Smoking Marijuana Seems To Gives Me All The Gluten Symptoms
0

17 posts in this topic

Is that even possible? I didn't smoke in 3 days and today I did quite a little but not extra and I get all the cramps, asthma, spams as if I had been glutened. Could be food related, I also tried hemp protein today.

 

Regardless, I'll definitively have to give this a break, since I was good for 3 days I figured why not, bad idea.

I read before on here how it made someone's glutening symptoms better.  What was your source?  I heard on a podcast recently about a poisoning outbreak that came from marijuana that was spiked with manure.  Maybe it was was contaminated with gluten.  Spiked with flour.  I imagine flour is a lot less expensive than pot.  I know cocaine is often cut with stuff.  Another possibility is the rolling papers.  I have heard that the adhesive contains gluten, but that may be one of those myths.  You could try a pipe instead.

I was thinking through several things myself. I waited to post because I wasn't exactly at my best yesterday. First, I would question whether or not your source is pure. Second, I'm going to agree here that I've also heard (although have no proof one way or the other) that rolling papers can be a problem. A pipe or bong would alleviate this risk, as would contacting the rolling paper companies. The third thing that crossed my mind was that you did two things at more or less the same time. You smoked, and you added hemp. There is no real way to know which caused you problems. The hemp could have been through CC unless you sourced it to be gluten free hemp (I hope you aren't buying from bulk bins?) or it could simply be that at the moment you aren't able to handle it, or the amount of it you had. You could try smoking, and hemp independently and see how that goes. And, I know this is a real stretch, but if it isn't like 600 kinds of illegal where you are you could always just grow your own. Then you know you aren't getting wonky crap in your weed.

Its a source i been using for a long time not some street crap and it has given my symptoms and sometime not but more often it did give me symptoms. The hemp protein gave me stomach burn.

First, I hope you are vaporizing your 420 rather than rolling & smoking it.  Smoking creates too many toxins.  If you must do 420, make sure you drink extra water to hydrate.

 

While I had gluten enteropathy, I could not tolerate any intoxicant.  Alcohol (a depressant) was especially bad.  The two key factors in this, triggered by gluten, were: (1) hypothyroidism, and (2) hypoproteinemia.

Ya weed definitively make me sick now :/ The one thing I really really enjoyed more then food itself, this is just plain bad, It makes the right side of my guts spasms, I don't see how weed could be containing gluten, it isn't gridded stuff like coke it is pure fresh marijuana, you suggest I get a vaporizer? If so, which one would you recommend?

 

Edit: I looked them up, it really does seem like this would make sure the weed is pure, but a good vaporizer is like 600$ can I find something cheaper?

don't they make bongs anymore??  jeez........  

 

i seriously doubt something you're smoking can gluten you - 1, it's smoke and 2, it goes in your lungs, not your intestines.  and if you're eating it, stop it.  i know some people who just can't smoke weed - it makes them nauseas..  you don't *need* it, like food, so just quit it - plus it will save you some $$.

Just a thought....if I am remembering correctly you have been gluten-free for a month or two.  Perhaps your body is reacting differently to marijuana than it had in the past?  

 

There is a strong connection between the brain and the gut...would not surprise me if your tolerance to pot changes just as many have a change in the amount of alcohol or different food groups they can tolerate after removing gluten.

Since you pointed out that hemp made your stomach burn, and you are reacting poorly to smoking, it is entirely possible that you are simply reacting to the plant as a whole and are intolerant to it right now. Just as many here have had to give up a multitude of foods that may give us great pleasure to partake in, no, none of us need any of those things. If you choose to continue to partake of something that is obviously making you sick, that is your choice, although based on the fact that you are making other changes in your life to be a healthier person (being gluten free) it is a pretty poor one. Some people "outgrow" intolerances, others don't. Waiting and giving your body time to heal without giving it more things to fight will be the best thing to do for it right now.

Well weed is definitively out of the way until I heal, my question was rather if that person who mentioned the vaporizer felt it was something he needed at first or even after having healed.

Comparing pot to injurying urself... Ill definitively will find a way to ingest thc in me, just gotta find how. For now im waiting, most likely because my body need a break from being gluten damaged. Then try a vaporizer or cook it could work.

I don't mean to be dis respectful at all, I was just trying to say, if it bothers you stay away from it. Is it something you "Have to have?" then try it in different ways, but really if it gives you glutenized symptoms then just don't smoke it.

    • Hi Laurabella, Yes, you could have celiac disease!  It is important to keep eating gluten until all testing is completed, including an endoscopy with biopsy samples if the doctor recommends it.  The doctors usually do want the endoscopy.  The biopsy samples of the small intestine lining (4 to 6 samples) are checked for microscopic damage that indicates celiac disease.  Gall bladder problems can happen with celiac disease.  Your pain could also be from intestinal damage in any part of the small intestine. Some things you could try while you are waiting for your tests to be completed are stopping all dairy, and taking peppermint tea for gas in the stomach.  Celiac disease damage makes it hard to digest dairy sugar (lactose) and that can cause bloating and pain.  Constipation and diahrea are also possible fun symptoms. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Beachgrl, We have had members with microscopic colitis before, usually in addition to celiac disease.  Have you been tested for celiac disease?  The reason I ask is, it is much better to be tested for celiac before starting the gluten-free diet.  The primary tests for celiac are to detect antibodies to gliaden in the bloodstream.  Those antibodies start to decline when a person stops eating gluten, so the tests become useless. There is no reason a person can't have more than one digestive system disease.  So it is smart to be tested for celiac disease if you can get the testing arranged.  Any change in symptoms after stopping gluten is an indicator that gluten is causing a reaction of some kind.  It could be celiac, or it could be non-celiac gluten intolerance, (NCGI).  There aren't any reliable tests for NCGI yet. Welcome to the forum!
    • I have microscopic colitis. Having a bad flare of D.  On Budesonide for first time for this. It's helping some- only on it a week. Do you think gluten free would help even if tested negative a few years ago?  Was gluten free yesterday and no BM changes. Even had cramps this AM that wasn't really having before. Thank you!!
    • Do you want to tell us the name of it ans where it is located.  maybe someone else will be looking for a restaurant there. Also, it is very helpful if you go to Find me Gluten Free and review it.
    • Hi. Im currently under consultants at my hospital,  and have just been for a blood test to test for celiacs. My symptoms are.... Low weight (8stone and 5ft6tall) Joint pain,particularly my hips and lower back  Severe pain in my gall bladder area which happens spontaneously... Especially after eating foods containing gluten.  When i have foods with wheat in i pain in my  right side just under my bottom rib, i become a bit spaced out and cant focus on anything. Also get diahorrea aswell. I recently contracted C-Diff and was in hospital for 4 days very poorly. Im 29years old (female) and the doctors r trying to work out what is wrong with me. I have always struggled to gain weight,  even after having 2 children i am still only 8stone. I was just wondering if u think i could have celiacs?  The pain in my side has been on and off for 7years! And the last 3years its been severe. And it definitely comes on as soon as i have gluten/wheat.
