Medical Marijuana Uses

Can Medical Marijuana treat my seasonal allergies?

Achoo! *Sniff sniff* Are you tired of being attacked by allergies every spring? Well, have no fear, because cannabis is here! Some of the powerful cannabinoids in cannabis have anti-inflammatory properties that can put a halt to those pesky allergies.

Some cannabinoids found in cannabis, such as THC and CBD, have anti-inflammatory properties that may help alleviate the symptoms of seasonal allergies, such as nasal congestion, inflammation, and itching. Additionally, some research suggests that cannabis may help reduce the production of histamine in the body, which is a major contributor to the allergic response.

In fact, a study published in the European Journal of Pharmacology in 2019 found that a synthetic cannabinoid was effective in reducing allergic responses in mice by reducing inflammation and histamine production. While this study used a synthetic cannabinoid, it suggests that there may be potential for natural cannabinoids found in cannabis to have similar effects.

By reducing histamine levels in your bod, those antibodies won’t be triggered, leaving you free to frolic in the flowers without worrying about sneezing your head off. So, take a toke, and say goodbye to the allergy woes.
