CBD as a remedy for allergy symptoms

CBD Oil info

Could CBD be and be a potential relief for allergy sufferers who have no relief from traditional medicines? In this article, we’re going to explore what CBD is, and how it could be the next best allergy treatment!

What is an allergy in general?

An allergy is a negative reaction of our immune system to a substance that is normally harmless. Side effects resulting from an allergic reaction often vary in severity and may include any of the following symptoms:

  • sneezing
  • Rash
  • Itching
  • Cough
  • watery eyes
  • Stuffy nose / runny nose
  • Hives
  • facial pain
  • Chest tightness
  • Swelling of the lips, tongue, eyes, or face

There are only a few potential risks associated with allergies, of course, in some cases; if the allergy is incredibly severe, it can lead to anaphylaxis and death.

What is even more shocking is that many allergies can lead to chronic diseases that become much more serious for the patient, such as:

  • Asthma
  • COPD
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Rhinitis
  • Eczema

While there are many over-the-counter and prescription medications on the market to treat all of these common allergies, research has shown that CBD may be a more effective and safer option!

How does CBD work in dealing with allergy symptoms?

Our body has an endocannabinoid system that is responsible for maintaining balance throughout the body. This process is known as homeostasis and is the body’s regulation to maintain optimal health. ECS produces natural cannabinoids that help regulate a range of things, from appetite and mood to the sensation of pain!

When consuming CBD oil, the endocannabinoid system works in conjunction with the cannabinoids found in the oil to increase the production of endocannabinoids. This is the reason why CBD has proven effective in such a wide range of conditions.

Along with our ECS, we also have built-in cannabinoid receptors! When we consume cannabis, cannabinoids bind to receptors, which can cause various effects. Our CB1 and CB2 receptors are responsible for different things, for example, THC binds to our CB1 receptor, which is mainly located in the brain and is responsible for thoughts, feelings, memories – this is why there is a “euphoria” effect when we consume THC!

How can CBD help with allergies?

Studies have shown that CBD can prevent the release of histamine through mast cells. Mast cells produce histamines during inflammation or allergic reactions, and this is what causes the common symptoms we all know – like sneezing, coughing, watery eyes, etc.

Not only that, but CBD is a well-known anti-inflammatory that can prove invaluable during an allergic reaction as it can reduce swelling and irritation in the sufferer! It can also prevent many common side effects, as inflammation combined with elevated histamine levels can cause nasty symptoms!

The interaction of CBD with our ECS has been shown to reduce almost all of the most common side effects associated with an allergic reaction, such as the following:

  • Helps stop shrinking airways, making breathing easier
  • Opens the nasal passages
  • Reduces nasal pressure
  • Relieves congestion and mucus
  • Reduces pain
  • Induces calmness and sleep

Medical research on CBD

According to the Journal of Allergy and Immunology, CB1 receptor stimulation may be helpful in controlling allergies as well as rashes and eczema! This is because the CB1 receptor is heavily associated with mast cell activity.

An animal study published in 2013 showed the effect of CBD in reducing inflamed airways in guinea pigs with food allergies. In a study, guinea pigs were injected with raw egg whites, which resulted in a mast cell trigger and an increase in histamines. CBD was able to reduce airway obstruction and relax muscle tone, making it useful for treating obstructive airway disease.

It is from such studies that CBD has been proven to be an effective treatment for allergic conditions such as asthma and COPD!

CBD has also proven useful for skin allergies, as due to its immunosuppressive properties, the cannabinoid has the potential to reduce rashes and itching. A 2013 study found that CBD was effective in preventing inflammation and swelling, making it a promising anti-inflammatory for treating skin conditions resulting from allergic reactions!


When we look at the way CBD can control mast cells and release histamine throughout the body, it becomes clear that a cannabinoid can play a role in just about all allergies! If you suffer from any of the following, we suggest you try CBD:

  • hay fever
  • allergy to dust
  • Eczema
  • Asthma (due to allergies)
  • Allergy to pets
