Video: Here’s What Happens When You Vape the World’s Hottest Chili Pepper

One of the downsides of living in our modern world is that people will do literally anything to get 15 seconds of fame on the internet. While this is a horrible thing for our culture and will probably be the downfall of western civilization, it does have it’s upsides: We get to be entertained by watching all of these people doing stupid shit in their quest for fame.

In this video, Russell Hawkins shows the results of vaping the famed Carolina Reaper, the world’s hottest chili pepper. According to Wikipedia:

Bred in a Rock Hill, South Carolina greenhouse by Ed “Smokin'” Currie, who runs the PuckerButt Pepper Company in Fort Mill, it has been rated as the world’s hottest chili pepper by Guinness World Records since August 7, 2013.[2][3] The original crossbreed was between a ghost pepper (a former world record holder) and a red habanero.[4] The official Guinness World Record heat level is 1,569,300 Scoville Heat Units (SHU), according to tests conducted by Winthrop University in South Carolina. The figure is an average for the tested batch; the hottest individual pepper was measured at 2.2 million SHU.[2][3][5]

Eating one of these things sounds like a nightmare, but can you imagine vaping one and getting that hot goodness deep into your lungs? Watch the video to see the result.

As Hawkins says about his experience:

“My mouth’s on fire, my nose is plugged up, I ended up puking for about ten minutes…once again, don’t try this bullshit at home. Don’t do this. Don’t do it at all. It’s not good. I didn’t need 911, but definitely don’t ever try to vape anything hot, especially the world’s hottest pepper.”

Looks like we won’t be seeing any Carolina Reaper e-juice for sale any time soon.
