Default Reconditioning Desi Murli

I recall from the Gospel of Hajo that he was adamant that DM needed reconditioning. The first time I scored some DM, it was from TXH. I haven't noticed the stuff I got from Kamal being any different in moisture content. So, I assume that this is the way Desi Murli is intended to be.

Have any of you experimented with reconditioning, and if so do you feel it had a positive effect on the experience? I can not buy light molasses, or glycerine locally. Also, because I am in IN, I do not believe I can legally obtain glycerine due to our new Orwellian vaping laws. So, all I have is honey and water.

Thoughts?

I use honey and glycerine(about 1/8 tsp each per 30 grams or so DM) and you should be able to get vegetable glycerine at your local walgreens without issue. Its not so much to "recondition" as it is to promote "smoke". Otherwise , flavors fine but it produces very thin wispy smoke, imo.... of course ymmv.

I wish someone imported DM into the uk. You'd think someone would, what with most of the smokers here being actual desis

No Walgreens here. I will check CVS though. I was under the impression it needs to be food grade to smoke though? I'll see if anything there is USP. The Pudina and DA were wispy, which doesn't really bother me. However, the clove packed a serious throat hit; so i thought maybe moistening it a little would help. DM can get rather hot toward the end of the session as it dries out, imo.

Also, do you just stir and go? It seems like I recall seeing someone say to add a few drops of water and microwave...

No water necessary ( nor recomended!) and microwave, Pete? Wtf? Lol
Mmmm , nope. Never needed to do that. But go ahead in the name of science and let us know what you think.

Yup. You can get vegetable glycerine at any drug store and most supermarkets. They also carry it at Meijer or Wal Mart.

Desi Murli has plenty of water in it already- just mix a little glycerine and molasses or honey and work it into the tobacco.

I know. I'll go stand in the corner. In my defense, I have read extensive amts of old threads. Sometimes my wires get crossed. That's why I was checking. Cool, I'll head to the drug store.

I may be going that route. What? You don't want those phat DM KloudZ bro?

I checked CVS and their brand of glycerin did not state that it was USP. I did some quick online digging, and the vapers said not to do it for reasons of soapiness. I will check Walmart to see what they have. You would be surprised by the retail limitations of a town with six whole stoplights.

Ummmmm.... excuse me, but its Phat A$$ KloudZ.
Do you even DM brah!

In seriousness though I never reconditioned the DM I bought from H1 and I also thought the cloud output was suitable for not having any glycerin.

I'm all for a a nice session sans clothing. It makes the whole experience so much more.

Anyways, good luck with your search Pete.

Not the mental images I wanted for this session dudes. Nice choice of footwear for though, Carn. Total comfort.

Update, Walmart did not have glycerine. The last non supercenter Walmart left in all of creation didn't carry it, shocker. Will have to look out of town. I'm pretty sure it's these crazy vaping laws; I don't think the pure VG is publicly available in Indiana any longer.
