This is high-activity, granular-activated carbon which is made from selected virgin grades of coconut shell.
To achieve its “activated carbon form,” the shell undergoes a 2000° steam activation process creating millions of pores and increasing the total surface area. Just 1 gram of activated carbon equals 5,381 square feet of surface area. A standard NFL field has 57,554 square feet of surface area … so about 10% of that area is in 1 gram of carbon.
The granular shape maximizes its geometric, microporous surface, significantly increasing surface area and thereby increasing its effectiveness with the short contact time of smoke. As the smoke passes through our activated coconut carbon, tars and carcinogens are trapped in the microscopic pores.
The result is a remarkably smooth, cleaner smoking experience.
