Why use herbal blends?
Herbal smoking blends to the rescue!
You know what really sucks? When you’re trying to enjoy a joint and you over do it. It feels so great when you smoke the right amount of weed, but it can be so rough when you smoke too much. And for most people it’s not easy to control how high they get; inhale too deeply a couple times and it could be lights out for the rest of the night.
Like cocktails, but for smoking weed
For alcohol drinkers, there are lots of delicious options for achieving a gentle buzz without getting completely intoxicated. You can drink a glass of wine, which only has a 12% alcohol volume. Or you can take a stronger liquor and mix it with a non-alcoholic beverage.
Imagine you want to have a drink and the only option available is a shot of tequila. That's kind of what it's like when you smoke a joint of pure weed. You are smoking weed in its most potent form, which is great sometimes and for some people. But a lot of people are looking for a less intense way to smoke that's natural, low-tech and still allows them to enjoy their favourite weed. Herbal smoking blends do exactly that.
Customization is key
Mixing cannabis with a herbal smoking blend allows you to customize the weed content of your joints. Depending on your preference, you can roll a joint with 70% cannabis content, 50%, or even 5%.
In addition to adjusting the ratio to suit your taste, herbal smoking blends give you the ability to take the weed strains you already know and love and try them out with different blends.
The cannabis industry has tried a few different methods to address the desire among users to control how high they get. Vape technology allows you to easily smoke small amounts of weed. However the safety of that technology has been called into question in recent months. Capsules let users control the exact amount they consume to the milligram, but swallowing a capsule isn't exactly a fun activity.
Smoking a joint is already a ritual that people know and love. Herbal smoking blends allow you to preserve that ritual and enhance it with flavour, scent, and a relaxed state of mind that you're not going to get too high. No half-smoked joints floating around the bottom of your bag. No wasteful single-use dosing technology. Just all natural, GMO-free, sustainably foraged or harvested herbs and flowers mixed with the cannabis of your choosing.
