When it comes to smoking herbs, the cannabis-based herb rosmary has long been a favorite. It has a piney, peppery flavor and is often combined with other herbs for uplifting and relaxing effects.
Rosemary is a fragrant Mediterranean herb in the mint and sage family, with a potent piney flavor and hints of citrus, lemon, wood, and mint. It’s a good source of iron, calcium, potassium, and antioxidants. It can also improve digestion, soothe indigestion, boost mood, and increase immune function. It’s also been used as a medicinal plant, including for its potential anti-inflammatory and circulatory stimulating properties when smoked.
At Meo Marley’s, we recommend always asking your doctor before trying a new herbal remedy, especially an herb like rosemary, as it may have some unintended side effects for you. For example, it’s not recommended to smoke herbs such as rosemary if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, since the camphor in rosemary can cross the placenta and enter the baby’s bloodstream, which can cause irritation and vomiting.
Rosemary can be smoked on its own or in combination with other herbs, such as thyme, lavender, and chamomile for a relaxing herb mix. It also pairs well with hemp flower for a stress-relieving herbal blend. You can even add a pinch of federally legal Delta-8-THC flower for a psychoactive spin.
