Yo, my name is Dan and let me tell ya, this weather is crazy! Florida is flooding and spring seems like it’s never gonna come. But even worse, the allergy season is upon us. It’s like the universe is playing a cruel joke on us, making us wear heavy jackets to dodge the wacky weather while we’re stuck with stuffy noses and runny eyes. But don’t worry fam, I gotchu. There are some ways to get through this rough transition.
First things first, make sure you ain’t got a cold. Colds and allergies are totally different things. A cold is caused by viruses, but allergies occur when your immune system reacts too much to an allergen. But sometimes, they can have similar symptoms like a runny nose or congestion. But if you’re feeling body aches and fever, that ain’t allergies. And those itchy eyes? That’s just allergies playing with ya.
But listen up, if you stock up on CBD now, it might save you from all those annoying symptoms. Turns out, CBD can prevent histamines from being released by your cells which means less sneezing and wheezing for you.
Let me break it down for you. CBD can help suppress your mast cells (the ones that are responsible for allergic reactions) from releasing histamines. When you’re allergic to something like pollen or grass, your immune system goes into overdrive and releases histamines as protection. Unfortunately, that also results in lots of allergy symptoms. But allergy medications act as antihistamines and CBD does the same thing which means less sneezing, coughing, watery eyes–even when pollen season is in full swing.
But wait, there’s more! CBD is anti-inflammatory too! You’re probably wondering what that has to do with allergies? Well, if you’re allergic to pollen or something else in the air, it causes inflammation and swelling in your nose or even your eyes. That’s why you feel so stuffed up and your eyes are watering. CBD can help reduce that inflammation so you can breathe easy.
And let’s not forget about those annoying rashes and eczema. It’s bad enough feeling stuffy, but now we have to deal with unsightly body blemishes too? No thanks. But don’t worry cuz CBD has got your back. It calms down your skin, relieves itching, and reduces inflammation. That’s why you see it in so many topical products nowadays. If you’re living with eczema or experience rashes or itching due to seasonal weather, then you’ll definitely want to try some CBD cream for some relief.
But hold up, before you go all in on the CBD train, let me remind ya that it ain’t a cure. Sorry fam, but don’t ditch your usual allergy medication just yet. And make sure you keep up with those allergy shots too! Talk to your doctor if you’re unsure what medications you need to feel better.
And don’t be falling for them myths about seasonal allergies either. Take trusted advice and know that cut flowers aren’t a trigger, local honey doesn’t fight off allergies, and rain doesn’t wash it all away.
So there you have it, folks! May you start breathing better this spring with a little help from our friend CBD.
