I became aware that Herbal Smokes (@herbalsmokes) existed as I was clicking through @afrohemian’s story on Instagram - her profile is beautiful by the way! I am pretty excited that I found them because I truly believe they are offering a product that will potentially be a blessing in many lives.
Just to give a little background. In September of last year, I decided to no longer drink alcohol or smoke marijuana - or anything else. I was noticing that my experiences with the two were no longer as enjoyable as they were in the past. My body + my spirit were telling me “NO” so I listened + I stopped. One of the best decisions I have made in my life thus far!
Fast forward to the present, it has been over a year since I have smoked anything or had a drink (I will take some sips of my partner’s craft beer for educational purposes!!) However, there are moments when I miss the ceremony/ritual of smoking. My partner smokes marijuana very frequently + sometimes I want to join him + be apart of the experience. Hence, the peaking of my interest in Herbal Smokes!
What Are They?
Herbal Smokes are pre-rolled ‘smokes’ that contain natural, organic herbs + roots that contribute to your respiratory, mental + even emotional health. The 10 base herbs used are (all organic) Mullein, Damiana, Catnip, Spearmint, Lavender, Rose Petals, Eucalyptus, White Sage, Lemon Balm + Raspberry Leaf. [Click here to learn the benefits of each]. This exited me so much because I am a huge advocate for integrating natural leaves, herbs + roots into your daily life for whole health whether as supplements, tea, tinctures or for cooking.
Before I purchased, I had some questions! I reached out to Herbal Smokes via Instagram + asked about any potential affects of the alcohol content in the flavored smokes - the flavored smokes are slowly infused in alcohol to achieve the flavor. They responded promptly + I felt a genuine concern + care for my question. Brownie points! [ I purchased the Herbal Smokes + Rose Moscato Herbal Smokes]
When I received them, first thing I noticed is the nice packaging! They were rolled neatly and I love the rolled tip! For me, the spearmint taste was overpowering + the ‘smoke’ left an aftertaste in my mouth almost as if I had smoked a cigarette. However, I did experience a calm after a few puffs + the spearmint taste became a little less intense. The smokes burn quite slow which is another plus. All in all, on a scale of 1-10 my experience is a 7.
Overall, I think that my days of smoking anything have come to an end! So this may not have been the ideal buy for me, but that is the only reason why. Herbal Smokes definitely gets my stamp of approval as a quality product that clearly takes prides in making sure they are offering the most quality ingredients + really serving as a great alternative for individuals who are looking to decrease or stop smoking cigarettes or Black & Milds! This is a GREAT, HEALTHY alternative. Definitely give them a try. P.S My sober ass was too scared to try the Rose Moscato smokes, but my partner really enjoyed them + that says a lot!
