    Well last night I was going to break in my new sack I picked up but I had no lighter! So after looking around my room for an hour for a lighter with no results. I decided to light a candle on my stove and just use that. The weed tasted a lot better than normal, and my cottonmouth was much less intense and I had a buttery taste in my mouth afterwards instead of a chemical bhutane taste.

    Dude, you smoked wax. Reminds me of when I was 5 and we were camping. So I roasted my marshmellows over top of the candel that was suposed to keep the bugs away. Gave the marshmellow a nice lemon taste... probolly wasn't healthy.

    I ate one of those citronella tealight candles once... It was a dare.

    This is when I DIDNT smoke weed.

    And yeah, the flame has evaporated wax in it. Not good for the lungs.

    Why is it smoking wax if I use a candle but I'm not smoking butane if I use a bic lighter?

    Here's the chemical equation for butane combustion.

    2 C4H10 + 13 O2 [​IMG] 10 H2O + 8 CO2

    As you can see, butane combusts very cleanly, producing only water and carbon dioxide.

    On the other hand, when a candle is lit, the heat melts the wax and eventually causes it to evaporate. I doubt it's harmful, but it's not beneficial either.

    People say lighting a cigar with a match is better than a lighter. Don't some of the chemicals get released and not burned, then you inhale chemicals?

    Generally speaking, butane lighters are the preferred method of lighting a cigar. Using longer, wooden matches is second, you just have to wait for all of the sulfur to burn off first. What you're not supposed to use are lighters using naphtha (lighter fluid, Zippos, paper matches, candles, or your stove, because of the chemicals.

    This candle I used wasn't scented, my dad's girlfriend made it and it's all organic and shit. I really like the taste, but it's too inconvienent to stop using a bic.

    I found a pack of lighters 3/$1. They're small because they're supposed to fit in a cigarette pack, but they're the perfect size for pushing down a bowl to get a few more hits out of it. They're also indented at the end, so they're good for snuffing out a bowl you don't want burning uselessly.
