“Herbal cigarettes” are sometimes perceived as safer than regular cigarettes. Tobacco-free Herbal cigarettes will not produce nicotine dependence; however inhaled smoke of any kind is dangerous.
Herbal cigarettes are a prime example. They look exactly like regular cigarettes and come in different flavors including menthol, cherry, and vanilla. Because they don’t contain tobacco, they can be sold legally to smokers of any age. Herbal cigarettes contain a blend of herbs including marshmallow (the plant, not the hot chocolate topping), passion flower, jasmine, and ginseng. These herbs are staples of health-food stores, and they’re generally safe — until they’re set on fire.
Herbal cigarettes ARE a healthy (er) alternative to smoking tobacco. And they’re just what some people need to replace that habit of lighting up a “cancer stick”. Herbal cigarettes are saving millions of people from the Terrible Tobacco, and helping them to kick the smoking habit altogether. This is the final step in the process.
