Is This That Gritty Shite thats going around???

1,556 posts in this topic

Just found this on Erowid (http://www.erowid.org/ask/ask.cgi?ID=3100)

Seems like it is getting more and more common - never seen it myself until last week and I bought two different strains of bud off different people and both were cut with this shite. Brum is normally full of half decent weed but it seems that all anyone can get in any quantity at the moment is this. Most unfortunate as I'm not currently in a position to start growing again so have been forced into quitting for a bit.

Q: Is it true that some Dutch cannabis is cut with filler material in order to increase its weight and increase profits?

A: We recently heard about this for the first time. An Erowid crew member who was visiting the Netherlands had an interesting chat with a former coffee shop owner. He was told that the international demand for hydroponic "Buds from Holland" is enormous and that the shortage in the market is extreme. This seems to happen every year around this time but now the situation is more severe than ever.

He was told that in response to the shortage, vacuum sealed cannabis from the Netherlands is increasingly diluted with a still unidentified "greenish powder". According to the former coffee shop owner, the group of people who produce the adulterant have contacted most Dutch growshops already. The unknown powder is sold under the counter to growers.

The powder is supposed to be sprinkled on moist (not yet fully dried) cannabis. It absorbs moisture from the plant and then looks like THC crystals. After the buds and powder are fully dried they are vacuum-sealed, at which point it is difficult to detect that the filler material has been added. According to those who sell the material, it is possible to add 200 grams of the powder to a kilogram of cannabis.

The crew member was able to handle some of the mystery powder and view it under a microscope. It is described as looking like a bunch of tiny transparent soft crystals which swelled up and became perfectly round when water was added--as if it were a kind of powdered, water-absorbing gel. When the spheres were placed on a piece of tin foil and heated with a cigarette lighter they did not melt but burned.

We don't yet know what this material is, nor how widespread the problem is.

found this on icmag

This stuff is supposed to be all natural and is marketed as an additive to increase weight, and I think I'm going to puke, add flavor. It's called Brix Plus.

The first pic is a nomal bud, the second pic is a treated bud, the third pic is the residue sifted off the bud. Nasty huh, I highly recommend boycotting any shop that carries this shit. A lot of people are being ripped off world wide. Basementlighting, told me to F. O., in responce to an email I sent them asking that they boycott Brix and quit selling it. The manufacture's adda is:

http://www.accenthydroponics.com/pr..._plus_info1.htm.

I sent these guys this email:

Your product is bullshit you should go straight to hell for marketing a cut for pot. WTF??? Are you some kind of moron? I will not only boycott your products but I will boycott any company or website selling that bullshit. I hope your dick falls off, you greedy piece of shit.

No reply though.

Thanks for the warning bud, it was posted about ages ago on these boards, god knows what it is but why they added it is clear.

If you only look at it before buying it looks like some pretty nice weed, i did an ipa extraction on the dust, and that certianly isnt kosher, cheers again for the heads up ;):yahoo:
