Hi all I used to do a bit of btc mining sometime ago with an old pc and a couple extra graphics cards, madeareasonable amount doing it just wondered if anyone else still did it and if so is it still profitable? and what set up do you use?
Hey buds! I thought it would be cool to start a thread with those who like to keep up to date with crypto. If we use our community on here to inform each other of possible good investments in the right places we could work as a team to share knowledge.
Curious to know who has been keeping up to date with what crypto these days, whats the most exciting tech at the minute?
I have a few diff coins from way back like ltc, eth, btc and golem.
What are ones to watch i'm out of the loop! I will record my findings if i dont get a response lol
Mate. That is fucking impressive. Fair play. Im not a huge gamer anymore as I have a 5 year old too entertain. But there is nothing wrong with gaming. Was stoned the other day though and bought 'Rally 2.0' on my xbox 1 (for an overpriced fee). just to please him for 10 minutes more during isolation. He loves cars. So hes fucking loving it. And actually. Rally games seem to be fun when im bombed? Dont think I've played 1 since my old man got a 1 free with his AST windows 95 pc. Peace bro.
Lmao I'm in into the new game stuff, fuck that makes me sound old and I'm only in my early 30s lol. I Xbox is just for a DVD player and zombies + the missus likes it for the DVD so it stays in the bedroom :( Are world's in are computers are so far apart it's cool.
Everything except the GPU was bought when that cpu was the latest gen. I plan on updating at some point to the current spec but I'm waiting until I can run triple screens at 4k and over 120hz with a single card and then that should be completely future proof.
I’ve only had the ps4 pro for a few months compared to having the Xbox one x for a few years . I prefer the Xbox controller and things like game pass tbh but there’s a couple exclusives I like on ps4 which I’ve been playing a lot more recently
I had the PS4 (non pro version) and sold it, bought just to play The Last of Us and Red Dead Redemption 2 (when wasn't available for PC) but never had an xbox so I'm curious to see what is the opinion from a person who owns both consoles :P
I’ve been playing Xbox solidly since 360 days so I’m probably a bit biased but the controller and the UI is what I like and a couple exclusives like the forza horizons series which would run amazingly on your rig
Wow. That looks like a decent set up. I just play on PS4. Never really got into PC gaming. I'm playing battlefield v and FIFA 20 mostly. I am absolutely convinced that I am better at FIFA after a smoke.
Cali weed vs Dutch and Spanish weed... is it all clever marketing
Hi Lads As a grower I'm 100% confident that my best strains/ grows will hold their own against most, but the demand for the unusual/ different and exotic is stronger than ever.
So the Question is, what makes real Cail weed better ? Or Dutch import for that matter.
If I get top end genetics ( seeds ) as a starting point, why cant I equal or better cali weed ?
Genetics are what they are, and theres no secret way that only our US friends know of too growing weed.
Good genetics/ good nutrients ( possibly organic) / good growing environment ( lights extraction, stable temps etc and cured the right way.
I personally think it's a bit of a trend thing a bit like supposed wine connoisseurs... get a group of smokers to try 2 good UK grown stains and 2 cail and most people couldn't pick the supposedly more superior product imo
I made my own cross back in 2003 with a pure haze (m) and a bubbleberry (f) to this day its the finest weed ive ever smoked! I only grew out two seeds and it went 14 weeks both phenos were almost identical.
Ive also grown other cuts of various strains in hydro, soil and outside in the uk, all methods produced different results in the plants appearance, smell, taste and effect.
For example the cuts grown outside were so different you would have thought it was a completely different strain! The high was very uplifting and mild compared with the hydro which was a heavy couchlock effect.
I put this down to the difference in light spectrum from the sun (full spectrum inc uv) I believe this changes the terpene and cannabinoid profile in the plant.
Ive also run metal halide exclusively and noted a difference compared with hps ie it is more similar to sunlight at midday you will definitely see way less stretch and the flowers are more dense and flavoursome but will lose a little yeild. I finally settled on mh for the first 3 weeks afer switch then hps for the remainder of flowering. Next time i grow i will be using diy led cobs with the aim of getting 1.8g /w
My point here really is to agree with the op a good pheno grown well, flushed properly and dried cured properly ( MOST IMPORTANT FACTOR IN FINAL PRODUCT) will always compare to cali/dutch etc imo.
If you really want something special do what they do but on a smaller scale they will grow out 100's of seeds from an unstable f1 cross and find a phenotype that is rather special! Good luck stabilising it and preserving the desirable traits in seed form though! In fact this is what happened with cheese it was a freak pheno that was only available as a clone for a long time. I suspect the seed form now is not nearly as nice as the original cutting? Sorry for going off on one i just wanted to share my experiences experiments.
On another note some of the oldschool strains will put modern cali strains to shame for example bubbleberry from sagmartha seeds, super silver haze to name a few people always want the latest thing it doesnt mean its the best!
The Cali strain thing, to me, is just hype. It just means the strain genetic was produced in California...highly doubt any of it is "flown here not grown here". Having raised this topic in coffeeshops in Amsterdam, they say its flown in....yet their Twitter accounts show them growing it, stage by stage hahaha. When asking in a cannabis social club in Spain, they told me they grow it themselves. Other coffeeshops in the Dam have also told me the cali flown in thing is bollocks. As you say, tins are available on ebay in bulk. That says it all. Ive also had friends give me nugs out of "cali tins" that cost £50 for 3.5g and its been standard commercial weed.
I think the deal with dutch weed is their experience on a commercial basis. Spain are winning the game in my eyes though! If you get a genuine spanish import you are in luck!! It will be lovely! As with Dutch imports....its not too hard to shift weed around Europe. But the risk to import from the U.S just wouldnt be worth it IMO.
The fact that theres power sellers on eBay getting rich off selling thousands of shitty tins/tubes and stickers advertising exotic cali strains says it all. Theres no telling the "connoisseurs" who pay £400+ an ounce, that their "cali" more than likely originates from someones bedroom tent in the same town :)
The fact that it's even possible to get "Cali" grown outside of California says it all really, it's become a type of brand name. If some one grows a bit of Amnesia I've never heard them call it UK grown Amsterdam.... it makes no sense.
"Cali" is the kind of thing we have to worry about if we ever go legal or whatever, it's just big American companies trying to steamroller over everyone else. Same old shit, different market.
We definitely need to make sure we look after our UK growers going forward, we do DANK better on this side of the pond anyway. Let's get a whole range of Cheese's going I say :P
Nothing wrong with Cali mind I might be being a bit harsh but we do have to be careful though.
Great thread. I’ve enjoyed reading all the replies but what sticks with me is that same doubt... I don't think much genuine Cali grown weed makes it over here... as you've said, there are loads of UK producers making very convincing ‘counterfeit’ Cali packaging. Its crap.
There are good reasons why someone might choose Cali or Dutch over UK bud, but I think the rationale behind it has been somewhat drowned up by hype/fashion. But ultimately, Cali or Dutch bud should - in theory - come from more accountable growers. 'Real Cali' is tested, and it's quality verified - that will be appealing to people whose 'street' purchases might be questionable. Same goes for Dutch, to a degree. In as much as if this is sold in a coffee shop, it has to compete with all bud in all coffee shops, and is therefore expected to be of higher quality.
There are also legacy reasons, possibly. Pre-legalisation, I used to get bud in from Cali - I've long believed the best outdoor grows come from that region, and I like outdoor grows! But the geography of the 'Golden Triangle' in Cali does offer the ideal growing environment - but with modern genetics close to hand (unlike more traditional growing regions). The sheer number of smokers/growers there also led to the early(ish) medical legalisation there, which also helped the scene. California deserves its reputation as the home of amazing cannabis - but certainly not everything from there is great these days (I suspect the black market here is largely their rejects!). Similarly, Amsterdam's been the home of modern genetics on this side of the ocean, with the coffeeshop scene encouraging at least a base level of quality.
UK bud doesn't have that same provenance. There are some famous cuts, sure - Exodus, Blues etc. But nothing else that implies any guarantee of quality. But, of course, with the same seeds and equipment, there's no reason UK bud couldn't theoretically compete with the best. Indeed, nearly all the best buds I've ever had have been UK grown. I'd never specifically choose Dutch over UK and I actively avoid marketed Cali in the UK (it's either fake, reject or over-priced!).
The one origin label that does prick my ears up is Canada. I believe their gear has a lot of the same advantages, but isn't exploited in the same way. If I want cheap, reliable quality, Canadian vendors top the charts. But for pristine high end, I stick with good growers of nice genetics in the UK.
Cali is Cali, you know when its from Cali, its got that certain... thing. UK Cali, is just a cali strain grown here in the UK. I know many people who will only smoke Real Cali. And many who say its not worth the extra price tag.
Personally, smoke/price the UK Grown hold their own just as well, if the growers done a good job.
The UK Cali strains just switch the flavours up a little bit so your not smoking the same thing all the time, and you can rely on the strain being a decent one.
I had alsorts of cali an tbf the only thing that's real good is how much they trim their leaves. but ive had just as good uk grown or in dam coffee shops so i think cali quality can be grown anywhere if you know how
Maybe it's just that if someones done a truly excellent job of growing they will label it as Cali.
The Cali characteristics seem to be a really clean burn and very compact buds - which is amazing, but who knows where it was grown? All I know is, I've never come across harsh, unflushed or nutrient burned "Cali".
Another thing I've noticed is, I think the effort put into growing is way more important than what the strain is.
Personally I think Cali and Dutch herb is better than UK weed and I’ve smoked a shit tonne of Dutch weed living there in the mid 00’s... why? Simply because it’s legal... you don’t have to rush, hide away, worry constantly, they’re doing it on a legal industrial scale so the equipment is better, they can invest in the newest and best equipment without fear of losing it all in a raid, purely and simply it’s investment that makes legal weed better.
Also a big factor is in the U.K. we have to buy what’s available if it’s shit it’s shit, wait and hope the next lot from your dealer is better, in legal countries it’s competition there is recourse for the product.... I had XXX weed from XXX grower and it was the bomb goes far and makes money, rather than I bought some banging weed off Gary in the dog and duck in Grimsby means fuck all unless you know Gary and live in Grimsby... accountability is the difference imo.
Can weed be grown as well in the UK as Cali or Dam... 100% it’s a seed it grows, no rocket science behind it or a special formula just freedom, time and equipment and experience.
100% mate, I DO believe there is some grade around that just couldn't be produced to that quality and volume in some cloak and dagger growhouse operation here.
I see a lot more coming from Canada, and there's been routes from Dam, Poland and elsewhere for green in as long as it's been here. However with the right genetics, knowledge and conditions I believe you can grow truly A*** green anywhere, just not sure you can do it on an industrial scale in a country that continues to throw so much of the law's resources to shutting them down.
As others have said the equipment used, testing, level of quality control, the manicured buds, the density, the quality, the taste...there is definitely something..different around, that never was before the "Cali" phase. Hype or otherwise.
Where it comes from I have no idea but there has been a huge change in the strength and amount that's around.
The problem I have is the grey area between what is genuine Top Shelf and what isn't. The marketing has muddied the waters and pushed up the price and cache of average weed that sparkles a bit.
Fact is no matter what, I draw the line somewhere. When we were kids it was 3.5 for 25 quid, last time I went to Dam it was €20 on the gram. I just will never reach to some of those levels and even on here you will see up to £70-80 a henry. Doesn't matter where it's grown, flown....budget dictates for me.
There has always been a top level, and as long as that reflects in the product we can all be happy.
I agree 100%. And if it is Cali weed, surely traveling and packaging would have caused some damage from compression and heat changes and sitting in plastic bags for possibly days on end. If u get from a grower direct and they grow well, other than it being tested and having label saying how much THC etc it should be as good or better. BUT as legal they have more chance to hunt phenos and share genetics so they do have that in their side. But most Cali is probably Albanian weed in a nice baggy lol
If you have the right seeds and know what you're doing then there shouldn't be much difference, that said a lot of uk weed is rushed without the proper flushing and drying due to the risk of loosing it all when you could sell it.
there's a lot more science and consistancy in cali weed.. they've been able to study and learn the plant legally for last 20 odd years within the medical era with the correct resources therefore they have a lot more knowledge of what the plant requires and needs
any top shelf cali that has been packaged properly and licensed wouldve gone through testing too before hitting the shelves, to make sure there are no pesticides etc.
I'm not convinced, yes they have been at it for ages, but so have the Dutch... and they still grow in the same manner as most. Lights / good feed and a bit of TLC. Theres a case for using reverse osmosis water but it's not proven as it strips essential minerals out of the water, so they need to be re added. The clue is in the name "weed" theres no magic science that only the guys in cali know of. I get your point of consistency of environment but with the right resources, that isn't out of reach.
Have you seen large scale cali grows, they are similar to large scale grows all over the world.
Thanks for your input Hootan, always good to hear other peoples views
its still illegal to grow weed in holland. they have to learn the plant in secret making it so much harder. also they grow recreational weed.. which is really just for the average consumer who doesnt care what they smoke aslong as they get their high. their tech in cali is far more advanced than any other place on the planet, and thats why their weed is the best.
What tech make it far more advanced than any other place on the planet? You know the UK grow tons of medical weed, and they grow just like the cali labs. And you think the stuff that supposedly comes from these super advanced labs is the stuff we get in the UK... eventhough its illegal to ship it to the UK. Or is it at best, opportunist from cali growing in a warehouse in standard conditions and smuggling it into the UK.... or maybe it's not from cali.
Not trying to rub you up the wrong way, just chatting, but claiming it's the best because it's more advanced or that they've been doing it longer is marketing speil without substance.
In my very limited experience of what I have had/seen that has been sold as Cali is that it is always rock hard, dense bud that has been very decently trimmed and there is never any sugar leaf. Other than that...isn't it just really strong weed???
I have always asked myself what is it that Cali growers can do that UK growers supposedly can't?? It's all indoors so we should be able to replicate the exact same conditions anywhere in the world no? Admittedly it must be a lot easier to create/maintain a professional grow in a place where it is legal to do so but technique and equipment wise, aren't we all on a level playing field now?
Also, I still have the whole 'how long does it take to physically transport wholesale weed from California to here'...and how the hell could it possibly get to us in tip top condition??? Surely if it is legit from Cali, it is past it's best by the time it's taken weeks to get here getting battered about the whole time?...
I can't personally see why UK weed couldn't in theory be as good as anything grown anywhere in the world...unless I have missed something?
Yes, you raise some good points... smuggle cail weed to the UK by the ton in tins... or smuggle coke. Theres a guy on Insta from London ( ish ) called "Slapsta designs " I think and the guy is churning out thousands of 3.5g bags, tins, glass pots etc. Not weed, just bag etc and it's getting bought and filled by UK guys with...... Cali weed, pull the other one, maybe its just good UK weed, or not so good
Exactly! Makes no sense to me that any serious smuggler would choose to move weed from California to the UK! Talk about hassle... Coke, meth, anything else moves easier with bigger profit... boggles my mind that people can import wholesale Cali weed in this day and age...
Also, yeah... just go to Calipacks UK on the net and you really do start to question a lot of things....
So hopefully ive mange to get myself a job! WOOP!! Only problem is i think they drug test! Is there anyway of stopping THC showing or beating the test? Anyone in uk know? Much appriciated any help you give!
Yeah thats true! The jobs not sounding worth it if i have to do that! Joke is i bet they wont be breatherlising people as they go into the plant in the morning! It's not like ill being going in stoned to the bone! I'll be going in sober. Anyway thanks for your imput. This actually reall been intresting to find out.
Hey mate, first things first - Congrats on the job (hopefully) lol. I've passed 8 drug tests now without ever using my own urine. The only "drug" I do is weed so it really pisses me off that a coke head can just take a break for 2 or 3 days and they're golden but as I'm a daily smoker I'd have to stop for 2months to properly purge everything from my system and that's just not feesable.
When your asked to take the test it's in a private room, nobody will be watching over your shoulder and when you're finished you just place the cup in the little window/cupboard on the wall.
First step, source some clean urine, a trustworthy friend or sibling is normally the way to go for me. If you get it the night before, stick it in the fridge.
Step two, put water in a pot and heat it up, when the water is warm (not boiling!) Place the bottle of urine into the pot for a minute to warm it up effectively, just like you would with a baby bottle. (Do not microwave your urine!).
Step three, transfer the urine into a small portable bottle, I find the little plastic travel bottles you use to bring fluids like perfume abroad are perfect but any small concealable bottle will do fine.
Step four, tie or tape the bottle to your inner thigh or between your nuts and your inner leg (sorry for the vulgarity lol). This is vital as your core temperature keeps the urine at it's natural heat when it leaves your body, if the urine is cold it won't trigger the test and come back as a false positive. This is how the majority of people fail the test as the examiners know what cold urine feels like, they are fucking doctors lol.
Step five, lock the door, remove the bottle that is still warm and pour it into the cup. Make sure you bring the empty bottle away with you - do NOT leave it in the little bin in the toilet, they check those too.
It may seem a little impractical and it is slightly uncomfortable but I've done this exact method 8 times and have never failed a drug test and have gotten the 5 jobs I had to take one for (the other three times were for drug tests scheduled within the company but you're told when they are coming up).
I hope this helps mate and best of luck going forward!
No worries bud, happy to help in any way I can. I've been in your position and there's a lot of bad advice out there. Personally this one works wonders for me but I've heard of other more complicated methods. I hope it all goes well for you mate and keep us posted :) all the best!
Thanks man! Yeah i was thinking about those detox clensers from head shops ect! Defiently trying this method! It's keeping it warm till when they want the test done! Not sure if it will be first day or when! Don't want to ask to much and alert them to double checking me! It's annoying because with more money was looking forward to trying more stuff on here! Wouldn't be on such a tight budget!
Yeah in my opinion those things are just a scam but I'm not a doctor so fuck if I know really lol. If your in the car or on a bus, as long as the bottle is tight to your body, your natural temperature should keep it warm.
There's an easy way around that, just say you have something on that day like looking after the kids until your partner comes home etc and ask would it be possible to do it in the afternoon, or vice versa if you would rather do it in the morning.
I normally go with "I have to bring my grandmother to her doctors appointment that morning, would it be possible to come in the afternoon?".....I don't even have a Grandmother lol. Obviously I did at one point in life but not for 15+ years and she was cool so I'd imagine she's alright with it haha.
Yeah man i thought that! Apperently certo pectin works just the same by youtube vids! Lot cheaper to!
Its a job for a concret/block paving manufacture, so it at on an industrial unit. Not sure if ill do it there or if ill get called somewhere!
Hmmm would one of those hand warmers work? That way id just keep in my boxers and not worry about it dropping out!
It's annoying because i wouldnt smoke before work or anything, yet i bet half the people there will turn up half cut from the night before, especially now pubs will be opening here!
If it wasnt for getting back on the smoke i wouldnt be in a postion now where im able to go for a job! Hopefully ill get it sorted!
Thanks for your help though defiantly trying it! They havnt even said im defiently getting one. Just on application i filled in they said its possible and i had to sign yes! Lookin online 6-8 years ago it seems they fired 3 people for it, two where hard drugs and one was weed!
Anyway brought a lottery ticket tonight so never know might be in a postion that i dont need to work ahaha would be nice!
Depends on the weather i dont want to be sweating my b&ll's off aha. Have seen some good flushing techniques online with cranberry juice. Why the fuck does it matter if i smoke the night before! Like drink or anything im not going to turn up to work off myface. Cant wait till its legal here man needs to hurry up!
You can't beat a drugs test for THC as its stored in your fat cells and can take months to become clean after heavy usage. I've heard of people getting done for drug driving days after thier last smoke.
You also have to consent to a test so its upto you if you take it or not, but you could be sacked. Really depends on the type of job you have as to whether you could then challenge the dismissal.
Unless you operate machinery there isn't a lawful reason for them to be testing you.
All depends on the type of drug test they do, a mouth swab is easily defeated and will only show up if you smoked in the last 12hr or so, drink lots of water b4 the test and try to have a cigarette also as this can give false readings (they ask if you ate/smoked in the last 30min.
Litmus test where you pee on the stick is also only good for few hours (ive actually been smoking on the way to the centre and still passed the test) Urine sample is a lot harder thc can still be in your system 5 weeks later ive passed a DVLA urine sample test after 3 week sober and was/im a very heavy user.
Chances are if they do drug tests then you will prob have 1 before you start work. I was bus driver for 10 years and was heavy smoker of weed every night (never before work)
Blood tests are more expensive and can show up if you smoked in the last 1 year or so Hair test can last for years before clean but is very expensive to do
Yeah thats it! I don't want to message either asking what type of drug test looks a bit obviouse im trying to hide something! They said drug test might happen as part of the job aplication. Only went for interview today and waiting to hear back! Hopefully they will say when they get back to me! I'm not a heavy smoker by any means, not got the funds, but still know it can show up in the system for a while after.
Usually wouldnt faze me this but i want to get back into work, and not many jobs at the moment!
Hopefully though i can pass this! If it comes back postive ill just blame it that at a bbq the other week must of smoked smothing funny well i was drunk ;)
I'm more worried that if i test postive then it fucks me for looking for a good job at the moment.
Anyway that your response ill keep it all in mind!
I received mine today. Just tried 1 and ill keep you guys posted on the potency. No taste of anything other than a strawberry sweet though, its either very well made or a scam. Ill get back to you in 2-4hrs
I gotta say guys, it's not looking good. These should be advertised as 40mg for the PACK (10mg a sweet) AT MOST.
Now im almost certain it is a scam, considering the product has been removed kinda helps my decision. No telling if TStoner is in on it or maybe his suppler is just mugging him off (I assume he hasnt tried these) but faith in him as a seller is lost on me ( I only really buy Edibles and the occasional bit of weed) Hope none of you spent $40 on 8 bonbons like I did but I hope reading this helps
I believe the packaging may be fake, but the product itself has proved that it actually works. :) Thankyou for your concerns and for giving me the information that the packaging was fake as I had no clue cheers guys:)
Aah I see now.....yea jungle boys is on top as far as growers go, there’s 100s if not 1000s of people who take their brand and names and sell knock offs at underground events, which are a freaking blast but there is a lot of inflated labels because ether just write whatever I’ll see 1000 mg 5000mg labels some of it is legit and a lot of it is just “buzz” words lol. But I believe you are an honest one trying to provide quality and reliably, thanks for being upfront about it and best wishes to you! I’ll take off the post I just did before this
I've bought some edibles on here but not from this vendor and I could tell they were fake as the bag says its weight but when you put it on the scales it's well off, and they were heat sealed bags which were not sealed.
I did get a hit but not as much as you'd expect considering the advertised dose.
The other issue is that you don't know its real thc or the synthetic stuff they use in spice.
My advice is buy concentrates and make your own or buy from someone who makes thier own like mj concentrates.
I was thinking the same thing after a purchase (not from this vendor) and noting very little high or effect, so I did some research. If you look at the packaging for a number of the available edibles (without naming any names, as I'm not a shit stirrer), you will be able to see the packaging is for sale. They look kosher, but there is very little validation or proof of their contents. I have chosen to give all edibles a miss, unless they are homemade by the vendor or myself. I have linked the packaging website, so you can make your own decisions. I hope the vendors check this out, and implement some sort of testing for THC volume.
Yes I know bro this package is on sale, easy to find anything wit Google, but RB has Chuckles sweets 400mg and people saying they are good even they are 5£ cheaper and the Rating is High comparing to this California GoldenSugar This shet 46 USD other 41usd so choosing more expensive product with less MG wasn't good idea ..
Yeah, it wasn't hard to locate the bags. Like you say, easy to find anything on Google... I've had edibles from different vendors on here... The only ones that really had any decent effect were home made. I reckon I'll be avoiding all of these after reading reviews across the site... RSO into my brownies for the moment, I think! Peace, bro.
I had sweets from Drugs Inc mild high but at least u can feel it after eating 1. But this fake RB Medibles after eating 2 packs 8 pcs and not smoking more than a week I felt mad angry upset because I didn't get anything from it nothing...just a feeling of hard earned money wasted on sugar which makes people Fat ..
The people who have bought these off me in person have said that they have given them a nice mellow high some people have complained saying they weren’t as strong as expected but they aren’t fake I didn’t make them myself I admit that but they do give you a mild high more of a relaxed high than stoned out your head, and the medibles are to medicate with I believe I’m not 100% certain on that though.
Jungle boys only sells edibles for 100 mg doses and do not make edibles themselves, they usually sell Kaneh co or stiizy, and there are a lot of people pretending to be them, jb posted them up on ig almost daily
If they were legit they'd be at least twice the price listed. These are usually branded bags bought for pennies and people put their own sweets in it. Not the only seller doing them, have a look at radar breader. He says himself that he never said they were legit or imported because there not. I bought 4 packs claiming 50mg a piece and only got mild effects from them, I should have been on the floor.
Just had a look at Reddit and theres a guy on there with piles of the medebles trying to sell them. There must be loads of these knocking around the place now. The most worrying thing about these is not that you could be scammed but what is actually in them.
im afraid this packaging is fake. not sure about what the product inside is saying strength wise. jungle boys are a licensed dispensary and cultivators of flowers in LA. they do not package their own edibles. they specialize specifically in flower and concentrates.
The packaging most likely is fake to be honest if that’s the case as it doesn’t have a CannVerify tag on it, I haven’t made the product myself or put sweets in them, I have got them off my supplier and sold them on, people have had food and bad things to say about them, The sweets themselves aren’t fake they are still edibles but the packaging is most likely fake so I’m sorry for advertising it as that as I didn’t know myself the packaging was fake until I got dmed about the cannverify tag and that is obvious so can’t argue with that. But the product inside is still very tasty and does get you stoned!
What could i use to smoke these concentrates like wax, resin, shatter, terp sauce and whatever other name it goes by, any ideas or suggestions? prefferably nothing crackish (if you know what i mean). Looking for something like a vape pen, or whatever you guys use to vape this stuff... the more options the better. Thanks. I was recommeded a dab box, and a dab straw...but its not very discreet to use either (and the dab straw looks...you know). Please recommend a discreet option. Thanks again.
I use Yocan cerum for wax and shatter bargain $9.99 fasttech you attach to mod 13w nice flavour coil last ages and they also have dry herb coils also fits same thing but I just use for wax but nice to have the choice.Black is discreet option but I like green,quartz coil for wax donut for dry herb. I hold power button for a one second then pulse power button a couple of times to gets it going found that was the best method.And your high after 2 tokes and hits you hard and fast
I really wouldn’t bother tbh...it’s messy, tastes like crap (I used some pineapple wax) and separates quickly over time (despite following the instructions to the tee!) was gutted I wasted the shatter (still got the hit but just wasn’t that great). I’d just dab the wax/crumble itself - the taste and buzz is much better.
Not true at all, I love a good dab but sometimes my rig is dirty, the whole heating up, using laser thermometer and all that jazz can be a bit tedious. I've enjoyed a diamond or odd bit of live resin sugar in a spliff and it's been tasty as feck and hit super hard so don't be put off! If you've not got a rig try it in a spliff it won't be as tasty or as big a hit bit will give you a very good idea of what you're missing out on xD
Edit: a little goes a very long way though so use sparingly
Personally I think it’s a waste - the Linx Ember would suit your discrete needs as the shatter goes in the pen on top of the coil (in a glass chamber like a normal vape cart) so the only smell is when you exhale
I recently got the Linx Ember (from everyonedoesit.co.uk) tiny little discrete pen for wax/shatter. Good thing about this one is you can remove the chamber and insert vape carts as it’s in a standard thread. The chamber is sealed (the coil is inside) so it’s really discrete on the go as you can load your wax up and take it out with you. Was only £30 too
Hey man. I'm using Pax 3 that I bought in Amsterdam last summer. I've pretty much stopped rolling now as u can use the pax for pretty much anything. Bud, wax ø, hash etc. A bit pricy but comes with 10 year guarantee. Also super discreet on the go. Worth the money for me for sure!! Good luck !
Looks great in the review, does anything need to be changed after prolonged use? I see it does not utilize coils so it that a no? and also it come with one extra heating chamber, does that mean the first one will die?. sorry but im new to concentrates and vaping them.
i couldn't answer your questions regarding the chamber, as i havent used it myself. try reading some of the reviews left on the website. i use the traditional method of dabbing, concentrates onto a quartz banger and rig.
Ah, i see. Well, just my luck; it looks like they're sold out everywhere for 70£(thepuffcoplus). If anyone has any other options that are in stock somewhere please let me know. looks like this is the new thing going forward.Would love to use the rig but it's very questionable whilst trying to be discreet lol. Appreciate your help anyway.
Think your in same position as me, needing to be discreet ive been looking at these https://www.amazon.co.uk/Nectar-Concentrate-Vaporizer-Upgradable-Mouthpiece/dp/B07QYWW7ZJ/ref=sr_1_9?dchild=1&keywords=pax+2&qid=1589413325&sr=8-9
Just treated myself to the Mighty vape. Wondering what temp setting to use for best hit. I’m currently using shake from radar breeder, love it to smoke! Just tried vaping at 180, seems ok but not as strong a hit as smoking in my Budbomb. Thanks in advance.
As already mentioned 185 best starting temp and increase as you go.dosing capsules are amazing for out and about Keeping device clean and just to reduce the amount of messing about. Apart from slow heat up time this is one of my favourite vapes
I have a Boundless CFX vape. Its a cheaper version of the mighty. Would love a mighty. I usually start at 180 and go up in increments of 6-8 degrees every so often until I hit 205. The lower the temp the more flavour. Not as strong as smoking a J but possibly healthier and you can also keep the avb. I'm currently running real low on flower but have a little avb stored up that I will either bake with or make firecrackers from to stretch me for a few more days until hopefully package arrives. Enjoy the Mighty :)
With the Mighty, I start from around 175. But I only bother with that if it's something higher end that I really want to taste. Otherwise I go in at 185. After maybe 4 or 5 hits, I push up to around 195 for a couple more. If it's still got life in it, I'll push up to 205 for a final pull (won't taste great though). Lots of variables though - how finely the herb is ground, how tightly packed in the bowl as well as moisture content etc. To get it just right you need to fine tune every time. But the rule of thumb is start low and move higher.
They need a warrant, they have zero checks mate it’s the Royal Mail, it’s not been updated for like a century. Like treebee said it’s if it’s poor stealth. They are more likely to rob it then give it in to the office. I wouldn’t worry mate unless you got a kilo coming through the door
Loads and loads of people have ‘cottage industries’ at home, where they are making stuff as a sideline and running online businesses from home, trading on ebay, buying parts and equipment etc. I wouldn't worry about it, the postmen and women probably have got better things to do than wonder what people are getting delivered. Poor stealth and smells from the parcels would be more of a worry though..
Unless you roll particularly skinny joints, the burning cherry/embers will be heating unburned bud further down the spliff - effectively decarbing it before it ignites. I think you'd just lose terps/flavour rather than gain any benefit.
Hi I'm new to the LB community and just wanted to say this place looks like the answer to my prayers. I've been on lockdown for five weeks now and haven't had a smoke for four and a half of those! Had a bit of a hard time getting my head around buying Bitcoin, I used Coinbase in the end and after figuring everything out I managed to place my first order today , I can't tell you how excited I am for the postie to bring my goods!! I tried to make a second order but Coinbase won't let me deposit any more funds (made three deposits already today due to not knowing what I am doing lol and apparently I have reached my limit for today) can anyone recommend an alternative to Coinbase that is relatively user friendly? Peace
welcome bro, tbh i wouldnt even use Coinbase. i mean its easy enough to use but seems to have some caps on spending as your experiencing, try a different wallet, even the blockchain wallet is pretty good less constraints and can still buy bit coin same way as on coinbase
The best option for someone new using Coinbase is Coinbase Pro to be honest. It only costs 50p for every £100 converted to Bitcoin using this method. Transfer the funds via your bank using Faster Payments, free of charge, the money will go into your Coinbase Pro account and you then buy Bitcoin at market price for an instant transaction and you have your Bitcoin there and then ready to transfer to a wallet. 50p for every £100 converted and the simplicity of the procedure means i have not felt the need to look at alternatives but if theres better options id like to hear them too.
I use paxful for bitcoin - was in the same boat never bought online before and never done the bitcoin thing. Paxful is really easy to use tbh I've no idea if I'm getting good value or not but I'll work it out as time goes on. Hope the royal mail delivery debacle doesn't have you hanging on for too long ;)
Hey guys, thank you all for the warm welcome and advice. I love this place so many well informed posts and of course great weed, none of which I have sampled yet but I am hopeful the post will yield my first order tomorrow Strawberry Banana and hopefully Ketama Gold hash to follow soon after. Its been 5 long hard weeks with no smoke and boy will it be welcome when it comes! Stay safe stoners, peace.
Yo buddy - welcome to Lb - yes, it's got very busy here the last few weeks due to lockdown so be prepared for slightly slower runnings than usual...
Coinbase is ok - well, it's shit but it's ok lol... I have had numerous issues with coinbase freezing the account etc but once I went through all their steps and uploaded full photo id etc it now runs fine, haven't been blocked on it in weeks now.
If you follow the links to verify your account etc it should free it up to use - I'm not too worried personally about coinbase 'knowing' what I'm up to...there is a lot of legit trade that takes places with BTC so can't see they will be that bothered to start looking, it's all business for them at the end of the day. Others may advise otherwise though man...my view is kind of that the feds can come fucking get me for an oz of bud if they like...cost them more in overtime than it will for me to re-up...
Do consider getting a 'wallet' though like exodus or something - I have been caught out badly by leaving bitcoin in coinbase for a few days and the market tanks and I have lost loads of money in the last few weeks...got myself a wallet now - buy the coin on coinbase and send it straight to a wallet and then on to vendor.
Thanks for all the replies guys/girls, found alot of great info on here. Coinbase has allowed me to make a deposit today so I'm all set to order again :) I will do a bit more research on buying btc and let you know how I get on. Peace
Yeah, I have made a few little 20s/30s in the last couple of weeks on ups and downs but still down on the whole deal as I lost over £250 in the two week murder spree a few weeks back...that was a painful time...god knows what it must be like to be a vendor or suchlike at times like that...
Its either really dry the thc has come of or its been squashed in the post they would effect the thc i dont think you can drysift buds unless its dust but you can get blasted weed where its been made for shatter then the leftover weed is resold
As in have you found some fire bud for a normal price on here? Like I've had a couple small orders and the weeds looked and tasted nice but not really done much else for me. Like I haven't had that feeling like you get from a joint in Dam for a long time now you know what I mean? Might try JJ not tried him yet
Yeah really wanna find an angle to work with for good bud because my street bud is so bad right now it's unreal. Just seems abit lost so far. Don't wanna pay 70 quid for 3.5 grams just to get high I smoke too much for that shit. Just wanna get high from my weed lol
Definitely gonna take this advice been thinking alot about it. Furlough payday needs to hurry up so I can try out a new hobby...bring on the vape! If it's gonna knock me off my feet I'm interested! Do love smoking a good flower though just wish it was easier to find on here for noobs like me. I smoke twice as much if not more if I'm smoking on flower that's not doing the job properly.
