As I’m not in it for the high, my personal preference is to eliminate the psychoactive THC and go with a pure CBD oil or vapouriser. I’ve done both of those and am suitably impressed with the results and will continue looking for a customised option that’s organic, not highly refined and suitable for my needs. I’ll be sharing the info as soon as I’ve located one.
Authors of a study published in the journal Biochemistry found that cannabinoid stimulation of the CB1 receptor prevented mast cell degranulation, which is the process in which they release histamine inflammation into the blood stream.
Living in a country where cannabis is illegal? A study published in the Journal of Endocrinology tells us that unnecessary activation of mast cells is a bad thing that occurs regularly in inflammatory diseases like asthma, arthritis, inflammatory bowel disorders (IBS) and others. Many of us with histamine intolerance and mast cell activation commonly experience symptoms associated with these disorders and others, but rarely have positive test results for them. The study authors reviewed a number of cannabinoid-like compounds (meaning similar in structure but derived from other, presumably legal, sources) and found them to be possibly useful in the treatment of inflammatory disorders. Wikipedia tells us that cannabinoids are found in echinacea and other plants.
Research tells us that cannabidiol found in marijuana may help prevent mast cells from releasing histamine into the blood stream as well as generally preventing inflammation. Mast cells are a component of the white blood cell (immune) system. They contain histamine and other inflammatory agents. When stimulated by stress, allergens, bacteria, viruses and others, mast cells release histamine and other inflammation into the blood stream. When this is chronic we experience symptoms of excess histamine/inflammation, allergies, and other inflammatory disorders.

Your computer's time: .
Now….we’re all chemically and genetically different!
Interestingly enough, there are lots of us out there!
Most importantly, the type of CBD you take can make ALL the difference.
They even coined the term “Entourage Effect” to connote that the different cannabinoids (CBD’s chemical cousins from the hemp plant) and other substances work better together.
The common allergic reactions we see are a result of this chemical (and a few cousins) who are trying to get the outside actor back outside!
With T1 – something is wrong and we must attack!!
There’s been a painstaking period of learning what foods and substances send you into a tailspin.
The immune system has two default settings. T1 and T2.
