Cannabis Research: Allergies


Allergies happen because the immune system reacts to a foreign substance by creating antibodies. Even though the 'intruder' may be harmless, the immune recognizes the substance as harmful.

Since the early 1970’s, doctors have been investigating allergic reactions caused as a result of handling or consuming cannabis.
