    With all the packaging tricks, fake terps, general bullshit weed (no competition) people are squeezing more money out of shit weed than ever and not needing to get weight through spraying..

    Its the wild west out here as always..

    I saw some gear sold as dutch lemon that was just critical mass sprayed with fake terps and put in a tin..

    I really really feel for the kids coming up man.
    Soon as those bottled terps started to appear more, I knew it was going to be trouble.

    There's certainly plenty of cowboys about that's for sure.

    As per usual, people are c**nts...

    i was searching for proof, actual pictures or test results, and i could not find enough examples to count on ONE hand
    maybe just maybe, its all not that bad
    The only videos I saw, were of people scratching the surface of music cd's with the grit weed.

    I've never seen any official tests done, it was pretty much ignored by the authorities, I think I once saw some local health warning posted online that was warning smokers that their herb could be tainted, but nothing on the news about it all.

    Please god not again, that was a fucked up time for herb smokers, it must of done some right damage to people.

    The amount of people I warned who just carried on smoking was crazy, some people just can't help themselves and pretended it wasn't happening.

    I was lucky to get a tip from a friend in Germany about a month before it started appearing in my area of the UK (can't remember the year? 2007?).
    They basically said the weight won't look right and it crunches in your mouth.

    This had come at an unfortunate time for us as our main grower had recently took his own life, and we had to start sourcing elsewhere.

    I actually gave up for a while until I knew the source and supply was known, so we knew it wasn't tainted.

    I heard all-sorts of stories about where it had originally started, supposedly some Dutch gangs spraying silica on the crop, but who knows?
    I'm sure loads of others started doing it once they knew about it, then I was hearing different variations like a sugar spray, that brix plant additive etc etc.

    I really hope this is not coming back as it was a really dark time and people's health is at risk.

    This is nasty when people do this.

    The biggest problem is bad Hasch, they mix in Sprice, Fuel and other bad stuff.

    How To Tell If Weed Is Laced With Glass

    For weed you suspect is laced with glass to make it look like it has more resinous trichomes, take out a bud and a CD you don’t care about. Rub the bud against the CD. If there’s glass in your weed, it will make unmistakable scratches on the CD’s surface.

    If you’ve never heard of CDs, or don’t have any, any soft, smooth plastic will do.


    How To Know If Your Weed Is Laced With Detergent

    Soap suds up. So drop a bud into a small amount of water and swish it around. If bubbles or a soapy film appear in the water, you’ve got bad tree.

    How To Tell If Weed Is Laced With Solvents or Other Chemicals

    Formaldehyde, fuel, and other chemical additives are usually flammable. To see if your weed has been laced with these substances, hold a bud over a flame and watch what happens.

    If it flashes up, sparks, pops or behaves unlike normal weed, throw it out along with the rest of the batch.

    General Laced Weed Symptoms
    In general, if you’ve smoked laced weed, you’re going to have an experience that doesn’t resemble a typical high produced by high quality, unadulterated cannabis.

    So look for things that don’t usually happen when you use cannabis. Excessive energy or agitation. Weird mood swings. Problems with breathing or with your heart rate. Dizziness and lack of coordination. Vomiting, diarrhea and other gastrointestinal distress.

    Consider Getting a Drug Testing Kit
    If you’re really concerned about laced weed, the best thing to do would be to find a new source for your cannabis.

    Try to buy from someone you trust or talk to someone who has procured cannabis from a source without issue multiple times.

    Sometimes, however, especially after a bad experience, you might want to know exactly what kind of drug your weed was laced with. In that case, it makes sense to use a drug testing kit.

    Home drug testing kits can be bought at affordable prices from many pharmacies and online retailers.

    Hopefully, you’ll never have to worry about laced weed or how to tell if weed is laced. As cannabis becomes more mainstream, legal and regulated, products will become safer and more consistent.

    I heard about this a while back, I grow my own, no worries, seriously, dealers are getting very shady and my bags were getting smaller. I have been growing for four years, the seed companies have been straight up, except one and I do not know if I can say who it is.

    I have a tale geordy land man turns up with jelly hash 4,000 a lump 10 in a bag 40 stashed this was 2009 . We all jumped 2 weeks later another man turns up with a truck load of weed , we jumped but as the people came we soon realized eveyone was sprayed up or greasy ash like wd40 . I heard they had tons stashed buried . This finished me and i have never dabbled again . Lost all profit . My theory is Albanian gangs working with the authoritys to flood Europe including uk . It must have fucked every one from the smoker to the ton buyers .

    Fucking grit weed - dark days indeed and the main reason I took to growing my own.

    I remember my mate who moved weight bringing in a sack of "white widow" import, gushing about the crystals on it. We ground some up and built a spliff and afterwards spent ages spinning the grinder on the table top - there were so many silica beads on the table it wouldn't stop rotating. Amazing, we thought, how much crystal is on this shit?!

    It wasn't til a year or so down the line that the grit weed hit the news and we realised what we'd been smoking. Neither me nor the dealer pal were happy - he now had to try to get uncontaminated product which meant wet Viet weed and a hard sell to folk that liked the artificial good looks of grit.

    Even now I still chew on a sugar leaf when I've bought a new bag just to make sure. I used to have a special grinder just for dealer bud that I could bin if I heard it scrape or it crunched on the bite. Luckily that one time was the only time I got the shit (there's something to be said for dealing with the Viets, they never sprayed around us, just sold the shit so wet it might as well still be in the pot 😂 )

    Hope to fuck rumours it's back are just that, but at least we have the net and social media to spread the word to the innocent.

    Ganja gu brah

    Sadly, yes. This was a good 15 years ago, but honest truth. So glad I know how to grow.

    Sand was one they used... and salt water sprayed on, wax , ... people are wankers sometimes.
    I once saw one guy covering a big pile of buds with after shave (he was a friend of someone I used to buy hash from) ... I politely asked what the fuck he was doing, and he said he was increasing the weight and smell... I told him he was a wrong un and he smiled and he went back to work.

    It's pretty crazy if you think about it.

    I once found a boot lace in a quarter pound of commercial. I wonder all the things human beings have stuffed inside of weed to make it heavier.
