    For most of us, spring weather can feel refreshing after a long winter. But unfortunately for allergy sufferers, all spring brings is a season of sneezing, wheezing, and feeling downright terrible.

    This is what happens when you’re allergic to marijuana

    This year, spring need not be feared. If you stock up on CBD now, you may be able to avoid some of your usual issues. It turns out, CBD may prevent your cells from releasing histamines, which means less sneezing, wheezing, all those other pesky symptoms.

    Here’s a look at what CBD can and can’t do for your spring allergies.

    CBD may help block histamines

    As mentioned above, CBD can help stop your mast cells (the ones that are responsible for allergic reactions) from releasing histamines. So normally, when you are allergic to something outside, like pollen or grass, your body’s immune system activates a chain reaction to release histamines as a form of protection. That unfortunately also results in lots of allergy symptoms. But Allergy medications act as antihistamines, and CBD does essentially the same thing. That means less sneezing, coughing, and watery eyes — even as pollen season gears up.

    CBD is anti-inflammatory

    What does inflammation have to do with allergies, you ask? Well, if you’re allergic to pollen, for example, being near it causes inflammation and swelling of the lining of your nose and the protective layer of your eyes. Thus, why you feel “stuffed up” and why your eyes are watering. CBD is anti-inflammatory, so it can help you get through the season unharmed.

    It can help with rashes and eczema

    This is a no brainer. Rashes and eczema due to allergies can be downright miserable, especially come T-shirt and tank top season. CBD calms skin, helps with itching, and reduces inflammation. That’s why you see it in so many topical products now. If you live with eczema, or experience rashes or itching due to seasonal weather, you’ll want to look into topical CBD cream to find some relief.

    It’s not a cure, though

    Remember, CBD may do a lot to ease your allergy symptoms. Unfortunately, it’s not a cure, though. Don’t go off your usual allergy medication and make sure to keep up with those allergy shots. Talk to your doctor if you aren’t sure what medications you’ll need to feel better.
