Here in the cryptoverse there is no way to prove an imported product. This makes it easy to claim anything and for the items that are actually imported, impossible to believe. Seems it would be quite easy technically to look out for this BS and clean it up.
I've never purchased any of these strains, but that they are an option seems only a good thing. There will be people that take advantage of that, just like there already is with any other claim of a weeds origin, or even strain, but it also allows the real deal to be sold.
I think we should be left to make that decision ourselves, not have them removed, which will be the result of a ban on claiming its origin, as that is what commands its price. There are so many options here, that no one needs to pay those prices for that weed, real or otherwise. My 2c.
Essentially, you can 'claim' anything. In the cryptoverse there is really no way to prove anything. If people choose to buy 'Cali' weed online, they take the rough with the smooth as far as I'm concerned. It's the buyers responsibility to follow up and ask questions of the vendor. It's up to the vendor to address any buyers' objections. This may be done with or without proof. It's then up to the buyer to decide if the vendor stands up to scrutiny or not. Banning the term 'Cali' essentially opens up a can of worms. Buyer beware and sellers back up your claims. It's simple as that. I won't risk 'Cali' weed because I cannot verify it. Seems like a pretty simple and logical buying methodology. Belief is down to you. Proof is the vendor's business.
Oh god, don't get someone started on that barcode stuff, apparently it's super easy to fake! lol Don't see why some people are so intent on vexing about this topic; use your common sense, you're either willing to pay premium or not, chat to the seller and see if you're comfortable laying the wedge, and worst case dispute it if you think it's fake / you've been misled. Banning terminology, ffs, where does it end? There's always going to be people trying to mug you off, be sensible and you probably won't get burned. Peace and love biggas PS don't be that guy and shit post on established vendors when you haven't even purchased the product!
I agree HMT. I've been happily, every now and again, been ordering 'Cali'. V pricey, yes. If it isn't 'cali' I'm pretty happy as its been v good quality IMHO. Just taken the plunge with a newish but well respected LB vendor on some $130-ish an 1/8 Cali (nice bag and everything!) At worst I'll still be $130 worse off but with some weed. In these times I'll take that as a general result in life. Maybe I'll be pissed off for a day or two but that'll be it. Anyway, I'm rambling now. Not sure if 'Cali' claims should be banned. let the reviewers tell the tale.....
Yeah I'm opposed to it, I find it ludicrous that it's such a big thing that people are making threads over it. If your not interested scroll past. Oh and I'm gonna put a proper thread up later but it appears using the cannverify app that the Cali I got today is actually from California. As for the codes being easy to fake one Reddit post (which is all the proof I have seen so far) does not a 100% factual statement make. So yeah I'm opposed to this suggestion ;)
Have always thought this as ppl charge premium prices for cali. Some ppl buy cali as it is seen as dispensary quality stuff. So they don't want to put anything in their bodys and trust sellers thinking theyre buying superior qwaulity product less harmful to health.
I would completely agree this would solve many problems, just looking through and there are some really amazing newish sellers but they are right at the bottom below all the "Cali" too which seems unfair.
Ban ban ban if you ask me, charging a premium for something and not having to supply any real proof (for opsec obviously) leaves way too much room for cheeky beggars.
Your shake to smoke is very good but just because your not on the wall doesn't mean you should support the above posters. It's more likely that the products you vend are niche and due to that and the lower engagement you get on posts because of the goods will likely translate into no wall time. Have you considered perhaps offering a budget conscious but less shaky and more bud like offer as that's something LB could always do more with (in my opinion)
