PRODUCT REVIEW: Raw Unbleached Hemp Wick

August 31, 2017


The long-term health risks of consuming too much residual butane when smoking cannabis using a traditional lighter are no secret. We also know that fossil fuels are terrible for mother earth. Last but not least, some joints need to be re-lit a few times. For the health-aware environmentally conscious ganja smoker, using a hemp wick is a solid alternative




4.0 out of 5.0 stars




We’ve all been there. You pack a mega-bowl in your new bong and in order to light it up - you've gotta hold down the button on your lighter until the metal is nearly molten. The alternative to that hemp wick. Made of hemp twine dipped in bee wax, which sticks to itself but not to your fingers, burns at a significantly lower temperature than the flame of a lighter. You can also control how big or small the flame is, allowing for greater flexibility. This results in the cannabis being better preserved when lit along with giving you a less harsh taste of the flower itself. 




Better option than butane? The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in the organization’s Pocket Guide to Hazardous Chemicals, defines butane as a “colorless gas with a gasoline-like or natural gas odor” and states that the side effects of being exposed to this can cause suffocation, narcosis, and drowsiness.

This idea of a "clean smoke" is what makes hemp wick stand out as an alternative of lighting your cannabis. Should you want to have an even more environmentally light, solar lighting, where you light your joint with a magnify glass in the sun, would be another more time consuming option.  




Price varies as the Raw Hemp Wick is offered in different lengths. They are currently available on Rawthentic and Amazon




Lighters, candles, matches
