Written by Redacción Mota Radio on 31 May, 2020
As you may know, in order to enjoy the full effects of the cannabinoids present in cannabis plants, it is necessary to apply heat, usually done with the help of a lighter, to light the plant material so you can use the pipe or smoke a joint.
But, what if you don’t have one at the time you want to light your marijuana? Well, you don’t have to worry, fortunately there are several alternatives that will surely be useful to fulfill your purpose. Here are some options for lighting your cannabis, so read on.
1) Hemp wick
The hemp wick is regularly used for small pipes or bongs. Many cannabis users prefer them because they do not produce odours like a lighter and are not as harmful as lighters, which release a small amount of butane, which the user ends up inhaling.
2) Use dry spaghetti
In many cases, when you don’t have a lighter, you can use items you do have in your pantry such as dry spaghetti. Yes, as you have read, you can use this element to light your cannabis, by pressing the end of a dry spaghetti against a hot stove to generate a little fire, as that end will burn and can be used as a match.
3) Glass rods
Another alternative to lighters are borosilicate rods, which are available at paraphernalia stores and are not as difficult to use.
