Gone are the days where you could go to a doctor and get a script to buy steroids from a pharmacy, due to steroids being abused by athletes and bodybuilders they are now illegal. The only way to buy steroids now is on the black market, either from a dealer or from an online source. When steroids were legal and were purchased from a pharmacy, the only steroids you could get were pharmaceutical grade which were extremely high quality and worked far better than the “underground” stuff. Today pharmaceutical steroids are harder to get hold of and cost a lot more, for this reason many people opt for black market steroids which usually are lower quality and can cause infections due to them being produced in an non-sterile environment. Only injectable steroids need to cause concern when purchased from an underground lab, oral steroids don’t need to be produced in a sterile environment.
This should almost go without saying yet for some reason many people cannot understand it. Human Grade (HG) anabolic steroids will always cost more than Underground (UG) anabolic steroids. It really shouldn’t come as a surprise, the cost of steroids made by a UG lab are the equivalent to the generic brand items you might buy at your local super market; this doesn’t mean they’re worthless. However, HG products, while the cost of steroids of a HG nature will be much higher they will always be of the highest quality and this we cannot say of UG steroids. The cost of steroids made by a UG lab while cheaper can often be of a poor quality nature, under-dosed, full of bacteria, not exactly what they’re supposed to be and even completely fake. This doesn’t mean good UG lines don’t exist, they do but they are very few and far between.
