The answer may be simple.
People with chronic pain, people with allergies and people with autoimmune conditions are all more susceptible to allergies and inflammatory bowel diseases.
And, in a recent study, researchers at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore found that the chemical composition of cannabis can affect immune system function.
The study looked at the composition of the compounds in marijuana, its effects on immune system functions and how it might impact the immune system.
The researchers examined a sample of 1,637 people from the Johns Hopkins Health System, who were given marijuana by a trained health care provider.
They then examined the immune responses and markers of inflammation.
Researchers analyzed the people’s urine for the chemicals that are present in marijuana.
They found that, for example, there was more inflammation in people with a history of asthma.
What does this mean?
It means the people who are more sensitive to certain substances in marijuana are more likely to have a flare-up of symptoms.
The researchers said the finding could have implications for the treatment of chronic pain or allergy, but they said it didn’t necessarily mean that cannabis is the most effective medicine for chronic pain.
The report is the latest in a series of recent studies to highlight the effects of marijuana on the immune systems.
