I really hope I'm on the correct area of this site, if not, my apologies . I was wondering, if you want to smoke resin, does using rubbing alcohol make it bad so you can't smoke it? I've only cleaned my pipes once and I boiled it in a regular pot.. for hours... The gunk wasn't coming off and I was hoping to be able to gather the resin and put in the in the bowl and smoke it. Well what could have been taken out of the pipe weas evaporated in the water.. I was wondering.. what is the best method to clean your pipe while at the same time gathering the resin inside it to smoke. And also I was wondering, is smoking resin a good thing and will it get you high. I repect you people a great deal from the articles I have ran across and learned much from so I know I'm coming to a serious source with answers.
