No sand is digestable period. The thing that makes playsand more appetizing is that is has smaller particle size, at least to me. My vet says he has seen many dragons impacted with calcisand. You want to be really safe, feed you dragons outside their enclosures then they won't get hurt. I used to use calci sand for subadults/adults but after confering with my vet I decided that the extra high price of calci sand and the higher risk of impaction (from a specialist reptile vet with many years of experience) versus playsand made me chose play sand. For my big guys I have since switched over to completely a mixture of soil and sand which is more natural and keeps the "beardie" smell way down. My 2 cents to each their own, and for the most part all of us aren't doing the safest thing for our dragon.
