I already ordered some hemp wick but this is for those of us that can't get it or just for curiosity i guess lol. First of all if you're tasting the phosphorous from the match or not getting it to light properly, learn to light it correctly. Wait for the head to burn off before you even put it near your joint and hold the match down so it catches the wood and that stays light when the head burns out. I like cigars and to light cigars you use a wooden match to conserve the flavor of the cigar, its been proven to taste alot better and leave alot less taste behind than the butane from lighters except for the torch lighters which supposedly burn the butane before it gets to the cigar. I've tried it and I'm pretty sure wooden matches conserve the flavor of your weed better than a bic lighter but i havent tried comparing with a torch yet. The thing is though cigars by nature have an earthy and woody taste which is why they're aged in cedar so I'm not concerned about the phosphorous as much as the wooden smell from the matches, i think i've noticed it leaves a bit of a woody taste on joints. Anyone know for sure if the wood leaves behind any smell? Any other thoughts on this? This is for taste only not convenience.
