Hard to know without seeing it, but that doesn't sound like that's a truss rod issue. At a point, the truss rod can't be loosened anymore, and you would've know if you got there. Do you actually see the strings contacting the first fret? Do they buzz when they're open, or only when you play at the first fret?
One possibility is that the fret is too high, in which case you could see it lifting at the edges.
More likely, it sounds like the nut is too low, or the grooves for strings 1 and 6 are too deep, with the same outcome. To raise the nut, you could put a shim (usually the width of a business card is fine) under the nut. If the grooves are too deep, you can raise them slightly using a filler made of white glue and sawdust.
