Oregano is a common culinary herb. It is a part of the lamiaceae family and is closely related to mint, but it has more savory flavors and uses than mint. It is very popular in various dishes, but it also has medicinal properties. In fact, some people use it to treat respiratory conditions like bronchitis and asthma. This is because oregano has anti-inflammatory and antidiabetic properties. It also contains antioxidants like thymol and carvacrol, which are cancer preventive agents.
There are some herbal cigarettes on the market that use oregano as a base for their product. These products are sold to people who want to quit smoking regular cigarettes but do not want to deal with the negative health effects that tobacco has.
But, what happens when you smoke oregano? It is important to note that you will not get a high from smoking oregano. This is because oregano is an herb that you can eat and it does not contain THC, which is the component in marijuana that produces the “high” effect.
However, it can be smoked to produce an aromatic infusion that will have a slightly minty flavor because it is in the same family as mint. You can also add it to a beverage to enhance its flavor. In a recent laboratory study, oregano oil was shown to have antibacterial and antioxidant properties, which means that it could help control the growth of microbes that are resistant to antibiotics.
