Need a lift?
The Uplift herbal smoking blend is the perfect pick-me-up. Who among us doesn’t need one every now and then? Whether you’re looking for a mid-day boost or a lift at a party, rolling a joint with the Uplift blend offers the perfect level of zip to get you going. This is not a blend to smoke before bed, so don’t say we didn’t warn you! The force is strong with this one and it will surely make a believer out of skeptics of the power of non-intoxicating plants.
Not sure where to begin with cannabis strains for an energetic experience? It's important to find the strain that's right for you, and this article is a good starting point. And as with all our Ouid herbal smoking blends, you can customize your joint by playing around with ratios of Ouid and weed. Depending on how high you want to get, you can mix with 5%, 50%, or even 90% Ouid.
Where does the Uplift blend get its power?
We harness the natural power of super invigorating and energetic plants in this blend. These plants have strong flavour and aroma and that’s part of why we love them. But they need to be balanced with more mellow herbs that allow for a smooth smoke. Read about these powerful herbs and their mellow counterparts below.
Tulsi or "holy basil" (ocimum gratissimum) is known as the “queen of herbs” and has been used as a medicinal plant in India for over 5,000 years. Tulsi is best known as an adaptogen, helping the body increase its natural resistance to physical, emotional, and environmental stressors.
Mullein (verbascum thapsus) is commonly used today to support pulmonary and respiratory functions but it has a long and quirky list of traditional uses that includes hair dye, candle wicks, fertility amulets and love charms. We’ve used it here to create a smoother smoke.
Gotu Kola (centella asiatica) is renowned throughout Asia, the South Pacific, and SouthEast Asia. Gotu Kola has been used for centuries in both Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicine. Appreciated for its positive effects on memory and focus, this sacred and rejuvenative herb is used for its cooling and head-clearing properties.
Peppermint (mentha x piperita) peppermint is arguably the most popular of the over 600 varieties of mint that are out there. Its cool, refreshing flavour and invigorating scent stimulate and awaken the senses.
Passionflower (passiflora incarnata) is a beautiful climbing vine with unique purple flowers. Perfect for calming a restless mind, passionflower brings balance and clarity without sedation.
