I've been searching around a lot here on bluelight for info or tips on getting the most out of hydromorphone, the particular big street brand here in my neck of the woods are the "hydromorph contins". Now, after usingtfse I've seen almost all threads in reference to hydromorph contins say something like "yeah hydro morph contins are impossible to abuse because they're covered in wax" or "they're really hard to abuse and shoot because they don't dissolve"---- BULLSHIT . I'm here to set the record straight... NO they are not impossible to abuse, though abusing them is illegal so I don't know why you'd want to but, they certainly are not impossible to abuse. The hydro morph contins are the most sought after opiate in my province, all the hardcore junkies prefer the hydro morph contins over dilaudid or generics because they are in fact the best HM pills to shoot, and for that matter, they prefer the hydro morph contins over shooting oxy, morphine, heroin, or any other opiate.
NOTE: As far as I know, hydromorph contins are only available in Canada, though I could be wrong but regardless, I'm sure these find their way into the american scene as well.
The only thing you need to do to shoot hydro morph contins, any MG, the ones I'm most familiar with are the orange 12's with the white beads inside; is the following:
What you'll need:
- Mortar & Pestle/Pill Crusher(Pill crushers are BOMB, i cant stress enough how useful these are, canadians go to your nearest lawtons or shoppers and buy a plastic one for $5, best 5 bucks you'll ever spend.
- Spoon, the thinner the metal in the dipped part of the spoon the better, easier it is to cook it faster
- 1cc insulin syringe, I prefer short tips to hit the veins in the arms
- Lighter (Optional)
- Cotton/end of a q-tip
What you do:
- Open the orange/whatever colour capsules, empty the white/whatever colour beads into your pill crusher/mortar.
- Crush repeatedly(I find the twist top pill crushers are best for this), crush until these beads seem broken into tiny little pieces.
-Empty the crushed beads into a spoon.
-Measure out 1 cc of distilled water(bottle water) into the spooon directly on top of the pile of crushed powder
- Mix the solution around a bit with the plunger end of your syringe
- Hold lighter flame about 1 or 2 cm from bottom of spoon, keep lit until water in spoon boils for no more than 3 seconds (Optional, the HM will dissolve without the application of heat, I personally always cook the shots up to kill bacteria but its not necessary)
DO NOT recook/ add more water/ whatever because the beads haven't dissolved, they aren't supposed to dissolve, you want the HM to dissolve not the WAX covering the beads, that's bad.. would you shoot a candle? I don't think so.
- Mix the solution around with the plunger of your syringe
- Throw a balled up piece of cotton into the spoon with the water and powder
- Draw up the water THROUGH The cotton(stick your syringe into the top of the cotton and pull the plunger back slowly) until you start to hear it hiss(meaning all the water has been drawn up and you're now drawing air into the syringe)
- Hold the syringe up vertically so the needle is facing UP towards the ceiling, flick the side of the syringe until all the air bubbles float to the top... then push the plunger on the syringe to push out all the access air.
- Wait for solution to cool(you don't want to inject hot water into your veins) and then inject the mixture slowly into your arm with the needle facing UP your arm towards your shoulder, then pull the needle out slowly as to not cut anything up inside your arm(bad news, happened to me before, Pulled out to fast and blood shot out of my arm onto my pants and hands).
- Lay back drooling and stare at the ceiling in awe
Conclusion- I find this method gives you a good 95%+ of the hydromorph into your system, I always cook the powder a second time and shoot as there can be 1 or 2 mg left in the spoon or absorbed into the cotton. So cook the beads a second time, shoot it, then if you really want to make sure you got it all, dry the crushed beads left in the spoon out and snort it or parachute it. That way you get all of it in you.
It's as simple as that, tried to make it detailed so you know exactly what to do, as that is exactly what I do and I tell you it works GREAT. Shooting the hydromorph contins is much better than shooting the pressed pills because the waxy beads do not dissolve in the water, only the hydromorphone dissolves, giving you a solution without little clumps of powder that's gonna end up in your arm.
I'll say this, I've shot a lot of pills in my day and the hydromorph contins are definitely one of my FAV, they seem to be a lot more potent than the dilaudid brand pills and caps... for what reason I do not know, but they are damn strong. They come in strengths ranging from I believe 3, 6, 12, 24 and 30 mg. I believe though the most common on the streets of canada are the 12's and 6's along with the dilaudid yellow 4's and the 8's.
So fellow Canadians, if you're an opiophanatic and you happen across the hm contins, refer to this guide and take solace in the fact you're swimming in gold .
Mod's if you would like, edit this to your liking and archive it pls. I'm sure a lot of Canadians visit this site and hm contins being one of the most popular street brands I think it's fair to say this guide can and will help a lot of people, as well I'm sure these pills have and will find a way into the american streets, as I'm not even sure if americans have hydromorphones that come in strengths of 24 and 30mg.
Tips for the novice-Just a little bit of additional info here, for those with lack of a tolerance, 6 mg will be more than enough, I'd play it on the safe side though, If you get a pink hydromorph contin 6mg, Cook half the beads and IV, then try the second half if you're not a smiling lump on the floor covered in drool yet. Natural opiate tolerance varies a lot from person to person. So always play it safe and start with around 3 or 4mg if you're new to IVing.
There isn't enough info on here for canadian brand name pharms and the like, so perhaps I will write more guides in the future.
Peace and love,
