Hi guys, just wondering if anyone has any idea of the source of the weed we buy from venders here? I ask as a good friend of mine who lets a house out has just had his house ruined by an Albanian crime ring that turned his house into a weed factory, they literally gutted the house ripped all the wiring out holes through the ceiling, there had been fires from the dodgy electrics they had run from a lamp post and they had a poor Albanian slave locked in there running it, who feared for his life if he tried to run. It really hit home and I would hate to be contributing to this sort of thing.
Was thinking about this yesterday. I started shopping here a few months ago because I had to stop growing my own. It was nice to know you were full organic, not bothering anyone, not causing any problems with your smoke. But because it's illegal here I am getting it from god knows where :(
Noble enough sentiment, but you do then start to ask about the potential human cost that put your shirt on your back and the potential inhumanity that put that sausage on your plate. I get it that suffering in the drug chain is a big part of the ‘Just Say No’ argument but it’s hardly unique in mass consumerism. I guess growing your own is the way to go (and making your own clothes, going vegan etc)...just don’t have time.
There are others on here who do this, like ChronusBuds and British Bulldog. I have yet to try them, but it looks like they get v.good feedback too.
When a new indie grower like this joins LB comes along and gets noticed, there are usually multiple attempts to leave fake negative reviews. These can only be coming from some of the shadier vendors trying to force them off the items wall, or off the site completely - just ignore this kind of hate and show love to the decent biggaz!
I agree, I really don’t want to be part of a problem with the most simple answer (legalise it, but a conversation for another time).
Thank you for highlighting vendors you have researched, I will look them up.
If I may just add to your list of decent vendors, I have been using MKK2020 a lot and I believe they grow a lot of their own. The service is excellent to the point where I had a minor issue and they resolved it brilliantly.
Thanks for your openness, I get the feeling most venders on here are genuine like yourself, but there is a dark side to this industry that are also in the business of people trafficking and slavery and there products should not reach the LB community.
The same here- ended up eating less meat just because I started eating more veg :) Not a black/white path though as there are A LOT of poor quality "vegan"-labelled products with tonnes of salt and things that are much worse than meat.
If you are at all interested in hip hop, check out the BBC Four series "Hip Hop - The Songs That Shook America". I only saw one episode so far, but there are some amazing interviews, old footage and stories.
Easily the best documentary mini series I've seen in years. And I watch a lot of them. Fascinating if you're interested in the cannabis business, and murder....and weird isolated communities, and loads more.
Just incredible. Seen it 3 times and might watch it again.
Tiger King on Netflix is also pretty good although didn't need to be as long as it was. Seemed to be dragged out over too many episodes.
Yes, (Murder Mountain) I need to watch that again. Started casually watching that and then couldn't believe what I was watching. Tiger King is fun to watch, but Murder Mountain should just as much credit or hype.
My order yesterday from Smoggyman came in it’s own lidded Tupperware type pot to protect the fantastic huge nugs from any damage or compression. This was repeat heat sealed in THREE (!) layers of vacuum bags, followed by a Jiffy and then a plastic outer with large clear typed address. If that’s not ultimate stealth then I’m open to suggestions??
I have bought a few times from THEPROVIDER, and stealth isn’t bad but it’s not the best either, mind you they were only an 1/8 at a time purchases, and as I have mentioned once before I can understand sellers not wanting to spend an age on packaging on such a small order!
The Jiffy type bags they use don’t seem the most durable though and one arrived torn and you could see the wrapped Mylar bag inside.
At least they cut the hash thinly though so it doesn’t feel like a big lump in the envelope unlike some others.
Every order I have made with them has reached me safely. (In the UK) and so far it’s all been lovely hash too!
Looks like youve had some good advice already, most sellers have good stealth imo but if you're looking for TGT style packaging then LUD uses boxes and my last order with ULC came in a box too. Smoggyman uses little plastic containers and come well packaged.
They mostly sell bud but LUD has drysift from time to time and ULC have some hash too.
I've tried a few guys out and I have to say TGT has amongst the best stealth I've seen... Urban Leaf Co also has great stealth on par with TGT also Radar Breeder and MJconcentrates is not bad either...
The wrapping principle is essentially the same for each seller but the trick is to message the seller and to see whether they put their goods in a box or in a bag/bubble wrap... Its a gripe I have with any seller (there has been a couple) who use only the bags as your buds will often get crushed in transit... Good stealth is no good to me if everything is flat once it gets to me.
To be honest I've never really had a problem with any stealth problems from any vendor on this site. One of the most memorable packages I received was from Hashishin, it was a custom order for a few different things. When I got it it was packaged as a "bath and body set" in a wooden box with everything wrapped individually, there was "soap" "face cream" and all that kind of stuff. Not sure if this was a one off due to a multiple order or not though.
I can confirm, hashishin has excellent stealth. I also got it in a "soap set". And all I can say dont get premium nepal. Nothing premium about that hash. Char-black when burned, tastes a bit like henna. Almost no thc high for me, mainly felt in the body, not powerful and long lasting. He said its a landrace hash and that it isnt potent when I complained...LOLZ As far as Im concerned proper hash must be atleast 25-30% thc because it is a concetrated cannabis plant. There is no way it has less if quality cannabis is used. And if hybrids and "skunk" are used to make hash than the percentage of thc goes up and those hashes will be so potent that an un-experienced smoker will be overwhelmed.
my nicole kush just landed, will stick a review up once i have had chance to try it. stealth was A1, as usual. the gents know how it should be done, as does smoggyman. one of my other orders arrived, stealth was ok, but was simply buds in a thin heatsealed bag. prob wouldbt be great if that was punctured. the gents and smoggyman use multiple layers. stealth is all of our saftey, without it we would get *ucked!!
A lot of flowers I can’t tolerate when I’m ill, but the blue dream literally saved me twice this winter when I’ve got sick. It’s such a blessing to have such clean and loved buds.
I asked for a pre roll in a care package UKCF set up for me and I got a diy one which was so lovely :)
as a vendor it feels like they want to connect and genuinely care which was another thing I really value from finding the option of respectful sellers on LB
Anyway I made the pre roll (day two of feeling better) it’s ok for a first effort, I thought they are meant to make it easy but I can back roll better than I could build this!
It’s to last the day so I put purple punch at the end, next to zkittles, then it’s blue dream and I started with green crack, I think sativa through to Indica layered pre rolls is the future :) it’s burned perfectly so far, smooth, white ash and a lovely high ❤️
aw man, this is amazing! thanks loads Katy this has made my day.
I have never in my life heard of a layered pre roll I really think you are onto something you herbalistic pioneer you xD there's def a technique to it, I can smash through them quite quickly lol gotta make sure the roach bit is packed tighest, then the rest can be packed looser, hold it upright and tap the roachwhilst supporting with your hand. I think the RAW guy has a good videos on it.
Thanks for all the kind words, honestly. It makes it all worth it, I want to be a real life care giver for patients who need medical cannabis and not a drug dealer, this helps me feel like I am on the right path.
Next few years you might just find us legit, high hopes :D
I grow them all for me personally first, so my strains are carefully picked to have me covered for any occasion and purpose xD. I like to always mostly stock 1 mostly pure sativa and 1 mostly indica. this ishard to keep up though as the sativas are much bigger to keep lol. Then I run a few other random strains which covers everything in between or something i've been dying to try. The green crack is actually 35% or so Indica so it actually balances it very very well. As its so clean as well it should be a more manageable high for sure :)
Green Crack, I flowered my mother so wont have any for a while but I will always consider growing more of this strain as it's my favourite.
Glad to hear you're feeling better, Katy. I agree, UKCF is a really decent fella in my experience: friendly and likes to take care of people properly :) Not sure why his stuff isn't on the wall at the mo, but he deserves to be back on there! Just wondering if you have tried vaping your flower? Your supply goes much further and you don't have to deal with inhaling smoke to get medicated; way tastier too.
Yes indeed, still here my dude! Ted, Dougal and Mrs Doyle send you their very best :) We're all looking forward to trying some Gorilla Cookies here on Craggy Island, rest assured we will raise a toilet duck toast in your honour to wash the cookies down :D
Isn’t it :) I love the flavours, just was struggling to make the switch. I’ve had a t break now, so if you have any tips to quit the rizzla I’d love to know x oh I should add yes a lovely vendor and awesome products, no more green crack left and I only just fell in love with it!
"if you have any tips to quit the rizzla I’d love to know"
I think you're not alone in finding it difficult at first. The main thing to keep in mind is the high from vaping is not quite the same as smoking, as I guess you've found out. It tends to be a clearer, headier high. I'm not 100% sure why this is, but think that part of it is the effect of the carbon monoxide etc. in smoke adding to the "heavy" feeling. We also have to psychologically adjust to the changes in all the ritual and social aspects of having a j.
I've often seen people say that having a t-break before the switch helps a lot (then give it a go just with vaping for a bit). If you've just had one that should help!
Also, bear in mind that different vapes hit in different ways. On-demand vapes, especially the butane ones like Dynavaps and Sticky Bricks, hit hard and extract the cannabinoids quickly. I've seen a lot of ex-smokers comment that a Dynavap gets them closest to the satisfaction and ritual of smoking. Session vapes (like the Arizer products) heat your bud continuously for the duration of a sesh. They take longer to extract and often don't seem to smack people between the eyes in the same way, giving more of a relaxed experience.
Remember that the various cannabinoids evaporate at different temperatures, and the ones that typically give the sleepy, stony feelings get vaped at higher temps. When going for that, keep vaping/increasing the temp until your bud is dark brown like coffee grounds. The flavour can be a bit "meh" by then as all the tasty terpenes get evaporated well before you get to that stage.
Finally, you can keep your already vaped bud (AVB) and use it for edibles in the usual way, because the vaping functions as a decarb: two for the price of one! I find AVB edibles quite heavy and sedating, so you can supplement your vaping with that when you want.
Some helpful online forums to check out for more advice on vaping are Vaporents on Reddit, and another one called Fuck Combustion.
Hey, just an update, first time I’ve been properly chilled from vaping, I worked on my technique and used the ABV rather than saving it, thank you so much, you might have just saved a bigga from combusting :)
Hey Katy, really sorry I've taken so long to reply!! Been off here for a while but I'm back for more UKCF goodness. Awesome that you found the post to be of some help - hope you're still enjoying the vape life these days and that your weekend is going great :)
Absolutely, they should definitely look into accepting other cryptos! I can only see it benefitting everyone involved - the vendors, the buyers and probably LB too. I think Vendors would see an influx in sales and of larger quantities. Personally I'm stuck with what to pick each month due to the cost of BC transactions. So to be able to reduce the cost per transaction by choosing the cheapest crypto at that point in time would definitely result in more transactions overall and with multiple vendors as a result of the saved £££s on fees alone.
Agree with all the comments here, ridiculous at this stage that other forms aren’t accepted. It’s beneficial for all of us and it has to change. BTC fees and charges make buying an unnecessarily expensive transaction. Now that Musk and his billionaire buddies have moved in its lost all its charm and viability as all these clowns want is to make huge profits which has affected us all. Time to bail out and leave them to it. Trust the rich to spoil things for everyone else again....
Something like Etherium would be ideal as it’s available like Bitcoin and easy to buy and less expensive all round regarding fees etc. Come on LB, get it sorted!!!! Otherwise transactions on here will literally be unviable and folk will just go elsewhere due to prohibitive costs. The clock is ticking and this whole place could suffer irreparable damage......
Bitpanda keeps telling me "wallet balance too low"
I used bitpanda in the past with no major issues, but now I keep getting a "wallet balance too low" message, even though there is in fact sufficient funds in the wallet. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong folks?
It took me a little bit to spot this too...I don't think the fee has anything to do with how much you're sending. After you've put the recipient address in it brings up where you put the amount you want to send. The fee is right under where you type the amount in ... And it's there before you even put the amount in. I do this all on my phone by the way so I'm just assuming it all looks the same wherever you're doing it.
Last weekend the fees were up in the 20-25 quid area all Saturday so I just kept checking until it came down. About 8pm Sunday I checked and it was £4 and I made my purchase
The only way to check the fees that I can see is to start to make a transaction. So the way I check is I go to send BTC, then just pick an old address from the list of previous transactions and it will bring up the current fee price. Doesn't matter how much you're sending....the fee is based on how much BTC buying and selling there is going on at the time. Or so I heard. Buying in bulk is one way to spread the fee since its the same no matter how much your spend. That's not a great solution for everyone obviously.
The 'minimum transaction value' seems to vary on BP. Sometimes I have enough to make a $45 transaction plus fees, but others it demands I spend more as a minimum. I see the option being two fold. 1- Spend less on here 2 - Put more in my BP account and don't buy smaller weights. I can't see option 1 getting much of a look in tbh.
Seems the consensus is the Pax 3 for Vaporizer choice, Am happy to pay the amount for it but not until I work out if vaping is for me. Is there a half decent cheaper version I can try out first to see if it's for me before investing into a decent one like the Pax? Thanks for any help :)
I've got a Sapphire by Storm and it does the trick for me. I usually only vape flower if I've had a few beers so it's not used daily but it's easy to use, easy to clean, can produce some decent clouds on higher temps and when my first one stopped charging they sent me a replacement for free no questions asked.
+1 for Dynavap, as they are flame heated by a jet lighter ( electrical induction heaters are also available); the flame thing & the stick thing held in fingers satisfies the "like a spliff/pipe" brain & muscle memory ....Works well with flower, solid, wax ( with an insert) .
I have had a Pax 2 since launched, don't like it, a lot of work to clean, does not get to the temps required for solid, has poor airflow, is fiddly etc.
The XMax Starry is also good,various versions, removable power cell, I have a V2 (also sold under other brand names) and is not too expensive, vapes well, a bit fiddly to clean but I read that the V3 helps with that.
Tried a few and just got a Dynavap M which is defo my favourite! I suspected the battery vapes didn’t generate enough heat in the chamber whereas the Dynavap uses flame. Great smooth hit with all the benefits, eco on volumes but not worth going back to IMO- charge up fresh each use. Enjoy!
Not tried a pax, but a lot of people criticise them these days for being a PITA to clean, using lots of herb, and having so-so vapour and taste. They are still good for being discreet out in public due to the size though. If you are spending pax 3 money, you might as well go for something like an Arizer or Storz & Bickel vape which are rated highly. On the lower priced end, check out the Fenix Mini/Smono 3 (same vape under different branding), the Storm Sapphire or a Dynavap.
Think I'm going to have to just bite the bullet and go to the dark side. Hard to change habits when all i've done for 25 years is smoke it mainly through a bong. I tried a Vaporizer nearly 20 years ago. It was basically a heating element with a brass bowl encased by a glass jar with a clear tube hanging out the side. It tasted feral and didn't give me much of a buzz. I assume things have moved forward since those ancient relics.
Check out the vaporents subreddit, fuck combustion forum, and 420 vapezone for info on vapes. Youtube also has a ton of reviews.
The most consistently favourable reviews you see are for products from Storz and Bickel, Arizer, Dynavap and perhaps the Healthy Rips Fury Edge. You could consider a dedicated device for the shatter rather than a dry herb vape if you prefer concentrates.
I'm not quite sure what's happened but I think my software wallet got phished. I have lost damn almost everything i've ever made on here and i'm devastated. Literally gutted typing this.
I'm seriously considering packing all of this in as i'm struggling to get over how much time i've lost on grows and packing, the risk never mind the money but im up to my eyes in debt so its fucked and wondering if online is worth it for me.
The next few days are going to be pretty difficult for me processing whats happened. I genuinely think i'm going to have to go to a forest and eat mushrooms or something.
I genuinely am so happy I still have all my reviews on here and knowing I helped good people with weed they enjoyed that I grew. I'm just lucky i've still got that cause everything feels fucked right now. Big love guys
Aw guys. Overwhelmed reading this. I should have look at this earlier, it definitely would have helped. Jesus the first few days were tough, I couldn't eat or sleep or even smoke weed. I've been microdosing mushrooms that I was luckily able to pick from my own garden, they really really helped. And i'm back, i'm over it. It was just part of the process and I know when bad things happen to me it's because something better is always on the horizon. so thank you universe, you sick sick bastard.
I love you all. No joke, thank you. The past year or so had been really really tough on my mental health (besides rona) and running this shop gave me purpose again. I just wish I could do it legally.
With regards to what happened, I really don't want to get into it to be honest i'm still not entirely sure but im over it. but my messages/passwords were not compromised, everything gets deleted or stored in my brain. I'm now looking at a hardware wallet now and i'll be setting up a new address on here.
Right I'm for a reason, money does grow on trees, my people need their organic medicine and i'm not gonna recoup my loss by sitting around feeling sorry for myself so here we go.
The long awaited DURBAN POISON will be live tomorrow. I flowered all my mothers and they have been taking there sweet sweet time to finish (literally about a month longer than expected, shakes fist lol). I'm trimming it as we speak and will have photos tomorrow. This smoke is definitely for the oldschool heads. Pure Sativa, not too crazy on the THC a real breakfast smoke, I say this because i've been hitting bongs of it with breakfast xD I love life again peoples, I can't let money control me, i'm fucking blessed to be alive and thats some real shit, my lifes beautiful and everyday I show gratitude for it.
I was hoping a favour. I'd love to get this listed now but it's gotta cure in the jar for a week at least. I let it dry out in the soil for a week, then dry hung it for a week before the chop so it's gorgeous already, but, it still does need that kilner cure.
Once i'm aware of weight, which should be at least 3/4 ounces she was a huge girl.
I'm going to list it as a **PRE ORDER** to be shipped out in a week or so when the cure is ready, i'll give live updates on here. Due to coin being held for 16 days on here it will give me a leg up getting back in the game before christmas. After that should be Green Crack, Purple Punch, Zkittlez & Blue Dream in that order. All 1 larger plant batches.
If this is something people would like to see me do with other strains due to demand and me usually running out, well, i'd love that but understand if you want to get high rightaway, because, don't we all!
I'd also strongly consider, as mentioning by someone below, taking initial investments on grows, or deposits coming up to the end of grows. Hell, i'll even grow strains or a set number of plants for you and drip feed you your own stock from your initial deposit. Anything to make this work, I love growing, I love my customers. thank you!
true to my word have made pre order il be honest i dont smoke weed i use carts snd edibles but wanted to help you get back on feet i will gift this to someone but more inportantly hope in a very very small way helps and you know that people are rooting for you the world is a small place no one should ever feel alone
Sorry to hear this mate only just came across it. you have been helpful to many of the member on LB including myself so it really is sad to read this. theres not much i can offer you other than sympathy and postive energy for you to get back on your feet. all the best Cheers UKDD
Really sorry to hear that man. Was impressed with your Zkittles and have been waiting to see what was up next. Looks like you have plenty of love and support here on LB which wont bring the cash back but shows youre a stand up guy and are doing it right. Hoping to order again soon mate!
Change all your passwords, malware scan, use different hardware wallet/bitcoin wallet. If your in debt then selling weed is best/quickest way to get back on your feet, its almost christmas so could be busiest time of the year for you
Really sorry for your loss, devastating as it seems you can bounce back from this
I've only just read this...I'm so, so sorry to hear what's happened. You're clearly an amazing person, I hope this is just a step you can overcome and carry on all the better for it. Thank you for giving me your guidance and assurance, I really hope you continue with your work. Loadsa love. (◕ᴗ◕✿) xxx
Check the output transactions, if there are no output transactions and you still have access to your private keys, use an another wallet (like coinomi or invest in an hardware wallet) and send all your BTC to a new wallet asap.
If there are output transactions, then sorry, but you can't do nothing, as BTC transactions are irreversible (only if more than 51% of the nodes would agree to reverse to a previous block height, for you, you would have your BTC back)
I'm sorry for your lost, but you can move forward, just invest in a good hardware wallet and keep selling, don't look back, what's lost is lost, pointless and dangerous for the mind to think about the loss.
Really sorry to hear that. When people make so much effort to supply weed to there customers with such Passion and make a few pound this is shocking. The sooner weed is legalised the better where people who are making a living don't get ripped off.
Really sorry to hear this has happened to you dude. As my first buy on LB, I was really glad to be a customer of yours and I hope you can find a way to bounce back from this! You're clearly one of the good guys on here and care about doing things right.
Wow really sorry to hear this bro. My first order on here was for your first bit of Zkittlez and the way you dealt with everything really put my mind at ease ordering on here. Really hope you can get back up on your feet.
I'm afraid all I can offer is sympathy and suggest you check out coinfirm ( google coinfirm,reclaim lost crypto) a friend told me they helped him out in similar circumstances. No idea if they can help you,but If it were me,I'd be e mailing them right about now. Much luck with it,man.
This is awful! Im very sorry to hear it. Does anyone know how something like this could happen and any extra measures to take to prevent it? Not that i have anything to nick, wouldnt be worth their hourly rate. I wish you luck and hope you can resolve somehow
My first purchase on Lb was with yourself and the 'Grade' A service convinced me Lb was a decent place to aquire herbal happiness. Take some time to assess whats happened and learn from whats gone wrong so that you can protect yourself in the future. Good luck Bud hopefully this bullshit dosent keep you down.
Gutted to hear that mate. Keep your chin up there is a way out of any dark place I've been in a few financially and otherwise. In the cold light of day maybe having a solid reputation on here could be a god send if you think this is still viable. I'd say grow as a hobby as we all do/did..don't chase what you lost just see what surplus you end up with and I've seen myself the quality is there. You'll be missed on here if you pack it in but on a wider level look after yourself mate and think over what's next.
That’s what I would be scared of happening to me also as crypto is even more in the imagination of people than traceable money. Sorry to hear this though. All the best for the future, the only way is up;)
Oh man, that is absolutely brutal :( I'm so sorry to hear that. You seem like a nice dude too, that sucks.
Have you regained security over your wallet or is it still compromised? How do you think this has happened, did you become complacent and click on a phishing website or use a public network or even have a virus in your device? I am sure other users would be keen in knowing so they can avoid the same happening to them.
I know it is not much consolation but look at it this way, it's not like you lost your stash and cash because you got caught with it in the street which I'm sure feels a whole lot worse. You will live to fight another day.!
Hey mate - I am so sorry to hear this, that’s absolutely shit, really terrible. You’ve been such a positive force on LB it doesn’t sit right with me at all. You’ve been a great edition to LB and I think you’d be sadly missed if you left, but I would understand if you did. Gonna top up your tip jar now mate. Again I’m really sorry bro, but you’re a top guy and I know you’ve got that good energy to come out the other side bigger and badder!
