WATCH: Man Tries Vaping World's Hottest Pepper

A man tried to vape the world's hottest chili peppers, and it does not turn out well for him. YouTube user Russell Hawkins grows Carolina Reapers, the world's hottest chili peppers, and thought it would be a good idea to vape them.

Hawkins began the YouTube video warning all viewers, "Do not try this at home." He then gave a detailed back story of his appreciation of the Carolina Reaper peppers, and his daily routine of adding the peppers into his morning cappuccino.

Hawkins then states that he is a "trained professional" and that 9-1-1 is on standby several blocks away in the event that he needs assistance. He prepares the vaping apparatus "juicing it up" with Carolina Reapers, and then finally vapes it around the 5 minute mark.

Hawkins vapes the peppers and then immediately hacks and coughs exclaiming, "Oh my God, my lungs are on fire." He then hits it again. Then as another treat for the viewer, he has two more surprises up his sleeves.

Hawkins snorts the peppers, and then for good measure puts some in his eye.


This video will leave you wondering how he is still alive if he regularly partakes in shenanigans of this sort. But luckily for all of us, we get to watch his hilarious reaction to vaping the Carolina Reaper peppers.
