Mullein For Smokers

Mullein, scientifically known as Verbascum thapsus, is a fuzzy plant with soft leaves that shoot up tall stalks of yellow flowers. Chances are you’ve seen it before, growing along railroad tracks and disturbed areas of the urban landscape. Known for its lung-friendly properties, this flowering herb has been used medicinally since Dioscorides documented it in ancient Greece. Mullein has been shown to treat various respiratory illnesses, including bronchitis and asthma. Its sedative and expectorant qualities allow it to soothe the lungs and remove excess mucus, making it an effective herbal remedy for coughing. Mullein also has anti-inflammatory properties and is a powerful antioxidant.

It is a gentle herb that is non-hallucinogenic and non-addictive, and is well known for its calming effects when smoked. Often smoked in a combination of other herbs, it provides a smooth smoke with a mild flavor and aroma. When smoked, it offers a soothing, relaxing effect on the lungs and is especially helpful to those suffering from respiratory conditions, such as coughs, congestion, bronchitis, and ear infections.

Mullein is also known to be a natural remedy for bursitis, a painful condition that occurs when the small fluid-filled sacs (called bursae) that cushion your bones, tendons and muscles become inflamed. Regularly applying a compress made from mullein extract or tea to the inflamed area can help to relieve pain and inflammation and heal the tissue.
