    I believe there are small amounts released from the burning of both.
    I could be wrong, but I doubt it's enough to trip your detector up.

    I used to smoke cigarettes and just about everything else in my room and never set off my carbon monoxide detector. Those detectors are set up to detect dangerous levels of carbon monoxide from stoves, furnaces or that type of leak but not from puffs of smoke. I doubt a carbon monoxide detector would even sense the trace amounts of it in your smoke.
