Can Full Spectrum Hemp Oil Affect Your Allergy Symptoms?

Allergies can be a real pain. Allergies are a very common occurrence, and chances are, you’ve experienced some form of allergic reaction in your lifetime. Seasonal allergies, food + drug allergies, animal allergies, and mold allergies are just a few of the common allergy types. Recent studies may suggest that CBD has positive effects on allergic reactions. Continue reading to find out more about the effect full spectrum hemp oil has on allergy symptoms.

Traditional Treatment of Allergies & Common Symptoms

Traditionally, oral antihistamines are commonly used to treat allergy symptoms. Common symptoms of allergies include: 

  • Itchy, red watery eyes
  • sneezing
  • itchy or blocked nose
  • Shortness of breath or coughing
  • Red rashes that itch
  • Swollen lips, tongue, eyes or face 

While these antihistamines do take care of those pesky symptoms, they may have an effect on your energy levels. Side effects from antihistamines include:

  • Drowsiness
  • Blurred vision
  • Nausea
  • Confusion

How Does CBD Help?

CBD is a natural way to relieve your allergy symptoms without the unwanted side effects. 

Allergies are caused by an overactive immune system. The histamine levels in the body increase, causing stuffiness, coughing, sneezing, and overall discomfort. A 2005 study shows that CBD may potentially be effective in treating these symptoms while improving your allergies.

The study shows that full spectrum hemp oil helps prevent cells from releasing histamines. Remember, histamines are what makes allergies so unbearable. That means less itching, sneezing, coughing, blowing your nose, and other allergy-related issues. 

Another study in 2005 showed that the CBD cannabinoids block the activation of T-cells, which are cells that fight off disease by producing more antibodies and increasing response time. The activation of T-cells also leads to the creation of histamines, which means that the CBD can also further block the creation of allergy symptoms. 

Not only does CBD help block the release of T-cells and histamines, it also has been proven to reduce inflammation. Through its endocannabinoid system, CBD has been shown to relieve inflammation. Anyone with significant allergies knows that inflammation is one of the worst parts of having allergies. With Sprightly’s full spectrum hemp oil, those problems can now vanish!
