Hey fireman, welcome to the world of pot. The weed you're talking about has been pressed, not condensed. Condensed is what you do to soup.fireman said:Hi. I'm sort of new to MJ.
A friend gave me abt half an ounce.
But it was condensed in a block.
He said that it is condensed, and that I should steam it.
What will steaming it do?
Has anybody done this?
Another old guy! Heh Heh. The THC is unaffected by pressing. The appearance is degraded and pressing increases the chance of mold and bacteria because of the heat that is insulated by the brick. Most dealers that trade in bricks have a routine decompression regimen they follow to make the weed more appealing to the buyer. Most buyer don't even notice. The weed is slightly re-hydrated by the process.GanjaGuru said:Brick weed jeez I haven't seen any of that crap since '70.
We used to just break it up and smoke it.
We got it in 1-kilo bricks. Back in '67 they were available for $100.00 each.
When you press weed into bricks, you severely impact it's quality. Once pressed, you cannot restore it to it's original quality.
I think all re-hydrating would do is make it burn a bit better. It might keep a few of the trike's from separating.
If all you have is an ounce or less, it's really not a problem. I'm talking about Kilos. With a K, yeah, it's better to unpack it and rehydrate it. For personal smoke, just break off a piece and smoke away.fireman said:Kewl.
So then it would be better to rehydrate it than to leave it pressed because it burns better right?
And there will also be less chance of mold and bacteria as well if I rehydrate?
Man, there's something about throwing bud in a trash can that makes me weird out.Your Moms Box said:they use those household kitchen trash compactors.-
