    Baboon has two different bags of H, one coming from streets of unknown purity, but baboon stimates up to 80% according to dosage experiences. The other one comes from a lab and it's purity should be up to 99%.

    Both batches are odorless pure white and finely powdered looking almost the same when exposed to appropiate light, tiny brilliant crystals.

    Taste, however, is a little different, the street stuff is almost tasteless with a little chemical taste, only noticeable when enough amount is tasted. The lab stuff is also very little tasting, but the taste is SWEET:eek: and I do mean sweet, just like sugar but unlike sugar it has also a chemical after taste.

    I know sugar or other sugar-like agents can be used to cut drugs but baboon is pretty sure his lab stuff is as pure as stated above. So, what does H taste like to your monkey?

    Ahh the ole purity subject. Purity cannot be determined without chemical analysis.

    The more pure Heroin is the more bitter it should taste.

    Hope this has been of help :)

    The best heroin SWIM gets tastes VERY sweet aswell! It literally tastes like a handful of sugar-coated apricots. He has no explanation for this phenomenon, but several of his other buddies have also mentioned occasionally encountering particularly sweet (and also particularly potent)tasting batches of scag. Question: Is SWIY referring to the taste of his product when dabbed on his tounge, or is he referring to the taste of the vapor when he chases the dragon?

    SWIM got this sweet heroin before but when he snorted it minimal to no effects were felt. Upon smoking the heroin smoke tasted really bad like chemicals and felt some effects.
    Anybody know why? SWIM got heroin crystals (H4) before also and snorting was really powerful.

    Mmmmm, SWIM knows that Heroin is very different from here in the UK to over in the US.... Firstly... In SWIMs' experience and opinion, H always has a very bitter taste. When SWIM chases the dragon in the UK, you will almost certainly get a notable chemical taste that is compariable to tablet taste. Colour also varies here, SWIM can get off white fine powder form to salmon pinky powder to very dark brown powder, and everything in between. In SWIMs opinion, here, the whiter the H the better purity, if it's salmon pink, it's almost certainly been extracted from pill form, with the darker stuff, this can be the most potent, but it can also have been cut with sleeping tablets and the euphoria...... SWIM will miss it all as SWIMs' asleep..

    SWIM is very intruiged to know about the different varieties of H over the pond! Different types and potency etc.... Can anyone explain them to SWIM?

    SWIMs black tar that he gets tastes vinegary of course but a coffee type sweet natse is present. SWIMs habit is like thgat of a cigaree=tte smoker except a lot less frequesnt. a good couple hits SWIM loves th taste andd chase of the dragon and goes on his day happily. SWIM is happy gettin a dub every couple days like twice a week.

    SWIM knows that acidic 9v battery taste!

    SWIM has found in black tar heroin, the stronger the vinegar (acetic/ethanoic acid) smell & taste - the stronger the product. SWIM misses the "lung hit" one gets when IV'g. In SWIM's area it's tar, one gets everything from Mexico. But if one is in Florida for example, Columbian and Dominican white heroin is available.

    somebody is from detroit. and the dope there is usually darkish grey turns brown in water easily dissolving without citric, and according to articles on the net, most blow in usa comes from south or latin america, except detroit and east coast ,baltimore ect. the taste and smell more vinegar the better, however if way too much vinegar or a chicken ramen noodle tainted vinegar then its complete shit not worth 2 bucks even if its as big as a nick

    what's wrong with you all, guys?!...it seems you all take a spoon to taste your H before smoking it! lol (or snorting/ IV'g,....) to be honest in almost 15 years of H consumption SWIM rarely tasted any of his batches; and there are mainly 2 reasons for that: first, it's surely not by tasting the scag that SWIM will know how good it is, for that purpose SWIM has to chase the tricky dragon; the second reason is SWIM considers it is a pointless waste of stuff to taste...anyway, what SWIM can tell you about this subject is that around here H is always (with no exceptions) a brownish powder, sometimes (many) in rock form, varying from a very light brown (usually the best) to a darker brown (not too dark though) and normally the darker the tracks left on the foil are the better the dope is (this has some exceptions)

    Unfortunatelly no china white can be found around here; SWIM already had a lot of china white but that was elsewhere in Europe, in Germany; anyway, in general SWIM wouldn't trade the dope one can find in Germany for the dope we do find here in south europe, ours is definitely stronger

    well SWIM forgot to mention that whenever he tasted his batches, these were always bitter, very bitter....and to be honest that sweet taste doesn't sound too good to SWIM....SWIM can imagine how terribly that flavour must be when chasing the dragon...

    see ya

    The very sweet stuff is actually sugar. It's fentanyl sold of as diamorphine mix with loads of sugar (not your typical sugar, fructose i think it was since it melts nicely). If the fentanyl mix is just right, you will pretty strong fake-diamorphine, but if the fentanyl is measured wrongly, it will probably do you nothing.

    Real diamorphine tastes bitter, the pharmaceutical batches taste bitter and the afghan/turkish imports taste bitter with a hint of ground/soil after taste.

    The reason the fentanyl batches are so sweet is because so little of it is needed and the best bulking agent to make up almost 90% of the weight is sugar. Sometimes fentanyl is mixed with normal diamorphine cut with other stuff such as paracetamol.

    Israeli/Jewish dealers normally get pharmaceutical batches, how I don't know. But they mostly target celebrities and even the pharmaceutical batches are sugared down. If you're in that circle and can afford large amounts, you will have good quality stuff.

    Here is not a good place to talk about grandmothers pharmacy. But as you all know, many times grandmother decides to get H on an occassion promising its the last time, deleting all the numbers on her phone loosing contact to all her good friends.

    But Portugal is known to be an area where alot of Turkish as well as south American H bypasses which in itself will grant you good contacts if you know the right people. Try making friends with club owners, bar owners and celebrity tour managers. E.g. someone who manages a celebrities stay in that country. Most of them are also responsible for organizing any substances a celebrity might need on their stay. For example, someone, lets say X, comes on tour in Portugal either for movie premieres or music, and demands the host to organize his or her needs. Such people of responsible for organizing the habitual needs too, often through good contacts, e.g. Snoop Doggy Dogg tours Sweden, but has a notorious marijuana habit, the host will provide all of that, most of the time some of the best. You will also be surprised the opioid needs of some celebrities or figure heads such as the Osbournes, Politicians, and Actors/Actresses.

    But lately, grandmother has not used opioids as its that time of the year where the sun itself keeps her happy, and hopes the healthy routine continues.

    joojoo99 added 3 Minutes and 14 Seconds later...

    But Portugal will be hard to see any pharmaceautical grade to circulate, countries with such occurrences are the U.S., France, U.K. or India. On the other hand, Portugal will most likely have good grade non-pharms similar to that of Spains providing you know the right people.

    joojoo99 added 3 Minutes and 37 Seconds later...

    But to mention the UK, and the Jewish involvement in pharmaceutical grades is well known, but they are not petty dealers, mainly staying within the community and targeting the wealthy. Believe it or not, last year, Rabbi's were arrested for having links with heroin dealings. Google it, it should come up.

    SWIM has some stuff that rolls properly, if a little more watery, but tastes really fucking sweet. He knows it's mostly bunk though and some in another bag won't roll properly :(

    It's fucking rank and he's thinking about injecting it, but he knows this is a bad idea.

    Swim's heroin tastes proper rank! Really bitter, rancid, disgusting taste. And the better the gear, the worse it tends to taste...Whenever she's put the cap of her pin in her mouth without thinking, after using it to squeeze her filter out - EURGH!

    Swim's never had heroin that tastes "sweet" before. If she did, I'd have to say she'd be rather suspicious of its content. Sweet tasting gear implies some idiot has attempted to cut it with something glucose-like.

    But as someone said in an above post, UK gear is very different to US gear.

    As for judging purity percentages, it's nigh on impossible to do. The only instance when a swimmer can know for sure what percentage of their gear is actual diacetylmorphine is if they've been busted with it, and the details of the lab analysis are given to them. In which case, they've got much worse things to be worrying about.

    Incidentally, one of swim's acquaintances got caught with about an eighth of gear during the drought last year. You know, the really awful crystalising shite. Anyway, it turned out that it was less then 2% heroin. He still got done with possession with intent though, they don't regard the total amount as 2% of an eighth, it's still an eighth of street heroin in their eyes...what a kick in the teeth, eh? That's adding insult to injury, he's looking at jail time and his gear's fucking crap!
