While smoking is generally discouraged for health, herbal smoking mixtures can be useful tools in a number of clinical applications. They can help people reduce or eliminate tobacco and Cannabis use, and are even used successfully as an adjunctive treatment for narcotics recovery. In this class, herbalist Nome McBride will explore the many herbs we use to make a smoking formula both for clinical recovery as well as ceremony or recreation. We’ll cover the different aspects of making the smoking blend including texture, mixing herbs, effects and synergies, along with a few secret tips gleaned from Nome’s years of experience. We’ll review simple techniques for you or your patients to use at home, and participants will make their own blends to keep at the end of the class.
