Hemp wick is a secondary utility tool for igniting things at a lower temperature and at 3in-10in distances. Pull the wick taut, ignite it at the end, and use it to ignite other objects such as campfires, candles, BBQ grills, tobacco pipes, sage bundles, and more.
Hemp wick burns at a much lower temperature than traditional lighters. This allows it to burn slowly and better preserve the terpene profiles of herbs.
Start a campfire with Hemp wick:
Assemble a small pile of tinder such as leaves, twigs, and pine straw. Add a layer of small-medium sizes sticks in a teepee/cone shape, gradually adding thicker sticks until you are able to put three or four logs on the outside. Take a few inches of hemp wick and wad it up and place it in the center of the tinder. Pull a separate piece of hemp wick taut, ignite the end, and then use the hemp wick to ignite the ball of hemp wick inside the tinder. The hemp wick will continuously burn while the tinder is slowly ignited. Once the tinder is ignited, if everything has been done correctly, you should have a campfire momentarily.
Start a Grill with Hemp wick:
If you are using a wood-burning grill, make some tinder from your wood and assemble a small pile. Add a layer of a few small-medium sizes pieces of wood. Take a few inches of hemp wick, wad it up, and place it in the center of the tinder. Pull a separate piece of hemp wick taut, ignite the end, and then use the hemp wick to ignite the small wad of hemp wick inside the tinder. The hemp wick will continuously burn while the tinder is slowly ignited. Once the tinder is ignited, add the rest of the necessary wood.
If you are using a charcoal grill or propane grill, simply pull our hemp wick taut, ignite the end, and use that to ignite the lighter fluid or propane burners. Hemp wick is perfect to mix in with tinder for charcoal chimneys. Using hemp wick in this application should result in fewer injuries compared to traditional combustion lighters.
Emergency Lighting with Hemp wick:
Hemp wick can be used in emergency situations for lighting. Simply take a spool of our hemp wick and pull a few inches taut (really tight as if you are trying to stretch it out) and ignite the end. Keep this taut piece of hemp wick vertical for a small slow burning flame. You can tilt the hemp wick at an angle to allow the flame more surface area to burn- giving off a larger faster-burning flame.
Making Candles with Hemp wick:
Making candles with hemp wick is just as simple as using any other wick. Currently, we only offer 1mm hemp wick, which is suitable for most small candles. Simply cut a few inches of hemp wick, add a wick tab to the end of it, pour melted wax into a container, and drop in the tabbed hemp wick. You can also make candles but repeatedly dipping the wick into the wax and allowing it to dry in between dippings.
Smoking with Hemp wick:
Smoking with hemp wick is just as simple as any other application. Simply pull a small segment of the hemp wick taut and ignite the end. Use that to light your pipes for a lower temperature that helps preserve terpene profiles. Using hemp wick also removes toxic fuels like butane from the equation, leaving you with the actual flavor of the tobacco or herbs. It may take some time to fully notice the flavor difference but you will refuse to go back to the butane flavor.
