Why does weed give me a sore throat and clogged nose?

    I'm not sure what it is but whenever I smoke any weed, my nose gets clogged, and my throat becomes sore. I get this from pretty much all the weed that I smoke and my friend says he gets the same problems as I do.

    I was thinking maybe it could be from dry weed/general dry climate. I live in Calgary and were known for having dry weather here and our weed tends to be dry a lot. Any thoughts?

    EDIT: Alright so I just read that breathing through the mouth with a stuffy nose could cause a sore throat, and I notice that I only get the sore throat after I sleep, where I have to breath through my mouth. So the only problem is that I get a stuffy nose.

    Sore Throat - Joint or Pipe smoking? Possibly hits are too big and too hot which irritating your throat. Smaller hits or go to bongs.

    Clogged Nose - Cotton Nose? Go to the store and buy breathing strips.

    You sucking hot smoke into your body, how do you expect it to react....:shrug:

    Don't worry about it. In your case you need to try some herbal cooking if you want to get some relief while still getting buzzed.....;)

    I've been using a pipe most of the time and it tends to hit pretty hard. Also, something I like to do is suck into my mouth and let it cool, then inhale it, so I could see that the smoke could possibly travel up my sinuses and into my nose. I guess I'll try to use my bubbler and with cold water more often. Thanks.

    Yes. I also forget about Bubblers. That's a good technique. No problem, glad to give you advice. If I have the knowledge I don't mind sharing it. Take care!

    i'm pretty sure everyone gets a stuffed nose. i get it bad, it's just the smoke around you and it's how your nose reacts. if you blow out a window, or somewhere u won't be breathing the smoke again, you should be able to breathe fine/better, works for me :D my eyes also get dry AF and i have contacts.

    no it's not just the smoke around you. I get a clogged nose and allergy symptoms even when I have edibles. These people don't know what they're talking about.
