Can CBD Help Relieve Seasonal Allergies?

Spring has sprung-  and so have pesky seasonal allergies.

Experts have warned that allergy season will be far more intense this year as a result of our changing climate and growing pollen concentrations. “With a warmer winter comes a longer growing season for trees and grasses that produce pollen, meaning a higher concentration of pollen for us to deal with as it begins to bloom,” says Dr. Ahmed, an ENT doctor in at Houston Methodist Hospital in Texas.

Common seasonal allergy symptoms include:

  • Congestion

  • Runny nose
  • Coughing, and sneezing
  • Watery or swollen eyes
  • Itching
  • Rash or hives

While more research into the effects of CBD on allergies is needed, there has been promising evidence that CBD can help mitigate or eliminate certain allergic symptoms and reactions.

Congestion: Research has found that CBD helps prevent cells from releasing histamines. As a result, those who suffer from allergies can experience reduced congestion, coughing, sneezing, and itching as a result of taking CBD products such as gummies or oil.

Skin Rashes: CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties suggest that CBD when applied topically, can provide relief for certain allergy symptoms.  Studies suggest that CBD applied directly to the skin can help with itchiness, rashes, and other inflammatory conditions of the skin.
