Rolling an herbal spliff serves as one of the most powerful tools in your self-care arsenal. Pair it with artisanal intentional herbal blends and find yourself transported to a relaxing, energetic or meditative state. Rolling takes practice but once you master it, the plant kingdom opens up to you.
Importance of Rolling Your Own Herbal Spliff
First, let’s look at the entourage effect of plants compounds. The Entourage Effect is what occurs when different plant compounds combine together to create an effect greater than what they would produce on their own. For example, the terpenes in our SUN blend are: Pinene, Myrcene, Farnesene, Bisabolol, Linalool, Terpinolene, Nerol. By adding CBD or THC dominant flower, the stress relief and detoxing effects these terpenes offer are amplified.
Control Your Own Dosage
When rolling a spliff, you have control of how much of each herb affects you. In comparison to a commercial cigarette, rolling your own botanical smoke allows you to control your consumption by customizing your dosage. Many factors should be taken into consideration like your body size, diet and personal smoking intention.
Get to Know each Plant
This is the fun part of the plant kingdom. Getting to know each plant individually. Having the ability to roll your own herb will introduce you to a new world of plant allies. Did you know there are multiple ways of using herbs?
