Nug Porn - From HELL

3 months ago

How are you dudes, dudettes and all good people of Smoke?

This is going to be the most fucked up nug porn ever. In my last grow I got a decent amount of #mouldy buds - mainly top colas that got conquered by botrytis - grey #mold. @indica suggested that I should keep some and study the plant matter a bit after it is dried and cured, so we can all see exactly how #shittyweed looks like. I'm so glad I have - just look at the fucking thing.


-It kinda looks cool

#Botrytis or grey mould is a fungus that is attacking plants that have been stressed, damaged or snapped in some place/s - it needs an entry point - often gets opportunity when high-stress training, ideal conditions to thrive is humidity of 60% or higher and temperatures below 70F (20 Celsius) with the lack of air movement. Spores are present everywhere in the air so you can only make sure that conditions are pitch perfect, which are then going to stop mould spores from inoculation.


-This would be the advanced form of mould spread that I have seen - nasty fucker

This is (or was) bud of Critical+, now its just a bunch of mould, or is it? Bud was sitting in a paper bag in my garage for about 3 months now. Totally forgot about it. He was crispy dry and smelling like I just pulled him out of the jar- unfucking believable. Could not believe with my nose that this is a mouldy smell from some shitty weed that has been sitting in a paper bag for 3 months.


-Nug was devoured alive inside out by this white vicious #fungus beast


-Botrytis doesn't like your leaves, but he loves your buds.

To someone inexperienced, this could easily look like a bunch of resin crystals, especially if the bud is "cleaned" and rolled a bit by mechanical force. It is scary how little effort did it take to make bud look "normal" again. Take a look.


-Broken up it looks only half as bad


-Before the cleaning "treatment"


-After of second of playing with them instantly, they look better but we can easily spot the mouldy bastard

After seeing this, I moved to the top cola again. I wanted to see how clean can I get them just rubbing it in. Gloves were on my hand so I had no problems digging in. Results were scary. Really scary.


-Sample before the "cleaning" - just look at the amount of crap on this thing


-Sample after cleaning - Here on the photo you can still see the webbing, but I must admit it cleaned up pretty well and with your naked eye it is hard to spot. If you take that this is the worst case scenario it is not hard to imagine that a little bit of mould inside the bud is really hard to spot with all these new extra resinous strains and the quantities of the weed we smoke.

I had only one tought in my mind - how much of that mouldy shit have I smoked in my life without even knowing. Fucking scary. And you are playing Russian roulette every time you buy from the black market. That is why I started to grow my own - the control. Do you think that some grower/dealer/gangster is going to throw a couple of ounces or pounds of mouldy weed in the trash like I am doing - think again.

I wanted an even better look at this Botrytis thing so I have picked a small bud from the bunch and pulled it under my trusty microscope that has impressive 100-500x magnification power.


-my jeans under 120x and my jeans under 450x

Prepare to enter some diferent universe!


-if you had the patience and a steady hand you could harvest all the trichomes


-one of the nastiest areas that I could find - white fuzz


-white fuzz up close

Be very vigilant when buying weed of someone you don't know or don't trust, or better just don't do it.

Best story with mold is the one without it.

EDIT: I cannot believe I forgot to warn not to smoke it but Easyrider32 got me covered.

Here in Canada the Government is selling moldy Cannabis to its citizens at the highly regulated Government Cannabis stores all across Canada. On top of that I have read horror stories about the chemicals some government regulated Cannabis growers are spraying on their weed to kill the mold. What a mess. Best thing is to grow your own and know exactly what you are growing. Inspect your Cannabis with a magnifying glass.

I agree wholeheartedly, Brother! However, the few times I bought from LP wasn't THAT bad, I guess I was lucky, I got no mold, just EXCESSIVELY DRY and BROKEN bud... Sadly, these fuckers in Quebec where I live amended the 4 plant/person allocation and set it to FUCKING ZERO. They even want to raise the legal age to 21! At least, we still have MyKush.ca! I NEVER want to see such sad degradation, it breaks my heart... COOL MACRO PICS though! VERY impressive tech you got! Great Work!

Despicable.

·

That's insane and unacceptable! Mold can make you very very sick!

·

Fuck dude, i tough canadians are the responsible ones... Where is this world going....

·
·

Nope.... too much money involved. It’s all about getting rich, stock options, and collecting taxes in Canada.

·
·
·

You are right on the ball my man, that is the world we are living in... The only way to change the things is to be the change you want to see in the world.

·
·
·
·

I’m trying..... I am here on Smoke.io and Twitter .... Growing my own High CBD Cannabis plants (male and female) to create seeds that I can hand out to billions of people for Free. Starting here in Canada. Not for the money but to heal the World.

Great stuff dude, I like your ambitions, it is great to have a goal - a purpose. When you perfect your strain grow shitloads, make oil, create a foundation - Growers for people in need - where oil will be donated to patients who cannot afford it... Who knows where will it take you. It costs nothing to try - so go for it!

Wow, unbelievable, how easy it was for you to hide the #mold. That is scary. The micro photos are fantastic. This is a great #educational piece.

·

Thanks dude, yeah the matter is nothing to laugh about. Let's hope regulation is going to bring some strict rules for testing the weed, I've seen some testing labs popping up all over US which is a great thing. But then again all that rejected weed from US coffee shops is being shipped to Europe as A+ top quality "California" product. Disgusting.

·

yeah, pretty crazy eh? who knows how much mouldy weed gets cleaned up and sold on to unknowing consumers... only recreational legalization can help prevent this

·
·

Nope,,.. Legalization has NOT prevented this. The Canadian government is selling Moldy cannabis and cannabis covered in chemicals.

Mould: https://www.wikileaf.com/thestash/ontario-cannabis-store-moldy-weed/

Chemicals : https://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/marijuana-supplier-hid-pesticide-from-inspectors-former-worker-says/article33962026/

VERY true, however at least there's legal recourse that can be taken & licenses revoked.

·
·
·
·

No... the company (Mettrum) that was spraying their weed with chemicals quickly sold their company to a larger one (Canopy Growth) so there is zero recourse. The people who smoked the mold and chemicals will just die and the Mettrum execs walk away with their cool millions. On an island somewhere... not our problem they say. We don’t own Mettrum anymore.

·
·
·

React is a more appropriate term instead of prevent.

·
·
·
·

Nothing at all can be done when the companies change hands... the people who are sick from smoking chemicals are left to die. Nothing is being done.

gross yet necessary education

WARNING TO ALL! Do not smoke moldy weed. That shit can get in your lungs (spores) and mess u w serious breathing problems / infections that take strong meds to fix ...

·

Forgot to insert a warning like that :D thanks for reminder dude. Btw can I steal it and just stick it in, on an edited post?

I have bought moldy weed before. Once I got it home and opened up the bag, I thought they were just fully loaded budz, well come to find out it was mold! Definitely a loss, thanks for sharing these pics so that others can see how easily mold can take over.

·

So sorry to hear that man, well at least you figured it out and had a choice of throwing it away. Lets hope we are geting people aware that this shit is out there.

Looks like some alien will jump out of it...


·

Yeah, that hole on the bud looks like something crawled in and hatched, or died...

My goodness, I feel so horrified seeing this!!! I could imagine people buying stuff like that not knowing they were cleaned off those molds. Only self grown cannabis could give us the best stuff free of chemicals... Thanks for featuring this here.

·

I bet a lot of people buy this kind of contaminated weed thinking its extra frosty trichomes, not mould :(

·
·

Oh my, and then you inhale those molds which get into your lungs... and got the impression those were fine and goodlooking trichomes! Yaks! Bahaha...

·

So true man, on the bright side things are getting better. Before on the street, you couldn't anything about the weed - not to question the mold thing. But yeah grow your own and smoke with pride.

Wow that is one nasty looking mother fucker. I have never had mold that bad. I am sure people clean that and sell ut tho and that is just sad to see.

Thabks for doing this experiment with that flower

·

Could not agree more dude, I was thinking twice touching it - with gloves. It was kindof fun, but not as fun as burning it will be :)

interesting the photos and especially the information to treat crops properly

·

Thanks dude, much apreciated!

Wow that looks really f-ed up. It looks like some spidernmadenthe bud it's home. Wait that shit actually happens in legal stores? How can they even do that? I thought they would care about the products they sell to people. Despicable.

·

Companies and corporations care more for money than for the health of their customers. Obviously this doesn't apply to all, but when responsibility isn't enforced people will do dreadful things for money, especially when doing the right thing means they lose money.

·
·

You sadly speak the truth. It's sad how they put more value on a piece of paper then on their customers.

·
·
·

Money over life. it does not matter what kind, or form, as long as we are making money. Wherever you look at - planet Earth.

Sehr coole bilder von ihnen. Vielen dank für diesen einblick.

·

Nieses Ding ist dieser Schimmel. Es ist gut, ein gutes Auge für saubere Lungen zu haben.

Oh my god that is fuckin nasty dude! Sweet post though.

·

Thanks man! Its nice to see all the support for educational pieces.

It would be awesome to get microscope and save a sample. That way you could detect if something is wrong during the grow phase.

·

Sorry dude, but I'm not doing it. Just imagine the time that you would need to check all your plants especially the inaccessible fat buds with a scope. I was spending between one and two hours every two days checking them up for mould in my last grow. Its much easyer to control the conditons.

·
·

I had problem with this shit when I was growing shrooms.

·
·

I meant generally, not you specifically

·
·
·

It's all good Psy, I'm just sayin it would be a pain in the ass. Don't cure the disease, cure the cause.

Man, that is NASTY! Cheers for doing this experiment, it should help others identify this horrible cannabis contaminant. Good thing you wore gloves, now burn it all with fire! haha decontamination!

·

Yeah, let's hope this is that kind of story where I went through all this shit, so none of you has to. Dude - gloves and garden clothes that I keep in the garage - I don't need any of the spores in the house. Oh, they are going to get burned alright - up the chimney. haha

great post. Thank you for showing you your jeans and then the bud. That's just nuts. Ive never seen anything like that before...

·

Me and you both. When you look through the microscope there is another freaky weard and sometimes neat world out there...

So etwas schmeisst man mit einem lächeln in den eimer. Aber rauchen... Never..

·

Kluges Wort mein freund,

wähh budrott

·

unglaublich

Dope

·

Crack weed

must be the most nasty mould i have ever seen,yakkes.

·

Yeah man, you can say that again :)

off-topic... but look at thaaaat:

and then I upvoted ... sorry ... maybe I shouldn't have?!

·

If your lucky number is seven you fucked up big time... :)

·
·

the mold is going to haunt me... oh noooooo!

·
·
·

Better you than me! ;)

·
·
·
·

Yeah, you've had your fair share already it seems.

·
·
·
·
·

Tomorrow I'm burning it, to be done and over with it, as it should be a long time ago.
