Is Using An Aluminium Foil Pipe Bad For You?

Aired on: 2013.06.02

Is Aluminum Foil safe to smoke out of? What if you've only smoked Marijuana out of aluminum once or twice as opposed to daily? These are questions a lot of Cannabis smokers e-mail me after the fact. They want to smoke their weed, but have no pipe, so they create one out of aluminum foil. Today on Lex's world we'll tackle this question. To understand it we have to cover a few things regarding the chemistry of Aluminum: anodized vs non-anodized aluminum, the effects of inhaling aluminum (accumulation in the lungs) and what it takes in terms of direct flame in order to make foil react in a way that makes the actual metal inhalable. For that last one I have a demonstration.

Long story short: its better to avoid using Aluminum foil as a pipe, bowl or any kind of other smoking device. Especially frequently. And with real, anodized pipes being so cheap & easily available these days, why not get a real one?
