What are the signs you might be allergic to marijuana or experiencing an allergic reaction to having been exposed to a cannabis product? This is usually determined by the route that cannabis has taken to get into your system. Was it a topical that was rubbed into the skin or a bit of flower that was ground up and smoked in a joint, pipe or bong? If you are feeling overwhelmed and too high and work yourself into a panic about the idea of having an allergic reaction to cannabis you can work yourself into a very unhealthy state of mind.
But that said there are some very clear telltale signs you can rely on that would suggest you are experiencing allergic to weed symptoms and are not just imagining things or being paranoid. Skin contact with an allergen will cause irritation, redness and possible inflammation of the skin tissue that would be very prevalent in extreme cases and hard to ignore or mistake for a trick of the mind. If you experience any of these symptoms after your skin has come into contact with cannabis flowers or a cannabis derived topical extract, cease use of the product immediately and consult a trained medical professional about your issue. Disregarding the warning signs your body sends you could cause you serious health complications down the line!
Other possible allergic reactions to cannabis contact or even smoking or ingesting the substance can be very similar to the kind of reactions you might experience from any other type of allergen you might encounter in the wild. These include symptoms like nasal drip, watery eyes, stuffy head or “hay fever” as it is unaffectionately often called. Though in this case you might be able to get away with calling it hemp fever! If you have started trying cannabis products recently and experience any of these symptoms consistently after use then cease your use immediately and consult with a trained medical professional about the issue.
So what should you do if you find yourself among the unlucky few who have a severe negative reaction to using cannabis products be it a physical or a mental one? Well the most surefire way to avoid future issues with bad reactions to a particular substance is to avoid it and sadly that is the most likely solution here.
