Choosing The Right CBD for Your Best Relief
Ahhhh the beauty of spring! A time of warmth, renewal, watery eyes, sneezing, and itchy skin.
Seasonal allergies often ramp up in the spring. When this happens, your immune system is responding to a substance it doesn’t like. Inflammation results, along with other allergy symptoms. CBD is known to boost your immune system and reduce inflammation. With that in mind, it makes sense that CBD is a natural way to treat your allergies. The trick is finding the right CBD product and dose that will work best.
At TerraSol Dispensary, we are certified CBD educators. You will also find a vast array of CBD products online and in our Menomonee Falls store. That said, it is our job to help you identify the best CBD product for your health concerns, and allergies are one of them.
What Are Seasonal Allergies and How Will CBD Help?
When you experience allergy symptoms during a certain time of year, this is a “seasonal allergy”.
In the spring, plants are growing, flowers are blooming, and pollen is in the air. At the same time, you may find yourself sneezing indoors. A winter’s worth of dust or mold has accumulated in your home ventilation system. The first time you turn on your air conditioner, you’ll be breathing it in.
In both cases, your immune system is overreacting to what it considers a foreign invader. An army of natural chemicals, including histamine, is released to keep the foreign substance in check. This flood of chemicals increases blood flow to the area, causing inflammation and allergy symptoms.
To understand how CBD helps, let’s start with the endocannabinoid system or ECS. This system helps us achieve homeostasis or good health, and cannabinoids are an essential element. Our bodies naturally make cannabinoids. They are also found in the cannabis plant, and CBD is one of them. That said when you take CBD, you are fortifying the very system which helps to regulate your health.
Finding The Right CBD Product for Your Allergy Symptoms
Your allergies may be triggered by pollen, dust, pets, insect bites, mold, and the list goes on. At the same time, there is a long list of various symptoms.
- Coughing, sneezing, or a runny nose
- Watery, swollen eyes
- Breathing problems
- Stomach issues
Topical creams or ointments containing CBD are a good place to start for rashes and skin inflammation. You may want to try CBD extract, edibles, or a nasal spray for hay fever. The skin inside of your nose is thin, allowing the CBD easy entry to your blood system. This way, it gets to work faster. Getting the right dose is important, as well. That is why it is important to consult with a CBD educator or health care professional.
Broad Or Full-Spectrum CBD For Allergy Relief
There are three types of CBD.
- Full-spectrum CBD uses all extracts from the cannabis plant. This includes CBD, as well as other cannabinoids like flavonoids, and essential oils. It will also contain 0.3% THC or less, which is a very low concentration.
- Broad-spectrum CBD contains no THC but does include other cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant.
- CBD isolate is pure CBD without any other elements from the cannabis plant.
There is some evidence to suggest that broad-spectrum or full-spectrum CBD will produce an “Entourage Effect” or best benefits.
