Cannabis and tobacco go hand in hand. However, there are many alternatives which not only open up new dimensions of taste, but that are also healthier than tobacco. Some of them are also psychoactive and enhance or complement the smoker’s experience.
Are you one of the many people who mix cannabis with tobacco? Why?
Tobacco contains nicotine and at least 250 toxic substances that will damage your health. For decades, the cigarette industry kept telling us that tobacco was the one and only plant for smokers.
It is true that it has been used for centuries in many cultures, but plenty of other plants were used too. They were not only smoked for pleasure, but were also used in traditional healing ceremonies. Damiana, for example, was one of the Maya peoples’ most important medicinal plants.
Over the last few years, more and more natural tobacco mixes have come onto the market that do not contain any chemical additives. There are also mixtures that contain no tobacco at all and which are becoming ever more popular.
