If Celiacs smoke (ready-made cigarrettes) and have no complain for sure the problem of rolling papers (when somink rolling tobbacco) would be about the glue stripe - either cos you pass your tongue on it in order to seal, or/and cos you innale when you smoke it.. any further thoughs?

i'm Really interested in knowing more of this matter but found no easy anwser on the web even after digging for quite a while..

any more help on this topic would be appreciated as i suspect some naughty gluten is hidden behind every slim innofensive rolling paper..
:rolleyes:

Rizla papers are gluten-free. I switched to them after getting Gluten reactions from Zig-Zag's. I would recommend bringing up the gluten aspect of the paper, seeing as it took me a while to figure out thats what was doing it. I have found them in many tobacco stores and liqour stores, though I am on the west coast.

I'm going to go out on a big limb here. I smoke pot. I grew up in a society where it was totally acceptable, just like social drinking, and I personally believe its less harmful than drinking ( You don't get many angry pot smokers starting bar brawls, for one :P ), though I also drink.

I think judging people on smoking pot, especially since you don't know them, is like judging someone by the kind of car they drive. Its senseless. Oh, did I mention I support legalization. lol.

gillian502, I commend your concern for your friends, and I would totally bring it up, cause The last place I expected to be glutened from was that.

Any illegal pot is not regulated and could be laced with anything. I've witnessed a girl pass out cold after taking 3 hits. You just don't know what it's laced with or cross-contaminated with. Is it really worth the risk? It is a personal decision with possible legal ramifications.

Anything anyone hands you at a party or that you get from someone you don't know is a bad idea. I personally use medicinal grade and know my sources, so I feel pretty comfortable with what I get.
This is a big reason why I support legalizing it.
Personally, it helps me enourmously when I have glutened symptoms, with the pain, and it settles my stomach (its used with chemo patients to help with nausea).
Everything we do should be an informed choice. I don't think children or teens should do it, but I believe that used responsibly, as with all other things, it is a benefit.
For the record, I am also highly opposed to all other illegal substances ( and some legal ones).

Marijuana useage guide by Gus.

no worry about marijuana, it is gluten free. Hemp seeds do not contain any gluten and are a good substitute for flour.

Hemp flour contains major amino acids and oils and is incredibly good for you.

as for smoking marijuana it will not harm you unless you are predisposed to a SERIOUS mental illness in your family.

Keep in mind smoking too much marijuana can cause toxic psychosis which is a temporary form of insanity/psychosis which is not permanent.
Toxic Psychosis is indefinately an overdose and is reachable. It will not kill you, but it can cause disturbed thoughts and hallucinations visual and hearing.
To acheive toxic psychosis you would need to smoke past a threshold, a usual person who smokes it might smoke .5-1g a night, a person with an addiction might smoke 3g's to 7'gs, in this case long term use over a period of 6 months would be a build up to an episode of toxic psychosis.

Keep in mind if you do screw up, and smoke too much and the doctors are blabbing on about skitzophrenia.... do not take it to heart, toxic psychosis is misdiagnosed in about 80-90% of cases as the government does NOT provide enough information regarding it as they use the issue in itself as a scare campaign for marijuana related skitzophrenia, and or psychosis.

If you have a mental illness such as bipolar, or skitzophrenia (which is caused by a salt imbalance in the brain and you are prescribed lithium chloride) I DO NOT reccomend cannabis.

The best forms of cannabis are INDICA for medical applications, Indica cannabis has a lower rate of people developing a temporary form of toxic-psychosis, sativa on the otherhand is notorious for this.

If you live in a state which it is legal to purchase cannabis with a medical marijuana card the PARTICULAR strain you want is called

AFGHAN 1#

or any other PURE indica breeds.

If a pure indica strain is not available please ask the pharmacist for the next strongest indica dominant.

If you do not enjoy smoking it, I advise 'tinctures' or a vapourizer.

But Keep in mind Marijuana Smoke works completely differently to TOBACCO smoke, even though it might contain 'more' carcinogens amazingly there is less of a chance of developing lung related illnesses.

There is not a single case on earth of one person contracting lung cancer from smoking marijuana directly, and the DEA has failed to even provide this evidence when on request.

Keep in mind!

marijuana is not for everyone, it can cause panic attacks in some people particularly the sativa strains.

IF YOU SMOKE IT,

DO NOT USE ROLLING PAPER... the GLUE CONTAINS GLUTEN

I suggest smoking it through a 'perculated bong' made entirely out of glass.

Many people do not understand the difference between smoking it and vapourising it.

A) vapourisation takes longer, and is less narcotic in terms of pain releif but lasts longer (preferable if you need to work or study)
B) Smoking the effects are felt within 2-3 minutes and there is no waiting period in regards to use as it is a combusted material.
C) The effects of a vapouriser are different, more mental than physical and is NOT reccomended for pain releif, it also costs more to use.
D) Smoking generally means you use less, even though 'technically' by vapourising the material you get more THC, BUT the problem is there that the vapours do not go as deep as smoke.

In my opinion I would suggest smoking in fact or eating it.

Vapourisers are only good for using pure straight hash.

Laura in regards to laced cannabis, this is a myth in 99% of all grass you will ever smoke, in fact it would cost drug dealers MORE money in order for them to lace your weed and selling it at the average going price of the market they would in fact loose money.

If you saw a girl pass out after taking 3 hits it could be in fact a very strong strain of cannabis, the usual strength is rate at approximately 10%, and some strains even go as far as 22%. Ed Rosenthal though was caught with plants though at 30% THC which is probably the strongest known to humankind and in my opinion downright stupid.

So depending on the strength/potency of the strain it also depends on how much you can smoke.

ON THE OTHERHAND the 1% of grass floating around can be laced... most of the time when you do come across this it is laced with speed, or MDMA powder. You will hear myths about growers spraying their crops with morphine.... you can thank the DEA for that myth as 1 bag of morphine would be about $10,000, and the entire value of the crop.

It is just not viable for people to lace their product.

If you are concerned about smoking laced pot, the taste of a 'snow cone' is generally a banana type like flavour, and I advise that if you taste that in the smoke SPIT IT OUT.

I looked some stuff up so I'm going to go ahead and answer this question,

in terms of the paper used for rolling papers there are 3 possible ingredients:

1. Wood pulp
2. hemp flax
3. rice straw

Wood pulp does contains small amounts of gluten. Hemp flax does not. Rice straw seemed to be okay.

Onto the next ingredient. Glue or adhesive. It is possible that gluten can be present within the glue used for adhesive. Most adhesive at that level contain gluten, for instance envelope glue does contain gluten.

So can someone ingest gluten through smoke? Yes however during the energy exchange involved with being on fire some of that gluten will have broken down.

So yes if they are smoking from cigarette level rolling papers they may be ingesting small amount of gluten.

However there are brands of rolling paper made that actually don't make their paper out of gluten containing products. There all also many other ways to smoke marijuana that does not involve inhaling paper smoke for instance, pipe, bong, ingestion, etc.

Vaporizers ask that the only thing the user actually inhales into their body is water, and therefore would be the healthiest option for the consumption of marijuana, a substance that is much safer to a celiac and non-celiac, than alcohol.

So it really depends if these 2 people are being intelligent about their choice. If you know for a fact that they are not taking this into account maybe you should bring it up to them. Vaporizers are getting pretty cheap and mobile.

Envelope glues gluten free. This is an old myth that just keeps circulating.

I've used marijuana as I have to stay away from gluten and noticed about the rolling paper as well, it's not easy where I live, but do have to use gluten free rolling paper. The herb helps and don't bother me in any way of being gluten free. My fav RP has to be Skunkalicious and Juicy Jays

I'm sure some "smokers" would quit if the felt they "needed" to but you couldnt say that they would because we don't personally know everyone. If we aren't judging then we can't just catergorize smokers, drinkers and alike opposed to non-smokers and drinkers, there is no one size fits all here. I do understand why the observation arises that they may not care, because it is a drug and it isn't good for you to smoke anything, natural or otherwise. That being said this isn't always used illegally I have a family member with MS who gets it medically, I know people who abuse it and I know people that are very health conscience that do. I do not and would not, I don't feel it sets a good example to my children. I always say they should put Marijauna right up there with religion and politics lol everyone seems to get defensive even if they've never had any experience with it. Lets just remember that one person reason for doing something could be totally different for some one else and just because some has different opinions than ours doesn't make them wrong. If these girls are wondering about a glutening from the papers or glue on the papers maybe they could contact the company of the kind they use. I'm sure if there is any info on the pack you would have a hard time knowing what the ingredients are. There should be company numbers or web address.

Just an FYI - most of these posts are almost 4 years old. Actually, the first ones are 7 years old.
