Sensitivity to smoke: For some reason, or there may be some adulterant in the pot. However, when someone gets a negative effect each time they use a drug, whether alcohol, pot or heroin, but they keep doing it, I have to wonder whether they have a significant drug problem. You should see your doctor for an examination, and should consider whether continuing smoking weed is good for both your body and your mind.

Food sensitivity?: Perhaps you have a food sensitivity to something. Ask you doc to consider giving you a food sensitivity blood test. It's quick and easy. Some foods in some folks can irritate or close the throat. Other situations are not as extreme but uncomfortable. The very best to you!
