    any body had nug wen smoked/burned had small sparkling effects like the firework sparklers. crackling like tiny poppings its so messed up looking like its tiny explosions. its almost like gunpowder or the stuff in wicks for cherry bombs or somehting. the nug is laced with what like flammable tiny explosive ****?! this nug. all this might sound crazy but maybe i cant entirely explain wat is happening wen i pack bowls it like combusts in the bowl sparkling away moving around and ****. please any1 got any ideas lol

    Yeah, I've had bud that's crackled and sparked like that before. I don't know what it is though. I didn't notice any adverse effects or anything.

    i may be wrong but but i smoke regs like weed with seeds and whenever i smoke a bowl of a fat nug that has like 4 seeds in it or sotmhing they will "blowup" i beleive it is becuase of the air inside and it combusts. kind of like popcorn haha

    correct me if im wrong.....

    seeds always pop
    explode watever
    ....why are u smoking seeds?!?!?
    thats dirty very dirty
    u smoke stems 2? lol
    my nug is seed free
    so thers no seeds exploding here
    just pure crackles and sparks its sooooo messed up
    its like magic burning. the cherry itself crackles. almost like the buds were spontaneously combusting like on southpark
    this has got 2 be the most screwed up stuff ive seen lately

    You'll get a pop from seeds, but I'm willing to bet your problem is you are holding the lighter too close to the bowl when sparking it, dusting it with residue from the flint/steel. this then burns and causes the sparkle.

    that, or you got some really F-d up stuff.


    PS- dont believe me?, take a clean sheet of white paper, hold your lighter over it, and spin the wheel a few times (don't let it actually spark or light, you just want the black residue.) take that unburned debris and roll a slightly moistened joint in it. now you have a joint that will sparkle as you smoke it.

    I've heard that if certain fertilizer/chemical is used at certain phase of growth sparkling or crackling is not uncommon.

    But don't quote me.

    I use chemical ferts and have never had that happen. I would be more apt to say the weed is probably not being dried all the way before curing, causing the resin glands to stay wet & pop...just like wet wood pops when you burn it.:D

    well the nug is bone dry
    i would have 2 film the bowl while being toked
    for any1 2 understand the seriousness lol
    i mean its not normal noises of plant material burning, combusting, expanding or watever ignites wen burned.
    its intense snap crackle pop ing
    pretty loud and tons of crackles a second

    It's an interesting sight...

    I think I got some of the same nugs you got purpledrank... it is just like a sparkler, there isn't really anyway else to describe it. Like nothing i've ever seen before. Anybody else have any ideas!?!

    there's a possibility that it is laced with crack. hence the name. only thing i can think of.

    Not laced, not seeds, not fertilizer. I know this because the same bud I lit at one time didn't crack and then the next time it did, like a joint that you save and re-light. I have had this happen before, when the bud dries out or becomes resinous. My speculation is that small pockets of water are boiling very rapidly, and break apart little parts of the weed and/or THC.

    Water pockets

    I'm pretty sure the buds have trapped microscopic water pockets in them. When u burn it, the ash is a very damp sticky ash. You have to burn it longer then it will eventually turn to ash gray and it only seems to sparkle when it is first burnt, hence the pockets popping.

    Im not an expert or anything but this has happened to me many a time. Ususally it happens when the nugs are really dried out or left out after a party or something. Personally i think that it is kinda like pine needles. they crack and pop when burnt, so i just figured pot had the same properties when dried out too.

    YES, its fertilizer

    It is definately fertilizer, and not dry weed.

    When weed sparkles when burned that it is due to fertilizers used in the last stage of growth when it should receive nothing but water.

    This will leave chemicals in the weed that cause it to sparkle when burned, and I've also noticed that it gives me a heavy sharp headache after I smoke copious amounts of it. I can't stand this sparkly shit.

    Welcome to,

    I have also smoked marijuana that was not flushed before the harvest; once. I will never do it again. I know what it feels like, and a heavy sharp headache is about half of it.

    I still get sparkling/crackling bud, which I am sure does not have fertilizers in it. Read my previous post.

    Hmm, I got a oz of hydros that have this effect. Do you know of any way of cleaning the bud so that it is smokeable? I think the fucking vision of my right eye is starting to go blurry because of this shit!!

    Also, does anyone know if there are any permanent bad effects from smoking weed that hasn't been flushed? I can deal with the temporary headache if it isn't damaging my brain and nerves.
