Is it Safe to Smoke Lavender in a Pipe?

Lavender is an aromatic herb widely used for aromatherapy and to promote sleep. Due to its calming effects, lavender has become popular with those trying to give up smoking tobacco and some even mix it into cannabis for an enhanced high. While you can smoke lavender through a pipe, before doing so it is important that you understand any potential safety concerns related to doing so.

Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) has long been beloved flowering plants due to their beautiful hue, soothing fragrance and healing properties. Lavender's soothing effect has been linked to its naturally occurring chemical compounds called terpenes which give plants their aroma, flavors and colors; one well-known terpene in lavender known for this effect is linalool which may have sedative properties as well as help manage anxiety levels and reduce stress levels.

Many have asked whether smoking lavender is safe, and here are a few key considerations before doing so. Smoking any type of plant material can be detrimental to lung health as it releases tiny gas particles that irritate them over time. Furthermore, inhaling lavender smoke may trigger allergic reactions in certain individuals.

Before smoking lavender, individuals must ensure that the flowers have been thoroughly dried out and ground into small, smokeable pieces using either a grinder or pestle and mortar. Once prepared, lavender can either be consumed on its own or mixed into an herbal cigarette or cannabis joint for consumption.
