Is anyone extremely mold-paranoid like me?

Discussion in 'Apprentice Marijuana Consumption' started by HxCurt, Mar 20, 2012.

  1. I get VERY mold paranoid. I get almost OCD about it, look as close to the bud as possible. I start to think the THC is mold. It's almost like I'm on something and hallucinating a little bit, I convince myself there is mold randomly. I sometimes even throw away buds I refuse to smoke / share because I'm worried there is mold.

    But, I'm pretty sure there isn't in the end.
  2. I figure if i smoke the mold it will cure this cold i have like penicillin ;)
  3. I do the exact same thing. I get a light and look at the buds closely and just convince myself it looks moldy.

    But then I just smoke the bud and forget about it. I know my buds aren't moldy but I just convince myself it looks like mold.
  4. I was reading a study and 14/15 MJ samples had traces of mold, apparently everyone has a little bit on their buds. I figure as long as you're not smoking those big purple cottonballs of mold (I gag thinking about it) you should be fine.
  5. I know smoking mold won't be good for you, but everyone thinks it'll kill you lol. I smoked an oz of moldy bud without knowing it and only got a few headaches?
  6. Don't be that paranoid, no, mold is not good, and if it's BLATANTLY obvious, don't smoke it
  7. Hon, the best solution is to grow your own! I buy a gram now and then from the dispensary for a new flavor, but most of what I (and 2 other MMJ patients) smoke comes out of my 2 x 5 closet! :D Never any chemicals used, no adulterants- just good clean cannabis! :smoke:

    And Jays, you were just plain old LUCKY! :cool:

    Contaminated cannabis is one reason we NEED cannabis legalized! If someone sold moldy parsley and you got sick, at the least, you could sue them, if not get them put out of business by the FDA!

    As long as cannabis is illegal, about all you can do when these things happen, is just be another victim! :( This type of thing can ONLY happen when cannabis is prohibited and illegal!

    Become an activist!

    Send a packet of MMJ articles to a suffering friend, relative or co-worker (anonymously, if need be. The post office does not require return addresses. ;) ).

    Comment on an online news article! You going to let those lying (or mis-educated) idiots go unchallenged, when you know the facts? :eek: And with my List (bottom of my sig) you can back yourself up with PubMed studies! :D It's awful hard for them to continue to claim "pot causes cancer" after you suggest that they read "
    [FONT=&quot]{Delta}-9 Tetrahydrocannabinol inhibits growth and metastasis of lung cancer[/FONT]"! :devious: )

    Write those bone-headed politicians- you, as a voter, are their BOSS! Remind them that every vote counts and this IS an election year! :rolleyes:
    Contact Elected Officials |

    But above all, EDUCATE YOURSELF! :yay:(You know it's your favorite subject, anyway! lol :smoke: )

    None of that is too hard, or dangerous, for you to do!

    Besides halting all the arrests for cannabis, ending cannabis prohibition also ends adulteration and poor quality! It cuts down on rip-offs and muggings because you can report it to the cops, safely! Varieties can become standardized, so your "White Widow" buds, seeds, or clones, are actually "White Widow"! And to make it even better, prices WILL drop! (Are you going to pay $10 a gram for something that grows like a weed? :confused:)

    2012 is supposed to be a year of change- let's make legalization one of the changes! :smoke:

    Granny :wave:
  8. i don't grow my own and i never worry about mold and have never got it. I keep it in jars, and baggies and whatever else and it never gets moldy. unless you live in a damp basement or have shitty weed connection i wouldnt be worried man
  9. nice to know im not the only
  10. i get very paranoid, same type of thing.
    I have had it on my crop, I have trimmed moldy crops, and encountered much mold in regular life and at work. I probably have some in my lungs growing.

    Whenever I find mold on my buds I just make tincture or hash oil, unless its a bit and i am jonesing, in which case I will smoke them.

    I have read it is much worse to vaporize moldy weed versus smoking it, although both should probably be avoided.

  11. woah..

  12. double woah. Woah!

  13. It depends on the kind of mold. I guarantee that there are kinds of mold out there that are straight up edible, and some that will kill you if you inhale just a few spores.
    I have never had "moldy" weed to that ive had to throw away or even just a lil bit on a bud. Maybe cause ive always used airtight containers and have never really used just baggies or whatev.
  14. i've learned to absolutely despise mold after growing unmentionables.
  15. I'm a grower, i can tell you weed rarely has mold on it. You can fix this problem by growing your own weed indoor. Or just shut up sit your ass down your weeds not moldy get high :D
  16. skunky monkey is funkayyy.
  17. Fix this problem? Growing your own is not a solution to mold problems.

    Depending on where you are from, chances are that sooner or later you will battle some kind of mold on your crop. I don't know your experience or location but it is next to impossible to keep outside contaminants from reaching your grow space.
  18. what you do is cross your legs, switch, then fall out your chair.

  19. I said indoor.. you will feel more reasured that your buds not moldy if you grew it, trust me weed on a growing plants soooo obvious.

    And mold usually occurs when your drying/curing. if you properly dry/cure it you will be good. :smoke:
