Hemp and Gluten wtf

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

As many know I love hemp, and I used to always suggest it to everyone for helping mood, getting fats, fiber, regulating oneself etc. Thing is starting around June I started getting a bit iffy from my jarrow hemp, numbness, dropping things, walking into stuff, burning myself and not realizing it, brain fog then constipation creeping in despite excessive amounts of magnesium citrate. So I started testing my foods and one of them the hemp protein came back positive....NOW i have had issues with Manitoba and nutiva awhile back and dropped them due to CC. I in fact tested both with nima and got positive, I sent the Manitoba in to GFWD for testing and it came back with 6ppm...tech gluten-free but it did the same thing, not enough to trigger vomiting but enough for the neurological symptoms and gluten ataxia (as my antibodies go up my immune system attacks my nervous system and brain not just my gut) to slowly start to show over a few days to a week.

Fast forward to now, I know Manitoba, Nutiva, and now Jarrow Hemp have CC issues, Mygerbs.com sales pure hemp seeds, and ground hemp that always test negative for gluten, I was recently informed of justhemp company that makes a supposedly gluten free hemp.....and it tested positive......OK what in the world is up with hemp now. It used to be such a minor issue with CC, now that there is a big boom in production seems more farmers are growing in it in rotation with wheat. I also read they will use the same harvesting and transport equipment to work with the hemp that they do wheat......I mean REALLY?! I know companies want the stuff cheap but they need to buy from dedicated hemp farmers, this CC issue is really throwing a wrench in my diet having problems finding a pure gluten-free source. Feels like a reversal of the whole CCed oat bull sh*t.

Update latest batches I got lab tested and results....explains why I have no immediate reaction to hemp but a slow onset of various symptoms, degrading health...then D for weeks even off them. Last one I was on the Just Hemp Foods one for about 2 weeks straight, The company assured me it was batched tested and 100% gluten free..... I still have D randomly over a week later.....Heck lol IF I still had insurances I could have called it a gluten challenge
Jarrow Hemp contained 11.2 PPM gluten
Manitobo hemp powder+fiber contained 6.8 PPM gluten
Just Hemp Foods protein contained 15.4 PPM gluten

OK 2 weeks after eating that 15.4ppm hemp for over a week straight 2 full on scoops a day.....I STILL have D, gas, nerve tweaks, with numbness, twitching......I have been off the stuff for 2 whole weeks.....I threw away the hand blender that was CCed as there was no way to clean around the shaft, got a new mixing cup, threw away the omelette maker and got a new one, and the only thing I could only wash like crazy and not toss that was exposed was my icecream maker but I cleaned the brushed aluminum in it like crazy, and rand it 3 times in the dishwasher....Do not think I am still getting CC.  I have not have a slow, long therm exposure like this in years....last year I had that issue with the major sudden CC that caused complete motor loss and fucked me up for a week....but this .....2 weeks?! This is maddening.....the symptoms are different a bit, it was a light long term exposure.....I hate this feeling of out of it numbness, and D every morning. Like it is not my body -_-
Prayers, thoughts, and opinions welcome.

Oh no-

 Ennis d and all the nerve tweaks / twitching/ numbness

my sympathies I barely have those symptoms in my rear view mirror now

good call on ditching that hand blender 

sometimes once that switch gets flipped even just cc it feels unrelenting . 

Imho you probably have been so careful that the 15 ppm is just a no go even if below 20 ppm

you healthy otherwise no viral or other issues stressing your system?

then that hemp canister go bye bye and likely no repeat even if Nima says below 20 and at 15 ppm

Ennis' immune system dictates all

In my thoughts and prayers

stay hydrated if you can , if I don't everything is worse 

Keep us posted and rest if you can

Yep making sure I am drinking a glass of liquid every few hours, added more minerals to my diet to keep them in check, upped my salt intake a bit, and I am trying to eat stuff to thicken my stool...ground flax seed mixed up with liquid to form flax eggs, coconut flour breads, adding both to my eggs.smoothies to thicken them up, trying to firm it up some. Funny but starting the ground flax, and coconut flour in my meals has changed the stool from liquid to cow pie but still dropping them 2-3times a day -_-. Just making sure I am eating bland/stevia sweet/herbed meals...I learned early last week spices are a NOO right now with extreme burn lol. Pea milk (ripple) and Nutritional yeast are higher in potassium so getting uped sources there and cutting back on my magnesium a bit and changed from citrate to glycinate for now til the stools firm back up.......To be honest, loose stools were great the first 2 days.....like always constipated....but now ....I sort of miss constipation lol.
