Who would have thought that allergy to weed exists? Not many people, but the fact is that weed is becoming more and more popular and it is also being legalised in many places around the world. This is why the people are getting to know that his sort of allergies occur. In fact, Dr Purvi Parikh (immunologist of the Allergy and Asthma Network, a non-profit organisation) confirmed this hypothesis.
Symptoms of Cannabis Allergy
If allergic to the pollen of the plant or the smoke:
- Runny nose
- Inflammation of nasal passages
Upon touching the plant, some people have even developed:
- Hives, swelling and itching around the eyes
The pollen has also caused:
- Asthma (very, very rare)
Dr Purvi Parikh also stated that with more countries legalising weed, more people will be known to be allergic to weed. For example, you can be allergic to the plant, but you will not know, as this is not well known among professional doctors.
