Default feeling sick when i drink my homebrew..

I did a PM brew, its a wheat beer. Everytime I drink it, and not just me everyone who has tried it, we get sick.. The first beer is good, taste fine smells good but once you have beer 2 you start feeling nauseous.. Do you think its infected or have you ever experienced this?

How much THC was dissolved into it? Sounds like it creeps up and hits pretty hard. Just ride it out and listen to some Marley.

IMHO Yeast, unfermentable grains and non-filtered beer can do a number on your stomach. HB can take a little getting use to. Doesn't make it bad.

Agreed. I remember a transition period when I first started homebrewing. With me it was gas, lots of gas. Now that's no longer a problem. You're probably not used to consuming the yeast and your digestive system needs to adjust.

Yup. I just kept telling SWMBO my body would adjust. There were some sleepless nights. Yeesh!

I too would get headaches after drinking my first few home brews. I pour all mine into a glass and leave the last little bit in the bottle to prevent consuming all that yeast. I did get used to it and it is no longer a problem.

Perhaps you and your friends only drank rice beer, you're all celiacs, and now you're ingesting lots of gluten-rich malted grain beer?
Just lobbing guesses here...

Are you bottle conditioning and drinking the dregs? Just asking. Sometimes I pour the whole bottle into my glass, dregs and all, since yeast doesn't bother me and I'm curious as to what it does to the taste.
