What are Smartstiks?
Smartstiks hemp wick are made in Laguna Beach from 100% organic hemp wick and hand coated in pure organic beeswax. Smartstiks hemp wick are 12 inches long available in 3mm and 4mm diameter.
Our intention at Smartstiks is to bring awareness to the health risks associated with long term exposure to butane. The micro amounts consumed every day affect your central nervous system and immune system. People know huffing butane is bad because we can see the effect immediately with slurred speech, droopy eyes, slow motor skills. So why do people think there are no health risk with consuming micro amount for years on end when lighting a cigar, cigarette, pipe, hookah, etc?
Long term butane use can break down myelin, a fatty tissue that surrounds and protects your nerve fibers. Myelin helps your nerve fibers send and receive messages. When myelin is damaged from butane your nerve cells cannot transmit messages as necessary.
Butane also deprives your body of oxygen by displacing air in the lungs. This is known as hypoxia. Hypoxia damages cells throughout your body, but brain cells are especially sensitive to it. The symptoms of brain hypoxia depend upon which part of the brain is affected. If the hippocampus is affected, your memory and ability to learn new things will diminish. If the frontal cortex is affected, your ability to solve complex problems will suffer. If the cerebellum is affected, your movement and coordination will be clumsy. Butane not only affects your brain but also your heart. Butane makes the heart extra sensitive to noradrenalin, a chemical that carries messages from the nervous system to the heart. Noradrenalin tells your heart to beat faster when you are in a stressful situation. If the heart becomes too sensitive to noradrenalin a normal jolt of it can cause the heart to lose its rhythm and stop pumping blood through the body.
So keep your heart strong and your brain clear and let Smartstiks take the butane hit for you!
Smartstiks hemp wicks are made with non drip organic beeswax. The beeswax emits negative ions into the air. These negative ions trap pollen, dust, mold, toxins, pollutants, allergens and prevents them from circulating in the air you breathe,
Simply light the Smartstik with your candle or lighter and use the flame from the Smartstik to light up your smoking herbs or tobacco. Reuse your Smartstik again and again. Make sure to put the cherry (burning ember) out after you are done or it could start a fire- bee smart!
Why Use Smartstiks?
- Your medical herbs, fine tobacco, and blends will taste much better!
- Smartstiks is a natural organic substitute instead of butane lighters and sulfur matches.
- The beeswax will purify the air. The negative ions released will promote health and well-being.
- The flame burns brighter and longer with a stronger flame then any other hemp wick on the market.
