I'm a marijuana grower, been growing since 2011.

It's all great except: My wife is HIGHLY allergic to Cannabis, and it seems to be getting worse. Her symptoms are muscle contractions. The few times this has happened I have literally lain next to her and let her squeeze my arms, legs, whatever she can get her arms or legs around and have the bruises to show for it. I wish I knew what was going on. Any other stories like this or advice? Much appreciated.

Maybe it's not that unusual:

There are more sites on this.

This is one that maybe grape seed extract would counter but I have no idea IF that could be the case. It is a weed/plant and GSE helps with allergies to a lot.

I'm curious -- is this your profession? Do you raise for your use only? Does your wife use MJ? Is this something new? Since you are so heavily exposed in the growing it's on your body all the time.

It's legal in Oregon to grow plants. I typically do a summer grow outside, and a winter grow inside using High Pressure Sodium lights. I only grow for myself and usually do 2 plants at a time.

My wife has never used marijuana in her life, but I can't have any product in the house at all. She even gets a whiff, her nose wrinkles up and she starts to hyperventilate, kind of like a panic attack. I don't ever want her to be affected by my use. I just have to be careful!

This sounds too serious for your wife's health.

Oh it is! Most of my consumption is edibles anyway, so she doesn't have to deal with any smoke. I've seen first hand the results of her exposure to pot and it's not good!

That doesn't sound like an allergic reaction.

So this just happens if she consumes it? Then she should stop.
