Combustion by products?

Discussion in 'Marijuana Consumption Q&A' started by ogderp84, Nov 1, 2014.

  1. I've been smoking about 15 years now, almost every so gel day in that 15 years. And today... Three different patients at my collective I volunteer at... I overheard talking about combustion by products. I couldn't really hear the convo, but I looked it up at home and got a few hits, but not really any explanation. I have never heard this term before today... Can someone explain what exactly combustion by products are when it comes to smoking bud. I don't get it.... I'm sure I know, just never heard the term maybe?

  2. Submarine sandwiches, wings, burgers, you know the products you buy after you combust.  Lol.   :metal:
  3. It sounds like they were talking about a vaporizer.
  4. Yea almost all pen vapes dont vape they combust which is esentially just smoking it

  5. Combustion by products sound like it would be all that resin and black shit left in a bowl after you smoke it. If I'm not mistaken I believe it's just any substance left over after initially combusting your herb as compared to vaporizing it.
  6. This guys answer seems the best.

    I would think they're talking about the negative health effects of combusting weed, since weed smoke has many of the same toxic/carcinogenic byproducts as tobacco smoke.

    Acetaldehyde, polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAH), CO, tar, etc. are found when combusting any plant matter, whether it's oregano, weed, or tobacco.

    Having said that, I still prefer both the medical relief and high that smoked cannabis gives me compared to vaping it.
  8. Yes.  Combustion byproducts are exactly what they are called.  The byproduct of combustion(burning something).  A fancy term for smoke and the yuckies in it like carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, sulfur dioxide.  Things that are not good for you.
