I’m totally amazed at how extremely expensive butane lighters are in this day and age.
Even the name brand lighters seemed to be cheaper when I was a little kid, regardless of whether it was a tiny lighter or those really long ones used to light grills. I have tried to buy and use refillable lighters, however I have had all kinds of mixed results with the different lighters I have tried. I don’t know for certain if there is some special trick to getting the butane in the lighter effectively, but it seems like I leak the gas everywhere in the room when I try to fill a palm sized lighter. It gets all over my hands before evaporating a moment later. It can get so ice-cold that you can get a tiny bit of frostbite on your skin if it’s in contact with the nozzle as the gas is spewing out at full speed. Regardless of whether I’m lazy or just clumsy, I’d rather just get those pre filled lighters instead of trying to refill my own all the time. I smoke a decent amount of cannabis flower every month so I am in constant need of at least a few lighters at any given moment in my life. The last thing I want to do is notice that I lost my only lighter when I desperately need to light up with some good cannabis bud. My number one cannabis dispensary is now giving all of their clients a free lighter and a pack of rolling papers for every $50 you spend. It’s truly excellent being able to use a butane lighter without having to spend the money to buy them myself. I love the fact that you get a great brand name lighter that was simply rebranded with the dispensary’s logo. You’re getting the same lighter for free that costs at least $3 at the local gas stations.
