However, when Johnson Grass flowers, it releases pollen into the air, which can be an allergen for certain individuals. This test is designed to identify whether a person has an allergy to Johnson Grass pollen by detecting specific Immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibodies in the blood that react to this pollen.
