I have no idea if it's possible or not but I don't see why anyone would.

People smoke cigarettes etc. to get the chemicals out of them (e.g nicotine) whereas sawdust doesn't really have any of these chemicals in and I don't imagine smoking it would be very pleasant.

I think you need to ask yourself why are you wondering about this. It's obvious it's not going to be healthy so I think you need to speak to someone about why you want to partake in unhealthy behaviours like this.

hey,
yeah I guess it would be possible...if you rolled it properly like a cigarette. I can't imagine it would work very well though. would probabaly burn out super fast and create a lot of smoke. Also it would make you cough a lot. probably not the best idea!

I guess you could, but it'd be really stupid and most likely be horrible.

You can make a cold smoke generator using saw dust to cook food with but for actually smoking saw dust, I wouldn't advise it. Certain woods will have glue and other chemicals in it which you would be smoking. If it's dry saw dust, it'll burn pretty fast and you'll inhale a generous amount of smoke without any other stimulating chemical. You may have the smoke be scented from the particular wood, so it would be like smoking a large incense.

So yes, it is possible but the greatest pleasurable experience you may get out of it would be a mouthful of incense as well as CO2 and depending on the wood, possible carcinogens.

If the saw dust is from wood that was burnt (i.e. wood in fireplace), I would not recommend smoking that at all as you may have KOH (potassium hydroxide in it). It's a caustic/corrosive chemical I sometimes use in labs to make insects quite transparent by eroding the soft tissues away. The same can and does occur in humans.

It is probably possible, but it is also highly unlikely that you would enjoy it at all.

The Man XX Master beat me to it.

Sawdust is chemically treated wood (Like 2X4s, hence why people still use "Wild wood" in fireplaces. It would be like smoking a piece of paper soaked in liquid paper, with the amounts of glue and harmful treaments and chemicas. It could possibly kill you due to toxic smoke inhalation.

I wouldn't recomend engaging in any behaviours that involve drugs or smoking strange substances because it is dangerous to screw around with household crap. Someone tried inhaling nutmeg and ended up dying due to high doses. Just because it seems safe and is around the house doesn't really mean it is.

There is no point in smoking random things such as saw dust. All it does is put smoke in your lungs which is very bad for your health, it won't give them any sort of high or buzz.

Well if he won't listen to you then that's his problem.

I don't see why he would want to smoke random things in the first place, although for the most part it's probably just rebellion. It's stupid what he's doing and if he's considering smoking sawdust, tell him he's just going to be inhaling a lot of smoke and a lot of chemicals.

I'm not sure if this thread is actually about you or if there is a friend who is doing this. Assuming your friend is doing this, that's their problem and I suspect it's just to be different. Smoking grass isn't much of a brighter idea because there's a risk it has various chemical sprays on it. DDT used to be legal here but it no longer is, something your friend should be thankful for. As others and myself said, if they don't want to listen, then let them smoke away it's their problem what happens to them as a result.

Re: saw dust - July 22nd 2011, 10:45 PM

Oh goodness, sorry for the mini-bump, but for the others that may read this too:

Certain woods have toxins. I am a woodworker in my spare time, and there are some real hazards with just having some sawdusts around. Black walnut trees, for example, make a very nice dark wood, but also poison other plants around the tree. The wood itself is septic if inside skin, and slivers of it are simply not fun.

Common sawdust varies depending on where you are, but none are safe when burned. It is most probably much worse than a cigarette in some ways, if smoked often. I don't suggest smoking in any form, but as a woodworker, I'll say sawdust can be very annoying at best (breathing issues), and toxic/poisonous at worst, not to mention you're filling your lungs with tons of particles. You get one set of lungs, and don't rely on taking someone else's.

As stated, you don't get even a "high" off of it. It is pure destruction.
