    Found the local Hanf House over the weekend! I'm pretty stoked about that. Figured I'd try what they had. You can buy a small duftsackli for 16 swiss francs and a big ass bag for 99. The big bag must have 2 pounds in it! Its like a damn pillow it was so freaking big!

    I bought a small one caus I want to check it out before buying the pillow. :p Anyway, theres some decent buds in it. Lot of seeds and some stems. Not the choicest, but for 10 bucks who cares!

    When I lit up a bowl I got nothing... NOTHING off it. Maybe the slightest buzz I've felt. I think I've buzzed harder smoking a cigar.

    Is it possible that the weed was just too old and dry? There was a lot of shake in the bag, and it was a bit on the crunchy side.

    The girl behind the counter tried selling me a little glass pig with 3 very choice looking buds inside. But it was 80 francs and I didn't have that much on me. I'm thinking I either got a really crappy bag or the shit just is way too old to have anything left. Is that possible?

    Peace Out.

    Weed can absolutely be too dry! It will just crumble apart and you'll end smoking and smoking and getting no where. Take your weed, seal it up in something air tight with some pieces of bread. The weed will absorb the moisture in the bread. Leave it overnight and smoke it tomorrow.

    Thanks, MJmama!

    I just knew it had to be too dry. Crackling between your fingers and in the bowl is not the way to enjoy those buds. Going to try to get them some moisture and see how the smoke up.

    Can I eat the bread then too. ;)

    hey i find bags in my room all the time and the buds burn in like 2 or 3 hits outa my bowl so i just take the bag and put a orange peel in it just about a 1"/1" square in a 1/8 of bud. Dont put much more than that in it or it will get soggy way to soggy and it take forever to get it to start to burn. but this always helped my bags and gave a lil extra flavor.

    If its picked recently, and is still really moist, you can get ripped, because when you buy an ounce, and let it dry, and you have 17 grams, it kinda pisses you off. Especially when you paid more than usual, and end up getting less.

    Thanks again, guys. Guess you can tell I'm a smoker, not a grower. I guess the Swiss can make a kick ass watch, but they just can't get their weed to the same standard. :p

    Yeah... and I guess spending as little as I did for the bag I bought probably taught me something too. Here I was so wanting to buy that 99 franc bag, just because of how damn big it was! I swear it weighs 2 pounds. :eek:

    ...well did you seriously expect a pillow size bag full of weed for $10 to be good?

    P.S. i think the europeans try to take advantage of americans..or people that dont speak fluent dutch

    I don't think the wetness or dryness of the weed has anything to do with THC content, although whenever I get shitty shwag it's usually dryer than the Sahara. But that isn't to say I haven't had some premium bud that was on the dry side before.

    The pillow sized bag was 99 francs. The $10 bag was only about the size of your typical sandwich bag. It was pretty full, and I didn't bother to weigh it.

    Actually, I've heard that the duftsackli is supposed to be a great way to get cheap buds. That's why I had to try it. Since Switzerland decriminalized weed, it's pretty easy to get and you can't get busted for smoking it. I've even seen people growing it outside on their patio.

    For $10, I don't think I could go wrong. I bought a bag hoping it was going to be some great buds, and it wasn't. I do have the seeds though, and I'm planning on having my own little plants growing out on the patio. :D

    Should be a nice summer.

    one problem with buying dry bud is that when it's dry, the dealer can get away with selling you a sack that doesn't weigh enough, but since it's dry it looks like the same volume as good bud and if you don't weigh it yourself you get a seriously shorted bag. It's okay to buy dry bud, it just needs to look like more than it actually is

    I use to do the whole apple peal to add moisture to my dry bud when i got some. But I have stoped doing that cause adding moisture to weed doesn't really sound like a good idea, and it fucks with the bud, but thats just my oppiono. If you get a lot of weed for 10 bucks or francs or whatever chances are its going to be low grade last year crap. Ya get what you pay for, and no amount of slices of bread in your weed is going to help the qaulity of your high! so just don't buy cheap bud and expoect its going to be a good smoke...
