One of the ways that CBD may help reduce inflammation is by preventing mast cells from releasing histamine into the blood stream. Because histamines are the chemicals which spur an inflammatory response, this can play a vital role in reducing inflammation.
This article describes an account of using CBD for this exact reason. CB1 receptors are found in our brain, according to a study by the Journal of Allergy and Immunology referenced in the article. CBD1 receptors may be useful in managing allergies and skin diseases (mainly rashes and eczema). The stimulation and inhibition of CB1 receptors were directly linked to mast cell activity.
Another study referenced by this article is by the Journal of Pharmacology and Therapeutics found that CBD reduced airway obstruction caused by raw egg whites. Ovalbumin, uncooked egg white, is a known mast cell trigger and histamine liberator. It is used in studies to cause inflammation and histamine release, with the hopes of finding how to reverse it. The Journal of Biochemistry found that cannabinoid stimulation of the CB1 receptor prevented mast cell degranulation – the process which releases histamine inflammation into the blood stream.
So, as with most research regarding CBD, hemp, and cannabis, this research and studies are anecdotal, and have not been tested on a large scale. The Journal of Endocrinology tells us that in diseases like asthma, arthritis, inflammatory bowel disorders (IBS), there is regular, unnecessary activation of mast cells.
The article concludes by suggesting talking with your doctor before using these products. The article suggests looking for organic, not highly refined products.
