Allergy to weed natural treatments

Societies are Starting to Realize the Potential of the Cannabis Plant

Allergies to seasonal pollen is extremely annoying, and everybody knows. According to the American College of Asthma, Allergy and Immunology, up to 50 million Americans suffer from moderate allergies every year.

You can be allergic to anything! But that doesn’t have to mean that you will choke and die from exposure to it like you’d recognize from someone with a peanut allergy. Some allergies may be very mild, but affect your health in ways that you can’t recognize. Over time, inflammation can cause more health problems.

Many people, like myself, believe that the common societal tradition to relax with your drug of choice doesn’t have to be with just alcohol. In fact, alcohol can be considered a hard drug due to its high dependency risks and long-term health problems. In addition to that, alcohol causes you to excrete nutrients from your cells. (Source)


A healthier replacement for a substance that helps you relax and feel better is marijuana. It’s starting to become recognized as such, as well as a medicine for many cancers, pain, inflammation, headaches, depression, headaches, etc.

I am glad that society is starting to realize that the use of the cannabis plant (for recreational use, medicinal use, and nutrition) can be very versatile and environmental.

Medicinal uses for cannabis or marijuana allergy relief


Do I Have an Allergy to Marijuana? Signs of Smoke Allergy

Many people smoke weed for the first time and get a strange feeling that most users don’t experience.  Sometimes the signs can be so subtle that you just get used to the uncomfortable feeling and don’t complain about it anymore.

In fact, it may even be possible that everyone is allergic to smoke to some extent. There’s simply thousands of substances you’re breathing in, and it’s not likely that the membranes of your lungs can handle it.

Symptoms of a marijuana smoke allergy include:

  • Pressure inside the throat and lungs
  • Itching of the skin
  • Allergic rhinitis: sneezing, runny nose, puffy face after smoking
  • Swelling of the hands and feet
  • Windpipe swelling and closing
  • Trouble breathing

This is just the actual smoke causing the allergic reaction. Smoke, in general, has many potential allergens that could cause harm in anybody!

Let’s get real though: Inhaling smoke is obviously very unhealthy no matter what smoke it is. It’s obviously carcinogenic and should consider not consuming it.

However, that doesn’t mean that you can’t smoke weed anymore. Wouldn’t that be depressing?

Natural Cannabis Allergy Treatment

The Best Marijuana Allergy Treatment

You probably guessed it: a vaporizer. Raw herbal vaporizers are nothing like vapes that contain nicotine juice–Not at all.

And there is no doubt that this method of consumption for weed is much healthier than smoking it. That’s because it doesn’t heat the bud up to combustion levels. This method of vaping for raw herbs doesn’t contain any propylene glycol or vegetable glycerin like vaping nicotine juice does—which is controversial for health.

Airizer is a very high-quality raw vaporizer company that doesn’t use its brand power to raise the prices on its products. The indoor volcano design is renowned to last for years without problems and being a great investment for your health and eventually your wallet.

The indoor desk models are very versatile and durable for your needs. I know a few models from my friends that say that these models last up to 10 long years. No need to buy anything to wrap your weed with and no pipes that require extensive cleaning and get increasingly more nasty over time.

Vaporizing marijuana is the best treatment for a smoke allergy that causes irritation and inflammation in your lungs. I would always recommend switching to vapes anyway because it’s way healthier.

I would always recommend Airizer to a friend because I trust them and their products. They don’t raise the prices on their excellent quality designs and they are all great price points.

What About an Actual Allergy to Cannabis?

It’s also possible to be allergic to the pollen in the cannabis plant. This is very similar to an allergy to a specific seasonal pollen, but you are burning it and ingesting it into your lungs.

Symptoms of marijuana allergy include:

  • Internal itching
  • Itching but not satisfying
  • Rash or hives anywhere on the body
  • Dry or scaly skin after smoking

It’s also very possible that marijuana pollen could be an airborne allergen. Some people could be sensitized to the cannabis pollen allergen when inhaling it. It could also be likely that hemp dust is irritating your lungs and causing irritation.

If your weed pollen allergy is airborne, you could have similar reactions like other pollens, like:

What About Strange Allergic Reactions to Marijuana Edibles?

Edibles are available for medicinal patients and recreational users as an alternative to consuming weed. These reactions are very rare, but what it can cause is swelling, rash, hives, and difficulty speaking. (Source)

It is also likely that you experience the same reactions from consuming hemp seeds, because they come from the same plant.

Cannabis allergy may also fit someone into oral allergy syndrome because some raw fruits and nuts cross-react with the pollen of the marijuana plant.

Those foods include: tomatoes, peaches, bananas, citrus, eggplant and almonds. These foods seem to contain proteins that are similar to cannabis.

Bottom Line for Marijuana Allergy

It’s really unfortunate if you have a severe allergy to marijuana because it’s probably very hard to treat and not many medicines are available for you yet. If you are wheezing heavily after smoking, it’s probably very uncomfortable and you should find an alternative that works for you.

For instance, if you have determined that you have an allergy to marijuana smoke, try to switch to a vaporizer or using edibles so that consumption of smoke is not needed. Obviously it is an investment to get one of these devices, but it is well worth it for your health.

  1. Anthony, I’m experiencing allergic reactions after smoking mainly effecting my face being itchy,red bumps, internal itching. I decided to avoid cannibas over all but in the meantime what can I do to help these symptoms go away. Will allergy medication work?

    1. Author

      I noticed that you used the word “smoke.” There are other ways to consume cannabis, like vaporizing, oil, edibles, etc. Do these other methods result in the same allergic reactions? Because as I’ve said, it could just be a smoke reaction. There are highly carcinogenic and irritating particles in smoke. It could be any one of those instead of the compounds in marijuana that can be enjoyable. Perhaps smoking cigarettes does the same thing to you?

  2. Anthony,are cbd akso csuing allergic reaction? There is no hemp pollen,can thst also cause allergies? Did not know abkut interaction with foods like tomatoes and bananas.
