Mullein is one of those plants that definitely give you a different perspective on smoking. It has a long history as a healing herb with its main reputation as a respiratory remedy.¹
Native American treated asthma by drying and smoking the mullein leaves or burning the leaves in a fire and inhaling the rising smoke to open airways.²
It also has been noted that smoking can reduce the occurrence of some conditions like endometrial cancer, ulcerative colitis, Kaposi’s sarcoma, breast cancer, preeclampsia, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease and atopic disorders such as allergic asthma. These protective affects are attributed to the anti-inflammatory properties of nicotine, which interferes with these conditions.³
I don’t recommend to pick up the habit of smoking, especially commercial cigs but I do recommend to do your homework and realize that tobacco and cannabis is a herb therefore ALSO a medicine and the act of smoking is one of the many ways you can ingest medicine.
