I have bought several hash and Thai (which is compressed in nature) from DIUK and all has been good. Top quality vendor. Thinking of buying some bud and most products have very good reviews. However, several reviewers have mentioned overly vac packed goods. Is this just aesthetics though? Does anybody feel it affects the quality? I understand why vac pack is used but if there is a REAL issue should DIUK be made aware? I tell myself it shouldn’t matter but which book do you buy in the shop, the copy with a slight scuff or the pristine one behind it? Does it really matter? It all gets smoked (the weed not the book!). :)
Sad to say that my last two orders have been totally ruined imo due to the over the top vac packing. DI are one of my favourite vendors due to their reliable service and high quality products but I'm starting to use them less and less due to this. Its frustrating as its doesn't have to be sent out like this. Every other vendor seems to of found a way that doesn't suck the life out of the bud by the time it gets to us. I hope they sort this out asap. Fair enough its a safe way to get the product to us punters but I literally just spent about ten minutes peeling my $63 henry of candy land out off the plastic packaging. Its flat as a pancake and looks tiny as fuck. Lovely smoke tho :-)
I hadn't thought of the negative effects of over packaging on quality. On the other hand, I am waiting on two orders which have been a while so I fear might have been sniffed out.
Whilst weed is illegal I would opt for well packaged. I wonder if there could even be a new invention like returnable milk bottles for weed - a container that is stealth that customers pay a deposit for then send back... or circulate somehow...? just an idea.
You could always simply try to buy off an actual person I supposed. It would save a lot of money. But I just love the range on LB. I don't care that much about the vendors. LB is like Amazon to me, I search for what I want and while I'm at it see a few other things I never knew I wanted but now do.
It's nicer to actually get something rather than pay for nothing though. It must be hard to get it right as a vendor. Anyone had anything not turn up before?
I have just received an order that is IMO ruined as it is so ridiculously vacuum packed. I can definitely say this is my last order from drugs inc as not only is it squashed like a truck rolled over it but it has taken 7 days to arrive with 2 days not being sent out after being paid. Past orders from them and from other vendors prove that it is not necessary to over pack and ruin an order, and it is possible to send out expeditiously. Very disappointed ☹️
I’m surprised no one else has mentioned this but cut the vacuum seal. Leave for a few hours then put in a jar with boveda packs. I prefer 58s but some prefer 62s. I don’t think this is an issue personally. Boveda packs will bring anything back to life and I scrape the plastic to try to get any wastage back.
I'm afraid I've stopped using this vendor , and its partly for this reason. I've had many orders totally ruined (IMO) by over zealous packaging. By the time you scrape the bud away from the plastic its almost become a part off, you can see all that lovely oil and tricombes covering the plastic your about to bin, instead of being in your smoke. If you want compressed bud you can buy it that way and its cheaper, but for my money, proper grass doesn't look like its been run over by an articulated lorry.
There's also an issue of trust in that they regularly copy and paste a picture or advert that bears little resemblance to what they are selling. In the past its not been so bad as what I got, even if it were not what was advertised, was still banging, but more recently they have been selling poor quality smoke like the 'berber cream pollum' which was as weak as RB's dissapointing Gorilla Glue. I'm not rich, so having to give away smoke because its so rubbish (like I had to with the berber) is not something I'm prepared to do. Ultimately, everyone will make their own judgements. A year ago I would have told you DIUK were one of the best vendors and you could trust em. Unfortunately my experiences in the last year mean I can no longer recommend them and I do my business elsewhere and get far better gear in far better condition as a result.
Sometimes its not too bad. Had many a flattened deal off DIUK. Not all were a problem. But the worst was 7g of strawberry haze that was ruined. The grinder could not bring it back. I got about half the amount of spliffs from the Q as i should have. I havent ordered with them since becuase i keep seeing "we've fixed the issue" ...and then more complaints. This has been over the course of 2yrs. I dont think they are bad vendors, not by any means! Some of the nicest smoke ive had on LB was from DIUK, but squashed weed is a constant complaint.
I got some Candyland Cookies from DIUK and it looked like the bud had been stamped on, really vac-packed. I think I was hoping for the bag appeal they delivered with the Mac 10 - aaaaaaah! In all honesty it makes fuck all difference once ground up though. I gave it a 9/10 so I don't think I'll topple their empire. I can live with the over zealous packing as they tend to deliver excellent product regularly. Its certainly not enough to stop me from using them. The CC is lovely, btw.
I have had many many orders from diuk and I can honestly say the vac thing has only ever messed up 1 strain for me as it was flat...this could also have been during postage so it may not even be the vac pack that did it.
Even the ones that have been tightly vacuumed still smoke like normal and once its been ground up you couldn't tell the difference.
Depending on what your preference is to sativa or indica I'd recommend either the sour sop (indica) or the candyland cookies (sativa)...both of them are in my regular rotation and they are both great strains :)
Enjoy whatever you try and don't let the packing worry you too much dude :)
Thanks the reassurance goes a long way. I believe it is a non issue but it niggles me when I read a glowing review about how the product is absolutely banging but then ends with “flat as a pancake from vac packing though”. Then I say to myself, fking hell man it’s weed delivered to your fking door - think about it - be bloody grateful !! :)
I disagree, when your orders regularly take 10+ days to land (still waiting on an order from 12/03) and the bud has sat in a vacuum packed to shit package for the best part of 2 weeks it definitely does affect the quality of the bud. This will be my last order with DIUK. Simply can’t deliver on any of their regular promises regarding ridiculously slow deliveries which are poorly packaged. All the other vendors I use on here have got this shit nailed so why bother messing around to save a few dollars.
I beg to differ, I find when the air is sucked out of it makes the herb really hard and kinda brittle weather this was due to the actual type of weed I don’t know or weather it affects the quality of how it smokes I cannot say. But a lil annoying when they say they have the vac sorted then yet again another flat pack arrives. I stopped ordering from them now because of this.
