Spring—the time of itchy eyes and runny noses due to plant pollen is something in which approximately 20 percent of the population suffer from. Though cannabis may not be the first thing that comes to mind when managing hay fever, some seasonal allergy sufferers are adamant that it helps them cope with the fallout from bothersome symptoms and have turned to cannabis shops, mail order marijuana websites as well as online dispensaries in Canada to buy weed online to manage this twice annual plight.

Allergies are among the most common of chronic disorders and occurs when an individual’s immune system overreacts to the exposure of an allergen. The outright avoidance of all grass and tree pollen in the spring and fall is hardly feasible for most, so people turn to remedies such as decongestants, antihistamines and steroids as well as acupuncture, probiotics, saline nasal irrigation and butterbur extract for relief.

According to the science expert from the best online dispensary in Canada, cannabis may also ease the suffering of seasonal allergies such as relieving sinus headaches and helping to relax clenched jaws and other affected muscles. Nevertheless, you need to be mindful of your method of consumption during this time as smoking may not be the best option but rather edibles, either the kind you make at home or the type you get when you buy edibles online, or a soothing beverage such as tea or a cool refreshing infused drink may be a more practical choice. Cannabis infused coconut oil is a good idea because of its antimicrobial properties while cannabutter is not, as dairy products have a tendency of increasing mucous secretions which will only add to your misery.

The science geek from the best online dispensary in Canada also pointed out that CBD also helps prevent the immune system from overreacting to allergen exposure as it is an anti-inflammatory and will help prevent the swelling of the lining of the nose and protective layer of the eyes—no more watery eyes and feelings of being stuffed up. It is important to remember though that CBD is not a cure and its true value is in helping you feel more comfortable during the dreaded hay fever months, so it is still necessary to keep up with your regular allergy medication.

Cannabis is an excellent anti-inflammatory and can help open the sinus passageways, relieve nasal pressure, manage sinus pain and help induce an overall aura of calmness when those seasonal allergies have us at our wits end. Given the interest in recent years from those turning to cannabis at retail cannabis shops, mail order marijuana outlets as well as online dispensaries in Canada, it appears there may be some truth to the matter. Through avoiding pollen as such as possible in the spring and fall while using other remedies, cannabis may be the missing link when it comes to finding a some relief for allergy sufferers.
