FUCK MAN... I got two pretty noticeable roach marks on my fucking lips right now, and there's no better way of just telling everyone your a pot head, lol.


I've already got long hair, and I always clip my nails when they are wayy too fucking long already... Now i've got black lips. Not good for getting chicks, jobs, or visits with parents.

Although I don't really look like a stoner, my hair is Fabio-like and I wear pretty nice casual clothing.



But anyway, are there any remedies for black roach marks on your lips, or any way to prevent them? And also I don't suck on the roach that much.. could it be the hot air from the blunt burning my lips?

Bah but i'd hate to carry a chillum around...


I'm a daily blunt smoker, I smoke like two-three a day and it's mostly because of the portability and the fact that all evidence is incinerated :smoking:



How about applying coa coa butter on your lips? Or something like that, I'd figure it'd give you some kind of protection.

No dude, actually little burn marks from the heat on my lips... semi-permanent... they take a while to go away.

I mean I can't get these off :confused:

Hmm..I thought you were talking about the black, sticky resin marks, but you mean actual burns? That's a bit strange. Try putting a filter in the end of your blunt so that you can still smoke it all the way down to the end of your ganj without burning your lips.

If you don't know how to make them, it's really simple (This article calls them roaches, but they are also called filters or crutches) :

Roaches don't filter the smoke but they do allow it to flow, and smoke condenses in cylinders. A good roach also stops the joint from dissolving in your mouth or burning your lips when you chase that last elusive toke.
Here's how to make a good one.

Posted ImageThe shape and size of roach is down to personal taste. Wide roaches can make smoke rough whereas tight ones tend to clog, so somewhere in the middle is probably best.

Plain, unprinted card is healthier as some printing inks can emit poisonous fumes when burnt. An excellent roach can be made from a 2cm by 7cm strip of thin card. Tightly roll the card at a slight angel so that the end of the roach is conical. Roll your joint with the roach already inside (conical end facing outward) and let the card spring out a little to allow the smoke to flow.
Some smoker prefer to insert the roach after making the joint (I do), Others find that putting the roach in before rolling is less fiddly and makes for a neater fit and a speedier roll. Go with what suits you.

well if you're not using a filter on your J.. go ahead and do that.
Just wash it off.. Rubbing alcohol will work if regular soap doesn't, and use some chapstick or some shit afterwards.

dont lip it and pass on the roach, thats my only advice. As for what i do to get rid of it, i usually use honey to get anything blunt related out my mouth so maybe it would work on ur lips?

This is gonna sound crazy, but rubbing alcohol will get it off, and so will bug-spray (anti-mosquito crap). If you go with this option, use a gauze pad or cotton balls/swabs to minimize any possible ingestion. Both of those will take it right off with a couple of rubs though, and maybe burn your lips a little bit along the way.

I guess you could use this for a quick-fix if you have to look presentable quickly.

Wow, great fucking advice, this guy deserves the Nobel Peace Price or whatever it's called. :cool:

Damn, I never knew that shit could get that bad, my thoughts would be to just use one of those lil' filters at the end. Your buddies might make fun of you though..:smoking:

Sometimes after smoking fat joints I get mad resin on my lips...if it's really bad you can just scrape it off with a toothbrush.

roll ur blunts with fatter mouthpieces that wont just ooze out res on ur lips. or if u need to use roachs to keep the res away from ur lips. ive never had a problem with a blunt making my lips black, i always wipe them off if i feel moisture or resin on em when im smoking.
