Herbs Used As Cannabis Alternatives

One of the most common things you hear people complaining about these days is that there's no weed to be found. We have heard this complaint so many times that we thought it was high time that we shared some of our recommendations for the best natural cannabis alternatives.

Our top four recommendations for natural Cannabis alternatives are as follows:

Damiana

Damiana (Turnera aphrodisiaca) is likely the world's most popular Cannabis alternative. Sourced from its native Mexico, dried Damiana looks almost identical to ground up bud.  Because of this it is often used as a base for herbal smoking mixtures or to stretch out ones stash. When vaped or smoked (in a water-pipe is best), Damiana produces a mild Cannabis like euphoria lasting up to an hour and a half. Damiana can also be drank as tea or soaked in liquor to produce a more aphrodisiac effect. Damiana is used in traditional Mexican medicine as a tonic, aphrodisiac and ant-depressant. Damiana can be purchased right here @ MindFuel

Marihuanilla

Marihuanilla is smoked in Chiapas, Mexico as a Marijuana substitute. Marihuanilla is a nice mild tasting smoke with a nice relaxing aroma. It is also used as a herbal remedy in TCM for female complaints, as a heart tonic and for relaxation and relief from stress, pain and insomnia. Marihuanilla can also be enjoyed as a relaxing and medicinal tea. You can purchase Marihuanilla right here @ MindFuel

Klip Dagga

Klip Dagga is known as 'Mota' in Mexico, where it was used as a marijuana substitute. Also smoked by African tribesman. Klip Dagga is known in Trinidad as shandilay and the leaves are brewed as a tea for fever, coughs, womb prolapse and malaria. Our experiments with smoking and vaping Klip Dagga leaves and flowers resulted in mild Marijuana like euphoria lasting about one hour. You can purchase Klip Dagga right here @ MindFuel

Wild Dagga

Wild Dagga (Leonotis leonurus) is smoked by South African Tribesman for its euphoric and inebriating effects. It is often combined with Cannabis to potentate the effects of each. Wild Dagga's effects are far more prominent when smoking in a social situation, making it a good smoke for partying or dancing. Wild Dagga has been used in traditional medicine to treat many conditions including fevers, headaches, coughs, female complaints and snakebites. You can purchase Wild Dagga online right here @ MindFuel.

Extracts and Blends Can Be More Potent

Many users prefer to use Damiana, Marihuanilla, Klip Dagga and Wild Dagga in an extract form such as our herbal resins, or in a herbal blend such as our Triple Dagga Mix.

Each Herb is Unique

While there is no single herb that exactly replicates all of the many wonderful benefits of Cannabis, there certainly are some herbs that do offer some similar benefits as well as have their own unique beneficial or enjoyable effects.

As always we encourage the use of a vaporizer as a healthier alternative to smoking.

MindFuel Tip: You can further enhance the effects the above herbs by adding CBX Terpene Drops. See our blog post: What Are Terpenes?
