A hemp wick is a string made of hemp and usually beeswax. Users can purchase shorter strands of hemp wick or a whole yarn ball’s worth to get started. Some hemp wicks can burn quickly depending on environmental factors such as wind, so it’s important for the user to use a long enough strand to light their product with so they don’t accidentally burn their fingers when it nears the end.
This is a very natural alternative to lighters. The natural ingredients in the hemp wick don’t produce any harmful toxins when lit, so users don’t have to worry about breathing in extra chemicals.
