Shea ·
I have full blown allergies to some fruits (apples, peaches, pears, plums, grapes) and I cannot eat them as juices, in jams, pies, marinades, or in wines or I get really ill-- at the very least vomiting, bad itching and redness, heat everywhere, just bad..

Re: Could I have a cannabis allergy?

Good enough reason for people to only go smoke it in a well ventilated location by themselves. Drives me crazy. Any cigarettes smoke or cannabis triggers my migraines and asthma. People unfortunately don’t understand manners or personal space.

@BenR Secondhand smoke from cigarettes, cannabis, and anything else that burns is indeed problematic for folks with asthma. If and when possible, those with a legal prescription could use other forms of marijuana (e.g. edibles) which would avoid the trigger (i.e. smoke) that affects so many people.

Re: Where should I move to help my allergies?

JR ·
@Grg , You're right on both accounts. The further a place is from a coast (or large lake), the less humid it's likely to be. Regarding the "honeymoon period", this is entirely possible. Many folks with asthma and/or allergies experience atopy . This can lead to developing allergies (that you didn't have before) to triggers in the new environment.
