Sparkly weed?

    So, I've bought two separate bags from different people (could be the same strain) and something very weird is happening... The weed sparks! Even after I'm done roasting it, small sparks still come out of the bowl. I've been smoking for a few years, and the high and taste definitely don't seem laced. Could it just be moist? One of the bag's name was supposedly 'Lemon Drop', could that mean it was sprayed with some sort of juice?

    Thanks!

    I don't think the weed had anything to do with it, I think your bowl just wasn't put out.

    I think that some of the flint from your lighter dropped into it, that would do it

    Within the last two months I've seen weed that was laced, it was very subtle but that would describe it when it burns, it looked like iron filings or magnesium burning slowly in the way that it burned. I found out later that it had been sprayed lightly with some sort of sugar solution, needless to say the suppliers phone number was deleted.

    It's definitely not this but it was my first thought: the dust that comes off sparklers

    haha im stupid, the only real thing i could thing is that the bud isn't completely dry because when you hold a flame to a living plant at first it makes the flame curve around it a bit and the flame will act weird and spark so thats my explanation

    Weed that sparks is usually weed from which the chemical fertilizers have not been leached before it's harvested. Growers who know what they're doing stop fertilizing a week before harvest and flush the plants with pure water to remove internal fertilizer residue, which can give the smoke a harsh "chemical" taste.

    this is correct and likely the root of your problem.
