    vapor genie and lighter gas inhalation?

    at first i was gona put this on health, but its not med marijuana related, i do it for recreation.


    so... the question:

    im sure most people know about the vapor genie, and the vapor star-

    when you use it you inhale a lot of gas from the lighter-is this a bad thing? and if so, how bad in comparison to smoking the pot smoke, and not smoking at all (you inhale smoke when you light incense and stuff, and just breathing nower days.)

    esp if your in or around toronto

    I have a vapor genie, and I would think that less gas is inhaled than with a conventional pipe because, with the genie, the heat goes through the ceramic filter before it hits the weed. Interesting question, though. I do tend to use the lighter more with the genie than with other pipes. Doing a google-search, other than badly-made or defective throw-away lighters, I couldn't find any information about health problems from lighters at all.

    Insense is not very healthy to breathe, so I don't use it.

    Your question(s) probably would be appropriate for the "medical" forum.

    there is a butane that is additive free and you can find it at your local pipestore. additives are added to butane to let you smell it when it is leaking.
    aint she pretty?

    i dont mean to sate the obvious but how do you think you get the flame from the lighter???...........
    .......................by burnin the gas that comes from the lighter
    so the answer to your question is that you generally wont have any gas to be inhaled as it is all being burned away and used as fuel to produce the flame that heats ya vapour
    bit of chemistry for ya
    high everyone!!

    you are burning the gas but there is still the biproduct that gas leaves. it leaves a bad taste and can "dirty" your high. just like someone said above, there are butane lighters that burn clean. a friend bought one and you can taste the difference between that and like a bic or something

    hahaha im not sure the exact lighter but go to a cigar or head shop and ask for a clean burning lighter.....it will be a torch lighter. a lot of cigar conisouers(sp) buy them so they dont ruin their cigars by the bad lighter taste.

    I just got a vapor genie and the butane scares me as well. When i use a glass pipe i know its done when it tastes like ash, when i use the vapor genie i know its done when it tastes like butane. I have to imagine thats not good for u...
