There is something deeply satisfying about preparing and smoking a herb joint. The ritual of choosing the right herbs, grinding them to perfection and preparing the final product is truly a pleasurable experience. While the practice of rolling joints can seem intimidating, it’s actually pretty easy. With a little practice, you’ll be able to create the perfect joint every time.
The herbal mix that you choose to smoke can also make or break your cannabis experience, so it’s important to experiment and find a blend that works for you. The “base” herb, usually a non-hallucinogenic herb, should make up about 40 percent of your herbal smoke blend. The action herbs, which have specific effects that you want to achieve, should make up 30-40% of the blend, and flavoring herbs, like mints and sages, can elevate the taste and smell and should make up 10-20% of the blend.
For instance, mullein is a great lung herb that can help open up the lungs and clear congestion when used with cannabis. Mullein is also an expectorant, which means that it can help with bronchitis and asthma. You can also try chamomile, which is great for a relaxing, sleepy nighttime smoke.
Another great herb for your weed blend is damiana, which provides feelings of mild euphoria and can enhance your mood. It’s also a powerful aphrodisiac and has been used for love making dating back to the Aztecs and Mayas. It can also help with stress relief, anxiety and promote deep relaxation.
