    i have had two differant grades of this unfortunately and also got hit with brix weed once it always happens when i go to peeps who aint trusted, there seems to be a grade that feels like flour when crumbling and hardly any visible hairs small bud's and it really doesnt burn and a grittier type that doesnt look overly crystalized but u get white bits at the bottom of bags this is not brix brix makes the weed look shiny and gives u a lil headache ! stick to dealers who smoke weed hard and i promise you will not get this shit !! if half the dealers/friends i know got sold this they would kidnap the supplier lol but no seriously though if someone knows there weed they always try a joint before buying. ps is everyone still dry? been fine here for long time now prices a lil higher though

      i spread the word around, quite a few people got ripped off with that crap. There is a major sandweed callback at the moment

      Thanks for spreading the information Doc Leaf!
      Whats your plan about sharing this info with other sites? Were all in the same boat in that aspect.

          I'd urge everyone to spread knowledge, anyplace they can.

          Certain mainstream media outlets (in the UK) are circulating emails on the subject, asking them for information on the subject. So there is already some generated interest...

          Despite rumours that a percentage of this 'bogus skunk' had been incinerated by certain wholesale UK dealers, it would appear the same gear is now being pushed into markets beyond its normal range. It's likely that the same product will therefore remain in circulation over the next couple of months, here and there, until supply runs short.

          The brix thing is just a f*:(?!ng joke (and disgrace to us all)... Remember it's the twat at the shop that's selling this Brix stuff (not some unknown grow punk)! Next time I go visit they best hide it if they got it in stock, cause I'll trash the shop (or at least make some sound)... lol

          peace all

            Don't forget to post them a link to this thread and we can bash them in person... not really, I'm sure they'll understand that it's bad for business and withdraw the product of their own accord. If not then we'll all have to withdraw our custom :wink:

              Brix is not the only problem though, although more and more of that is appearing too , but other adulterants like the glass beads for blasting and reflective road marking
              I have sent samples of this material back to The Netherlands from which it came. An associate at Leiden University has studied this material for me and came to the following conclusions:

              1. Because of the current drought in the manufacture of cannabis in the UK, export from the NL has increased over 300% over the last few months.

              2. Plants are sprayed with this forgin material approximatly 1 week before harvest. This increases the weight by approximatly 200%!

              3. After drying, the cannabis is tumbled within a very fine filter which removes the active (Cannabis Crystals) and leaves the majority of this forgin material within the cannabis. This forgien material is used to shake
              the required part off the plant material.

              4. The adulterated plant material is then slightly compressed and imported to the UK - no where else will take it!

              5. The extracted resin is heavily compressed and sold at a great premium (usually to the British! - polom!)

              6. The adultirating material is available online - It is made from glass andis used to add reflectivity to road markings! See

              Smoking glass cannot be good!

              Eating this glass has already caused problems, I've chipped one of my teeth
              testing it!

                I'm aware that this Brix stuff is the lesser of many evils.

                However since it's openly available at certain hydroponic outlets, this is the first logical line of defence (attack).

                Clean up the industry and we'll clean up the plant.

                We know that Brix is a source of this type of adulteration, hence more people should be making efforts to withdraw its sale IMO.

                Brix is NOT 100% organic (it comes in a plastic bottle)...

                  Yea i second that Doc, it wont be easy tho, a quick google search reveals it is being sold in several places already:

                  http://www.a-zee-hydroponica.co.uk/hydrogarden.html

                  http://www.3countieshydroponics.co.u...ydrogarden.htm

                  http://www.elementshydroponics.com/c...rilla-gardener

                  As you said, we need to contact these retailers for them to withdraw the product, linking them to as much info about the contamination (and this thread) and why not attach a copy of the LCA poster aswell so they can hang it up in their shops...

                    well i not been about for a bit, hya again folks. This glass weed is shockin to me, not only did the uk go from a good selection of resins to mainly being only able to find crap soap bar(it is crap its full of crap) over the last 20years, the weed has gone from good quality to this glass shite.. and of course weed that is of low quality at high prices.. no wonder more n more are growin their own. Now some people can get hold of good resins still, tho its not really a norm, and some people deal with really good weed, but more n more thats becomming rare too, its a wake up call thats been coming i feel..
                    Take back the power!!! i sound like wolfy i know but its true, one of the few ways to get rid of the adulteration is to grow ya own, and in time u will be growin good quality weed, no glass , and if its not the most amazing weed at least its safe eh, this adulteration just for money is what is giving smokers and growers a bad name, (some do grow to sell on, and i am not sayin that all those people are to blame in fact the oppositie) Its simple down to a few people most likely, who are in it for the money not for the real reason most of are, and thats THE WEED.

                    There are so many great people who breed , make new flavours for us to taste , new lookin plants to grow and admire(yeah i like my plants when growing, like to see differences etc ) they enable us to buy seeds that have so many diff names n characteristics there is easily more than a few plants for everyones tastes, a thing to be celebrated, but not all grow their own, and still some like a smoke n rely on finding it with dealers.. and on the street level, its most likely these dealers are not the cause of adulteration, they just picked up from somewhere else, and in one point they should be sending it back, for their own rep.

                    I grow a little, sometimes shit happens in life n u have to go out n get some weed, i have come across this weed, fine powder that just drops off it all the time, crumbles down to dust almost when u crush, and when u do a teeth test its so gritty u wonder whats in it, i was given it by a friend(who incidently bought it from elsewhere, without really looking at it, and isnt really who i blame, as it was a shared deal..) and u can rightly say that person hasnt been back to that source.. the weed itself has some taste but it was overshadowed by the wierd taste that went along with it, dunno what to liken it too as i dont think i have tried smokin glass or sand or anyhting like that before but it aint weed taste..and this stuff crackles often.. almost like it has seeds in it, but u know there isnt.
                    luckily i only had a quarter, and after smokin a few n thinking this isnt right i put it aside, till i read this thread the other day.. i looked at it again and i instantly cld say its the glass/sand/whatever they puttin in it weed... it just wasnt right when i first saw n smoke it, and readin this thread confirmed it to me. i was waiting on some drying, and fancied a smoke, i shldve just waited i know mine doesnt have glass or this Brix stuff( dunno if thats the same thing or not, but i think it sounds like similar..)

                    The fact is most on these boards grow a little or maybe are thinking of doing.. let me tell those who are thinking of doing it..
                    Do it.. be safe take your precautions but do it.. put the weed in your own hands, u know where n what it is then, and u only pay for the equipment initially then every grow just for whatever u use plant foods soils etc.. lots lots lots cheaper in the long run i assure u, with no adulteration.
                    For those who do grow u dont need converting ..
                    Im sure most on these boards who read this thread have warned friends , thats a great thing, and should be done, i was thinking the weed was odd before i read the thread but once i had read it i told mates all over.

                    this is just the same as the crap soap bar full of adulterants. just the same ...low quality in some cases damaging to health, and most of all a rip off, a money makin ripp off.

                    Thanks guys for highlighting this issue to everyone its something we should take seriously

                        Warning issued over cannabis adulterated with glass beads


                        James Randerson, science correspondent
                        Friday January 12, 2007
                        The Guardian

                        Drug campaigners have warned that a batch of cannabis adulterated with tiny glass beads which they say could pose a risk to health has flooded the UK market. Anecdotal reports suggest it is being sold in almost every part of the country.

                        The charity Drugscope is issuing a warning. "We want to make people aware of it from a public health point of view. If you are smoking this stuff and taking it into your lungs it's not good news."

                        The fact that "grit weed", as it is being called, is so widespread suggests that contamination is happening at an early stage in the production process. "It seems to be being done on an industrial scale," said Harry Shapiro of Drugscope.

                        The dealers' motivation seems to be to bump up the weight of their product. They appear to be doing this by spraying plants with the reflective element from the paint used on road lines. The tiny reflective glass beads become imbedded in the leaves.

                        "It looks perfectly normal. In fact it looks good quality," said Derek Williams of UK Cannabis Internet Activists, which campaigns against cannabis prohibition.

                        Contributors to its internet forum have said the contaminated leaves can be identified by rubbing them between wetted fingers. The residue will feel gritty if chewed.

                        The first reports of grit weed circulated in late summer, but the groups have only recently received pictures of the beads taken with an electron microscope by an anonymous scientist. There have been rumours of users experiencing a tight chest for days after smoking grit weed, but a spokesperson for the British Thoracic Society said that the contamination was unlikely to be dangerous because the particles are too big to be inhaled into the lungs.

                        An analysis carried out by the French Observatory of Drugs and Drug Addiction found that the glass particles are between 0.02 and 0.3 millimetres across. But Richard Russell, a consultant at Imperial College London, said few particles above 0.015 millimetres would be able to pass into the lungs because they are too big.

                        "It is likely that they will deposit in the mouth or the throat," said Dr Russell. Here they would most likely pass harmlessly through the system. Using a filter would stop them entering the mouth.

                        Dr Russell said that smokers should be aware that cannabis smoke causes emphysema, lung inflammation and cancer. "You are likely to do more damage from the marijuana than these particles."

                        Mr Williams said that the widespread contamination highlighted the problems which stem from cannabis prohibition. "Cannabis is called a controlled drug, but there is no control over the supply side. It's a completely underground product," he said.
