Citric acid information sheet

Brown or Afghan heroin is different from the ‘white’ heroin usually found in Australia.

Brown heroin is not very soluble. This means when you add water to it, it just goes clumpy and doesn’t dissolve. In order to be able to inject brown heroin you need to add citric acid to help it dissolve.
