Pleasantries aside, a report
. My pal got his product today. It is a modest quantity in a small baggie.
Color in paste form is barely off-white. Has a faint chemical smell. Consistency is drier & firmer than he expected, more like clay than paste. It is not very sticky. Unlike clay, the mass as a whole is easy to separate.
He has cut small quantities into tiny chunks on a drying dish and dried them slowly over low heat. Then he put the tiny now-dry chunks in a mortar & pestle and powderized them.
Once dry and powdered, the color is much whiter than when it was a paste. It is completely dry and has a uniform texture. The odor is very subtle. He can’t describe it.
It doesn’t clump but the layer on the mortar surface itself, the material that was ground onto the mortar by the pestle, adheres tightly. To scrape it off, my friend applies force to a razor’s edge. That material comes off flaky as if it was held together with a very dry faint wax. A water recovery would be better.
OK, so…ummm…once it’s powdered he does not know WTF to do with it. He's left it in the mortar.
We assume it's amphetamine
sulfate plus some sort of filler. He guesses that separating the amphetamine would be a good idea but he won’t blindly charge forward. First he needs to evaluate or be told in what properties the filler(s) differ from the speed.
He tried to smoke a little. In the pipe, it doesn’t behave like crystal meth
. My friend is not sure you even can
smoke dried amph. sulf.
It appears that the active ingredient fumes up faster than meth and rewards lower, slower heat even more than crystal.
It also looks like the active ingredient condenses onto the pipe glass easier than meth does. Perhaps this is more a function of melting point gradient between the filler in crystal and the filler in this paste.
He senses that there's an exploit there (its apparent property of condensing quickly) to separate the amphetamine, but he's not sure how to use it.
My friend would rather not snort it. Smoking it or taking it orally is all he will do.
