Our immune response is incredibly complex with inputs going back to the womb and maybe even past generations!! Our allergic response has been primarily owned by our environment over 100's of thousands of years. You don't find much CBD in the wild although cannabis has been around for 1000's of years in ancient medicinal use (India and China traditions both have extensive use of it). On the safety profile of cannabidiol, there are no reported results for allergic reactions.
A good indication of an allergic response to a substance can be found it it's "side effects" profile. The four most common side effects are: Lower blood pressure Lightheadedness Dry mouth Drowsiness. The first two are related and point to research showing that CBD lowers blood pressure. Drowsiness is the opposite effect of an allergic response which is usually an anxious or heightened effect (as we know all too well). Remember that histamine is excitatory and actually battles GABA to control the sleep/wake cycle (see CBD boost GABA). Cannabidiol has a powerful anti-anxiety effect which you learn about at the CBD benefits for anxiety article here.
In fact, research is showing that cannabidiol has a powerful ANTI-histamine effect. There are studies showing that cannabidiol can significantly reduce the symptoms of allergic responses across different systems in the body but most importantly…. It helps to move the immune response from T1 to T2 which is directly tied to allergic responses. It's a big reason why your friend can have a cat but you can't. Again, if you're reading about allergies, check out the CBD and histamines article. That's why we deal with CBD isolate at IndigoNaturals. So many people with allergy or histamine issues are being "sold" on full-spectrum and feeling terrible from it. Stay away from hemp oil and/or as much "plant" material as you can. The CBD must absolutely be 3rd party tested free of: Solvents Heavy metals Pesticides THC (known allergen) Bacteria Mold. If the brand doesn't make this readily available, run. We actually test our CBD oils twice (once at the biomass and again for the finished product). Let's look at specific questions that come up with CBD and allergies. Yes but the same rules we discussed above hold true. It may rear its ugly head is specific areas (skin versus stomach versus sinuses, etc) but the chemical pathway is pretty similar. This may apply more for topical applications directly to the skin or it can be systemic (think of how poison oak moves around the body). You can test CBD oil directly on the skin to see how you react. We always recommend going slow when starting anyway. We've seen countless situations where a person has an allergic response to full-spectrum CBD or hemp oil which goes away with CBD Isolate. Half of them involve this positive difference in response. That's the primary reason we created IndigoNaturals. nearly full bottles of very big brands are lying around in a box somewhere. Every mammal has limbs composed of 1 large upper bone, connected to 2 lower limb bones, connected to a section of smaller "rock-line" bones and then 5 digits. It's the same blueprint in us, a bat, a horse, or a whale. The horse's hoof is one giant toenail (the other digits are shrunken). The bat's wing has elongated digits with the skin between for wings.
The whale has shrunken all of this inside of a flipper. Most multicellular creatures have an endocannabinoid system that CBD interacts with. Dogs and cats also have very similar pathways to us in terms of how CBD works. They share allergic responses as well since those pathways are the same although probably more robust in cats and dogs. The same rules above hold true for cats and dogs in terms of allergies to CBD in its different forms!
