    Swim has never ever seen black tar heroin, and wants to know a little bit more about what's going on. What is China White and how does it differ from tar? SWIM has always gotten something called "China White" but its almost always off-white to darkish tan. Is this truly China White or is it just tar somehow altered?

    China white is highly pure heroin, basically heroin in its stage before it is cut with other ingredients to produce the tanned powder heroin or the rock-like black tar. You can Wikipedia this info. There's also a list, easily obtained online, of all the different types of H, designated by number. For instance, the tan powder SWIY has seen is probably #3 H. Black tar, from Mexico, used to be the standard in the U.S. but is slowly being replaced with powder, which is popular because it can be snorted by SWIY or SWIM.

    What SWIY has been getting should have been all white if it is china white really. If it is tan then it is likely to have been cut

    In VA china white refers to the base of the Heroin. Swims experiences have taught him that china white is fentanyl based. Many people have od'ed from china white and nothing is really stronger than it. Swim suggest finding out whats inside of your H before injecting a huge shot

    In searching for China White I came accross a Novelty Powder called this. I assume it's not the same thing. Has anyone came accross this? If anyone knows about this substance can u please tell me about it and what the experience was like? Thanks :)

    China White is heroin from Golden Triangle, S.E Asia, first made famous by the brand Double U O Globesold to the GI's in vietnam. In the 70's it was the most common type of H in the US.

    Fentanyl is not China White, it is a very dangerous active cut that is 100 times more potent than morphine but less euphoric. Shady dealers tell customers it is china white when infact it is fentanyl with a cut. OD very common as it is active at <1mg.

    More recently Columbia has started to produce no 4 heroin and this is often called china white, it isn't china white but is the closest thing to it, it's colour can range from grey to tan to actual white like it should be. It is often 80-90% pure, occasionally 95% but rarely as pure as actual China White.

    Real China White is only made from Opium collected by hill tribes in golden triangle, Hmong, Akha, Lisa, Lahu etc. Most labs are owned by Shan people of Myanmar, but there are also labs in Laos proboblly owned by high ranking Laos Army and politcians. The labs are staffed by highly proffessional Chinesse with a high level of labortory skills, therefore quality and consistancy can be compared to Pharmaceutical sector of the well known brands.

    The same regarding quality control cannot be said of any other production area.

    In France it's called Chinese grey because it is an off white color so it shouldn't be confused with Thai White which is a better quality (at least coming from the factory).

    For the record, "China White" is not a technical name. It certainly has been used to refer to fentanyl in the past (see the Erowid entry, for example). Fentanyl is highly dangerous. This is not to say that what SWIY is being offered is fentanyl- it is nice sounding name which might be used to sell heroin.

    It's such a shame too, all that opium in Afghanistan being made in to an inferior product and then when it hits the shores of the destination country it's made worse by adding cuts whatever they may be (anything from violin wax to paracetamol, apparently).

    Such a crying shame. If we could get a proper quality product every time even though it may be illicit still it would go a long way to cutting out many of the problems associated with addiction. Even if it was cut 50% as it was supposedly done with so called "blue magic" then still you know basically what you're getting and I know "American Gangster" was 90% fiction but still apparently Frank Lucas called it that. Who knows the truth.

    Here in Australia, China white or no.4 is pretty much the only gear you will see being sold. It is a white powder that easily dissolves in water. I'm pretty sure China white is like the purest form of heroin you can get on the streets. China white should be white and white only, if there's a darkish tan color then it ain't China white. Unless it could be the cutter, but usually cutter for China white is also another white powder.

    While that is pretty much accurate enough, I'd suggest that any white powder from cocaine to "China White" heroin can be white to "off white" but I would agree that "tan" would mean it doesn't qualify for "China White" but I would assume it still dissolves in water alone and doesn't require an acid such as citric or ascorbic acid, right?
