Vaporizing legal herbs can be a delightful aromatic experience. Some of these herbs even have psychoactive effects, albeit on the mild side.
1. DAMIANA: 190 °C / 374 °F
Damiana is a shrub native to Mexico that will impart a strong aromatic taste to your blend. Believed to be a major component of the original margarita recipe, the plant blooms beautiful yellow petals, but the leaves contain the active constituents damiana has become known for.
According to anecdotal reports, damiana induces a mild buzz, but nothing near that of cannabis. It is thought to act as an aphrodisiac and has been shown to increase sexual activity in both male and female rats. For centuries, damiana has been invoked in sexual scenarios by both men and women.
2. CATNIP: 150 °C / 302 °F
3. VALERIAN: 200 °C / 392 °F
Native to Europe and Asia, valerian is a flowering plant that blooms pinkish-white flowers; however, it’s prized for the active constituents contained in its roots. Valerian has long been used for its sedating and calming properties—so long, in fact, that the herb was a popular feature in ancient Greece and Rome.
Vaporizing valerian is believed to induce much stronger effects than taking it in pill form or as a tincture. It mixes very well with lemon balm and other sedative herbs such as hops, passionflower, skullcap, etc.
4. PASSION FLOWER: 140 °C / 284 °F
Passionflower is a perennial vine that can be found growing naturally mainly in regions of Mexico, Central and South America. It blooms ornate purple-blue flowers and is highly prized for its sedative qualities. All of the above-ground parts of the plant can be utilised for this characteristic.
When vaporized, passionflower adds a relaxing and slightly tranquillising quality to the experience. Vape at low temperatures either by itself or mixed with other relaxing herbs if you want to kick back a bit in the evening.
5. LAVENDER: 130 °C / 266 °F
Lavender is probably the most famous aromatic herb. It has a great taste and smell, boasts calming and relaxing properties, and is both antiseptic and antibacterial. Even if you are not interested in these properties, the aroma alone makes it a worthy addition to an herbal mix.
These flowering plants can be found around the world and are popularly used in culinary and meditative exploits for the relaxing scent of their flowers. In a vape mix, lavender immediately places the mind somewhere calm and serene.
