strain allergy?

    I bought a new to me strain at a local dispensary and I've concluded that I must be allergic to it. The first time I had a reaction I thought I was just getting sick. But every time I've used this particular strain (only 3x) I end up with a headache which then spreads through my body so that end up hurting all over. It's not a muscle ache so much as a nerve ache.
    The most recent time I forgot that was the herb in my grinder until I started getting those symptoms.
    Has anyone heard of someone being allergic to only 1 strain?

    Perhaps a bug killing additive or plant food not properly purged?

    I have a friend that has had headaches from certain bags of weed. He's not sure if it was the particular batch or the growing methods or the specific strain, as his herb is from the black market and who knows what you are getting.

    I would take note of the strain and the genetics. If it's the strain, it would be as easy as avoiding it and the strains it comes from. If it is pesticides or the fertilizer for example, sticking to organically grown might be the solution.

    Thanks. It is from a dispensary and is organic. I'm going to note the lineage of this strain and stay away from it. I just looked on leafly and although strawberry cough is a very popular strain where I live and it's used for pain, anxiety and stress but negative side effects can be headache and anxiety. I must be more sensitive to the negative aspects.
