What is a bundle of heroin?

Answer

A bundle of heroin is made up of 10 bags of heroin. Each heroin bundle contains one gram of the drug, so each bag typically has one-tenth of a gram. Five bundles constitute a brick of heroin.

Heroin addicts may start by using one bag a week, but addiction can quickly progress to using one bag per day or even two or three bags per day. Long-term heroin addicts can use a bundle per day. In extreme cases, some heroin addicts use multiple bundles each day. Addiction and tolerance depend not only on the addict's choices, but also the unique composition of ingredients found in a single gram of heroin.

Heroin is not regulated by any government or organization. Therefore, it's impossible to know the exact contents of the white powder in any given bundle. Some bundles of heroin are nearly 100 percent heroin, while other bundles are only 20 percent pure. Once dealers receive heroin shipments, they are free to cut, or mix the drug with any other substance they choose, regardless of whether it's safe. Heroin is often mixed with baking soda, which lowers the cost and dilutes the product. However, heroin is occasionally cut with fentanyl, a powerful painkiller. Fentanyl-laced heroin has been responsible for hundreds of heroin-related deaths, even among addicts who had a high tolerance to heroin.
