What is hemp wick?
Hemp wick was created after the realization of the harmful effects that a lighter emits. The C4H10 (the building blocks behind butane) is extremely harmful to humans. For this reason alternatives were researched, and thus hemp wick was born.
Hemp wick is a mix between hemp string and beeswax or other kinds of flammable wax - mostly beeswax though.
What is it used for?
Hemp wick can be used to light just about anything - mainly used to light hookahs, tobacco pipes, camping grills, bongs, cigars and pilot lights. When using it for smoking purposes a lot of users say it preserves the flavours - especially in bongs and cigars - it also reduces the harshness and enhances the flavors as mentioned earlier - it is a main point so I had to repeat it sorry.
