Hey, did you know you can smoke natural herbs with your cannabis? Yea, I found this out over a year ago, and I have been doing it ever since. Not only are the herbs natural, but each one serves a spiritual and physical purpose.
One of the most significant benefits I gain by mixing my herbs is that they help me retain my cannabis way longer. Buying and smoking cannabis can be expensive, and this helps me save so much money.
I do want to mention that if you are a person who likes to smoke to get extremely high, then this is not for you. Mixing the herbs means less weed than usual. While this may be a bad thing for others, it was a huge benefit for me. I personally like having that balance while smoking.
I also want to say to please do your own reach before using any herb. This article is here just to give you the basic properties.
Okay, now pay attention because I am about to list off each herb. And at the end, I will give you a reliable source on where to get the herbs from and the ingredients of my favorite blends.
Lets dive in!
The sweet smell of lavender just makes me feel so calm and relaxed. This scent is found in many different natural products, but not many people know that you can actually smoke it. Here are some benefits.
Magick and Spiritual properties: warding off evil, associated with divination and the third eye.
Physical properties: calming, aids in sleep and anxiety
I love to smoke this at night, right before bed, or a relaxing evening in the house.
Out of all of the herbs, this might be my favorite. This herb came to me in a lucid dream. In my dream, a spiritual teacher came to me and told me to take mugwort for my third eye. At this time, I had heard of mugwort but was not sure about what it was for. Here are some benefits.
Magick and Spiritual properties: third eye, lucid dreaming, psychic connection
Physical properties: regulating menstruation and calming the digestive system
My favorite time to mix this herb in is during mediations. Mugwort + cannabis (Sativa) helps clear my mind and open my third eye, allowing me to go deeper into meditation.
(Tip place this herb under your pillow for lucid dreams)
Ah yes, mint. The herb that gives everything a cool sensation. When smoking mint, that’s exactly what you will feel, a cool sensation down your throat and in your lungs as you are smoking. Not many noticeable benefits, but here are a few.
Magick and Spiritual properties: attract wealth, attract love, keep out evil, and enhance overall wellbeing
Physical properties: digestion, cool throat
I love to mix this with my cannabis just for the flavor, smell, and cool throat.
Damiana is an exciting herb. It is an ancient aphrodisiac, meaning it can cause sexual desire or excitement. I personally have never felt the sexual effects while smoking, but I have felt the excitement effect. Trying it in a tea form might help with feeling the sexual effects. Here are few more benefits:
Magick and Spiritual properties: visions, physic ability, aphrodisiac
Physical properties: Hormonal imbalance, anxiety, and depression, UTI
I like to mix damiana in my cannabis during the day. It brings me good and clean mental energy.

My favorite time for Rose is when I want time to promote self-love. This plant helped me create a deep love for myself over time.
