Why Using Hemp Wicks Makes a Better Smoke

Why Using Hemp Wicks Makes a Better Smoke

Hemp wicks have been around for a long time. Hemp, of course, was one of the main crops of the founders of modern day America. Some say it's better to use a hemp wick, others prefer their bic (or blow torch) but here's what we know.

A hemp wick is essentially a length of hemp twine that's been coated with beeswax. It's basically a slow burning candlewick that can be used to light pipes and bongs (and many other things). 

Hemp wicks burn at a lower temperature meaning that hits are smoother and there's more potential to appreciate the turpenes. Whether you go old school, with just the wick and a match, or with something like Hemplights, you're going to get a better smoke. 

But why should we be using hemp wicks? The theory is that inhaling hot butane from a lighter is much worse for your body that a flame a top an all-natural, beeswax coated hemp twine (that was a real mouthful). 

So if it's healthier it's definitely for us!
