    Ok, I got a bag a week ago, stuffed it in a sock in their drawer, and just pulled it out today and there is this yellowish residue all over the buds. I was just wondering if that was normal or if its some kind of mold or something harmful. any advice is appreciated.

    Have SWIM Take a picture and post it. It's too vague to answer. Was it moist when you got it? What was the color then? Was the bag sealed? Edited by: MrJim

    If it's much drier now, that might just be kief. If it smells or tastes off, it could be mold.

    It's just as dry as it was before...i was just informed by a friend that it's probably mold. if this is true, then i have a couple questions...


    is there anythingmy friendcan do that would get rid of the mold? i had them move the bag from the sock drawer to a sealed container, and then they put it in their desk drawer.


    is this pot still smokable?


    my friend cant get any pictures up at the moment..just know that its the same exact bud, only with a yellowish powdery substance that kind of resembles pollen in a way

    Fire-up a Joint. Experiment. If it's Mold, you will probably figure it out.


    Forty1 asks: Is this [possibly moldy] pot still smokable?


    One thing about Mold: It dies quickly when heated up to a Few-hundred degrees. Even if it's a little Moldy, it is still smokable. More than once, I have smoked REAL old pot (like 3 years old). And, one time I have smoked obviously Moldy pot (at Swim's house). Good news! It didn't taste quite as good, but it still Kicked ass. All of that THC is still there, just waiting for you to use it up.


    If you are worried at all, just make it into Canna-Butter, and bake up some Brownies (or soak it in Booze and make some Tincture). Since this is the Only time this has happened, just rack it up to experience. Should this re-occur, then maybe worry about what happened.
