My weed tastes really bad once I get home
    #835702 - 01/07/19 04:15 PM (5 months, 14 days ago)

Hello, please help me, I know this is my first post, but I'm really getting desperate.

So this has been going on for a couple of weeks now, and has happened before. When I buy weed it always tastes really bad and doesn't smell like weed once I get home. It burns differently too, a lot harsher, sometimes sparks as well. The thing is it doesn't do that when I smoke it where I get it. It's quality bud, no question about that.
I got some from three different sources in a week, changed rolling papers, keep it clean, hell, I even started to wash and disinfect my hands prior to rolling. I have no idea what it is, and I wonder if anybody has experienced this or has a clue as to what is going on and how to avoid it, it's driving me crazy, especially when I seem to be the only one with that problem, my friends with the same weed don't know what I'm talking about. Does anyone know? Found one thread via Google from 2009 describing the same thing but no answers where posted. Thank you.

What kind of container are you storing it in?

Does anyone have access to your stash when you get home?

Try taking it to your friends house and roll a joint there with your gear, if you experience the same issues its your gear. I would suspect the grinder may have gotten contaminated try cleaning it with rubbing alcohol and remember to flush it with lots of hot water afterwords.

:goodluck:

Have you tried a different ignition source?

Cheap butane lighters or the naptha-based zippos can throw the flavor off, and are discouraged for fine cigars and pipe tobacco, so I would assume the same rules apply for good bud.

Additionally, a crappy flint-strike lighter can cause the sparks you are experiencing (and possibly the off flavor) by spraying out little flecks of flint and steel.

It's not the lighter or grinder, it's not the tobacco (I know) or papers... Halfway in the taste is back, it burns a lot hotter too, didn't mention that before. So what am I dealing with here?

Yea sounds like magic to me.

Something's not adding up. Are you talking about the same joint tastes and burns differently when you get home (like you're smoking half there and half when you get back)?

If not, the only thing I can think of is that your product may be right on the edge of being too dry when you pick it up, and it dries out a descent amount on the ride home. Even in an airtight bag inside of a conditioned humidor-type box...its going to dry out a little just because you are going from what I assume is a sealed container in thermal equilibrium at your dude's place to a bag/box who's air is fresh and able to pull extra moisture out of it.

Otherwise, if the situation is indeed how you described it, and you've completely eliminated all potential routes of contamination as you've described, and have control of the substance the whole ride home...then it may just be a case of contaminated perception.

I don't smuggle it in my underwear. We're talking about the same weed, not the same joint, because that would make sense. What I meant was I come home, roll a joint, taste is ok the first two drags, then is completely off again, stings in nose and throat, tastes like shit, smells like it too. I'm not pulling anyone's leg, nor is my perception contaminated, this is really happening.

If it changes mid-joint, especially if that change is then noticed for the rest of the baggie...then it's either a placebo effect, or you have a gas leak in your house, assuming you are maintaining your stash in the way you say you are. I'm not saying that's a bad thing, I for one have been caught in a "pot-hole" and had to ask people if my water tasted like heavy metals...only to realize that my ears were listening to heavy metal so groovy that my tastebuds were responding in kind. :shrug:

If the change is only noticed mid-joint for every joint rolled, then it's just a natural development of joints. Combustion products and resin tend to build up on the unburned material, and so over time the burn characteristics and flavor profile will change from freshly ground flower to resin and ashtray.

The magnitude of this transistion can be affected by the dimensions of the joint and how tightly it was rolled, as well as the type and proportion of tobacco you are mixing with it.

Either way...I'm about 99.5% sure that you needn't worry about it (unless your house truly has a gas leak). It is an interesting situation though :pipesmoke:

My honest advice.
1) Wash hands before handling.
2) Brush teeth use mouth wash
If this doesn't help.
3) Get a new source for weed.
Bad dry or cure mold or milldew to much leaf in product none of these things taste good.
But note seen this thread before and it was a sad troll.

you know when you smoke weed the tar/resin the smoke produces has to go somewhere, so youre taking a drag making the smoke pass through the herbs...the herbs get coated with some minor resin...making the taste change a bit...

Both my weed and tobacco do the same thing, even smoked separately, but it's less. I've been smoking for 20 years now, I'm familiar with most things that can go wrong, but not this... It's like dust or something, only I've ruled that out from the beginning. Like most obvious stuff really..

I had a pipe back in the day that had a middle chamber. Place a nug in the middle and screw it on. I would usually smoke at least an ounce through it before smoking it.

It was usually pretty dry but I still enjoyed it.
