Can You Develop a Marijuana Allergy Over Time?
The simple answer is: no, not really.
It is not intelligent to say that you can develop an allergy to marijuana compounds. However, you might have an increased sensitivity to the irritants in smoke. If you are a smoker of marijuana, obviously the smoke particles will cause havoc on your health. And that shouldn’t be ignored or denied. (Source)
Conventional science will suggest that you can develop an allergy to anything, and while that may be true, it is unlikely that this is your case for marijuana in particular. But for smoke, that is a different story. Science has not proven that marijuana can be detrimental to your allergies, however smoke definitely can be.
So my Cannabis Allergy symptoms are from the smoke?
Well, the first sign that would answer your question is that you smoke the weed rather than vaporize it. Vaping marijuana is going to be the much healthier choice because there is much less combustion and smoke involved. Instead, marijuana vapor smoothly enters your lungs with few irritants. But the temperature of the vapor may also be harmful to your health, but that has little to do with allergies.
So if you have been searching this question because you have weird symptoms when you smoke weed, you should definitely try vaping weed because it eliminates smoke. If you still react to the marijuana vapor, it might have little to do with smoke and have to do with the actual cannabis itself.
Therefore, you may be one of those people who experiences an immune allergic reaction to marijuana compounds. The severity may mimic hay fever, or be similar to anaphylaxis and your throat closing up. Dying from marijuana allergy is super rare, but still could be a problem.
However, I think it is unlikely. If your situation is different, please tell me in the comments because I am interested. There seems to be little documentation on the effects of immune reactions and allergies with marijuana consumption. An allergy to smoking marijuana seems to pair with an allergy to consuming other hemp products like seeds.
