  1. Hi I was wondering what herbs would help replacing cannabis in Cyprus or at least to be mixed with cannabis? I appreciate your help! Thanks!!

    • Damiana is usually recommended for mixing with marijuana.
      I also enjoy Kanna, at it potentiates cannabis.

      Mullein and Blue lotus are also good choices.

  4. Is it possible to get a comparison of effectiveness of herbs comparing smoking, vaping, and tea? I am interested in vaping herbs and creating various herb blends.

  5. Hello there, me and my partner live in the UK and have stopped smoking tobacco for the new year. Our issue is that we smoke joints with tobacco and cannabis in a 70%-30% ratio. I am happy to smoke just cannabis in a bong but she prefers to smoke something gradually. We have tried the herbal blend “Farmers Honeyblend – Herbal Blend” with disastrous consequences I was sick straight after and my partner felt very nauseous after smoking a cigarette of it. Could you recommend something that would mix well and give a similar smoking sensation as tobacco (that is not harmful or addictive).

    Thanks in advance .

    • I know this is many months later but my partner and I have been making tea splifs with great results. Especially with herbal and black teas (we’ve been mixing and matching for months and the adventure is half the fun). They’re tasty and satisfy that want for a gradual smoke.

  7. Hello I suffer from high blood pressure and I have been prescribed various medications which do not work. The only medication that does lower my blood pressure is Lisinopril but one of the side effects is diabetes and my sugar levels have been on the rise. Is there any herb I can use to lower my blood pressure. I appreciate your help. Thanks

    Reply
    • Hi Caramelo, I can’t speak by experience, but judging from what I published, I found 5 herbs that help lowering blood pressure.
      I tried including authority sources for each:
      Skullcap
      Gotu Kola
      Marihuanilla
      Yarrow Flower
      And Wild Dagga, altough I can’t find a proper educational source for this one.

      These herbs regularize the blood flow and help lowering blood pressure.
      Drinking them will be the only serious way to help against high blood pressure.

      I recommend you try putting some drops of tincture in a tea. Amazon is full of them and most of them have great reviews like this one for gotu kola

      Good luck, give us news if you find something great.

      Reply
      • Hibiscus is effective at lowering blood pressure and also chrysanthemum flower. Tea is the best administration. You can also use tincture for chrysanthemum.

        Reply
    • Hawthorne Berries or Hawthorne Blend in a tea or you can buy the tincture at any healthfood store and put 1 dropper full in hot water or directly under your tongue.

      Also, Cats Claw which comes in tableted versions or a blend called HyperBalance by GeroVita

      Peace,

      Suz

  8. Hi, herbal blends of smoking product have just hit the shelves in NZ. These have basically had a market created for them by the removal of synthetics last year.

    I’ve tried a brand which says ‘x5’ in strength. The only ingredients are Damiana and Verbascum. This works really well for me. I definitely get a hit.

    Is there an explanation for ‘x5’? Or is this just marketing?

    Reply
    • x5 means it’s 5 times stronger for the same quantity of herbs. It usually means some extraction has been made to get a stronger product.
      Salvia for example can go up to 100x

  9. Hello, I recently figured out that I have large quantities of catnip in my garden and I would like to eventually smoke or make a tea with it. What part of the plant would be smoked, and how long would I need to dry it?
    Thanks

    Reply
    • Thanks for your input.
      The leaves and flowers are edible and smokable.
      You’d want to have about 5 to 10 per cent moisture content, so dry it for about a month and check it every now and then so it’s fresh enough and not too dry.

  10. So I have tride skullcap, damina and California poppy as tea and as smoke, but I have found that the effects come out more when smokeing. Am I brewing the herbs wrong or is it not as good when brewed? And are there any herbs that really work well as teas?

    Reply
    • Great question! A tea is definitely healthier, though sometimes the effects won’t hit you instantly compared to smoking the herbs.
      Damiana aphrodisiac property and Mugwort dream-enhancing property should be more efficient when drank.
      Ginseng and Mullein are full of medicinal benefits when drank too.
      Kava kava relaxing properties are only truly efficient as a tea.
      Wormwood is used in real absynthe but it is really strong and nasty as a tea, though full of benefits.

  11. Hey, can i smoke all kind of sage leaves? And i heard about the madagscar perriwinkles . Is it safe??

  12. Can this stuff make you fail a drug test?

    Reply
    • No for the majority, but in the event you would be screened for salvia, marijuana or kratom, and did consumed it, then yeah you will fail. I suggest you read the “Legality” section of any specific plant you seek to learn more, most of these are legal everywhere.

  13. I have a question. I am sober and not looking to feel different but maybe calm. What do you recommend?

    Reply
  14. would Blue Lily of the Nile, Blue Lotus or its Stamens, or Wild Lettuce, Klip Dagga or Kratom show up on an advanced Corrections Facility’s Drug test? They use some kind of a big machine. I have been searching online and have found no real solid answers. I cant risk my freedom and have been suffering from bad tension headaches 24/7 For more than a month. I was diagnosed with PTSD in 2000 and have recently been under a lot of stress and cannot smoke my preferred herb because of testing.

    Reply
    • Most of these will not show up on a drug screening test, assuming the testers are not looking for a specific one in those you mentionned. Kratom on the other hand is really tricky (source: drugs-forum post on Kratom ) (read the whole thing to know more about kratom and screening test) Some says it can’t be detected for standard test, but could be on advanced one. In either case, you should deny taking any illegal drugs anyway, since it’s not the case.

  15. Hey I was wondering if there’s anything completely safe(except for lungs, that’s expected) that’s produces alot of smoke, gets me high but I could find in the woods? I’m looking for an alternate to weed because Its expensive and the smell is too potent

    Reply
    • Most of these herbs grows in the wood, but in different regions of the United States. It’s probably easier to plant seeds in your surroundings and collect when it’s grown enough
      My point being that you should never smoke something in the woods if you don’t know what it is.

      You could start with marihuanilla seeds or wild dagga seeds

  16. hi alex,
    I’m addicted to shisha, also called hookah, waterpipe etc. Do you know any blend that could replace the flavored tobacco… I mean herbs that i can flavor and add molasses etc. then smoke. Would love to hear from you or others on here.

    Thanks

    Reply
    • Wild dagga flowers mixed with damiana and/or mullein would probably be good.
      Blue lotus would also do nicely. I suggest you start with those and see what you enjoy.
      You could also try to mix wild dagga flowers with shisha directly.

  17. For Passion Flowers, do they grind only the flower, only the petals, or do they do the leaves?

    Reply
    • I believe only the stem is used, not the flowers. It’s similar to wood actually.

      Reply
  18. I was wondering if Passion Flowers and Damiana would be a very good smoking mix. Also, I was wondering, if you didn’t have any paper for you to roll, do you think that computer paper would be a good substitute?

    Reply
    • Passion flowers is kinda hard to smoke, it’s better on it’s own or as an extraction or a tea. Blue lotus could be an alternative to mix with damiana.
      I strongly suggest against using computer paper to smoke anything, it would be much better to have a pipe or a bong in this scenario.

      Reply
    • hahahahahahaha what!? youre kidding right? dont smoke computer paper. rice papers are used for rolling XD

  19. Which herb would trigger creative ingenuity like pot but without the brainfog/scatterheadedness. Tryna be totally lucid with full muse.

    Reply
  20. How would I use them

    Reply
    • Smoking directly from a pipe/bong or vaporizing.
      You can mix them with base herbs like damiana or mullein for a smoother smoke.
