Sometimes, there's a lot of confusion over which herbal smoking products are which, especially because there seems to be a growing number of terms for them. In short, almost all of them mean the same thing. Before we go any further, though, please note that none of the smoking herbs we offer through our Herbal Smoke Shop are intended to be a substitute for any medicine or drug, legal or otherwise, and we make no claims whatsoever in relation to any of the products. Please do not ask about whether any of the herbal smoking products we offer mimic the effects of any other product. We offer each one of these to be enjoyed for their own pleasurable taste and unique properties.
We focus on herbal smoking blends of traditional herbs and blends used, at times, for thousands of years in shamanic and Native American traditions, as well as rituals in Africa, India, and elsewhere. We offer our own favorite blends as well as herbal buds and blends from a select few manufacturers based on the ones we have found to be most enjoyable and pleasant-tasting. None of our products contain any of the dangerous chemicals or other additives that appeared on the market for a while. We're proud to offer herbal smoking blends that are completely legal everywhere in the world.
Although many of the exotic botanicals used in these herbal smokes have long histories of use, due to FDA regulations, we make no claims in regards to the effects of these products on the human body. Furthermore, none of our herbal smoke blends are intended to diagnose, prevent, or cure any disease.
That being said, there are really four main types of herbal smoking blends:
FLOWER BUDS: These come in 2 forms. One is a real flower bud, harvested from a real plant. The other is a “pressed” bud that is held together by some sort of natural bonding agent such as cellulose (the same thing that the “glue” on rolling papers is made from). Both appear as real "buds", but only a few are actual buds from a single plant. Many blends from places like International Oddities seem to be based on well-known herbs such as Wild Dagga and Wild Lettuce, and come in varying types. The real flowers can be made into tea.
SMOKING BLENDS: These are everything else. Anyone can make claims as to the potency of their herbal smoking blends, but the only ones we offer here, are based on solid historical data, recipes, and intensive research into the most effective blends with tangible effects. If something only has a placebo effect, or if the herbal smoke isn’t tasty and enjoyable; we don’t offer it. These can also be made into teas.
BURNING BLENDS: This is something that we thought of many years ago. These are more versatile, as they can be rolled into cigarettes and smoked as an herbal smoking blend or burned as an incense. These exclusive blends typically don't have herbal extracts as our smoking blends do; they are recipes with natural herbs in them, made from pure leaves only. These blends can be made into teas.
SMOKING SOLIDS: These are composed of herbs and natural resins that make them more intense and enjoyable. There are a few different types, with blends all based upon ancient recipes that helped our ancestors to better connect with various levels of perception! The smoking solids can be burned as an aromatherapy or smoked for more intense effects.
We have our own personal favorites, but to pick a Top Seller would be impossible. Those looking for tasty smokes gravitate towards our Blueberry Buds, while others who want to use their herbal buds as a base for flavor enhancers often choose our A'hia Buds. Then, the blends we carry in our Herbal Smoke Shop with the most potent blend of herbs in them are, as usual, our Daganda and Lucid Blends, both of which come in colorful packaging, complete with rolling papers, and as with all our products at the shop; backed by our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.
WARNING: Smoking of any kind is dangerous to one’s health, even if it's a chemical-free herbal smoking blend like the products we offer here. Be Aware That Any Of Our Products Containing California Poppy May Cause User To Have A False Positive Drug Test For Opiates!

Sassafras Root, sassafras albidium
Named in the 16th century by the famed botanist Nicolas Monardes, the word Sassafras is generally agreed to be a corruption of the Spanish word for saxifrage. Despite this, the latin name developed as Sassafras albidium, and the common name Sassafras stuck. Since this time, it has long since been known for its medicinal and culinary properties, as well as having been the subject of a variety of folklore. With the saplings often growing in clusters, you can usually find larger Sassafras trees in bunches, with many shoots and branches deviating from a main trunk. Known for this clustering and its distinctive leaves and flowers, it is also famed for the sweet fragrances it is said to produce. Many say that the roots and leaves possess an aroma that reminds them of citrus, though, depending on who you are speaking with, some might tell you that the crushed leaves produce a scent that is very similar to root beer.
In Spanish lore, this Sassafras was well known for its treatment of syphilis, rheumatism, and similar such illness, and it`s leaves still finds use in some regions as a condiment or thickening agent for soups. Some lore also speaks of it in a supernatural light, fearing that if it is burned that it will cause another`s death as it crackles and pops-perhaps in part due to the fact that its oily wood does not burn well, and produces much smoke.
Today, it is mostly viewed as a wonderful ingredient for tea, with many using its bark and leaves to produce a flavorful tea blend. Though there is some controversy over the matter, Sassafras is still often viewed as a potent holistic aid in relieving the pains of menstruation and rheumatism. Folklore states sassafras was used as a spring tonic to clean bad blood. It is helpful with eczema, psoriasis, rheumatism and gout. In Louisiana, the leaves are used as File condiment in sauces, and also for thickening soups
Also smoked, in a pipe, the root bark, which is highly aromatic and inebriating makes a wonderful organic smoke. Magickal uses of Sassafras include health, money and overcoming addictions. Place in wallet or purse to attract money. Use as a prosperity incense. Add to sachets for healing. Makes Great Tea!

Siberian Motherwort, leonurus sibiricus
This has been used in chinese medicine for thousands of years under the name Yi Mu Cao. Siberian Motherwort is used in Brazil and Chiapas as a substitue for another popular smoking herb and gave it the nick name Little Marijuana. In Thailand it is used as an ethnomedicine for an emmenagogue, diuretic, and a vasodilator. Siberian Motherwort is recorded to contain high concentrations of the diterpenes leosibiricine, leosibirine, and isoleosibirine. Leonurus sibiricus, commonly known as Siberian motherwort or Marihuanilla, is an herbaceous plant native to Asia, including southern Siberia, China, Korea, Japan, and Vietnam. It grows wild in the coastal regions of Brazil as well as Chiapas, the southern-most state of Mexico. It has become naturalized in various other parts of the world such as North America. Siberian motherwort appears in the ancient Chinese “Book of Songs,” or Shih Ching, circa 1000-500 BCE under the moniker t’uei, but it is unknown when the plant was first brought to the New World. Similarly, it is unknown when it was first smoked for its inebriating effects.
Leaves from Marihuanilla are collected while the plant is in bloom, dried, and then smoked in either a pipe or with rolling papers. No toxic dosage is known and typically 1 to 2 grams of the dried leaf is enough for one rolled cigarette. It is often mixed with other herbal smoking blends. As a topical medication, it can be prepared steeped in alcohol. The roots and leaves can also be taken as a tea. Siberian motherwort should be used in small amounts 1 to 2 teaspoons for a cup of tea. The seeds, fruits, and leaves of Marihuanilla all are considered to be of medicinal value in various cultures. In traditional Chinese medicine, the herb is used to treat loss of potency in men, postpartum bleeding or painful menstruation in women, and as a diuretic. In Chiapas, Mexico, native cultures drink the root steeped in tea to aid in menstruation and to calm other female reproductive system ailments. The leaves are alcohol soluble; when macerated in alcohol, the tincture can be applied externally to treat rheumatism or arthritis. AS with all herbals always consult a physician before starting an herbal remedy.
The effects of Marihuanilla can be described as mildly narcotic, though not especially pronounced; thus it is sometimes mixed with other herbs and smoking blends to heighten its potency. Motherwort energies promote inner trust and confidence that the ultimate outcome will be best for all involved in the fullness of time. It is also used for counter-magic and associated with immortality and spiritual healing. It is a protective herb, especially in spells designed to protect pregnant women and their unborn children, It promotes family and love. Makes Great Tea!

Uva Ursi Leaf / Bearberry, arctostaph-ursiylo uva
Also known as Uva-Ursi or kinnikinnick and also found under the name of Clasius, Bearberry has been an herb well-known for its medicinal uses as far back as the 13th century. Marco Polo even spoke of it, reporting that the Chinese were using it as a diuretic to treat kidney and urinary problems. Native Americans were also known to use Bearberry with tobacco and other herbs in religious ceremonies. In this circumstance it was utilized as a smudge or smoked in a pipe, with the smoke of the burned herbs carrying the smoker`s prayers. Elsewhere, the Cheyenne were also said to have found use for it in treating back sprains, while other tribes found that it was of benefit when applied to sores. European settlers often used it as well, seeking it as a treatment for diseases of the urinary system.
Uva Ursi / Bearberry is a diuretic, urinary antiseptic, and astringent. It does not kill the bacteria that cause urinary tract infection. Instead, it releases complex polysaccharides that keep the bacteria "rooting" in the lining of the bladder and urethra, allowing the infectious microorganisms to be flushed away with the flow of urine. Most authorities on herbal medicine note that uva ursi is more effective when the urine is alkaline, that is, when plant foods (especially leafy greens and dried foods) are eaten in greater quantities than animal foods (smoked fish and hard cheese causing the greatest acidity). In addition to treating urinary tract infections (for which it is approved by the German Commission E), uva ursi has been reported effective against chronic diarrhea, E. coli, high blood pressure, and cold sores, herpes and vaginal infections. Bearberry / Uva Ursi still frequently looked to in modern holistic medicine for many of these same purposes that were known of old. Most commonly it is now used in treating diseases of the bladder, particularly those involving inflammation. Some herbalists also consider it of use as a weight-loss aid, and a great aid in helping infections heal.
An excellent alternative to tobacco or illegal substances. Smokes cool and well, with an exquisite bouquet, great in a pipe or rolled. A natural and legal relaxant - euphoric like smoke. Uva Ursi was well-known to the Native Americans, who smoked the leaves either alone or mixed with other smoking herbs in their ceremonial pipes, believing that the smoke carried their wishes to the higher powers. They called the herb "Kinnikinnick," which roughly means "smoking mixture."
Not surprising, then, that the leaves ingested in a tea are believed to increase psychic abilities and divination in modern magick. Powdered herb can be sprinkled around the alter area or into burning candles in divination rituals, and leaves can be made into sachets to help increase psychic powers. Dried leaves can be mixed with tobacco or other smokeable herbs and used for meditation and increased psychic abilities. Use this herb to wash your talismans or amulets, in healing spells to increase their potency or to induce visionary dreams. Used For Purification, Awareness, Joy, Boundaries, Clears blockages, And Psychic Workings. Makes Great Tea!

Find our WILD DAGGA LEAF, RESINS, & TINCTURES Category that explains the difference between the two main strains of Wild Dagga. This variety contains the large SEED PODS, which is what separates this stronger strain from the weaker Lion's Tail strain. Notice that the photos of each product are different, and there's a reason for this: Lion's Tail is weaker and less expensive (but still a very nice product). Many vendors we've found try to "pass off" that less expensive variety as "THE" infamous "Klip Dagga" variety. These are genuine Leonotis nepetifolia flowers! Makes Great Tea!

Wild Dagga Flowers (Lion's Tail)
The active component responsible for the pleasant effects of this plant is Leonurine, which has now been isolated and is being synthesized in a lab, but of course, it's less effective than the actual plant. South Africa made this plant famous, and use is reported among several indigenous tribes who used both the leaves and the flowers of this powerful spiritual ally. The flowers were often added to tobacco, but also act as powerful enhancer for many other herbs.
The flowers are where the most concentrated active alkaloids are, and as you decide on your Wild Dagga purchase, know this: There are many who offer Wild Dagga Flowers, but it's important to know this that these particular flowers are from the LESS STRONG (and less expensive) variety called "Leonotus leonurus" and not the more portent strain known as "Leonotis nepetifolia." The stronger strain of Wild Dagga flowers is also called "Klip Dagga" (and this goes for the leaves as well). This is why we offer more than just one variety of plants; to educate you about what is real about and what is often misrepresented by many unscrupluous vendors on the internet.
This particular variety (Lion's Tail) DOES NOT HAVE SEED PODS because this Lion's Tail variety does not grow from seed pods. This produces a much larger amount of flowers, but as is to be expected, is less strong than the Klip Dagga Flowers that we also offer. Ours flowers are soft, orange flowers only, hand-picked, with no pods, and already less expensive than anywhere else we have found, but find out for yourself; do the research, find the truth, and decide for yourself!

Wild Lettuce, lactuca
Anesthetic and Sleep Aid Herbal Smoke
Often found written as the names Bitter Letuce and Opium Lettuce, Wild Lettuce Leaf was widely used in the 19th century among many doctors as a sedative when opium could not. It also experienced a resurgence of popularity in the 1970s, where it was widely used recreationally for those psychotropic properties it possesses that are similar to opium, despite the fact that the leaf contains no opiates. The greens are also sometime harvested and added to salads, with the leaves having a somewhat more bitter taste.
Medicinally, many herbalists still prescribe it as an anesthetic and sleep aid. The oils extracted from the leaf are sometimes used in a tea to aid in sleep, with other drinks sometimes being fashioned for this purpose by soaking the leaves in alcohol.
Recreationally, wild lettuce leaf is also quite popular in alternative smoking blends, where the psychotropic and sedative qualities help the smoker relax. Wild Lettuce Leaf was also often used among Native Americans as part of rituals, where it helped to achieve visions and trance states, as well as aided in more vivid dreams. Makes Great Tea!

Yarrow, achilea millefolium

As such, it has acquired many names over the years, including Achilea millefolium, nosebleed plant, old man`s pepper, sanguinary, milfoil, soldier`s woundwort, thousand leaf, and thousand seal. As one might guess from the varied names, Yarrow was often carried along with military armies on the march for the purpose of slowing and stopping the blood flow of wounds. Indeed, it was written that the Greek hero Achilles even carried it with his army to treat wounds. In the mid ages, the herb's use was extended further, and was a component Gruit, which was used to flavor beers before hops became prevalent. It was also used as a popular vegetable during the 17th century, with leaves providing a pleasant taste when they were used in a manner similar to spinach
Today, interestingly, many herbalists have found Yarrow to be of great use in treating colds and influenza. There is also some evidence that it provides a positive impact on the circulatory, digestive, excretory, and urinary systems. Herbalists have also applied it in the treatment of allergies that involve mucus problems, perhaps most famously for hay fever.
