cannabis oil in straws

does anyone remember the cannabis oil that used to go about scotland in the mid 90s? it came in mcdonalds type juice straws sealed at both ends. it was around 95 then again 97/98.

we used to sit the straws unopened in a mug of boiling water to soften the oil right up then mix a straws worth with the tobacco from 10 fags. at the time it seemed like a good smoke, got me well stoned and was a welcome break from soapbar. more than likely this oil was low quality rubbish and definately is compared to the oils we see here on uk420 but at the time i knew no better and was over the moon when i used to get hold of this stuff.

now that i know how to make oils i suspect this stuff was a whole plant extract rather than a bud or trim extract. it was a green brown colour, didnt smell anywhere near as nice as qwiso or bho and was no where near as powerfull.

i remember the story we used to get told when the later batch hit the streets, it was a jumbled up story about the guy who made it being jailed and he had the oil stashed in a gas cylinder while he was in jail, then he sold it when he got out. i now think thats a bit of chinese whispers involving the process of making it, the gas or cylinder having something to do with the way it was made maybe :unsure:

anyone else remember this oil? or is it just something that was sold locally to me?

Always used to be in a single blister from Hedex aspirins (long oval pills rather than round). This was in the days when it was Class A. Very dark and sticky but hit the spot.

yeah the stuff i used to get was dark and sticky but it came in straws, half the length of a mcdonalds juice straw filled and sealed at both ends, at a guess i would say maybe 2 - 3 grams in each straw. i cant for the life of me remember how much i used to pay for it

Yeah, I remember these.. blue and white stripy straws with dark oil in. Prob early nineties for me. We'd warm it and draw a line of oil down the skins :skin_up:

Never had the straws but had a lot of the old school oil. Had a mate who used to bring it in from India, it'd come wrapped in thick plastic then taped up. You had to freeze it before you opened it then transfer it to a jar to melt.

Always used to get made into "wraps" of stiff plastic, like off VHS covers, where I was. Could be folded into a triangle or rectangle and folded in on itself to stop it splodging out in your pocket.

It was nice gear, tasted just like you'd expect liquid Indian hash should taste and got you mashed. :D

Don't remember straws (what a fuck about that must've been getting the stuff in there and getting it back out), I remember seeing it being sold in the plastic tubs that held rolls of camera film, the sort you'd take down to the chemist to have exposed (remember that?) Prior to the soapbar invasion when there was oil going around the hash was usually poor (in a time when hash was great)

damn man your right, i forgot about the camera spool tubs, that was the way we used to get it too before the straws. yeah i cant imagine how awkward it must have been trying to get the oil into the straws, getting it out wasnt a problem though, just snip the end and squeeze after warming the straw in hot water to soften it up

ha, i never thought of that :doh: , yeah i guess getting it into the straws would be easy, for some reason i always imagined small funnels to be involved. i never had any problems getting it out, hot water to soften it up and it almost poured out after that. the hard part was getting it off your hands and everything else it touched
