The Slippery Healing Herb


The Slippery Healing Herb
Althaea officinalis, also known as Marshmallow, is a smokable herb that has been used in traditional medicine since the days of ancient Greece. In the Middle Ages, it was commonly used to treat sore throats.

Interested in smoking Marshmallow? This smokable herb is sweet and soothing to the chest and throat. Its highly mucilaginous properties sooth mucus membranes in the respiratory tract, moisturizing dry passageways, gently cooling sore throats and dry coughs.

In Homer’s Iliad, Marshmallow is mentioned as a “slippery” herb helpful in treating respiratory ills, including coughs, sore throats, bronchitis and other throat/chest inflammations. It’s scientific name is Greek for “healer,” and the name Marshmallow stems from its growth in marshes of Europe, North Africa, and Asia. 

Marshmallow is often used in natural cough syrups and throat lozenges. It effectively treats whooping cough and bronchitis.

And yes, Marshmallow is great for smoking, too. It delivers a fragrant smoke that’s dreamfully soothing to the lungs, softening and moisturizing dry air passageways. Due to its terpenoids, this smokable herb is considered gently psychoactive with a mild buzz.

You Can Smoke Marshmallow…

…with your Weed.

Smoking Marshmallow with Ganja delivers a gentle balm to the smoke, soothing coughs and irritation. Not only will it make your weed stash last longer — saving you stash cash — but the Marshmallow enhances a peaceful toke that is gentler to the lungs. Its psychoactive terpenoids add an enhanced headiness to your buzz.

…with your Tobacco.

Marshmallow pairs beautifully with Tobacco, medicating the harshness of the smoke with a sweet mellow flavor. This can be a great trick for weaning off Tobacco over time.  Start with a 50/50 mix of American Spirit Tobacco and Marshmallow, then gradually reduce the amount of Tobacco down to zero.

…by itself.

Marshmallow is a dream to smoke by itself. This smokable herb moisturizes the lungs, easing dry aches with a medicinal gentleness. Its terpenoids deliver a mildly psychoactive buzz that’s heady and energy refreshing, while soothing sore membranes and relaxing the throat.
