      1. Where are you located? USA? What state? Where does this stuff ship from? The Contact form doesn’t give us a clue. How long have you been in business?

        1. Thanks for your questions and mea culpa for the confusion. Smokable Herbs was launched in 2011.
          We provide quality content and curate some sellers in order to monetize our website.
          We do not sell products – this is outlined in the contact page.
          You can not order directly from our website. We do not carry inventory. (Our shop pages also highlights this)

      2. Are any of these herbs safe for somebody that’s about 16?
        I’m mostly interested in passionflower, scullcap, and gotu kola

        1. Assuming smoking is legal where you reside, you should know that most of these plants have very mild effects when compared with Cannabis.
          I think Passion flower, Blue lotus, Sage or Gotu Kola are good. I am not a huge fan of Scullcap.
          Cannabis should not be consumed before 21 years old as it can have an impact on mental and physical development. (19 would actually be the ideal age according to scientist)

      3. You mentioned other ways of ingesting some of these herbs, including snorting. Other than finely ground kanna powder, which I enjoy snorting from time to time, what other herbal powders would lend themselves to this type of use?

      4. I’ve developed something called Cannibinoid Hyperemsis So now weed makes me super sick so I have to quit, do you any anything you would recommend to get me over the rough patches/cravings? I know nothing can truly mimic the high from pot but to just have something close would be nice, thanks

        1. Not really, I would not recommend smoking tea leaves, similarly, I would not recommend smoking Ginseng.
          “it is possible to smoke tea leaves. I’m really not sure why someone would want to do that, though. It doesn’t give you a buzz like nicotine nor a high like THC, yet it still fills your lungs with harmful particulate matter.” Source
