Looking for the best herbs to vaporize? You've come to the right place! In this article, we'll share our top picks for the best herbs to vaporize, including lavender, chamomile, and more.
Several different herbs can be vaped, each with unique benefits. Here are some of the best herbs to vape:
As an antiseptic and antibacterial, lavender is one of the most popular herbs on earth. It is said to have soothing properties and a beautiful flavour and aroma.
Lavender has been vaporized for its relaxing qualities to cure insomnia and ease discomfort, but there isn't enough research to support any benefits just yet, so be cautious.
Early in the day and late in the day are the best times to vape basil. By vaporizing basil, citrus terpenes are brought to life, giving it a citrusy, sweet lemon flavour.
Basil has strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties in addition to its calming and mood-lifting effects, but more research needs to be conducted to prove those claims.
Damiana provides a strong, aromatic flavour to your blend. Anecdotal evidence suggests that while Damiana does give off a mild buzz, it is not nearly as strong as cannabis. It tastes harsh but fragrant when vaporized, and it also boosts mood and vitality.
Chamomile is widely used in herbal tea blends, because of its supposed relaxing properties and fruity, floral flavour. While having a little coarser flavour when vaped, it can have a comparable relaxing effect. Also, it tastes better when mixed with other relaxing herbs like blue lotus, lavender, or lemon balm.
Ginger is more known as a spice, but you can vape it too. With its spicy and strong flavor, we recommend mixing it with smoother dried herbs such as chamomile, mugwort or even mullein. Also, ginger is known to have some therapeutic properties, but more studies need to be conducted to prove those claims.
However, there is plenty of other herbs you can vaporize, like green tea, hops, coltsfoot, blue lotus, mint, calendula and sage.
What are the benefits and risks when you vapor herbs?
Herbs are used much more effectively when they are vaporized since there is less waste and more extraction of valuable elements. It's also less likely to irritate your throat or lungs. However, we do need to reiterate our disclaimer and really drive home the point that smoking or vaping herbs of any kind carries inherent health risks, such as long-term lung damage. So if you must absolutely smoke herb leaves, or even smoke flower petals, always do your research and do so in moderation.
If you have never used an herb before and want to try something new for the first time, always consult a health practitioner beforehand.
