The risk of obtaining contaminated cannabis is one of the most serious concerns when purchasing on the black market. After all, you can’t report the vendor to the cops! The dreaded “grit weed” has resurfaced in recent years. It’s a technique of tainting marijuana with debris in order to boost its weight. Unfortunately, smoking it may be detrimental to your health. Looking to try something new? Check out this.
What Is Grit Weed?
A type of contaminated marijuana known as “grit weed” is a specific name for it. Cannabis tainted with silica glass is known as grit weed. The dealer’s objective is to make the item heavier so that they may sell more items. It was a big problem in the United Kingdom a decade ago. Users discovered a simple technique to tell whether or not they had grit weed; they rubbed their buds against glass. If it scratched, they knew it was contaminated and should put it in the rubbish.
Occasionally, you’ll find weed with sand or sugar in it. It’s far superior than sprayed cannabis! What’s worse is that the process gives your marijuana a crystal covering. Another method of detecting whether or not you have silica-laced herb is to chew on a tiny nug. If the texture reminds you of sand, don’t smoke it!
Grit marijuana has been the subject of several horror stories. Users have reported losing their voice, coughing up blood, and going to the hospital in some cases. Even if you don’t experience such a significant loss of health, you may still need to visit numerous specialists. You can anticipate an expensive medical payment if it occurs in the United States.
Why might dealers do something so misguided? Of course, to make money! Black market vendors are unconcerned with the health of their clients. Many of them have mastered the art of making low-quality marijuana appear to be high-quality weed. UK dealers occasionally spray the plants with reflective paint used on road lines! One can easily imagine what breathing in this stuff does to one’s lungs!
Colour Is the Key
When it comes to comparing good weed to bad weed, one of the most apparent and immediate indicators of the quality of your cannabis is its appearance. What does excellent marijuana look like? Good looking marijuana should have additional orange, red or purple hues on the fine hairs or crystals and be properly cured, which means it will still appear vibrant and healthy while being dry enough to grind, burn, and smoke without losing all of the sticky wet softness within.
What does awful marijuana look like? If your buds are black or even brown and dry to the point of dusty, you’ve got a bag of terrible weed on your hands. Not only will the flavor, potency, and burn be unpleasant for anyone who smokes it, but there’s also a chance the cannabis has dangerous molds or pesticides in it that could cause long-term harm to your health and well-being – precisely the opposite of why many individuals use cannabis!
When it comes to any cannabis you believe may have been kept in storage for an extended period, be cautious. Toss out your bag and get some more if there’s any sign of mold or spoiling (mold appears as a white powdery mildew or as a coating of fuzzy white nastiness) on any part of the buds. Moldy weed is clearly not worth the risk to your health! Always avoid moldy marijuana at all costs!
What Are the Effects of Reggie Weed?
Most of the terpenes and cannabinoids responsible for producing the high or overall experience you get from cannabis have evaporated from the flower before it reaches you.
When smoked, very small amounts of THC remain in Reggie marijuana. The sensation would best be described as a brief and passing high. You may feel compelled to consume more after around 30 minutes, when the effects taper off sooner than expected, which will double or treble your cannabis usage compared to good quality and stored cannabis.
