how to light a pipe without a lighter

Got Weed, But No Light?

Wednesday September 9, 2015

T here is only one thing sadder than running out of weed: having some but no way to smoke it. If you’ve ever been caught with a packed bowl but no lighter, then this one’s for you. For this week’s Ask Pot Guide, we’re going to show you some stoner hacks to get you smoking even without a lighter.

How can I smoke weed without a lighter?

Whether there’s been a lighter thief in your home or you’ve just burnt out your last one, no flame plus a fresh sack of ganja always equals a bummer. But don’t worry! We’ve got some clever ways to smoke marijuana without having to use a lighter at all.

Try a Knife Hit

Knife hits (a.k.a. “spots”) are a simple way to heat weed using only a few simple supplies: butter knives (not the good ones), an electric burner, a soda bottle top and, of course, little “spots” of weed. To take a knife hit, position the butter knives in between the burner coils then heat. Once heated, touch one knife to a small piece of marijuana then smash it between the other heated knife. Hold the soda bottle top in your mouth (or have a friend help) and inhale the vaporized weed slowly.

Use Dry Spaghetti

This one also requires a stove top burner, though ideally this one will be gas-operated. All you have to do is heat a piece of uncooked spaghetti on the stove until it catches fire then use the flame to light your bowl. You can also use hemp wick if you’re out of spaghetti, but the spaghetti trick reminds me of my college days, so I felt compelled to share it anyway!

Harness the Power of the Sun

Last year, I found a YouTube video that blew me away: it’s a how-to video that shows how to use the sun, a glass jar and a magnifying glass to heat a piece of bud to smoking point. You can watch the video here, but it basically just tells you to put a small bud into a glass jar with a tight-fitting lid then use the magnifying glass to concentrate UV light directly onto the bud. Soon, the bud will begin to smoke and the smoke will fill the jar. When full, just pop the top and take a rip. You can omit the jar, but you’ll probably lose some of your smoke in the process if you do.

Create Sparks

My budtender taught me this trick. In an attempt to light his dab torch, he came across a crazy way to make a spark using only his car’s cigarette lighter and a nickel. After heating up the car lighter, he placed a coin upright then snapped it to the side to create a spark. This was enough to light his torch so he could be on his merry way. Thanks for the idea, Matt!

Bake your Bud

You don’t have to smoke your weed to get high, just infuse it into a little butter or oil then use it in your favorite recipe. Begin by decarboxilating your weed in the oven (to bring out its psychoactive properties) and then use your stove top to infuse cannabinoids into lipids. I suggest using the Mota Pot to take the guesswork out of the process so you’ll end up with the perfect infused product every time.

No need to run out to the corner market for a fresh flame. Use these simple stoner hacks to help you get high even without a lighter on hand.

You could pull a ‘bare grillz’ and get some straw/fluffy stuff and a round stick and see if that works. Otherwise, i have no idea.

Tried paper but it burned too quickly, and I was concerned with inhaling candle wax supplements (is that anything you have experience with to know if it’s a good idea or not?).

Would go to the store, but aforementioned sleet makes an issue for walking and I could drive but I was using afore-mentioned pipe earlier, so. I’d much rather just be able to walk.

Tried googling, but vast majority of answers came from people who sound like they had used afore-mentioned pipe immediately before they answered. I trust someone I know over the alternative if I can’t find at least a remotely reputable site.

Alas, I’ve found the answer though! Perfect final solution. Let’s you take a few drags and is something that seems more. normal to burn, I guess. I can feel my thoughts becoming disorderly already. Anyway, heat the stove top to the highest heat possible (glowing orange) and use metal tongs to light the tip of a toothpick. It starts off as a tiny flame so you have a second to move it into place when lit. Doing it by hand led to it burning too much to even get one use out of it. Hopefully this has been an enlightening experience. I feel my question is answered if it wanted to be locked, though thrilling the downward spiral would be.
