A little background info first: I've seen this bud around here that was absolutely LOADED with pesticides. It looked extremely crystaly for beasters, and when smoked it would make snap, crackle, and popping noises. When smoked as a blunt, we smoked almost the entire blunt without even ashing it. The ash on the end was about 1 1/2 inches long before it finally fell off. And when it did break off, it stayed in one big inch and a half long piece, didn't fall apart or crumble like ash normally does. Needless to say I stopped smoking this very quickly, and told my friend he should stop buying it.
Now recently, I picked up some niiice headies. The problem is, they snap and pop when smoked too. Not nearly as much or as loud as the beasters my friend had, but in a similar way. Smoked as a blunt it ashes completly normally though. So my question is, do you think there is something on this? Does some weed just do this naturally?
