Recently I was asked if you can smoke incense. Apparently this person had heard from a friend that this was a new trend going around. I decided to look into it and find out exactly what she was talking about.
So, first off, nobody is smoking incense, whether that be incense sticks, cones, or some other form.
Apparently, there is some product which is falsely labeled as incense but is actually some strange chemical concoction from China. If you are offered a type of incense which you smoke, make sure you tell them no! This material can be dangerous and bad for your health. Seizures and breathing problems have been reported.
Remember, real incense is burned and simply used for it’s fragrant aroma.
I hope you found this information helpful.
