While a spliff might seem intimidating for beginners or those new to smoking, it’s actually the perfect delivery system for your herb. It helps a stash last longer, offers a low dose of THC, and can help achieve the desired effect more easily than a blunt or a joint. And now, two local women are challenging the “more THC, the better” mentality with a first-of-its-kind preroll in Oregon: an herbal spliff that mixes cannabis and a smokable herb blend.
A popular ingredient for menthol cigarettes, mint is a soothing herb that can be used to freshen breath and enhance the effects of cannabis. It contains the terpene myrcene, which is known to boost cognition and increase relaxation.
Another popular herb for spliffs, chamomile is a relaxing herb that can be used to calm the mind and ease tension. It also contains the terpenes linalool and alpha-pinene, which are known to promote sedation and reduce anxiety.
Mullein is a plant with many uses, including its ability to soothe the lungs and throat when smoked. Its smoke has a calming and soothing quality, making it ideal for helping users relax and unwind after a long day.
While it is not as strong as THC, passionflower has a mildly sedating effect that can be great for sleepier or spiritual smoke sessions. It has been used by ancient cultures for its lucid dreaming properties and is commonly sprinkled into herbal smoking blends to encourage relaxation.
