heh heh the contamination scan goes like this:
I get a sample of buddy’s weed a bud after it’s dry then I get out my microscope and I start cutting off small bits of plant and putting it under the scope. Then, I start looking for contamination. I look for fibers, eggs, exoskeletons, growing medium, and anything else abnormal. Fungus…etc. Whatever you can see at up to 1600x magnification which is pretty much anything, but…you don’t need to go that hardcore, usually 400x can resolve anything. I don’t care about things like cotton fibers or some human skin cells, but you have to spend time getting to know what an uncontaminated plant looks like and what kind of contamination you are looking at. Figuring out what things were took a few years initially, but now I can pick out strange objects and even know what they are compared to other known objects right? lol! Ok so my control group for clean weed is my own supply, so I know what it SHOULD look like. The creepiest shit I ever saw was phase contrast hash oil with spider mite eggs in it. GROSS!!! Or trichomes with mildew spores on them NASTY!
“Man this is good weed!”
“funny…it’s riddled with mite carcasses”
“Oh it’s the mite carcasses that are gettin’ me so HIGH!!!”
you might wonder how I can see like that buddy put some pesticide insecticide etc on there… well I got the phase contrast and a pair of eyes I got that microscope setup specifically for cannabis analysis. For my own crops. Then…I turned it like a laser on my friends crops…and I’m sure they hated it except when they call me up for a scan. I did lots of scans for non profit they are always amazed at the things I can find. What I discovered is that only human eyes can see what a machine can’t. Oh I’m sure the worst was all that hash I scanned - every single one was contaminated! Oh for that I dissolve the hash in alcohol and see what the fuck is left behind! You don’t want me finding synthetic fibers in there or bits of dirt.
