Advantages of Dry Ice Dry ice is inexpensive and easily obtained.Dry ice is non-toxic, but the extreme cold can damage tissue. Wear insulated gloves when moving unwrapped chunks. (Pants of some sort are also a good idea around large exposed chunks of dry ice.)Dry ice requires no flame, electricity, or moving parts to use. Dry ice is compact and more easily moved than tanks of CO2 gas. Dry ice does not put any heat or water into the atmosphere. The frozen CO2 actually helps to control heat due to the fact that of dry ice remains frozen below 100 degrees below zero (terrible for the cannabis seeds)! Disadvantages of Dry Ice The continuous generation of CO2 gas limits the use of exhaust fan cycles.
