False ragweed grows almost over all the continental United States. Related species are found in Mexico, Hawaii and Australia. False ragweed is considered to be a major source of pollen allergy in certain areas of the USA where the plant is common.

Asthma, allergic rhinitis and allergic conjunctivitis, similar to sensitisation from other Ragweeds, occur in sensitised individuals. Symptoms may be elicited either due to sensitisation to this species, or due to cross-reactive mechanisms with other members of the Ragweed genus. Copyright Copyright © 2006 Phadia AB.
