Are you looking to smoke, but want to keep a clear mind or refrain from traditionally addictive tobacco cigarettes? Well, there’s actually a whole variety of plants out there that are safe to smoke, some even boasting calming and mood enhancing benefits. Some, like Chrysanthemum flower or Holy Basil, have long been used as tobacco alternatives.

Here, I’ve provided a small graphic of safe to smoke herbs that can easily be bought dried and ready to roll online. If you want to check out more about the specifics of each herb and their potential affects, I suggest checking out this article by Thrillist.

Happy smoking!
