Stop using nitrile gloves for trimming. Unless you have a special kind that makes it so it doesn’t stick. When you go to grab gloves , try vinyl gloves from Great Value. Trimmed the stickiest weed yesterday and none of it stuck to my gloves. I don’t think nitrile is the wave anymore.

I use bare hands - nothing else. Love smoking finger hash.

When you google them it says they are oil and grease resistant and also state they arnt disposable because of there constituents since one of them is plastic and are a possible probable threat to the enviroment.they also say they arnt safe for handliing food or for people with sensitive skin..vinyl gloves are made of plasticizers ,pvc and polymers..

If you go to the great value vinyl gloves online it says the opposite. Says bpa free. Also I have sensitive skin and it’s perfect . Nitrile doesn’t seem that far removed from vinyl when it comes to the environment.

I've heard of some growers using gloves that are made from materials that are less likely to attract and hold trichomes, such as nitrile or latex gloves.

But it seems like you've had good luck using vinyl gloves. You can get any gloves you like from https://harmonycr.com/medical-gloves/ shop. Also, you can try using a trimming tool or a trimming machine which can help you to separate the buds from the leaves and the stem, without having the trichomes sticking to your fingers. It's always good to know different options and try different things, so you can find the best way of trimming for you.

I ripped out some plants a few days ago...losers plants ( I don't want to talk about😒 ) 5+ weeks in flower, they were twisted through the netting and I just cut them off and pulled them out. In the process I got resin all over my arms and hands............

no biggy just a bit sticky............

Then a few hours later I developed an itchy rash over my arms and the back of my hands like stinging nettles. 1st time that's happened to me I can recall ..... It can be toxic stuff when spread liberally on skin

Don't know if it matters, but vinyl is potentially a cancer causing substance.
Of course, so is dope smoking if you listen to big brother, so there is that!

you got me reading..

''Because of how it is typically smoked (deeper inhale, held for longer), marijuana smoking leads to four times the deposition of tar compared to cigarette smoking.''

holding it in for 10seconds seems to be very bad for your health, i count till about 4 then exhale. might have to rethink that.

I'll have to do some testing. I just loved them because non-stick..but maybe I was too quick to assume it was healthy.

@PipeCarver resin from weed gave you stinging feeling???

Itchy, very itchy with a red rash from my elbow's to my finger tips everywhere that my pot rubbed against my skin. I had to apply a cream steroid lotion to it to calm it down.

That's wild. What do you think was the cause though?
