Purechemicals stupid or just lazy?

I have used Purechemicals (I refuse to put any backlinks to their site on here and will be removing any existing ones) on many occasions and always found them to be very reliable and professional, hence why I would keep going back. I was very happy until recently when I had made an order of around £70 on 31st of July. I chased them on the 3rd August to see where the order was as all orders are sent special delivery which 90% of the time turn up the following day.

I spoke to a bloke who initially informed me that there was a backlog with Royal mail in my particular area??? His colleague then took the phone and informed me that he had in fact forgot to post it out and would do it today (why did this other idiot try and blame royal mail??). I explained that I am not happy about this because I am a freelancer, I am at various addresses throughout the week so if I need something sent to a specific delivery address within the timescales of the postage method I have chosen, if it fails I am fucked basically.

They gave me a lot of errrming as if to say what the fuck do you want us to do (you job perhaps) and then agreed to send it special delivery to a specific work address so I would have it the following day. I explicitly went through the shipping address and had them reiterate it back to me, they still managed to send it to the wrong address however.

I put this down to perhaps a bad day or too much indulging in their own products but I placed another order of around £60 on 1st September and received an email confirmation to say it had been shipped (it hadn’t). I chased this again the following working day to be told yet again that they had forgot to send the item out. I asked why the fuck they had sent me a tracking number for an item that cannot be tracked, apparently just so I have it (makes perfect sense doesn’t it?). I had initially asked the order to be sent to a work address, obviously didn’t show up because the idiots forgot to post it, so now I have had to have it sent to my home address where no one is there to sign for it purely because when I request a different delivery address to billing address, their tiny little minds can’t quite grasp it.

Usually these guys are quite good but I would not recommend them to anyone, their customer service is not great, to forget to send out orders and not even offer an apology or communication to say the previous email was a lie is disgusting. The very fact that they cannot undertake a simple task like sending an item to an address, quoted back by both parties verbally. I do not know the gentlemen in question, I am sure they are very nice people but I no longer trust them with my money and someone else can have it.

Research chemicals still available to buy on high street

On my way through town earlier I noticed one of the news stories was something like lethal legal highs back on sale in York,  upon returning home I checked their website (I’m not buying it!) and came across this.

Apparently a specific shop in York is still selling incense blends if you ask over the counter. I do not want to name said shop as I think the people who work their are lovely and if you live locally you will know who I mean anyway. However, I feel this was a silly decision on the shop’s part. After being told by police not to sell these products anymore (I am not entirely sure about this, just what I have heard). They then revamped the shop away from a head shop to prepare for this stupid up coming ban and stated that they would no longer be selling any research chemicals. I had walked past the other day and noticed some empty packs of green crack and cotton candy, 2 of the blends available at said shop prior to change over which made me question if they were still selling them.

I think with the media’s attitude towards research chemicals this was an un-wise decision as I would be paranoid that a member of the press of similar local news would do what they have done and catch them out, potentially causing issues with trading standards (I hope not).

To quote the presses article:

James Hall, who runs the York Against Legal Highs Facebook page, said: “It is well known that legal highs are extremely dangerous and the dishonesty demonstrated by this shop shows they cannot be believed when they say that the products are not intended for human consumption.

“They cannot be believed when they say they check ID to ensure the customer is over 18 and they cannot be believed about anything else in the future.

“It is time for the authorities, Trading Standards and the police to take robust action, right now, before more people end up in hospital or worse.”

This could potentially cause issues for the store, I hope that one sneaky, local journalist (living the dream bud) doesn’t cause them any issues with regulators or even start some kind of vigilante group.

So whilst I am pleased I can pick up some incense in town, I am a bit disappointed in how they have handled this as it is a chain not just one store, I personally wouldn’t want to get on the wrong side if the law or my regulators this early into business.

I hope that those knob head mother groups doesn’t pick up on this one because as I said, the staff there are good and don’t deserve to be out of a job over poor management decisions (again this is just a guess).

I would always recommend this shop to other people looking for related products as The staff were always very helpful and would go out of their way to offer the best service and recommend the most suitable products rather than trying to get people to buy the more expensive items.

f-7_acwc_smoke_shop

I will be intrigued to see if any further action can or will be taken from this, I hope not as the law hasn’t yet passed so they are still within the law to sell these items, and the way the press have gone about this is just sneaky, but retailers of this nature need to look out for such things.

The idea to ban all psychoactive substances is patronizing, we should all be allowed to ingest any substances we wish, I don’t need David Cameron to tell me drugs are bad m’kay. This will only create a black market for these substances, when mephedrone was made Class A various street dealers started selling it. A nasty enough drug in its pure form, let alone cut to shit.

I think the government need to look at USA and start relaxing drug laws, not tightening them, this does no good to anyone. The war on drugs is clearly a losing battle, I don’t understand why they would waste time and resources on that failing war, which the government will never, ever win. Where ever there is demand, someone will have the resource to fill those demands, including illicit substances.

Attempt number 2 at making C-liquid (not doing well)

so the first attempt whilst not overly successful in the sense that the liquid was not clear however, the C-liquid still got me high so can’t really complain.

I have an obsession with artificial grape flavour, I had been struggling to find any 0mg liquid in town, until I went to see the lovely people in Redeye (or if they are changing their name, whatever) who had it in abundance. I picked up 40ml and ordered 2 grams of BB-22 just as I had never tried it and I was curious.

I read that it is not really effective to place more than 20mg per ml of liquid, having no scales (again I strongly recommend against eyeballing potent chemicals). I put roughly 800mg of the cannabanoid in the 40ml if e liquid.

plate

I placed it in a breaker, resting it on something as to not burn it. After quite some time it became apparent that the BB-22 was not going to dissolve properly so as per the guide in the pervious C liquid post, I placed the beaker in the microwave until it started bubbling which gave me a clear solution.

unnamed (3)liquid

I left the mixture to cool, I can only assume I either put too much BB-22 in the solution or I didn’t apply enough heat, although I was concerned about damaging the cannabanoids.

Next time (I have roughly 60ml so will be a while. I while choose a cannabanoid which has a fear ratio on that guide and try to apply more heat without spoiling the solution.

If anyone has any suggestions as to what I am doing wrong or help in anyway, please either email me or leave a comment.

I have recently upgraded from a standard tidy battery, at I believe 3.2, I got myself a variable voltage which goes up to 4.8; the C-twist tornado from Totally wicked, I have noticed a definitive difference in strength and would recommend anyone who is getting to vaping to invest in some more solid equipment as you will notice the benefit.

My attempt at making C-Liquid

After paying obnoxious prices for C-Liquids (no offence to any vendors, if you can you may as well), I though I would attempt my own. I found a guide online here which seemed pretty straight forward.

unnamed

i did the math for the 5f-AKB-48 and has to guestimate the dosage for the THJ-018 as Google wasn’t being my friend. I would never recommend guessing dosage for research chemicals but I am stupid, experienced and have the tolerance of an ox. I placed 500mg of each chemical in 40ml of 0mg (nicotine) e liquid.

I mixed the two in a small container which was able to withstand heat and placed the container in a tray if hot water which was being gently heated on the stove.

unnamed (2)

I heated the mixture for some time but the cannabanoids wouldn’t dissolve so I tried the microwave method. I placed the container in the microwave fir small amounts of time(seconds) stirred it and let it cool slightly. I kept repeating the process until the powder had dissolved, I left the mixtures out to cool. Initially as you can see the mixture was clear but for some reason became cloudy when moved to another, clean jar.

unnamed (3)

I believe it is risidual THJ-018 as it was in brown like crystal form. So I separated my 2 liquids and labelled them to avoid confusion.

unnamed (4)

I filled the tank using a cooking syringe I found in a store that sells everything and waited patiently for my crappy ion battery to charge (need to buy a lithium, variable voltage on payday).

So one my battery was ready to go, with a brand new coil in my e cigarette, I started vaping the strawberry 5f-AKB48. To start with, I’m not sure if it was because my e cig hadn’t been used in a few days or if it was the consistently on the liquid (which appeared to be the same as standard liquid, just cloudy) but I struggled to get a good hit as if my e cig was blocked or it was struggling to heat up the liquid. After a few times of letting the could heat up it worked a treat? Admittedly it looks odd and it is difficult to package and get into your tank but the strength is better than any C-Liquid I have ever tried on the market, possibly due to the large ratio I used, and there is no adverse taste from the process so it tastes lovely. Because of the amount of money this saved me, I hope to master the process over time by keeping creating my own C-Liquids.

I haven’t yet tried the THJ-018 liquid, but when I do I will report back. Just to make you aware the process was exactly the same, just a different cannabanoid.

Sweet Leaf C-Liquid review

As you can tell by previous posts I am a fan of C-Liquids, I can get high on the go and in public without anyone suspecting, and some of them are pretty good.

I have so far tried the herbal oils vanilla and blueberry (bubblegum flavour really doesn’t appeal to me). I think this was my favourite of all the C-Liquids as it tasted really good and was quite strong. The only downside is the price, at roughly £2o for 4ml that is insane, I can’t afford that.

a1b-2

You will also see my review of on the Buddah Blues liquids, the most expensive, again at £20 for 4ml is lovely but again is too expensive to consider, the cheaper alternatives task horrid.

IMG_0057

I noticed that purechemicals were selling C-Liquid at £20 for 10ml which I though was more reasonable. I initially bought their own brand, gummi bear flavour, whilst it wasn’t unpleasant it was overly sweet, I don’t know if it was my e-cig (never had an issue before or since) but I struggled to get a good hit off it.

5f-akb48-cannabinoid-liquid-10ml-1089-p

I then tried the sweet leaf C-liquid on their site, which is the same price and I am currently using, I have even bought another bottle because I enjoyed it so much.
It has a reasonably good strength, not overpowering but gives a nice subtle high that is definitely noticable, and tastes almost like tropic fruits. I would recommend this C-Liquid to anyone who uses it. Due to it’s good strength, taste and excellent price. I will be sticking to this product for now.

Anyone else use C-Liquid? What is your brand of choice, or what are your thoughts? Let me know.

insane suggestion to blanket ban pretty much everything

All high street head shops have been “asboed” as they put it from selling any forms of research chemicals or legal highs however, they are still available in abundance online.

The law that the government wants to pass defines psychoactive substances as:

(a) is capable of producing a psychoactive effect in a person who consumes it, and
(b) is not an exempted substance.

It is the definition of “psychoactive” which, rightly, has attracted the most

This far too vague a wording, obviously though nicotine, tobacco and caffeine are exempt or there would be further outrage.

It seems that there are non psychoactive substances which would fall under this law such as; hops filled pillows, the scent of flowers or air fresher as well as certain vaping liquids which contain certain additives.

In my opinion no good can come of this, the government have made themselves look like a bunch of tits yet again, the wording og that bill is so poor that it needs to be looked at and complete overhauled. Not only this but by making all drugs illegal they are creating a larger and more dangerous black market which costs tax payers a fortune for them to keep fighting the unwinnable drugs war.

I will be very disappointed if this law passes, what are your thoughts on this?

sweet leaf obliteration herbal incense review

The name says it all really; obliteration. This stuff is either stupidly strong or my tolerance has gone down, which is unlikely. This blend caught me off guard with it’s strength so be careful is my advice. Here is a picture of the back of the packet:

IMG_0338 (2)

This blend is particularly in-offensive in terns of aroma as some are pretty nasty which is a benefit and reasonably priced at at £14 for 3g from purechemicals.net.

This blend completely wiped me out initially, I fell asleep some after using it after being in a state of retardedness which i quite enjoyed. It is not very long lasting so you are able to function again within 40 minutes or so after using.

I would recommend this blend to people experienced with herbal incense but certainly not beginners as I can see this one potentially leading to panic attacks and whiteys.

Overall I would give this blend a 9/10, very pleased with it as a seasoned user of such herbal incense blends.

Buddha Blues C-liquid review

I received my package promptly in a box, it only gives the option of recorded mail so no chances of it being lost or either side trying to pull a fast one to quote a less pleasant vendor.

Usually I get my C-liquid from my local headshop p, but due to recent changes the law are managing to enforce, it is no longer selling such products so I thought I would start looking for the best online vendor for my C-liquid usage.

I ordered the “Buddah Blues Eliquid souvenir” as it was only £12.50 for 4ml. My first thought upon placing the Eliquid in my “oil burner” was that it has a scent very similar to standard, cheap mouthwash however the effects were quite pleasant and very similar to the more expensive version I had been using.

  
The only downside I found with this particular Eliquid is the taste, even other people who tried it were horrified, but considering the price I would overlook this, while it isn’t nice, it is more than tolerable.

So I have made another purchase from this site, one of each of the 4ml Eliquids, (mouthwash, watermelon and blueberry) for £40 which I think is quite reasonable as I was unable to get this amount of C-liquid for that price at other online stores I had checked out and I already know the lowest quality one is not really low quality in terms of effects.

You can check out the website at:  http://www.legalhigheliquid.co.uk I would recommend anyone who smokes synthetic cannabanoids to switch to vaping over smoking blends as I have felt great improvements in terms of coughing and my cardio fitness levels. There are a few ready made Eliquids on the market already however it wouldn’t be difficult to make your own and would probably work out cheaper. 

I intend in the future to just make it myself using the powdered chemicals which are quite cheap and the propylene glycol and glycerin should hopefully, bind the 2 as a solvent, however I need to do a lot more research on this before I start, hence this purchase to keep me going in the mean time.

All I can say is thank god there is no 0 tolerance policy in my work place!

Update: 02/06/2015

So I received my 3 Buddah Blues e liquids, watermelon, blueberry and whatever the mouth wash flavour one is meant to be.

I first tried the watermelon, my initial thought was that’s some funky melon, are they sure they know what a watermelon is? Although I think I might be being a bit unfair with that. It does have a watermelon-ish taste but also has a hint of whatever makes the standard one slightly unpleasant. While again, it did what it was intended to do and I am happy with it in one respect, it has such a strange and unpleasant odour that I just don’t think, for me it is the best product out there. They are reasonably cheap but with other vendors now coming out with liquids around the same price with a more pleasant aromas I don’t think I will choose this one again.

I haven’t tried the blueberry one yet, I’m nervy after the watermelon! I should be receiving some 5F-AKB48 C-liquid from purechemicals.net tomorrow at my desk, 10ml and gummi bear flavour (we shall see about that) for only £20. I will post a review once I have tried it. Failing that I will probably go back to the herbal oils blueberry or vanilla c-liquid as that tastes very pleasant and is fairly strong.

I will update this again when I have braved the blueberry

Update 06/06/2015

I have now tried the blueberry liquid and it is almost like it is made by other company. First of all the taste is really nice, no hint of mouthwash with this one. Also this particular liquid seems stronger than the others, strong to the point that I fell over in the middle of town earlier after vaping some.

I am very pleased with this c-liquid however, at £20 for ml it seems a bit over priced considering there are cheaper, quality alternatives available.

C-liquid and thank Christ for it

So my local head shop have been selling c-liquid for some time but it never crossed my mind to try it, until the other day. I am slightly concerned about smoking research chemicals and strange plant matter, but if I get sick I have no one to blame but myself.
So with some small regard for my health a bought an e cig and 5ml of vanilla c-liquid.
Initially it took some getting used to, as with vaping cannabis I find I get a strong head high and no body load.
I’ve been using it for a few days now and I will continue to take my synthetic cannabanoids in this fashion as it feels much better on my lungs.
C-liquid is nothing new, there are brands such as buddah blues, buy any chemical’s version, K2 and mellow mood to name a few. I bought this one which doesn’t seem to be branded.
The beauty of the C-liquid is if you’re lucky enough to work for a company which doesn’t have a zero tolerance policy in place, you can slyly get away with it during those stressful moments (only if it doesn’t affect your work) or when you’re out and about.
It is only a matter of time before this one gets caught up in a ban so let us enjoy it responsibly while we still can.

The law trying to limit sales of research chemicals

police

Well as of the 9th of April the home office decided to ban sales of ethylphenidate, EP pellets, 3,4,CTMP and IPPD. Possession of these substances is not an offence but vendors have had their stock seized and apparently burnt by the police (what I was told by one head shop).
Apparently last Tuesday the police visited the head shops in Leeds in order to ASBO if you will them from selling research chemicals.

popo

Whilst cannabanoids and benzos as well as all other RCs appear to be safe from this particular ban for now however I have also been told by one head shop they are to deplete their stock, meaning we may no longer be able to purchase legal drugs from our local head shops anymore, putting small shops out of business.
It appears that the home office have placed a 6 month ban on these chemicals whilst they gather enough evidence to outlaw them, as with previous designer drugs. But if the UK government with their insane new policies decide a blanket ban is to be put into place, the black market of the drugs trade will increase.
Since a shop opened in our local area there have been many incidents of people buying research chemicals without doing the research and ending up in A&E which has brought a lot of attention to research chemicals locally. I once called 111 as my housemate was seriously ill and there was a recorded message asking if any research chemicals had been ingested as obviously people were causing themselves harm.
Research chemicals need to stay off the government/NHS/media radar before a blanket ban is out into place. People need to use these chemicals responsibly and test small amounts for bad reactions before taking a recreational dose.
Currently my local head shop is still selling a reasonable range of research chemicals unlike Leeds however, the police could easily drop by tomorrow and ban their sales of chems.
