Hemp Wick, a hemp wick with beeswax, is a natural and organic way to light your herbs or tobacco to be smoked. An absolute must for all joint, bong, water pipe, pipe smokers! Traditional lighters can be dangerous because the combustion of butane and gasoline releases hazardous substances. The hemp wick is different; it is made of hemp and 100% organic beeswax and produces no hazardous substances during combustion. Water Resistant!
