In actual point of fact, cannabis oil is flammable and does burn readily if ignited instead of vaporized.
Leaving residual butane in the oil would not come remotely close to producing the effects demonstrated, because there simply would not be enough present, unless it was stupidly obvious.
The key point I think may be missed here, is that burning cannabis oil in in any form, is a bad thing. Refining the concentrate into it's absolute reduces the danger to a minimum, but any time you burn cannabis, in any form, you ingest smoke that is insalubrious.
At my age, my lungs no longer accept burning material, so I surrendered and no longer offer any arguments to try and justify it. I just say no!
Well, um, mostly. To my eternal damnation and discredit, sometimes I just have to taste to see if it tastes as good as it smells. Kaf, kaf, kaf...........
Another key point missed, is that many oral or topical medications require an oil extraction. All cannabis medical needs are not met by toking, and without oil, we would not have the oral and topical meds available to us that we do.
I challenge anyone stepping up to the line in the sand, that cannabis patient medical needs include light years more than simply toking the best of the best full melt clear dome hash, regardless of how delightful it is.
I see that as more of the issue, and wonder why the question ever arose and having arose hasn't long since been put to bed!
For instance, what other medications do you use to maintain your health and well being that you go to such great lengths to eschew and discredit?
Aspirin? Wanna talk about how that is made and how flamable acetic anhydride is?
PS: The pipe they are dumping the oil in is incandecent. It should just dropping below red to be in the vaporization range.
It would also take an egregeously excessive amount of oil to create that much flame. What were they thinking or trying to demonstrate do you suppose?
