I am from Colorado where pot is legal and it's around me and the community a lot. It seems like I get glutened everytime i smoke weed though. I am wondering if dispensaries use gloves, or maybe some of their employees eat a sandwich then trim weed and it gets cross contaminated? Cause I have been really careful to quit smoking weed with ppl when people also have beer together as a combo. Or maybe I should just quit smoking with others all together? because their mouths touch the pipe and maybe they had bread that morning for breakfast or something. Has anyone found a way around this?

Maybe get your own pipe and try that? It would remove one variable at least?

Yeah sharing the pipe would make you sick, they say kissing someone that had gluten in the last 24hours can trigger a reactions. I can imagine sharing a pipe with gluten eaters will be your issues.

On a side note, not sure when or how it developed, but I can not smoke straight weed, I tend to black out from even second hand pot smoke. Seems I am super sensitive to it smoked.  NOW I get a mellowed no give a care in the world feeling from stuff like hemp and CBD oil. I know with edibles (been over a year) I get a really nice effect with very small amounts.

Totally! i have tried that and I feel okay cause I clean my pipe and make sure my grinder or my hands don't have gluten. now my only worry is if people handled it w/o gloves or if that's an issue i guess. I could probably just get some new stuff from the dispenso and ask if they used gloves :)

Wow! you get glutened from just airbourne gluten in the mariujuana smoke?! so not even hotboxing can work haha. Yes gluten-free edibles would be a really good idea/alternative. The shitty thing is i just don't wanna throw away this whole eigth because of the paranoia that someone at the dispenso, or a friend handled it that touched bread or something beforehand :( :/

Im new to this!! finding out the ways i can get sick are endless

Yes, but you also have to keep things in proportion or you'd never leave the house :) There are sensible steps you can take to reduce risk, but you should be aiming to be in control of your gluten issue, not being controlled by it. Vigilance is healthy, paranoia not so much!

It may help if you tell us a little more about yourself and when you came to realise you had an issue with gluten? Have you been diagnosed with celiac? How long have you been gluten free? It can take quite some time to recover. Have you had any checks on your nutrient levels etc for any malabsorbtion related deficiencies etc? It may be for instance that some of the anxiety could be helped with a decent supplement. I'm finding magnesium helpful for example. There's some good info here for newcomers to the diet.

You could also take a little time off the marijuana to establish how that may affect you. It can have an impact on anxiety levels in itself. Not that I'm advocating abstinence or any moral disapproval. I smoked a lot in my teens and twenties. It was only after I found out exactly how gluten impacted on my mental state however that I realised I'd been in some way self medicating.

Not gluten I was told by a friend I was probably hyper sensitive to inhaled THC.  Something about the way inhaled vs consumed worked and some people being effected very differently. Been over a year since  I was around someone smoking it in the same building, Its not legal here for me anyway right now. Anyway point is inhaled  I AM JUST hyper sensitive to and go loopy then black out. consumed in very small amounts (1/4 of a muffin from a batch of 12 muffins using a dime bag micro ground and extracted into 1/4 cup coconut oil then added to the batch and slow and low cooked to keep it from oxidizing) tends to make me very......different I become overly social without a care, I do not stress about things, I just go with the flow and interact with everyone.....takes the awkward edge I normally feel away when working with people I do not know. I get a very similar effect from CBD oil, and eating a WHOLE bunch of hemp...but NO WHERE near as effective as those muffins.

Sorry you feel that way. It wasn't my intention to annoy you. 

There's a weird relation with smoking (not just weed) and celiac, you may want to read up on that a bit more: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11280554

Best of luck, hope you're soon feeling better.

Sometimes I find the discussions on this forum fascinating. People give good advice with the best of intentions and go out of their way to help others and yet their advice is hardly ever appreciated.

Rudeness like that (not your post) is why a lot of people have stopped trying to help.  We get so many people on here that are gluten-free for many different reasons, including Celiac and, my favorite - "my sister's hairdresser told her I should go gluten-free" - that asking if you have been tested is actually a normal question.  No one could tell if the OP has Celiac and for how long by the first post.

Interesting read. Never even thought of cc in (mary j). My state is not legal and as a young teen /20 something I like Ennis , just got loopy from being in the smoke of others. I am not as extreme as Ennis where I'd pass out but would feel close to it. Just wouldn't have to take it myself I got loopy from the fumes. Hmmm

After I delivered my son I had a bad reaction to one of the meds pain killer I think. I got so sick I told the nurse she must have given me too high a dose. One of the Dr's came in to check on me and joked and said nope the amount she gave was fine you're just a cheap date-one drink minimum kind of gal. Now I know must have been gluten filler eh? Another decade later until I joined this gluten-free club after many of my issues missed for decades.

As Karen g said many people come on here before to read up about the condition if they know someone etc, I came on years before as a guest as symptoms brought me here but it was years later I actually went gluten-free then gluten challenged and tested. As many know the path to diagnosis is throught with misses, confusion, and delays.

Lastly communication is hard in general amongst people look at social media. Some of the members particularly veterans can be direct , get to the point , or ask no holds barred in asking details as this is not their first rodeo. Some of the forum posts between veterans is like a Godzilla movie lol then they all respectfully agree to disagree based on perspectives and experiences they say no two celiacs the same.

When they realize their directness came across as hurtful the come back to soften the blow. Remember older celiacs had to be salmon swimming upstream as people told them their illness did not exist until science and medicine caught up with us. 

All good pioneers.

and poster it sounds like you answered and solved your own problem. Your push back is a great trait for this condition-you're set.

colorado gluten-free spiked treats might be a budding career for someone in CO.

Lol

happy  Friday everyone

From what I have seen advertised & have heard when I have been in Colorado - gluten-free edibles is a big deal!  Seems like lots of people at least dabble with gluten-free there.
