Know Any Herbs Or Spices That Taste Good When Smoked?


Recommended Posts

The basis for alot of smoke mixes is mullein

 

Maybe because its been used as an expectorant for chronic coughs...I think it actually helps clean out your lungs when you smoke it...go figure! And cannabis diaolates bronchia!And its smoke....figure that out! :D

 

There are other common smoking herbs like damiana, passionflower, skullcap, indian warrior, hops, dagga...

 

Those are smoke-able herbs plus there are many more

 

places like bouncing bear botanicals and health food stores you can buy these herbs

 

skullcap is part of the mint family and has minty flavor...would be better vaped I think...comes with so many tiny stems that need to be removed to really think about smoking it but it has a nice calming effect even just taking the capsules

 

That's the thing with so many of these herbs...they would be so much better grown and enjoyed fresh...many many good herbs besides cannabis you can smoke...even ginseng!

 

But cannabis has got to be the king of herbs with all it can do! :D

i don't like clove cigs myself but i had no idea granny banned them! thats strange because a friend of mine walked all around ann arbor during hashbash puffing away on one.

 

when is govt going to learn that you cannot protect children from ANY substance by banning it? cannabis has been illegal my whole life but i'll be darned if i didn't have my hands on it before i even made it out of middle school. bunch of fools anyways.

The topic says taste good when smoked

 

Never tried that. Vaporized however.....

 

I found this book to be very informative on the subject, written by an Iranian who is a 7th generation herbalist, he's also authored a few other good books. ;) He also is the inventor of the Vapir Vaporizer.

 

this book is a must read for anyone who owns a vaporizer. Chronicling the history of smoking and vaporization, the different types of vaporizers, how they work as well as different herbs and their benefits when vaporized are all analyzed.
