    Hemp wicks?

    Soooo, Wickandwireco are selling hemp wicks, anyone tried this? I imagine that if it were to get a dry hit it wouldn't be as bad as the cotton?

    Hemp is much slower wicking than Cotton, and tastes like shit on dry hit.

    Yeah haha. If you dry hit, inhale and hold.

    My brother has been using hemp and cotton for a while, take a bit longer to wick. Should be safer given hemp doesnt need to be sprayed with pesticides

    I used to use a hemp/cotton rope wick from Vapersphere
    but they no longer stock it.

    gate7 where does your brother get his from ?

    I actually preferred it to just cotton ....
    wicks just as well
    being a rope it's quicker & easier to re-wick
    it always lasts about 2 days longer than cotton before you got any burnt tastes.

    I found the pesticide quite noticeable in "organic" Muji cotton so, after reading up on rayon after the Busardo vid,
    rayon on ecf and more research,
    I gambled & won with Tencel | FeltFine

    I steamed about 5 grams of it, allowed it cool & dried in the fridge.

    I am thrilled with it.
    No taste.

    You may be able to get the 100% rayon (lyocell, tencel) from a hairdresser for next to nothing.
    Some vape vendors are selling it.

    On my list to compare it with Graham's
    Some AVF members experience with Graham's

    The spinning tencel is 10 cm fibres side by side-
    the rope looks more matted

    Unless they've done a lot since us veterans tried this many moons ago (at that point we had to take this tangled mess, boil it many times and then possibly comb it out) it will still have that ground up stem. seed hint on the taste.
