Lavender is sold as a tobacco alternative and is used as an agent in vapor. Lavender flowers are marketed specifically for their natural healing properties and alleviation of ailments such as stress, insomnia, anxiety and depression. Lavender is said to be effective in alleviating pain from headaches, toothaches and nerves.
Lavender is purported to be very potent, and vendors recommend smoking only a very small amount at a time. Lavender is a popular additive to vaporizers because of its low vaporizing temperature and its gradual effects. Other herbs that can be smoked include sage, lemon balm, catnip, raspberry leaves and mullein.
