Why You Should Always Test Your Drugs

4 min

Testing your drugs before using them can protect both your life and your wallet. Effectively testing your drugs can help you to determine their purity, and the trustworthiness of their source. Zamnesia's EZ test kits can help you to quickly and easily determine the safety and quality of your drugs without having to use a laboratory.

We have all been there. The festival you have been looking forward to for days, weeks or even months, is finally here! You are well prepared and bought some (at least you hope) good stuff. But, now your wondering if your drugs are truly that good...

Testing your drugs before consuming them is always a good idea. Neglecting this can expose you to serious health risks. Additives and fillers are routinely added to street drugs in order to lower the costs of production. While many of these fillers can be harmless, others may pose severe health risks. Moreover, it can keep you wasting your hard-earned money on ineffective drugs from untrustworthy sources.

Testing drugs can be quicker and easier than most people think. EZ test kits allow you to check the consistency or purity of your drugs within minutes. Each kit is portable, and does not require any extra equipment to operate. These tests are so easy to use that you really have no excuse not to try them!

THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU DON’T TEST THE QUALITY OF YOUR DRUGS

Test The Quality Of Your Drugs

A few years ago the Vice crew tested drugs at a popular UK music festival, finding almost all samples to contain some kind of impurity. They tested, for example, pills of a party-goer that costed £20 each that were sold to him as MDMA. After consuming them, he found out that they had no effect.

They concluded that it was almost definitely half an orange-flavoured Rennie, a heartburn pill that's never made anyone hug a complete stranger before telling them, in excruciating, emotional detail, about their parents' divorce.

Other test results were much more worrying. The dextromethorphan (DMX) found in one capsule has been known to cause heat stroke, a well-documented problem among rave-goers on ecstasy. Another sample contained traces of para-Methoxyamphetamine (PMA), a chemical that was responsible for the deaths of three British party-goers in early 2015. Meanwhile, other tests simply showed up as containing no MDMA whatsoever, leaving some to wonder what exactly they had been taking.

Cocaine cuts and cocaine purity EZ test kits were used to sample cocaine at the festival. The samples were found to be of “medium purity”, containing roughly 40% pure cocaine. Tests determined that the primary cutting agents used in these samples were benzocaine (dental numbing agent) and levamisole (livestock de-worming medication). In humans, levamisole can induce effects somewhat similar to cocaine. However, it has also been known to suppress white blood cells and contribute to skin rot. In 2014, a UK minister claimed that up to 80% of cocaine entering Britain was cut with the agent.

HOW TO TEST THE QUALITY OF YOUR DRUGS

You can quickly and conveniently test your drugs by using EZ tests. These tests can determine the safety and purity of your drugs within minutes, if not seconds. Moreover, they are also portable and easy to carry around, so they can be used on the go.

Here are some of the EZ tests that we carry at Zamnesia.

EZ TEST ECSTASY

Buying ecstasy has always been a risky proposition. Because of ecstasy’s well-earned reputation for being cut with all sorts of additives and fillers, it is a good idea to test your stash before consumption. This can help you to avoid potentially serious adverse side effects like nausea, panic attacks, or even death.

Just open one of the included test containers and place your product inside, shaking gently. Give it a few minutes, then consult the information chart provided with the test kit to determine the result.

EZ TEST KETAMINE

This test kit can be used to accurately test for the presence of ketamine in substances. It can also detect the existence of other compounds such as ecstasy (MDMA), methamphetamine, methylphenidate (Ritalin), PMA/PMMA, and 2-AI. Just as with our other EZ kits, only very little powder is required for testing. Just place some in the test vial, shake, and wait.

EZ TEST LSD AND INDOLES

This kit can help you to determine whether your drugs contain LSD or other indoles. This LSD EZ kit can test your sample for the presence of compounds like DMT, psilocybin, psilocin, 5-MeO-DMT, 5-MeO-MiPT, and others.

EZ TEST MDMA PURITY

This MDMA purity test kit is designed to take the guesswork out of buying MDMA. Whereas some pills may contain nothing but pure MDMA, others may be cut with a number of common additives. MDMA has recently gained a well-earned reputation for being cut with cheaper amphetamines such as methamphetamine. Using this kit, you will be able to tell just how clean your MDMA really is.

The test has been designed to quickly determine the purity of MDMA in just minutes. In order to test your drugs, place exactly 20mg of finely ground product in the vial, shake, and let sit. Within 5 to 15 minutes, you should be able to see results. However, for best results, it is recommended that you allow 30 to 45 minutes.

EZ TEST THC

This kit contains an easy one-step test for determining if a sample contains THC. As the main psychoactive ingredient in marijuana, tetrahydrocannabinol is required in order to experience mind-altering effects. Within seconds, this kit can figure out if your product will actually get you high or not.

The kit functions with both plant matter (buds) and hashish. After placing the sample in the tube, you should observe a dark red colour change if THC is present.

EZ TEST COCAINE: THREE KITS

Cocaine has developed a notorious reputation for being laced with additives. The more hands it passes through, the more likely it is to have been modified. Moreover, the further away you are from the point of origin, the more likely that your cocaine has been cut. Testing your cocaine beforehand can tell you a lot about its past. Luckily, Zamnesia has three EZ tests that do exactly that.

These test strips do not react with cocaine itself. Instead, they react with common additives and fillers such as ephedrine, phenacetin, and levamisole. Simply place some cocaine inside one of the test vials, shake, and consult the information sheet. When testing cocaine, colour changes indicating results should be visible within seconds.

This cocaine purity test is designed to test the purity level of your cocaine within a matter of seconds. It may not be able to tell you exactly what your stash is cut with, but it can give you a pretty good idea of how much of it is in there.

Similar to its main ingredient, crack cocaine has developed a reputation for being cut and laced with cheaper additives. This test kit will not be able to tell you exactly what you are consuming. However, it can tell you if it contains cocaine, crack cocaine, MiPT, MDPV, or 5-MeO. The test can be used similarly to the cocaine EZ test, and results should be available within seconds.

HOW DO THESE TESTS WORK?

EZ tests function by causing chemical reactions inside of their vials or tubes. A specific chemical reagent (depending on the kit) is absorbed in silica gel and placed inside the test container. If a particular substance is detected, a chemical reaction happens inside the vial, resulting in a colour change. Some kits may require you to wait a number of minutes for a colour change to fully happen. Once a colour change reaction occurs, consult the included colour chart to determine the result.

HOW DO THESE TESTS WORK?

Please remember that all test kits are sold without warranty. For a full and thorough examination, please send your sample to an official laboratory.
