How Does CBD Work to Combat Symptoms of Allergies?
Most people are well aware that CBD is an anti-inflammatory all-star. But how exactly does it work its magic to suppress allergic reactions in the body?
As the body tries to fight off irritants and allergens, it activates the immune system to remove these harmful agents. The immune system then triggers mast cells, which release inflammatory chemicals, like histamines. As a result, you may suffer from a range of adverse reactions, from a runny nose, to skin rashes, to sinus pain and pressure.
Based on research, CBD can suppress the immune system, calm mast cell activation, and reduce inflammatory chemical levels in the body, making it a promising treatment for seasonal allergies. CBD may also prevent the closing of airways, which can result in common allergy symptoms like coughing and difficulty breathing.
Remember that to get all these benefits, as well as relief from pain and pressure, you’ll want to use ingestible CBD oil from a tincture, taken sublingually (under the tongue).
