I'm not sure how reputable this is, Journal and all, but it's an interesting thought.

Those of you whom partake, what might you have to say in response to this? I do find that as soon as I smoke, which is pretty regularly, that my allergies subside, or rather the intensity of them lowers. I know this because it is currently happening. I was going from a sniffling, itchy nose, sneezing, dry eyes state of frustration to a state of mild sniffling, clear breathing state of relaxation.

In fact, I'm gonna take my nap before work now. Perfect.

Cheers, Jared

P.S. If you do not partake, might I suggest you not partake in this thread, not because we don't value your opinion, but because if in any way you try to tell us--smokers on Paleohacks--that it's not healthy...well, that is kind of ironic. As smokers, especially those of us on Paleohacks, like to do our reading on the subject, we've probably read what you'll say and will ignore it. :) See what I did just there?

Also, my buddy somehow works out high, and then smokes again after. Says it helps his muscles relax and recover. hah. I say, "that's a good enough reason for me to smoke."

I was always afraid of the opposite being the truth, though it may be the actual smoking part that causes irritation or other allergies rather than the marijuana itself. Yet another argument for a vaporizer.

Interesting. Now I'm going to have to do a little more "research." :)

It definitely can alleviate the feeling of pain, after an injury, but speaking for myself I do not have any allergies so I can't comment there! But of course the inflammation that occurs with injury does seem to be remedied as referenced in the paper.
