Recreational Drugs and Alcohol and Food Sensitivities

By Mikhaila

Hopefully, this one won’t get me in trouble but I’ll put it out there because I haven’t found any info on it anywhere else online. And I did google it when I was wondering.

Unfortunately, this inability to consume basically anything except for pure distilled alcohol, water, beef, and salt, also means I can’t do any fun drug.

About two months ago I had a terrible cold, and I can’t take any painkillers so I was laying there (basically dying) and figured I’d smoke some weed. I had already reacted to a puffer months before that but I figured I’d give the weed a go.

I had autoimmune symptoms for about 3 weeks after smoking that joint. They weren’t terrible like trying to reintroduce a new food, but it looks like I can’t inhale anything. Even marijuana. A vaporizer probably would have been a smarter idea but I didn’t have one on hand.

(UPDATE: not entirely sure if this was actually just a reaction to the cold. Colds give me flare ups so it could have been that, not the weed. Probably won’t test it out though.)

Other drugs:

I’m a pretty open individual and I’ve tried a lot of different recreational drugs, especially as a university student. Cocaine is also a no go. Obviously coke isn’t good for anyone but I can’t do any without three weeks of skin breakouts, joint pain, back pain, and brain fog. Not nearly as bad as a food introduction (funny eh?) but still not worth it at all. Haha, it’s also difficult to feel sorry for yourself if you’re reacting to cocaine… So I do not recommend.

It looks like the only substances I can abuse are bourbon, vodka, and silver tequila. And trust me, I’ve tested everything else out.

Just to reiterate:

Bourbon, vodka (unflavoured), and silver tequila are the only alcohols that don’t have added ingredients after distillation. Bourbon is stored in wood which gives it its flavour and colour but that doesn’t seem to bother me. (Hangover pills here that help you detoxify alcohol rapidly – no fillers in these pills).

Other whiskeys (like scotch) can have added caramel colouring. I react to this. So if you’re super sensitive those are three alcohols that are the least reactive. Silver tequila (gold tequila has added caramel colouring), bourbon, and unflavoured vodka.

Good luck out there. Don’t let anyone complain at you for trying to fix yourself. It’s hard enough as it is.

  1. That sucks. Ive smoked weed basically every day (I’m an artist so it’s ok ;)) since I’ve been on the carnivore diet and I’ve still experienced all the benefits of the diet, such as energy, clear skin, and fat loss. I did coke at comic con a few weeks ago but I was so hungry the next day from not eating that I cheated. I stay away from liquor and beer mostly, but it seems recreational drugs, for the most part agree with me while on the diet. I only do coke like once a year so next time I’ll prepare food beforehand 😉
    I think mushrooms might be the only rec drug that might throw me off as it’s actually a food… but technically a fungi, not a vegetable. If I encounter some and decide to take another trip I’ll report back.

  2. I had done DMT for the first time 2 weeks ago. I did it through a spiritual journey.

    my first trip everything was okay and then the second trip my immune system decided to have none of that and sent me into a high fever, puking and defecating. my pain levels for the next 4 days was nothing like I have never felt before with the Ankylosing Spondylitis that I have.

    Well I do it again? Yes but I won’t take as many heads so my immune system does not try to purge it again.

  3. For me (T2D) I avoid booze. Most have too much sugar and for me it is a health hit. Also I would be tempted to overdo it and then chow down a couple of pints of Ben and Jerrys with a large fry. I have not gone the pot route due to where I work they do not allow it and can do drug testing. (even though it is legal where I live)

  4. Totally unrelated to this post but I was wondering if normal drugstore makeup affects your skin. Nontoxic makeup is so expensive and I’m not sure if it’s worth the cost Do you use nontoxic makeup or is diet all that matters when it comes to clear skin?

  5. I found out that I am allergic to weed, along with blue agave and peanuts, among other things. I had a reaction of arthritis in my chest that put me in the hospital. Costochondritis they call it. On low carbs, the effects are aggravated, apparently. The doctor told me once a month at the most. Honestly, I’m not sure it’s worth the trouble, so I am pretty much weed free now.

    This is an important topic, in my opinion…
