfect sense how the cannabinoids in my hemp oil are helping me, and many others. If you want to read a specific study about it, this may interest you.
I want to point out that proper hydration will decrease histamine reactions also, so drinking adequate water should always be high priority.

Researchers are starting to see how the Endocannabinoid system in human and animals regulate much of our Immune system. The allergy symptoms we experience such as runny or stuffy nose, coughing, sneezing, puffy eyes, and headaches, are all due to our Immune system’s response to the antigens we come into contact with through pollen. By regulating this system through the use of a CBD or Hemp oil, we are addressing the cause of our symptoms, not trying to cover them with anti-histamines that do nothing to improve the actual health of our bodies.
With anything, the results you experience will be in direct relation to the quality of the product. My recommendation is an Organic Hemp oil tincture, grown and produced by multi-generational farmers who have gone over and beyond to bring an excellent product to this booming market.
